Summary: I have been ready for some time to upgrade my formerly very nice and relatively powerful HP notebook computer to something more substantial. As a result, I started doing a lot of research. It did not take long for me to settle on what I consider to be the perfect machine for my needs which typically require having several processor/memory intensive programs open at the same time. These programs include Microsoft Excel, Word, and PowerPoint, Minitab statistical analysis software, image editing software, and a very sophisticated wastewater modeling program. Based on an extensive amount of research, my choice became this Asus G75VW 17.3-inch notebook.
This Asus model is considered to be a "gaming" laptop and though I don't play games on my computer, anyone doing intensive computer work should seriously consider a gaming platform because of the incredible performance specifications these computers have. I spent all of Saturday and Sunday installing my software on this new computer. Everything installed without any problems at all. I am now at a project site doing wastewater modeling for a customer with my new, and very beautiful, Asus laptop, and I could not be more thrilled with the quality and performance of my computer.
Just as I am so impressed with my new laptop, so is everyone who sees it. To begin with, the screen is awesome. It has the perfect brightness, clarity, non-glare, high resolution I was looking and hoping for. This is a very, very well-built, powerful, QUIET, and cool-running notebook. I have truly put this machine to maximum use and it has performed flawlessly. Without hesitation, I give this laptop a five star rating.
But you must know what you are buying in considering this particular laptop. So to be clear: This is a big, heavy machine. Absolutely!! But it fits well in a computer backpack and though I'm getting on in years I don't find traveling, from New Orleans to Seattle, for example, to be particuarly difficult with something so substantial. I wanted a large computer. I need a large screen and a full-sized keyboard. Such wants equate to large size and some decent weight. But these potential "negatives" are easily managed.
I have read about people having problems with the graphics card in this machine because it is so new and drivers may be an issue. I have not had any problems with the graphics card. The SSD which holds the operating system provides an incredibly fast boot up. This is a fast, powerful notebook. My previous HP notebook operated very hot and actually was uncomfortable to use at times. Temperature is a non-issue with this Asus model. I actually can't quite believe how quiet and cool-running this notebook is given the demands I place upon it. Quiet and coolness are two very important factors for me. I think I've said enough and you can see how pleased I am with my purchase.
