Is there anything I should know about this laptop before I get it? I get it on the 18th. I heard something is wrong with the audio but updating some drivers might mess something up?

Got mine yesterday from bestbuy. The audio sounds good on mine, but does rattle the touchpad whenever it's over 50% volume which is slightly annoying. I also have a loose part rattling around in mine, taking it in to their geeksquad saturday to diag

The audio issues got fixed with a Realtek driver update and in case you are having issues check your driver version.
The latest driver with the fix is: V6.0.1.7432 http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/ASUS_ROG_G751JT/HelpDesk_Download/

And make sure to uninstall GamersFirst lll it messes with your internet connection especially if you install Avast. Others say Game Center does the same but so far I did not have issues with that. =)
Another would be Asus splendid video, some say it messes with the colors so most uninstall that too but that is what I have read so far on the forum I did not have it installed to see the problem myself.

Explore the forum a bit more if you want to feel safer with what your first steps will be, also it is recommended that one of the first things you should do is make a backup with Asus Backtracker.
