Getting ready to purchase a ROG g752. Is the battery easily swappable so I could use a second to double my time unplugged? Or is it tightly screwed in place and a nightmare to get in and out?

You could download the manual and find that answer Asus Support Downloads (http://support.asus.com/download/options.aspx?SLanguage=en&type=1) While your there go ahead and download all the latest drivers.

Thanks for the suggestion. The PDF does not mention changing the battery at all. G751 models do not allow battery replacement but many requested this be changed. There is no mention of if the g752 is the same or not. So my question is directed at any G752 owners that can comment.

G752 has a built-in battery. No way to replace until you open it. BUt with battery management of Windows 10 (that unplug automatically battery when fully charge) there might be no problem with life shorten.

Unfortunately no. The batteries are not user replaceable. Im sure in the future there will be a how to on people who dont mind pulling one apart, but the bottom is one solid constructed piece with only the fan shroud which can be removed for cleaning, and the access panel to the drives/mem/ect.

My guess why they omitted it may be weight and size. This laptop is already pushing weight and size more over the previous gen. These are really meant to be desktop replacements and not stray too far away from an outlet.
