I buy this laptop two months ago. It perform like a charm but i am kinda dissapointed with lcd which is glare one @1600x900.
It has very narrow wiev angle and black colour is kinda washed out.
I stumbled on this while surfing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVurjmgur4Y
and wonder if i can install on G74SX-TY249D matte full hd lcd seen in BBK7 G74SX laptop.
I mean what is hardware diff between these two models except lcd? Do they have same mobo?
I know about warranty so dont mention that. I am just discussing possibillities here!

Any ROGer with info about that?

wow, it is possible for yoru video, if you want know what is spec difference between two modles,i think goole will be easying search, but i suggest you do not it by yourself, i don't know where can you get other LCD module for replacement, and when you success replacement is it able to use or not, nobody knows.

Thanx Mike!
Those two models have same graphic adapter so i recon ribon is the same in both models. I dont like glare lcd`s and would be nice to install matte full HD screen on this baby. I couldnt wait and/or search for full HD G74SX coz they were unavaliable in Croatia two months ago so i took this one and i would be lieing if say its not good machine :) but anyway it would be nice to have matte one.
So on Asus site under G74SX specs, i read this:

Display 17.3" 16:9 HD+ (1600x900)/Full HD (1920x1080)/Full HD 3D(1920x1080 120Hz) LED Backlight

so i presume that it wouldnt be problem for upgrade if it is possible through Asus directly?

These are just thoughts coz i plan to keep this one for few years. I only use laptop when i am on cargo ship for half part of year. I have desktop solution at home.

Any ideas?
