Asus G74SX 17.3" Black Gaming Laptop Computer, Model G74SXRH71
Bringing the breathtaking performance of a desktop gaming PC to a compact laptop has been a challenge, but this is exactly what the ASUS G74SX-RH71 achieves. It's full high-definition gaming and multimedia packed into a sleek form with the latest technology. This 17.3" laptop boasts an FHD display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, 2.2GHz 2nd generation Intel Core i7-2670QM processor with Turbo Boost 2.0, 750GB hard drive, 12GB memory and NVIDIA GTX560M graphics, all wrapped up in a sleek and sophisticated black finish.
- Hail to the King
The world of portable gaming has a new reigning king. The G74SX is a performance notebook that imposes its will with the combined power of a second generation Intel® Core™ i7 CPU and NVIDIA® GTX 560M GPU with 3GB of GDDR5 VRAM. A score of P2008 in 3DMark11 and P9180 in 3DMark Vantage takes over the reins as the fastest notebook in the land. Support for DirectX®11 ensures that you’ll not only have the fastest rig in town, but also the ability to play games as they were meant to be seen for a long time.
- Stealth and Strength
Like its predecessor, the G74SX design was inspired by sharp polygonal shapes, but this time inspiration came from the US Navy’s Sea Shadow stealth ship and modern day aircraft carriers. Like the stealth ship, opponents will never know what hit ‘em, and like an aircraft carrier, the G74 has the firepower to shock and awe the competition.
- True-to-life 3D Video & Audio
The G74SX is great for gaming, but its hardware is serious business. It offers the best 3D ecosystem for PCs, offering 3D content creation and editing. It’s powered with NVIDIA® 3D Vision™, so games, photos and movies are all able to be enjoyed like never before. There’s also the ability to output the G74SX to a 3D TV, so you can enjoy 3D entertainment from the living room. Pair that up with THX + EAX 5.0 3D gaming audio technology, and together they make the G74 not only a great gaming notebook, but also a hub for multimedia entertainment.
- Get Comfy
Gaming is something to be enjoyed, so why not be more comfortable for extended gaming sessions? Fatigue will be a thing of the past, thanks to the G74’s 5° incline keyboard designed to provide a better ergonomic angle, as well as super comfortable rubber-like palm rests that’s easy on the palm and wrist. There’s also more space between the keyboard and number pad, so it more resembles a desktop keyboard.
- Always Cool
With the amount of power in the G74SX, some serious cooling is needed. A unique venting design pulls air from underneath the notebook, cooling the system down, then vents it through the rear, keeping hot air away from the user and reducing ambient noise for prolonged gaming.
