  • The ASUS G750JX is a powerful and striking Haswell gaming laptop that delivers impressive graphics performance for hundreds less than the competition.


  • Overall, the Asus is a superb gaming laptop. With the Blu-ray drive, it betters the Alienware 17 (its top competitor), but both seem expensive compared to other options on the market. A high-end gaming laptop may be a step too far for your wallet. But, if you can afford it, this is a superb buy.


  • The Asus G750 is the pinnacle of the company’s drive to produce mass-market gaming laptops with incredible power at an affordable price. There’s almost nothing wrong with this system, and the few downsides worth mentioning, like the matte display’s lack of visual depth, are balanced by other advantages. We could recommend this laptop even if its price was similar to the competition. But it’s not; instead, the price is lower. A similar Alienware M17x, for example, is $2,000, while Origin’s EON17 costs over $2,200 when configured with almost identical hardware.


  • Watching movies on a tablet is well and good, but to get real immersive entertainment, a 15.6-inch laptop with multiple speakers like the Asus N550JV-DB72T is the portable equivalent of a home theater system, plus it also qualifies as a power user system.


  • The Asus N550JV-CN201H convinces with a decent system and gaming performance. Although the CPU significantly throttles (down to 800 MHz) under full load, you will hardly experience this in practice. The benchmark results are as expected. In addition, the notebook features a bright, contrast-rich and matte IPS display and a big storage capacity and can read Blu-ray disks. The battery life is also appropriate for a notebook with that much performance. In addition, we enjoyed the great audio system.


  • An excellent entertainment laptop, the ASUS N550JV features a booming quad-speaker system, a beautiful touch screen and good gaming power.


  • The Asus VivoBook V551LB-DB71T desktop replacement laptop is deceptively sleek and slim, offering category leading performance and battery life that will carry you through the day.


  • While the current price point of around $1000 doesn't seem unreasonable, the slightly thicker, but much more performance-oriented Asus N550JV with the high-end quad-core Intel Core i7-4700HQ, matte 15.6-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, and dedicated Nvidia GeForce GT 750M seems like a much better option - especially considering that it only costs about $100 more.


  • The VivoBook V551LB is a mixed bag of highs and lows, with very good battery life, but a sub-par screen. It has a mostly premium-feeling shell, but lacks the solid-state storage or backlit keyboard that we've come to expect with a system priced at near $1,000.
    That doesn't make the VivoBook a bad option by any means. It's just not the best-balanced choice for most users.


  • The Asus VivoBook V500CA-DB71T is a decent, tractable laptop with a few flaws that keep it from scoring higher. Depending on your pickiness, this could be a perfectly adequate laptop for you and your family.


  • The biggest issue for the Asus Vivobook V500CA-DB71T may be that it's difficult to pitch to the consumer. With no real focus, the Vivobook doesn't really appear to target any specific demographic.
