The ASUS ROG G752VY-DH72 features a 17.3-inch IPS display with 1080p resolution, a quad-core 2.6GHz Intel “Skylake” Core i7-6700HQ with HyperThreading, and 32GB RAM. If you need more RAM, this laptop supports up to 64GB worth of memory across four slots. For storage, there’s a 1TB hard drive and a 256GB NVMe SSD. Graphics, meanwhile, are handled by Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 980M.
This laptop also comes loaded with dedicated cooling modules for the CPU and GPU, a backlit anti-ghosting keyboard, and Thunderbolt 3. It is heavy, though—all that powerful hardware in a clamshell case brings the total weight close to 10 pounds.
In case you’re wondering: Yes, this machine does sport a last-gen GPU. And yes, it’s true that you can get a slimmer and lighter laptop with a better GPU for about the same price (like MSI’s GS63VR). However, this Asus laptop still has its charms. You get a big screen, generous amount of RAM, and easy access for DIY memory and storage upgrades.
