Hi!

I am getting my new G751JT this weekend and im really pumped about it :)
I was wondering if there were alot of bloatware or other softwares preinstalled that slowed down the machine?
Often when i have bought laptops ive had to format as soon as i got em, is this the case with this fellow also?
I really like it when its only the important stuff installed... i have OCD :)

Thanks in advance

/Sam

Hello Sam,

A little bit of bloatware, yes, but it can all be uninstalled from control panel's add/remove programs. Congrats on your new pc. I have the 751JY and I'm really impressed by it. You'll love the screen and how well your pc can handle games.

Would you recommend wiping and reinstalling windows?

I asked the same question, and everybody said that it is easier to keep everything how it is. You can of course remove all the useless programs, but there is no real need to reinstall Windows.

Alright thanks. I wouldn't mind going through the hassle of re-installing drivers if that's all it entailed.

Too much hassle to reinstall everything if you ask me... Spending a good few hours contra just deleting the few unnecessary apps via control panel. Not too much bloatware is my verdict, but still a little bit...

I've got a G751JY. It runs flawlessy, and it isn't really heavy on the bloatware area. They're easy to remove. The only program i removed by now was the Game First, because it was causing stuttering on a couple games.
