G752VM is found to be more interesting with the new generation of the graphics hardware but its design is as similar as a G752 older model is having before the arrival of Nvidia’s 10 series GPU.
The machine is having an angular two-tone keyboard. The Matrix-like keyboard font and red keyboard backlight indicate that these laptops are not there to check the emails on Starbucks. This laptop is not portable because it is very heavy and big in size.
The laptop is 43mm thick and 4.06 kg in weight. The 17-inch screen footprint will make you tired because you will have to take it room to room. Well, if you want to enjoy the things for a long time then you need to buy a smaller and lighter in weight.
It is similar to all of the gaming laptops, which are largely made up of high-quality plastic rather than normal metal as used in ordinary machines. In the laptops, the lid is coated with brushed aluminum for giving the extra touch to the show. The lid is featuring a color strip and logo which makes its look more beautiful and attracts gamer towards it. However, these lights can be turned off if you don’t like them.
These laptops can be a good alternative to the desktop as these laptops are large in size. The screen and the frame make the laptops perfect for every situation.
Four USB 3.0 has also been part of the laptops, two on each side. The USB-C allows you to connect your peripheral devices with the laptops. In the future, the company may install another USB-C after killing one of the ports. But right now, it is not going to happen.
Full-size HDMI, mini Display Port, and a Gigabit Ethernet socket also a part of the laptop. Asus ROG G752VM is having the separate mic for a good array of audio connectors and also having headphone jack of 3.5mm.
SPDIF output is also there to let you connect your digital headset without connecting USB. It is having a Blu-ray drive and a tray loader optical drive for the DVD multi-writer.
The screen of Asus ROG G752 may not attract you as like the other gaming laptops. The screen is 17.3-inch display and providing the resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. You may observe that the icon text look is pixellated as the resolution is switched to 1080 pixels on the monitor screen. Although, the GTX 1060 is having the graphic card which supports the 1080p gaming and is also capable of providing the good graphics in the games.
Well, if you have a desire to play ultra-high resolution games, then you should consider Asus ROG GC800 containing a Nvidia GTX 1080 GPU and also providing the option of the 4K screen. As this is a good screen and having solid color along with matt screen finish. Maximum brightness is at 34cd/ms which is very good.
The color and the contrast performance are good enough to attract the users but not impressive design as needed to dominate the market. The Virtual Machine is having 85% of the Standard RGB, but at this price, you may get 100%. At 62.5 and 71.5%, the RGB and DCI P3 standard coverage is good and have been providing sRGB coverage.
But the small problem is about contrast. Because at 569, it is the just good but at higher brightness the screen displays slight blue color, thus giving the blueish mix to the graphics. However, it is still perfect screen for the games.
G-sync, Nvidia’s hardware-powered alternative to V-sync, has also been a part of the display and halts the ugly hearings in the game and also providing you the performance benefits over V-sync.
KEYBOARD AND TRACKPAD
These laptops are capable of providing the pure performance. The company has also paid attention towards keyboard and trackpad. In the previous G-series laptops, the keyboard keys are much wider than the normal one. This style makes the typing more easy and comfortable.

Therefore, you can be able to customize or set the key sequence according to your taste and boosting the competitive gaming.
The NUM pad is also containing a feature named as ROG button which allows you to launch the gaming center app and let you know about the CPU and GPU working and gives them the information about how hot they are at the time.
The keyboard is capable of registering up almost 30 keypresses at once. This feature can be tested by a smash on the keyboard but just keep it in mind that no keypress should be missed.
The machine’s mouse buttons also provide the feel of the keyboard and they have been settled down rather than being developed into the pad. The oversized pads have been reduced to the normal size but with the lighter feel and having miniaturized space bars. This allows users to tap it easier and even faster. This gives a bit relief to the users from the awkward feeling of mouse layouts.
Actually, the pad is too large but it is frustrating to that such high-end laptops utilizes the plastic surface rather than textured glass. This does not allow users to slide their fingers in pad smoothly, as most of the gamers use the mouse so they did not notice this difference.
The Asus ROG G752VM is having a skylark-generation CPU, which is on the market for a long period of time. The laptop featuring an Intel i7-6700HQ, a quad-core CPU containing a clock speed of 2.6GHz and also having a 3.5GHz Turbo Boost.

One of the main features of Asus ROG752VM is its Nvidia GTX 1060 GPU and this is why most of the users are excited about. The company claimed that the “midrange” graphics brain are 305 faster than the last generation of the laptops.

So the user can expect that these machines are having the good cooling system for preventing the system from being hot.These laptops are perfect and do not make noise even when the users plays the game continuously for almost 30-40 mins and remain quiets as compared to the last generation of this model.
This makes this laptop more comfortable for the gamers as these machines are capable of handling the heat and noise for hours due to the good cooling system. The grille of the laptops is the main function of the cooling system which wipes out the hot air out of the laptop.
The drawback of these laptops is that its battery life is not going to be that much strong as it should be. However, the company did not design the 14nm CPU and all other core components for the good battery life.
If the users work on these laptops as like the normal PCs, the laptop battery will end in 4 hours or more. This indicates that Nvidia and Intel have made a good effort and tried to improve the efficiency of the processors as much as possible.
If the users will watch the looped video at 120cd/m2 brightness, the laptops will remain turned on for almost 3 hours and 23 minutes. And you can expect that the laptops can last for one hour if the user plays the game.
The Asus ROG G752VM also featuring speakers and headphones plugged in instead of having internal speakers. However, the top volume is satisfactory and also featuring a “bass woofer” driver at the bottom to support sound quality, a colored midrange makes the music and sound synthetic and affected.
