Asus ROG G752 Review

Asus ROG G752

Once all but a misnomer, today there are more gaming notebooks to choose from than ever. While the trend lately has favored more more svelte and understated gaming laptops, machines packing a big screen and big performance haven’t gone anywhere.

 

Asus’s enthusiast gamer hardware and accessory line, Republic of Gamers (ROG), includes a range of ROG PCs and laptops packing the latest performance hardware into distinct chassis and frames that are aimed to stand out.

 

Following last year’s highly-praised Asus ROG G751, the Asus ROG G752 is another portable PC gaming beast that features a distinctive design and plenty of oomph to run even the most demanding of PC games at the highest settings.

 

Although this 17.3-inch monster is available in a variety of high-end configurations, the model sent to techradar for review (a G752VT, specifically) features an Intel Skylake, 2.6GHz quad-core i7 processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 128GB solid-state drive (SSD) alongside 1TB of hard disk storage, and a super-fast GeForce GTX 970M graphics card with 3GB of video memory.

 

With beefy specifications and Asus’s renowned build quality in tow, there’s a lot to like about this massive machine, coupled with a few surprises along the way.

Asus E402MA review

Asus E402MA review

There was once a time when nothing but netbooks consumed the sub-£200 ($300/AUS$411) price bracket, but fortunately Microsoft and its partners have recently done a lot to drive down the price of larger, considerably more usable laptops.

 

With the advent of true cloud applications such as Office 365, and a variety of streaming services that have quickly overtaken locally-stored media, lean machines such as the Asus E402MA are making ground at the budget end of the market alongside similar notebooks like the smaller Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 11.

 

Packing a 14.6-inch screen, the E402MA has a relatively modest set of specifications: a quad-core Intel N3540 M processor clocked at up to 2.66GHz is paired with merely 2GB of RAM and a rather paltry 32GB of storage.

Asus ZenPad S 8.0 review

Asus ZenPad S 8.0 review

Asus brought one of the first Android Honeycomb 3.0 tablets to the market in 2011 in the form of the EeePad Transformer, and has been plugging away at the tablet scene ever since in an effort to create the fabled ‘iPad killer’ so many Android-lovers are looking for.

 

While the company has continued to impress, with some serious improvements in its Transformer line of tablets, few tablets other than the Google-branded original Nexus 7 have managed to sell in significant numbers.

 

Asus has the Apple iPad Mini 4 firmly in its sights with its latest attempt, the Asus ZenPad S 8.0, which carries a low price tag of £169.99 ($199 or AU$279) – that’s almost half the price of the cheapest 7.9-inch tablet from Apple.

Asus Transformer Book T200 review

Asus’ T100 Transformer Book came out just over a year ago, offering a full Windows tablet experience that easily out-did failing Windows RT devices of the time. It has since been one of our favourite laptop / tablet hybrids to emerge, packing Intel’s new breed of Z-series Atom processors.

 

The newer and larger brother, the T200, keeps the things we liked about its fully-fledged Windows 8.1 predecessor, but packs a larger 11.6″ screen and faster processor, throwing in some extra ports and a handy 2.5″ drive bay into the keyboard dock, too.

Asus Eee Pad Transformer – Unboxing

3

On the beautifully sunny Easter bank holiday Monday I finally managed to sniff out a source of stock of the Asus Eee Pad TF101 at an electrical megastore at Cribbs Causeway in Bristol.  

Ever since I first got a hands on with the device at this year’s Gadget Show Live, I knew it was a great alternative to the Motorola Xoom, coming in £100 cheaper at £379.  The added bonus of the keyboard dock was the final piece that sold it to me.  Unfortunately, no keyboard docks seem to be currently available, so expect pictures of that when we do a full review of the device…

This week the Birmingham NEC played host to the 3rd Gadget Show Live exhibition.  The show was expanded this year with a much larger gaming hall and proper food facilities meaning not so many of the horrendous lines as there was last year!

The crowd also welcomed the return of the ‘Super Theatre’ Live show where the well known faces of the Channel 5 show came out to emulate the capers of their television series and please the crowd…
