Keyboard and TouchPad
The ASUS ROG G750 comes with the now-standard island style keyboard. The keyboard is definitely comfortable to use and feels more like a desktop keyboard than a laptop keyboard, something I count as a big plus.
The keys have a great travel distance thanks to the system's thickness, though the keyboard has quite a bit more flex than I would expect to see from a system of this caliber. Considering the palm rest is aluminum, I really wouldn't expect the flex. The flex is much less pronounced around the WSAD keys, at least, so gamers won't have to worry as much about it.
Key travel and sound are good. The overall typing experience is enjoyable, though the keyboard's keys feel as though they are slightly too far apart. The keys have a smooth texture on the surface and appear to be slightly concave. The surfaces of the keys are black, which cause them to blend in with the surround. They have a good tactile feel that I could type on for hours.
The ASUS ROG G750's keyboard comes with a backlight, a feature that I love on any system. The ROG G750 provides three different brightness settings, which adds a premium feel to the system.
The touchpad is made from three pieces of material, with a large piece being the touch-enabled portion of the touchpad. The left and right click buttons are mirror images of each other, but they both sound and feel slightly cheap.
The touchpad is recessed down into the palm rest of the machine ever so slightly. The touchpad surface has a different texture than the surround, which allows you to quickly detect whether you are on the touchpad or not.
The ASUS ROG G750 features a massive 17.3-inch display with a full HD 1920x1080p resolution. The surface features a matte coating, which helps reduce glare. Despite running Windows 8, the panel is not touch-enabled.
Color reproduction on the ASUS ROG G750 isn't as good as an IPS display. It appears to make use of a TN panel, though color reproduction doesn't suffer too badly when looking at the display from an off angle.
