The Asus G74 is a 17.3'' gaming laptop loaded with powerful components. This is the top of the line model from Asus's G series notebook line up. It features Intel Core i7 quad core processors and Nvidia GeForce GTX 560M dedicated graphics. To be fair, like many 17'' or 18'' gaming notebooks the G74 should be considered more as a portable desktop at over 10lbs (inc. charger). Other features include a 3D Full HD display option, solid state drive option, and Blu-Ray combo drive option. Like all Asus models the G74 is backed by a 2 year global warranty (when purchased in the US). Other notable functions include dual hard drive slots, media card reader, and up to 16GB of DDR3 memory. Asus makes full use of the available space by putting in a full size keyboard with a 10 key number pad. Some features from the previous G7 series notebooks are retained, this include the unique exterior design and cooling system as well as the high quality speakers and audio enhancements. The Asus G74 series of notebooks is an excellent option for gamers who seek a reasonably portable computer that packs some serious performance.
