X751LX is 17 inch full HD laptop with good gaming capabilities a feature hard to find in a laptop under 1000$.
ASUS X751LX is a 17.3 inch gaming laptop under 1000$ designed by ASUS aiming towards the multimedia users and the casual games.
The laptop has an Intel Core i7-5500U 2.4 GHz Processor (Turbo up to 3 GHz) with 8GB DDR3L SD RAM, a NVIDIA GeForce GTX950M GPU for graphics processing and 1 TB hard drive at 7200rpm. It is meant to provide a good gaming experience without breaking the bank.
PERFORMANCE IN GAMES
As processor goes the laptop has a dual core i7 which is a good processor but for gaming laptop this is draw back since most competition have quad core I7 processors, X751 should still run with out much problems most of the games since the CPU is not as important as GPU but this is big minus for this laptop.
It has NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M with 2GB GDDR3 VRAM which is adequate for gaming at medium settings. However the laptop does seem to have a weaker graphics processor when compared to the competition which have a GTX960 but does have a larger display.
The laptop is provided with 8GB DDR3 RAM but is upgradable to 16 GB as it supports two 8 GB sticks.
Overall Asus will provide you with a good experience, but playing games on high setting will not be recommended. It could use SSD disk or SSD cache, but it is very uncommon for laptops in this price range.

The laptop supports a 17 inch Full HD (1920X1080) IPS display, which is the biggest displays available in the market for the price range. The displays colour reproduction seems to be good, texts turn out to be sharp and saturated. Overall a good display.

It is not the best gaming laptop in the price range. But if you’re looking for an overall good laptop for casual gaming with a large screen for media consumption and are on a budget then it is definitely a good buy.
