Hey it's easy, you said G75 are hard to get where you are!! Just sell it to someone and then wait for the G750 for yourself, you might even make a couple of bucks for bringing it in to your country?

G75VX still a good machine. Regarding 670MX vs 765M not much diff but 770M not sure haha! For Ivy vs Haswell well for desktop replacement notebook not big diff because G750 still no optimus(afaik) so you don't get battery life..

The G75VX is a really strong machine :)

Obviously it's always fun to have the NEWEST product out there, but in your case I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I bought my G75VX a few months ago, even tho I knew about the release - However, if you're going to worry about "when is the next model out" all the time, then you will always feel sad about your current model.

I bought this so that I could play BF3 without having to worry about setting etc. and so far I'm very pleased with it :)

Like stated above - You can try and resell it to someone else and then use the money to get the G750.

this is a good idea :D

to be frank, g75vx is still a good laptop at this point of time. it's not a mistake to own one.

It is marginally faster... the g750s to get would be the ones with the 770m video card and up.. otherwise nothing a mild overclock can't fix. The benchmarks are aroun 8% faster and with an overclock you can get 20%. The 780 is another ball game....

Still.... i had the opportunity to return my vx till yesterday and I kept it... Machine is plenty fast and I am sure it will handle bf4 just fine.

You can't compare the G55 with 17.3' G750 or G75VX.

The G55 is a far older model then G75VX and it's a 15.6' - And there is no sign of ASUS releasing a similar model to the G55 with 770M or 780M.

if they come up with models using 765m then theres no point upgrading. the marginally improvement is not worth, and if i am right, will only come with 2gb of ram instead of 670mx's having 3gb. haswell processors don't give any extra edge over ivy in gaming performance either and i would not expect ASUS to throw in a high end haswell. so all in all, just keep the g75

first of all 670mx is a better GPU then 760m (though 670mx ugh has bit lower clock speeds and that can be fixed with a bit of overclocking ). Second I really like some features of the G75vx then G750 more (like the grey aluminum oer the top and soft touch wrist rest). The only thing I do like more on the G750 is that it has a headphone amp built in, but these you can buy for like 20-30 bucks over ebay. So no worries it's a great machine. Enjoy it and welcome to the ROG community.

LMAO Mehdi. You only lost if you paid the full price for the G75vx. I bought a G75vx a week ago on purpose because all the vendors had put them on sale to get rid of the excess inventory stock. I paid around $1300, which is a steal for the performance of this laptop.

Now for the 750. It's honestly not worth it unless you would get the one with the GTX 780M, and that one costs over $2000. Otherwise the improvement in games from Ivy Bridge to Haswell is non-existent. Even worse the Haswell cpus run hotter than the Ivy Bridge. And that 765M is worse than the 670MX.

Yup. So vx is better buy than the new G750, though specs of the gtx780m are awesome. But I've read on the forum that ASUS had to redesign the cooling due to its massive overheating.
