I've been checking out a lot of sites about pricing of the new G752's coming out this month and I gotta tell ya if what I'm seeing is true I'll be looking into MSI

I don't mind paying list price for a new laptop release but some of the prices are really high. I trust Asus will not take advantage of us loyal followers and "maybe purchasers" of their new product.

We want the latest and greatest but we have limits to what we expect to shell out for a new laptop with a new skin with basically the same specs as the older machines.

I'll keep my fingers crossed and keep my wallet in my pocket for now...we will see

ASUS...DON'T SHOOT YOURSELF IN THE FOOT WITH THIS....PLEASE

I also checked out the prices for England..4k USD for the high end g752

no mention of the G700,,,but the more I look at that set up...the more I think it has to be a marketing gimmick...someone somewhere in a conference room said "Hey lets see if we can build a liquid cooler for this thing" and they came up with that.
I don't take that setup seriously because all it does is cool. It's more like can we really build this if we wanted to?...it doesn't add to the graphics attributes like the alienware setup does with an additional graphics card and the 20% or so boost isn't worth the cost of it

I really hope its not going to be that high because I really do love these laptops and I was planning on using one edition for a year and then selling it and upgrading to a newer one. But with prices like that, it's going to be a bit tough. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I heard the newer versions were suppose to have a liquid cooling system which makes it more unique then its predecessors. I guess that's where the boost in price comes from. I did, however, wanted to build a gaming pc as its cheaper and all but I barely have any room and I like portability so I'm going to have my fingers crossed that it ATLEAST stays around the 2k price range.

Never mind. I took a closer look at the specs and it shows that they come with a 8gb graphics card which is awesome and a 64 gb ram, which is really not necessary. But yh the price still seems a bit high.

Is it it just me, or are the specs really lack luster? I mean I could get an MSI Titan for $3000 Canadian, which would has way higher specs, it has a dual gtx 980 8gb in sli with go sync. I'm not really seeing the appeal here, I been waiting for the 752 and it's looking more and more for me to get the Titan.

I'd be really tempted to get that, but then again it doesn't have the same cooling effect as the Asus rog ;/. I've heard that's one of the main issues with MSI laptops is that they over heat quick. But yh I think they're doing this just for market purposes instead of actually wanting to deliver what we customers want. With that price, you might as well build a high powered gaming PC.

Why would I buy a laptop for that price with a free backpack, when I could get an MSI Titan with way more power and it comes with a backpack as well as a palm rest.
It's an 18.4 inch screen, mechanical keyboard and SLI graphics.

ASUS priced themselves out of the competition for me on this one. I wanted the ROG with 4k display, and there isn't one.

From the Asus event in San Francisco today, it looks like the GX700 (the one with the water cooling dock + desktop GTX 980) will have a 4K display.

Yeah...it's not as bad as I thought. I don't think
ASUS ROG G752VY-RH71 Intel i7 2.6GHz 16GB Memory 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD GTX980M 4GB ..for 2,000.00 USD.
I can deal with that. Looks like Asus is doing the right thing. It's the retailers that are taking advantage but that should calm itself down after a while.

Looks like I'm going to have a gaming holiday season on a new machine...can't wait!

I'm not really shocked at the prices so far. I expected quite a jump as you went up as a lot of retailers are still selling the G751 W/ the 980m for well over $2500us. I don't have that much to spend on a new machine so what I've been watching for is the price on the VT models with the 970 and it looks like they are launching a model with the 970m for $1600us according to PC world. that's likely what i'm going to jump on.

The prices of the older machines (will be older machines) have to come down no? But I don't see it either. I'm wondering what kind of discounts will happen when the newer machines hit the market

Sereus
10-10-2015, 04:04 PM
hard to say. but a launch price that is below the standard selling price of the current JT with the 970 is more than enough to get my attention. I have a feeling we won't see big drops in the price of the standing stock G751s till mid holiday season.

I looked at "dh78k" wiping tears of bitterness)))

Anton362
10-11-2015, 06:34 PM
The dh78k is horribly overpriced. I guess Asus thinks that's worth the extra RAM, 8 GB 980m, and overclocking... imo, it's not. The cheapest VY has decent value though, since you can always buy more RAM and upgrade it yourself.

10-11-2015, 07:17 PM
if you face the truth,then is unnecessary in 64GB... advantage in the processor 6820HK,but its price is $ 378,the same as in 6700hq...price for memory +32gb, +384gb ssd and +4gb gddr5 - 900$?

I'm quite shocked at this lineup, usually the ASUS ROG's are amazing, I have bought 3 ASUS laptops so far. Now I need to upgrade again, and it looks like I'm going for an MSI Titan, I know it's huge and heavy, but damn that's a machine. Only downside is the screen.

Gtx980 version is over priced still MSI Is remarkable compared to g752 in price. 4k display is nice for desktop use but very terrible for those gpus in gaming and those 2 gpus are not even new we already have them.

I would wait for pascal.
Even a single gtx980 cant handle 4k one would need to down scale to 1080p to get 60 fps and get worse image quality.

Theoritacally speaking those are nice new laptops but with their own issues. MSI gtx980 Beats them all thought..

128gb SSD is way too small for a laptop.

Yep it looks like its going to be the G752VY DH-72, but I going with Xtopic and getting the IC Diamond pasting and 256GB NME SSD 16 GB Ram. I don't game so I don't think I'll miss the 4Gb less Video ram or the lesser CPU I don't think I'll miss them for my Desktop replacement.

I can't but will wait till we start getting some user in here, so we can know if they fixed the USB 3.0, sound and drive bay set ups.

Can I have a picture of your gold toilet?

G752VY-DH72: i7-6700HQ, GTX980M 4GB, 16GB RAM (downgraded from 32GB), 256GB SSD (upgraded from 128GB) + 1TB HDD, $2599 - $70 + $179 (Samsung XP941 -> 10Gb/s) or $210 (Samsung SM951) = $2708 or $2739 (excluded thermal compound: $35)

G752VY-RH71: i7-6700HQ, GTX980M 4GB, 16GB RAM, 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD, $1,999.00
Which means $709 or $740 to buy a 256GB SSD and cry for the lack of IC Diamond thermal compound.

And just to understand why ASUS will not sell a lot of G752VY:
MSI GT72S Dominator Pro G Dragon-004 (not a good notebook for OC, but cheap as hell): i7-6820HK, GTX980 Desktop GPU 8GB, 16GB RAM (downgraded from 32GB), 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD, $3,029.99 (Xotic PC)

Ya, noticed this too and honestly wish I could have the same specs but at least a 256 GB SSD or 512 would be preferable. I don't need more than 16GB ram or a blu ray drive.

I wouldn't go for IC Diamond in a laptop, personally. A phase-change metallic alloy (like Indigo XTreme or even a cheap lump of Indium-bearing solder) would offer a much more robust thermal interface in a mobile unit which sees a lot of bumping around and not a lot of frequent internal servicing. I haven't seen any takeaparts for G752 models yet, but I expect Asus uses it's usual pink TIM goop and cheapish groove-wicked heatpipes as the primary cooling mechanism - upgrading to (more costly) sintered copper heatpipes would significantly improve cooling efficiency, especially if the laptop isn't always perfectly horizontal while in use.

Don't know much about those MSI uber laptops except that they apparently get really, really hot.
