This gaming laptop comes with an aluminum back body on the exterior and a silver aluminum finish on the keyboard as well. An aluminum finish with a sturdy and well-built body is a signature ASUS design.
It comes with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M which is more than enough for gaming on low to medium settings.
The 8 GB DDR3L SDRAM is upgradable. Additionally, the laptop supports 1 TB hard drive, so there is plenty of storage space for gaming software and saved multimedia files.
One of the major attractions is the screen. With a 17 inch screen that supports a full HD IPS display, it has one of the best wide-angled displays currently in the market. The screen resolution set at 1920×1080 offers remarkably good color accuracy, clarity and sharpness.
The fan noise is almost inaudible. Users may just hear a very low noise on gaming.
The cooling system on this machine is pretty good. It has two vents at the top and bottom and as opposed to vents at the back and the sides it works well and doesn’t overheat.
In terms of audio and audibility, the speaker is quite good for a laptop.
The Cons – ASUS X751LX-DB71
The keyboard is not so impressive with an average typing experience. Also, it doesn’t have a backlight which is a major disadvantage for users who use their laptops in the night.
In terms of battery life, this model is a little disappointing. Users may want to keep the laptop on charge while playing games.
The processor on this laptop is a dual core i7. While this is good processor, it could benefit a lot more with a quad core i7 processor.
It has a weaker processor in comparison with let’s say, a gaming laptop with GTX960M.
Overall, the ASUS X751LX-DB71 is a good gaming laptop that offers as much as its specifications allow. ASUS has given a lot of emphasis on storage and display with this model. This gaming laptop is designed for multimedia users and gamers who are looking for a capable machine with good gaming features on a budget that isn’t necessarily high. However, it does have limitations in terms of battery life and processors, so it isn’t suitable for buyers who hold these features non-negotiable. The price range falls on a more convenient scale compared to other gaming laptops. Therefore, users who are looking for a gaming experience under 1000$ can definitely benefit from this purchase.
