Yesterday i both G7500JX and move all my disks (3) from N76VZ (Best Ever notebook i have owned!!!, but GT650 is definitely not enough;)), installed new drivers and everything went well. Notebook is very fast especially graphics, boot is blazing with SSD.
What i don't like:
-Exhaust vents on the back blows hot air on my knees (N76 blows sideways!)
-Sound is poorer than N76 (subjectively;))
-WiFi Atheros is a lot worse than intel WiFi of N76 (poorer reception !)

And major problem! After installing everything i have played a game just to enjoy my new rig, but after 30 minutes of joy - whole screen went crazy and PC hangs. I restarted it but it can't boot windows (screen goes colorful spots) and now even ROG logo is scrambled, so i realize my nvidia GTX770M was damaged :( for 30 minutes of gaming , now i will send it to service - what a luck :(

And now questions:
-configuration is wit only one 8GB RAM modul? In order to achieve dual channel where do i have to put another 8GB (in which slot) and is there are any special requirements for memory module to buy?
-how can i change WiFi wit 802.3 ac one? As i have linksys EA6500.

So step by step:
- Laptop was designed with gaming on a desk in mind. Vents on the sides heat your hands, vents in the back push heat away from you
- Check Maxx audio software - you can improve the sound a lot
- yeah, WiFi could be better
- You got unlucky - faulty unit. Death after 30min is not an average experience. My CPU/GPU reach 70 deg C max when playing Grid 2.
- There is a sticky on RAM modules - 1.3V thing. Install HWInfo or sth like that to check your RAM configuration
- can't understand what you mean with the last one..

-For Gaming on desk, there DeskTop's ;) and blowing on the left not bothering majority of people
-Checked but speakers are not as good as Bang&Olufsen on N76 (my subjective observation)
-True
-How lucky i am ;)
-Thanks, beside 1.3v i've try, where to put it in order to have dual channel config? (there 2 available in disk compartment, but might be this is gonna be tryout)
-WiFi as we agree is not very good and this is mini PCIe card, on JW models there is 802.3 ac such card (i assume a lot better than atheros), so i am planing to exchange it if possible! So if someone knows where is the card and how to disassemble/assemble, that was my question. But i have decided to ask service engineers to do this for me - anyhow laptop will be disassembled for repairs if they do not exchange the whole thing.

Thanks for Your answers.
