someone is trying to sell a g75vw.. i asked him what the cpu was and he replied.. i7-5600U.. i thought they stopped making g75vw a while ago so there was no way it would have an i7-5600u in it.. am i wrong?

Well, the G75VW model is old enough that it still used removable or replacable cpus (with some work/difficulty) unlike the current ASUS notebook models with cpus soldered to the motherboard, so theoretically it's possible that somebody else (if not ASUS) replaced/upgraded the cpu.

The question I might have if it didn't come from ASUS with that cpu and a third party upgraded the cpu is how well the system runs with it, but I haven't checked if the thermal profile of that cpu is similar to the other cpus approved by ASUS.

Perhaps this has brought up more questions than answers, but hope it makes a little more sense now.
