Packaging and content

ASUS ROG G750JZ

The box is made of thick cardboard. Structural reliability is excellent. There are no multi-colored emblems and bright colors. And we think it’s a good option of decoration. This design idea only emphasizes that securely hidden inside product does not require cheap advertising.

In contrast, the box is made in strict black and matte with a slight silver shimmer. It looks beautiful and prestigious. The front side has a pleasant roughness. It has a laptop image. Side parts are decorated with information about the technical characteristics of the device and the data of supplied set.

ASUS ROG G750JZ

In a you can find:

  • PSU with capacity 230 W;
  • Power cable;
  • Removable battery;
  • User’s manual.

Of course, we would like to see a complete corporate cover or bag and the gaming mouse. But all this only would increase the final cost of the product. But not everyone needs these accessories, so the "spartan" set due can be considered as ASUS desire to make the cost of new item more affordable. However, the main focus is made to high-performance internal components. That is a plain package design, only the required set, but at the same time upscale hardware components and stylish design of the laptop - that's the basic concept of ASUS ROG G750JZ.

Design

It's not a secret of the fact that the ASUS designers take an inspiration from the most advanced inventions of mankind. It may be the Italian racing car or American supersonic fighter. Leitmotif is power and swiftness.

ASUS ROG G750JZ

The design of ASUS ROG G750JZ has details of famous stealth invisible aircraft F-22 «Stealth». Abundance of cut edges, bevelled line on top of the laptop, predatory grin of two cooling grills on the rear panel, steep sections of the sides - all this makes to think that clearly verified aerodynamics, which is so necessary for a modern fighter of "top class". Thus such a design allows us to significantly make laptop visually thinner.

Case color is matt black. And in case of relighting it has coal shade. The same aspect can be found in design of sports cars.

The case is made of high quality plastic. Lid on the top panel is made of soft-touch coating which does not leave fingerprints. It consists of the chrome ASUS logo and brand illuminated ASUS ROG (Republic of Gamers) logo. The inner side of the monitor unit as the laptop base has a rough surface.

The workspace is represented by a sheet of aluminum. Here are: the power button, which has a stylish design of prismatic pyramid; keyboard unit and a large comfortable touchpad with classical layout. The keypad buttons have a smooth travel and white adjustable backlighting. Also it is worth to note a beautiful in terms of design and time-consuming to perform aspect: each key keyboard can be found in a separate slot that looks stylish and expensive.

In the bottom of the laptop there are four rubber legs that allow reliably place the gadget even on slippery surfaces. Also the size (410 x 318 x 17 ~ 58 mm) and weight (nearly 5 kg) promote the reliability of fixation. However it is important to note that such dimensions of ASUS ROG G750JZ not accompany its easy transportation.

Tightly fitted case parts and its rigidity make it easy to provide the opening of the top cover of the screen with one hand. The maximum angle is about 135° which is convenient to perform any tasks.

To sum up the overall picture, the design and build quality are high. Here you will not find backlash, gaps, and other factory defects.

Elements layout

ASUS ROG G750JZ as a brilliant representative of its class has all the necessary modern ports and connectors. Their arrangement and placement will not cause any difficulties for the user. Everything is accessible and athandy.

On the right side there are two ports for headphone and microphone connector, two USB 3.0, high-speed port Thunderbolt, D-Sub and HDMI video outputs, RJ45 network port and the charger socket.

On the front face you can find five LED indicators of the laptop that allows you to quickly determine the status of the main devices.

Rear part does not have connectors or ports. The only items are ventilating holes of the cooling system.

Special attention is paid to bottom panel. In addition to ventilation grille for air intake by cooling system there is a relatively large lid, removing which we gain access to the internal arrangement of the device. You can get two of the four SO-DIMM-slots for RAM, two mSATA-interfaces and one SATA-connector.

Input device

ASUS ROG G750JZ

The notebook ASUS ROG G750JZ uses full-sized island keyboard. Buttons are at sufficient distance from each other which prevents double-clicking. Symbols and numbers have a standard layout, and located on familiar places. This primarily refers to [Ctrl] and [Fn], so I do not have to get used or retrained.

Surface is matte and soft to the touch. The only disadvantage is just the fact that it collects fingerprints.

ASUS ROG G750JZ

Symbols on buttons are marked by laser engraving. It also gives hope that with time the elements will not be erased.

Keys based on scissor-membrane mechanism are rather large (size of lettered key is 15 x 15 mm, and the functional F-keys - 15 x 11 mm), it is easy to press and have a very smooth and short travel.

It is worth to note the high quality of performance: there are no gaps. A keyboard unit has sufficient rigidity and bends only under strong pressure.

ASUS ROG G750JZ

The impressive size of the laptop allowed to place a big enough touchpad 117 x 66 mm. It is edged by chrome inset on the aluminum surface.

Touchpad provides good sensitivity, easy finger slide and support of multi-touch gestures.

But for gamers we recommend the use gaming mouse or gamepad.
