Asus’ new gaming laptop, the 17.3″ ROG G751, is part of the Republic of Gamers line. Programmable macro and quick-launch (for Steam, games and other commonly-used features) keys on the (backlit) keyboard help gamers control the action, and a new ‘ROG Key’, on the numpad, launches the Gaming Centre dashboard. Asus’ Gaming Centre shows system information and game profile settings.

Running Windows 8.1 on a 2.5GHz quad-core Core i7 (Haswell) processor, the G751 uses an Nvidia Geforce GTX970M or GTX980M GPU. Real-time overclocking can be boosted up to 5% by Asus’ Turbomaster technology. The laptop is cooled by three heat pipes, directing heat to dual independent fans and copper heatsinks.

The G751 has 1920 x 1080 resolution and an antiglare screen. 24GB of RAM is installed, with the capacity for 32GB. The HDD is 1TB, but a 256GB SSD is also built in. HDMI, VGA, USB 3.0 (x4) and Thunderbolt ports are featured.

Available now, the G751 costs $1,500.
