Heard a rumor it was released at bestbuy today?
Only 3d Version has better CPU? Normal version has Intel Quad Core i7-3610QM (2.30GHz) and 3D version 3720(2,60GHz). Is an option to get version without 3D with i7-3720(2,60GHz)?
Yes, but it's gonna cost you a lot more.... Check this site
17.3" FULL HD
Core I7 2670QM
90GB OCZ SSD (SATA3)
750GB 2nd HDD
Newegg has the only model I have seen with the 3720QM (ignoring all the popular customizing resellers). It's a bit pricey but it has all the bells and whistles, except for 3D.
I have a G74SX and it's silent. Little to no noise, even at max capacity.

Asus G74SX-DH72 
- 16GB RAM
- nVidia GeForce GTX 560M 3GB VRAM [304.48 BETA]
- Intel Core i7-2670QM 2.20GHz
- Windows 7 Home Premium
- Intel 520 SSD - 180GB
- 700GB 7200rpm HDD (x2 paritions, 350GB each)
I'm somewhat disappointed with this release. 3610QM received 7.4 WEI score when my G74SX's 2670QM gets 7.5. I know WEI isn't a big deal, but why would this happen? Also, 560M outperforms 660M easily, mainly because of 660M's extremely low memory bus. The only thing I like about this new release is its shape, which also may cause some problems related to cooling.

Has anybody on the forum already bought it? and can share with us some benchmarks, opinion?
ehh... I think this a shame that on Official ROG forum, members didnt put some opinion on new G75... I bet a couple of persons have already bought it... on other forums I can see threads with 1XXX post about that...
I actually purchased the G75 Best Buy Model. I am still in the process of debating whether I will keep it though. I am not sure if I really want to go with the weight and size of the laptop, regardless of how good it is on heating. However, I can't really find anything lighter at this very moment that has an ivy bridge and at least a decent GPU (around or right below the GTX 660M). If I keep it, I will be adding a SSD and Ram.
As for the G75, it seems great so far. I haven't had a chance (nor do I know the best way yet) to overclock the GPU. I do have an issue with the sound. The system is supposed to be a 2.1 system, however only a little bit of sound comes from the main speakers and all sound is coming from the sub. This means at a higher level, the sound is absolutely horrible. When going into the Windows Settings you can see that the whole thing is treated as a 5.1 system which is why the 2.1 does not seem to work correctly (there is no 2.1 setting).
