    Great case for Asus G73 gaming laptop, or probably any oversized laptop, January 13, 2012

    I’ve been looking for a case for my Asus G73J gaming laptop ever since I bought it over a year ago. It’s a 17.3″ display so you wouldn’t think it’d be that hard, but if you have one of these monsters, you know that the fan bay on the back is the issue. The largest laptop compartment I’d been able to find was less than 12″, where my laptop is almost 12.5″ deep.

    If you look at the pictures I’ve uploaded you’ll see that the rig fits nicely in the case, with room for my gaming mouse and my headset — it isn’t a folding headset either, so it was with some trepidation that I slid it in there and tried to zip the pocket closed. But as far as I can tell, they don’t get a bit squished.

    There’s not a lot of padding to the case, so, you know, don’t go dropping it or tossing it into the checked baggage, but the case is also very lightweight, which is great when your laptop already weighs around eight pounds all by itself. The shoulder strap pad is nicely padded, though, so I figure it’ll be about as comfortable as can be expected. It will also adjust to a long enough length that you could wear it cross-body if you wanted to. It feels awkward that way to me, mostly due to the width of the laptop, but a person could, I think, if they wanted to.

    In short, I love this case. Partly I love it because it’s the first case I’ve found that I could zip closed with my laptop in it, but even apart from that, it’s a pretty good case for the money. Not super fancy, but big enough for this monster rig, and that’s what matters.

    ASUS ROG G751/750 series will fit, but protection is horrible., May 21, 2015

    I purchased this laptop case for my new ASUS G751JT. I did some research online to find good ways of carrying this large heavy laptop and all the recommendations went to a backpack style bag (see ASUS ROG Gaming Laptop Bag, or Everki Titan). I have always carried my laptops in a laptop style carrying case with a handle and shoulder strap. Of the few laptop style cases that would fit, this seemed to be the style I was looking for.

    Cons:
    Right out of the box, I had my doubts about the case. For one, it was very very light (like half the weight of previous cases for smaller lighter laptops, like Dell products). When your carrying something small and relatively inexpensive, light can be helpful as the extra padding is not needed. Light for heavy, gaming style laptops which weight in upwards of 8lbs is not what is needed. To continue I will compare this case to my old Dell laptop bag which carried my ASUS G50vt.

    This Case Logic case has about a quarter inch of padding around the edges of the computer, with the edging strip being sewn into the case. The Dell had about an inch and a half of denser padding with a zipper around the bottom allowing you to remove the padding and custom cut it to your computer dimensions. The Case Logic case does have a hook and loop strap allowing you to keep you computer on one side of the case if the computer doesn’t fit perfectly. This means that unless your computer does fit perfectly, your computer will always make the case off balance in one direction. Continuing in the primary duty of a case (protection) the case is about as stiff as a wet noodle. Without any resistance, you can contort the case along its side twisting it back and forth (a big confidence booster). Also, with the computer inside and the power cord and block zipped in the smaller pocket, the sides collapse onto where the computer compartment is. I wont comment on the shoulder strap as I haven’t used it.

    Pros:
    The material quality is decent. The zippers seem good and don’t bind at all. The material also seems pretty tough (not structurally, but against abrasions). The size of the compartment is massive. The three pockets would easily fit almost any size laptop, cord, and tablet with plenty of other amenities.

    Conclusion:
    Yes this will fit an ASUS ROG G751/750 series, I highly recommend against it for the protection of your laptop investment.
