There are different resources talking about the G 750 series:

I went to the Asus website and I chose the middle east region as I live in that region and i saw only one model of the g750 series follow the link below it is the one with the GTX770m

http://ae.asus.com/en/Notebooks/Gaming_Powerhouse/G750JX/#specifications


It is clear that there will be a GTX80m model which is confirmed by ASUS themselves but from what I saw on youtube that there will be slight changes in the chassis, the GTX780m model will be thinker than the lower specs models which makes sense as the card requires it.

BUT what confuses me is that not only the chassis will be different from what I saw is that the material used around the keyboard will be also different in the below link you will see a video which is taken from the ASUS 2013 press conference where they launch the new series of notebooks and other products they have. I see brushed aluminum which is different that all the pictures i have seen on the web and in this FORUM which the material used is the same matte finish similar to the outer casing:

Now the link provided by MarshallR@ASUS


http://rog.asus.com/239892013/g-seri...s-g750-laptop/

The pics are showing different models even one without exhaust vents , one slim and another thinker.

This is confusing , also be aware that the new model is using DDR3L modules which are faster and using less voltage in the specs specified in the link u see only DDR3 modules.






In this link : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yy4PYJXGA0 provided by GenTechPC ( GTX765m model whch has the thin chassis)

Taken from : Thread: Asus G750VW 4th Gen Intel Haswell GTX765M unboxing video

You can see a better view of the Device Manager:

Realtek is still the hardware used to drive Audio

And for the WLAN we got Broadcom which we can all agree that it is better than the ATHEROS one.

DON'T FORGET TO KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE MATERIAL SURROUNDING THE KEYBOARD :) , IN THE YOUTUBE LINK IT IS THE MATTE FINISH.

Still no Optimus configuration that means no intel graphics switching.


Hope this helps and clarifies couple of points but in the same time i guess we all deserve even further clarification.

ASUS marketing please elaborate!!!

All of the models have dual vents that picture Marshall link was a top look at the laptop. ASUS confirmed through pictures on FB that the G750JH model is bigger using bigger vents, fans and heatsinks. I just ordered the G750JW-DB71 which is the lowest spec of the 3 main models which I can confirm it has vents.

I'm surprised you didn't aim for the gtx77m model but i guess a bit of an OC will solve that.

I'm sure all the models will have the vents but i'm just wondering why they have posted a pic like this one.

I couldnt have gone with the G750JX because of lack of money available and I just need something game on while on the move, As for why that picture is like that I have no idea but it sure did confuse many people on the forums and other places.

Of course there is vents! You are looking at the TOP of the laptop on that right peak.... Asus knows how to confuse ppl.

But obviously, they don't have the TOP graphic designers for their advertising pictures. ;)


PS: What a pity that "disk drives" is not opened on the picture. : )

Yeah man the reviewer didn't have that open, but i guess that model had HDD's not an SSD as it is the low end model with the GTX765m.

Yes, but, what exactly chip from broadcom uses. Mainly interested in that to know if the chip can be used in a hackintosh as an official airport card. BCMxxx what?
