View Full Version : G551JM-DH71-CA vs G771JM-DH71-CA

I recently purchased the G551JM-DH71-CA. However, due to screen issues, it was dead on arrival and I had to sent it in to Asus.

Asus has offered to replace the defective model with the G771JM-DH71-CA.

My understanding is that these models are identical, except for the following:

Screen size (15.6" vs 17.3")
Memory (8GB vs 12GB)
Weight and Dimensions (obviously considering the larger screen size)

Are these models different in any other way? Is the G771JM in any way worse than the G551JM?

Thanks for your help!

I also understand that the G551JM and G771JM have cooling issues. Does the size of the G771JM make it any worse in this regard?
