Upgrade options and comfort
The hardware of the GL752 is very powerful, which doesn’t come as a surprise, keeping in mind that it’s part of the ROG series. The machine weights is a bit hefty weighing at about 3.52 kg (7.76 lbs), but we suspect the plastic version, which is more widely spread in Europe, will weigh a little bit less.
The bottom piece provides easy upgrade via a small service lid – you’ll be able to reach the HDD, RAM slots, and the M.2 SSD. Moreover, the laptop provides superb keyboard experience with the red LED backlight and the 1.8mm key travel that will prove useful not only when gaming, but for typing as well.
Display and sound
As we already mentioned, the machine has a 17-inch display with a matte finish, TN panel with FHD (1920×1080) resolution which is a step down from the 15-inch model, but we will make sure to check that out in our full review.
The machine also offers high-quality sound, thanks to the SonicMaster technology paired with the so-called AudioWizard to help adjust all the available settings of the speakers, headset, and any device of this type.
Okay, so we’ve arrived at the most important section from our preview of this gaming beast – the hardware. ROG GL752 boasts Intel’s latest generation CPU – Core i7-6700HQ, GeForce GTX 960M GPU and a lot of storage space. Also, we already mentioned that the machine has an M.2 slot that goes along with 1TB HDD.
The device offers up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM, except for the standard 8GB configurations. We’re eager to start working on our full in-depth review of the GL752, so make sure to follow our updates on the matter.
