A new Asus G750 gaming notebook configuration has arrived on the market. It’s called the G750JW-BBI7N05 and represents good news for gamers without too much cash. With a price tag of $1,250, the Asus G750JW-BBI7N05 is the cheapest model in the new 17.3-inch G750 series. Luckily, it isn’t much crippled if you compare it to the similar G750JW-DB71 configuration selling for $1,500, and still offers the Intel Core i7-4700HQ quad-core up to 3.4GHz processor, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M 2GB dedicate graphics, full HD display resolution, and a 1TB hard drive. The differences are in the RAM and warranty departments. The G750JW-BBI7N05 has 8GB, down from 12GB. However, difference between 8GB and 12GB in real world use, including 3D gaming, isn’t visible. The price gap is partially due to warranties. The cheaper model has a 1-year standard warranty, while the more expensive has the robust Asus 360 (1 0 2 24) Warranty package, including One Year Accidental Damage Protection, free 2-way overnight shipping for warranty related services, and non-stop technical support, as well as 0 days Zero Bright Dot Guaranty LCD replacement.
The low price is a good recommendation in favor of the G750JW-BBI7N05 and if you add all other goodies the new gaming notebook from Asus delivers, it’s probably the smartest buying choice in its category. Let’s just mention its stereo speakers and subwoofer, amplified headphone output, all necessary ports, slots, and networking features, and a backlit keyboard sitting in the middle of the aluminum-covered base of the laptop. Furthermore, this rig has a ThunderBolt I/O port, which is a feature reserved only for higher-end Windows laptops and MacBooks.
