Any backpack recommendation for this beast? :cool: The free Asus backpack is just a bit too small around the top corners, I will need to manually fold both of the corner before zipping it up or else the zip will grind or even get stuck by the corners of the laptop...:mad: And the packing volume inside is a bit small after putting in the power adapter so would like to get some bigger backpack to replace this...

Hello xyz_cityhunter!
Just my 2 cents: If you can afford it and is available, I would wholeheartedly recommend ASUS' own "Nomad" (http://www.asus.com/Computer_Bags/ASUS_ROG_NOMAD_BACKPACK/) backpack! I ordered mine (for my G751JT) from Germany and it even surpassed my expectations. It's a great, feature-packed backpack, resistant, well manufactured and good-looking too! This (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iHf7MAZwXw)video review actually "sold" it to me, and I believe it will convince you, too! ;-)

PS> You mentioned a "free Asus backpack", which one is it? Was it part of an official ASUS bundle offer where you live or was just added as a freebie bonus by the particular vendor you bought the G751 from? Thanks!

Nice... but too bad that Asus is not carrying that in my country... :(
As for the freebies that I get, it is bundled along with the G751JT, it's a gaming mouse, headphone and backpack...

I completely agree! I purchased the Nomad and it's built very well PLUS it's easy on my back.

Can't you just place an order to a foreign e-shop? For example, I live in Greece but I ordered both my G751JT and the "Nomad" from Germany, as stated (different vendors, btw). So, supposedly you might try the same with a suitable country in your part of the world, where the backpack is available...

Some nice bundle, I'd say! :)
Only the mouse was bundled in my case... (and I was pleasantly surprised)
However, I'd say it strikes me as odd for ASUS to bundle a backpack barely suitable for the task of carrying their flagship gaming laptops... :-\

Regardless, good luck getting the Nomad from abroad, if possible in your case! It's really worth it 100%!

I own the ROG Shuttle Backpack, and it fits perfectly. The reason I didn't go to for the Nano was the way it looks.

Hm, guess will have to hunt locally for Asus backpack which is able to fit the G751... I can't really get it from online as I'm in South East Asia and the shipping fee will cost me 50% of that that bag itself which is way over-budget for me...:(
How much does it cost in your country? I think i found one which cost around 150USD...
Sad that my old Targus bag can't fit this in, been using that bag for about 7 years and still minimum wear and tear on that baby...:eek:
