Hi,

Is there a version of G751JT (geforece 970m) with black vents instead of red? I would really prefer that since I think it would look like more seriously.

I also found picture where vents are closed and hidden but I have no idea how that is possible?

Any idea???

I think there is no version of G751 with black vents.
Probably it's possible to dissassemble them, paint black and re-assemble.. but obviously this will void the warranty.

Where is this picture with closed vents? Post it :)

Hi hmscott

According to Asus site, that's the G751JM, the one with GTX 860m.
G751JY and G751JT with GTX 980m/970m have the bigger red vents.

Imho, many reseller report wrong/casual images of G751, non the exact images of the specific model they sale.
I think it's better to ask to the reseller if there're some doubts about images/specifications. :)

andreacos92, I agree, I only wanted to point out where pit_ns might have seen it :)

And, I am not a fan of the red accents, but then again, it really isn't that bad - it adds a touch of style without going overboard. As compared to the old black on black it has color, but it's tasteful and well done.

This is my favorite over the top design from Asus :)

I think it would be cool if there was a G75x that had motorized vents that deployed with blowers glowing red too :)

I think that pit_ns saw this

and thought that it's a picture of the back of the laptop, with the lid open.
Instead, it should be a picture of the TOP of the laptop, with the lid closed :)

andreacos92 - you are right, that is what I saw ;D.


Would you guys go with geforce 970m or you think 860m is enough?

pit_ns, I would add, buy what you can afford + what you can save for modulo how much patience you have to wait.

$500 more for the JY at the most, how long does it take to save up => maybe as long as it takes Asus to fix the Audio/USB issues and put them in production ;)

My policy is to buy now if you need it, and continue to trade up in the line as they are available => G750JW => G750JX => G750JH => G?????

You need to trade up quickly though to keep value.

Let us know what you end up getting :)

eheh, first time I saw that picture, I thought the same thing :D

It all depends on your budget, as hmscott said, if you need it now buy the one you can afford.
If you can wait, I (personally) would go with the G751 with 970m.. it seems a very good card and it has not Optimus, but likely it has the red vents :)

Nvidia 970m sometimes is even 2x stronger than 860m! + no optimus = NO BRAINER!:cool: I am gonna savin up few months and buy g751jt, very good bang for the buck.

I decided not to buy the ROG G751 becasue of the issues that you guys have. I will wait and see how Asus deals with those. I really wanted this one becasue of IPS screen which I just think is beautiful :)

Question, do you hear the laptop when is idle?

I want it to be silent when I am browsing or not playing.
