The ASUS G75VW (Cont’d)

Figure 10 shows the ASUS G75VW with its cover lifted. The big 17.3” screen is reflexive, which may not be good if you work (or play) with light sources at your back. The screen resolution is Full HD (1080p, i.e. 1920 x 1080), which is excellent.

At the top of the screen, you can see the HD webcam, the IR emitter that controls the 3D glasses, and the microphone.

Such a big laptop has no reason to have a compact keyboard, and the G75VW is excellent on this point. The full keyboard is comfortable and precise. The keyboard also shows that it is a gaming notebook; there is a raised dot on the “W” key. The multi-touch sensitive touchpad is big and feels excellent to use. The area around the keyboard is made of brushed aluminum, and the black area around the touchpad is covered by a rubber-like layer.

At the top-right corner are two buttons. One turns the power on and off, and the other turns the 3D feature on and off.
