Asus G74SX Laptop Review

Asus G74SX-A2 laptop, the sister model of G74SX-A1 and the newest baby of the Asus Republic of Gamers continues to show off its standout features in the gaming world. Its specially designed features, exteriors, and cost make up the dream gaming partner that a gamer could have.

The A2’s design was inspired by a stealth vehicle, the US Navy Sea Shadow ship. The laptop itself has well-sculpted angles, is very sleek and features a threatening black color that is accentuated with dark silver brushed metal breaking up the blackness of the laptop. Contradicting to its look, Asus G74SX-A2 laptop’s exterior and lid are coated with a rubberized material giving it a soft, smooth and comfortable feeling which gamers would greatly appreciate during marathon sessions.

The features of this gaming device are specially designed for, of course, extreme and powerhouse gaming. A2 has a 17-inch full HD screen that gives a decent viewing with display only fading out a little bit at forty degrees. The only downside of the A2’s screen is that light reflects when under bright lights which is caused by its glossy touch. At the top of the deck located are the speakers more empowered by the THX TruStudio software that offers three sound profiles. Asus G74SX laptops also have Realtek’s HD Audio Manager so that you can customize and tune the sound. These features make A2 pump out impressive sounds. This laptop is not as portable as the other laptops in the market for it weighs at about ten pounds, which means it cannot be carried around for mobile gaming. As heavy as it weighs, this device can also handle heavy workloads. With a quad core Intel Core i7 processor which is a high-performer 2GHz chip, 16 GB of RAM, a Nividia GeForce graphic chip, it will never give you any traffic jams while gaming.

Since A2 is a rig for extensive gaming, fan vents are very important. The two big vents are located at the back of the laptop, which is a bit odd because most of the laptops have their vents on the sides. It is designed that way so that the heat is blown away from the user. Another thing that you can notice in the Asus G74SX laptop is the wide keyboard with a number pad which gives it a desktop-keyboard-feel. This is designed so that the gamers will not hit other keys while playing. The A2 also has its special keys or hot keys which are the Splendid key and the Power4Gear Hybrid key. The Splendid key is used to adjust the color, brightness, hue, contrast and skin tone by just toggling it. The Power4Gear Hybrid key on the other hand is used to switch to different power settings. A2 is designed with an enormous touchpad which provides enough room and convenience for gamers during sessions. This keyboard feature is a great improvement in the G74 series.

Asus Republic of Gamers did not fail in engineering this model. A2 has a high performance multimedia system and features that makes up a powerful gaming device. These stellar features give the Asus G74SX-A2 laptop a kicking price of $2,000. If you are looking for a reasonably priced laptop, Asus G74SX-A2 laptop could be the one.
