There's also more space between the keyboard and number pad, so it resembles a desktop keyboard. The harder you work, the more heat you generate. A computer is no different, and with the amount of power in the ROG G74SX-XA1, some serious cooling is needed. A unique venting design pulls air from underneath the notebook, cooling the system down, and then vents it through the rear, keeping hot air away from the user and reducing ambient noise for prolonged gaming.

Like the stealth ship, opponents will never know what hit 'em, and like an aircraft carrier, the ROG G74-XA1 has the firepower to shock and awe the competition.
