I’ve been looking for a nice but cost effective gaming laptop for some time now. After over a month of searching, I found the ASUS ROG G751JL-DS71 17.3-Inch Gaming Laptop which my wife purchased for me at Amazon.com. At the time of purchase, the unit cost $1199. For this price I got an awesome ASUS gaming laptop with the following specs:
- 17.3″ display screen
- 1TB of 7400 RPM hard disk drive
- 16GB of RAM
- Intel i7 processor
- NVIDIA 965M with 2GB of video RAM
At the time of this writing, I’ve had the laptop for a period of over one month. To date, I’ve used it to play awesome games like Guild Wars 2, The Witcher: Wild Hunt, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Minecraft, and Grand Theft Auto V. My experience with the unit and the games has been great to say the least.
The laptop performed extremely well. Specifically, I didn’t perceive any lag in any of the games I’ve played. Even with the graphics settings set to maximum, the laptop ran and displayed the games smoothly. In addition, the fast 7400 RPM 1TB hard disk drive really showed off ASUS ROG G751JS’s speed in terms of boot time. I could really perceive its fast boot speed having used a solid state drive on a work laptop.
I could easily run a benchmark test on the unit, but my own senses really could really tell that this unit is a computing and gaming workhorse. At the price my wife purchased this for, $1199 is well worth the price. Depending on supply and demand, the price for this awesome gaming laptop could go up or down.
I highly recommend this laptop, especially if you are looking for a cost effective entry level gaming laptop. Note that the only “entry level” about this laptop is its price.
