Hi to all :)

I have my G751JY, an it is time to sell it and buy a new one. I have 2100 USD, and I faind:

1. ASUS ROG GL702VI-WB74 ( i7 7th Gen 7700HQ, GTX 1080, 16GB RAM, 256GB PCIe SSD 1TB HDD...);
2. MSI GT73VR 7RF TITAN PRO ( i7 7th Gen 7700HQ, GTX 1080, 16GB RAM, 256GB PCIe SSD 1TB HDD...);
3. ASUS ROG G701VI-XS72K (i7 7th Gen 7820HK, GTX 1080, 32GB RAM, just 512GB SSD...)

The 1st ad 2nd are the same specification, just the question is who do job better and what is better?

Or is the best to wait MSI GS Series GS65 Stealth (i7 8750H, GTX 1070, 16GB RAM, 256 GB NVMe SSD ...) - did you think that is better to chose better CPU - 8750H or better GPU -1080 GPU?

And please if you have something better please write here. :)

Thx you all

Wll what stands out to me is the fact that the G701 is a full-blown gaming notebook as was your G751. The GL is smaller thinner with less cooling capacity. So far we haven't seen many issues here with the G701, which is not the case with the GL models
32 GB Ram is a pretty much standard requirement these days with all that we are doing with our notebook.
512 GB m.2 NVME SSD is the perfect size for OS and programs. Just ensure that you are getting an actual 512 GB SSD and not 2 x 256!!! Verify this 100%.
So you can drop in a 2nd m.2 1TB or 2TB SSD in the 2nd slot for onboard storage. Not sure but I think the 701 still has a 2.5: SATA slot you can drop in a spinner hard drive 1tb for less than a $100 or 1TB SATA SSD for less than $300
The G701 has next-gen CPU over the other GL. I don't know about screen what differences there might be there
Basically, the GL is scaled down version of the G notebook to sell cheaper.
I won't speak to the MSI as I don't have one or any experience with that brand.
I'll point out again if you look through these forums we are not seeing many issues with the G701, that could change as more people buy them I don't know, I can only compare to the release of the G751 and all the threads we had with them as well as he G752VS especial the overclocked ones. MHO hope this help s you see things more clearly.

Clint's advice is great. The only thing I might mention would be that I don't think 512GB is the perfect size for OS and programs if the programs include your games. I am constantly fighting this. I don't play a lot of games all the time but I do play a lot of variety of games, and the developers have learned that storage is cheap. Games will fill up your drive quickly. And for games you will want to run off SSD, preferably M.2, and not HDD. So I would recommend nothing less than a 1TB M.2 SSD for you, since you are looking specifically for a gamin laptop. Just my take on it.
