Hi everybody, i bought a g750 from bestbuy and become a huge fan of rog. nice to meet you guys. i have a question on my mind if my laptop is refurbished or not, because in some forums people are talking about the `N` at the end of serial number of the laptop means refurbished. i have an `n` at the end of the serial number. also i ordered a 250 gig samsung 840 ssd, there is a guide how to install it in the forum, so probably i won't have problems with that.

for the memory i am not sure what to install. what i earlier saw on the forum, i need 1.35v rams but when i opened the notebook, on the ram slot it says 1.5v. should i buy 2*8 1.35v rams, would it work with the ones inside of the laptop. thanks for listening :p

for the Ram user 1.35v this is important for haswell

i order this ones and they are greate. http://www.crucial.com/store/partspecs.aspx?imodule=CT2KIT102464BF160B

and for install the ssd, the easy way is to use the asus backtrack program to backup your system to a 16gb usb, and then swap the hard drives, when its installing be shure to only connect the ssd.

N doesn't mean refurb, it probably is part of where/when the notebook was assembled, and with a few bad parts, people might assume that letter is meaning a refurb.

I finished migratiton and started windows from ssd while hdd was in. And i tried to delete recovery on hdd which i was going to use as a storage device. After i deleted i tried to format it and now everything is gone. I cannot start with the original hdd and when i try to start with ssd after sign in a black screen appears and stays that way. I got the recovery on usb but not able to reach anything with any of my hdds. Not looking good :(
