View Full Version : G75vw model help please

11-23-2012, 02:07 AM
So I'm looking into buying the Asus G75vw-RH71... However, there are a few odd things about said model

1. First and foremost, it's not listed in the forums on the model listing
2. Second, it has an intel i7 3630QM when according to the Asus site, G75VW is only manufactured with either a 3610QM or a 3720QM... This isn't a mistype from the store because I've checked amazon, cnet and staples and they all have said model with the 3630QM

3. There are absolutely NO reviews on it, I've scoured the Internet and have found nothing

Please, explain to me what the deal is with the RH71

Amazon link to it: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009AEWA96?ie=UTF8&force-full-site=1&ref_=aw_bottom_links

@dwdw52, it's the same g75 with a slight hardware refresh and with win8. the specifications at the official site serve as reference only. for old models, most of us got 3610qm (actually it's like none of us having 3720qm).

there are many hardware (and maybe software) configurations for a g75 at the factory; each configuration has a code for it (such as RH71); your retailer then pick what configurations that they wanna sell and place their orders.

edit: you might wanna wait a bit because g75vx is around the corner; and it should have a better GPU (670MX), too.

Alright, thank you that helps ALOT... But another question since you suggest I wait for the G75VX... Will the VX be AROUND the same price as the VW...because my budget can't go much higher than the laptop I linked...

@chrsplmr, :D

@dwdw52, i'm not sure of the price; but my best guess is that it should be around that range. you can follow this G75VX thread (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?23782-Coming-Soon-G75VX) for more. i found this (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?23782-Coming-Soon-G75VX&p=187876&viewfull=1#post187876) in one of the latest replies; and it should be 2 weeks away for the first batch (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?23782-Coming-Soon-G75VX&p=188152&viewfull=1#post188152).
