I just received the ASUS G75VW-AS71 from Amazon today and I am still unsure if this has thunderbolt or not.
The manual says it may or may not depending on the model. The port looks the same.
It there a way to be sure before I go out and buy a thunderbolt drive to test it?

Thanks
Chris

I have the laptop now and see the port however, the manual says it may or not be thunderbolt depending on the model. It may just be a mini display port.

Is there a place in windows to check? I am coming from the mac world.

Thanks,
Chris

I'm almost 100% sure it doesn't.


My sales sheet lists mini display port

Well if it has thunderbolt, you should have a program or setting somewhere that you choose to apply it as a thunderbolt or Mini display. We don't know where because none of us have the thunderbolt model.
