Asus has a few generations of pure gaming laptop power behind them, allowing a lot of refinement from past experiences. The GL752V packs a much smaller footprint than the G53 of generations past while keeping the heat under control. The upgradeability and ease of access is fantastic compared to the glue sealed boxes that are so prevalent now. The i7 6700HQ paired with 16GB of RAM is fantastic for gaming and everyday computing. The GTX960M does pack some power, but not enough for me to consider this a capable desktop gaming PC alternative. My biggest qualm is the archaic option of only a single rotational HDD which ends up slowing down the whole experience. In the end I can see this laptop being a proper gaming solution while mobile so long as you spend the extra on a model with an SSD or purchase a M2.0 SSD and use that as your main drive and the stock 1TB as your data drive.
With all this we will be awarding the GL752V our Real Deal Award as it comes in at a great price $899-1299 and offers simple upgrades as well as great performance for most portable gamers.
