I'm currently struggling in making choice.
I was looking into Alienware 17 R3 vs G752. Alienware 17 seems like a cheaper one with capability of adding external GPU.
The new G752 really catches my eyes. It will have better building quality and cooling system for sure so it is still in my list.
Like my question, Will we be able to use eGPU through the thunderbolt 3.0?
I really want ROG to make a eGPU dock like the aw graphic amplifier.

Don't know why you think ASUS would give you better build quality than an Alienware...but if there is going to be any eGPU stuff it's probably not gonna come from ASUS. It would have to be an universal solution that would work on any TB3 laptop.

So you would be more interested in the G700 than the G752?, Otherwise "edweird" would be correct it will be an aftermarket solution.

All Thunderbolt 3 capable laptop should have eGPU capability by end of 2015 or early 2016.
Intel was showcasing eGPU through thunderbolt, and it has been vocally showing it as TB3 showcase.

Most likely MSI TB3 eGPU should be coming soon.
