Reviews for the Asus G751JY-DH72X
Source: Laptop Media
The reason we included in the comparison the 18.4-inch Dell Alienware 18, which costs EUR2500 is more than clear – there aren’t many competitors of G751 in its price range. The GPU of the Taiwanese beast is not even in SLI/CF configuration so the power you get won’t need any special profiles or not supported by some games, for instance. The 68 903 points in 3DMark Cloud Gate are just 2% lower than the Alienware 18 (2x Radeon R9 M290X with 4GB GDDR5, CrossFire) and the price of the Dell model is 67% higher than the basic ASUS G751 configuration with GTX 980M. If we look closer into the specs – the Alienware doesn’t even have IPS display – one of the big advantages of G751. It’s unnecessary to praise the sound, image quality, cooling system of the notebook as the tests above speak for themselves.

Although the Asus G751 is a really big and expensive gaming laptop, and not even the best performer, it's a great machine to use. If you're going to spend hours gaming, using the G751 as a desktop replacement, you'll really appreciate the low fan noise and comfortable keyboard.

So how does the Asus ROG G751JY-DH72X end up on top? By beating the former Editors' Choice Origin EON17-SLX on price (the Asus rig is $700 less), better ergonomics, double the system memory, and much more storage (1.5TB vs. 990GB). The G751JY-DH72X is also a quarter-pound lighter than the EON17-SLX, has a more durable power adapter connector, and lasted almost two more hours on our battery rundown test. Sure, the Origin rig is ultimately a bit faster on games, but not always significantly so, and certainly not worth the extra $700 in the balance of features and performance.

Model: The Asus G751JY-DH72XA is typical gaming machine that looks the part and comes with performance packed. It will satisfy the most hard-core of gamers. At first glance, the dark grey laptop with brushed aluminium highlights on the cover sets the stage for an aggressive machine while the two red air vents at the rear totally seal the deal that we are dealing with a gaming device. Keyboard on the Asus G751JY-DH72X is very responsive with tile keys and red LED backlight.
The overall profile is kept fairly simple with strong lines and most of the I/O is to the right of the laptop. The stunning anti-glare 17.3 inch IPS display features an aspect ratio of 16:9 and FHD resolution. The Windows 8.1 laptop comes with an Intel Core i7 4860HQ quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz, 32 GB DDR3L SDRAM, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX980M GPU with 4 GB GDDR5 VRAM and a 1 TB HHD with 512GB SSD storage combination setup.
There is definitely no shortage of raw performance power here. Other features include a Blu-ray writer, card reader, HD webcam, 4 USB 3.0 ports, a Thunderbolt port, and various display ports.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M:
Fast high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell GM204 chip from the GeForce GTX 900M series.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
4860HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.6 GHz. Offers an integrated Iris Pro Graphics 5200 GPU and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
