Pros
Great gaming machine with great design and best combination
Cons
Not armed with the best available gaming components
• • •

For me I bought it from xotic pc and it is Asus G75vw RH-71 US version, and upgraded with core i7-3940XM, 32GB 1600 MHz, running windows 8(64 bit), Intel Advance 6235+bluetooth 4.0 HS( dual channgel), 3Gb of Nvidia GEFORCE GTX 670MX and 2TB of 5400rpm HDD (Raids 0). It can run any games without any problems at almost all (high 45-90fps) and some (ultra high 25-35ps). The benchmark score for mine is 1501. It is all that combination but not a power house yet. All in all, I would say it rocks in any circumstances.I chose it over Sager Np9570 with tons of better upgrades but fan make loud noises and the worst is the design+ super bulky I mean it is much more heavier than any gaming machine and I can't stand it. It costs me AUD3500+AUD250 shipping fees+AUD441(Gov Tax) to reach to me. Hope it helps you all. Cheers

Was going to opt for the equivalent alienware laptop but am more than happy with my choice to go with ASUS

Pros
Great Gaming System
Cons
HardDrive, Audio

This is a great system. I have the G75VW-BBK5, the Best Buy version. It has the same general specs as listed above, but only a 1 TB hard-drive, 8GB, Nvidia GTX 660M 2GB, 1080p, etc. The hard-drive is very slow, its a Samsung 1TB 5400 drive, rating a 5.9 on the windows scale.
Other than that this is a GREAT system for the money, $1,249 Best Buy.
I play Aion and can run at the highest graphics settings and this system does not even break a sweat. In Aion it is very smooth no glitches or skips at all.
The external audio is pretty bad, not a system if you looking for stock audio quality. I use skull candy ear-buds and that is great.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
