With specs like this, it is easy to assume that the price for the ASUS ROG GL551JW-DS71 is going to be quite expensive?and possibly on the same range as the Alienware, Razer Blade Pro, Sager NP8652 or the EON17-X from Origins.

The display may not be as good as the Alienware or even the Razer Blade Pro but this rig totally boosts its RAM for such a low price?but let?s not forget the NVIDIA GeForce GTX960M.

As for the processor, the base speed of it is at 2.6 GHz while the Turbo Boost on the other hand, it goes way up to 3.6 GHz as posted on Intel?s web page. This processor has 4 cores in it with 8 numbers of threads so multi-tasking is not an issue here, and if you combine that with the 16GB of RAM then poor performance when you are simultaneously switching from one app to another is definitely not a problem anymore.
