The G752 will set you back at least $1499 USD with G-Sync, Skylake, and dust-release cooling.

Asus had previously revealed the ROG G752 early last month and is once again showing it off for good measure in San Francisco as the manufacturer is now beginning to take pre-orders.

The ROG series holds some of the best gaming notebooks, especially the revered 17.3-inch models. The G751, for example, currently sits high on our Top 10 gaming list and we see no reason why its successor won't take the same spot again. The G751 and even its predecessor are quiet notebooks despite the high-end hardware underneath. The new G752 ups the ante with vapor chamber cooling as found on certain GTX 980 video cards for desktops. Most of the notebook is now brushed aluminum, which is similar to the G501 series. This means that the signature rubberized matte black surfaces of the G751 are now only reserved for the palm rests and keyboard portions of the notebook.

Additional hands-on time with the notebook reveals a keyboard with surprisingly more travel than the GX700. The massive grilles on the rear edge and the optical drive on the left edge mean that nearly all ports have been relegated to the right side of the notebook. This can be an issue for right-handed players as table space can be of concern. Also, we've been told that the GPU was not made to be upgradeable as the small maintenance hatch underneath will only allow access to the HDD, 2x M.2 slots, and 4x RAM slots. It's too bad that the notebook can be equipped with up to the GTX 980M only instead of the desktop GTX 980.

The G752 starts at $1499 and will ship later this month. Expect our full review to come as we move closer to launch time.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
