I have been doing some research on net and I cant seem to find a UK reseller for the new Asus G75 laptops. You can order then through Amazon,Ebay etc but most come from US suppliers which I dont want to go through. I write this note to see if anyone in the UK has actually bought one of these G75 series laptops from a UK retailer, if so please provide details. The UK retailers I have phoned dont know when it will be released in UK saying could be as late as mid June 2012.

Thanks

Amazon seem to be supplying it themselves now but dispatch time in 2-3 weeks.

I'm looking for one of these in the uk as well so let me know if you find anything.

As amazon uk is still showing as 3-5 weeks, you can order now from amazon.de and they convert the price for you and t seems to be shipped by Amazon EU Sarl (indigo starfish) who supply amazon uk any way. I think this is what I'm going to do. Use chrome and it will automatically translate the German really well.

Anyone had any luck finding these in the UK yet? Particularly the one with the 660m graphics card.
Most retailers are still selling the G74, it like im stuck in a time warp

It's dire in the UK for 75s and 55s, you can just about get them with US international keyboards. Only mainstream supplier I've seen with any listing is scan (http://www.scan.co.uk/products/173-asus-g75vw-91121z-i7-3610qm-230ghx-2tb-%282x1tb%29-8gb-%282x4gb%29-ddr-gtx-670m-win-7-ultimate), but it's been there for best part of 2 months now as a pre-order only with no ETA, so it looks like they haven't actually ordered any yet. Real bummer.

Yeah i considered an imported US one. Amazon.de have them too, but apart from the non UK keyboard (and having to reinstall an english version of Windows in the case of the Amazon Germany one) it's just extra complications when things go wrong.

If its just that Asus aren't interested in the UK market, or if we're so far down their distribution list that the G76 will be out before we start seeing 75's over here then I'm not going to force them to take my money and go for my 2nd choice instead. Probably MSI. At least it says right there in their name that they deal Internationally

Simply asus keep getting them in but then sell out. http://www.simplyasus.com/ASUS_G75VW-91121Z_1199938.html
Asus laptop have them in as well http://www.asuslaptop.co.uk/proddetail.php?prod=G75VW-91121Z
And the asus uk website is finally listing the g75 as a product. (I emailed them a few months ago and they denied that it existed)
I gave up waiting and bought a clevo instead. Bit impatient :P
