G701VI (http://www.ncixus.com/products/?sku=135459&vpn=G701VI%2DXB78K&manufacture=Others&promoid=1657&promoid=1657) seems to be replacement for G752vy.
Looks exactcly as G752, has cd drive and better gpu,cpu.
But is it worth the money?
Why Asus ditched old nameing scheme? The VI stand for VR probably. The VR is selling verrry poorly, why not G753 then?

If you look on the official ASUS site, the correct photos are shown. There seems to be a great deal of confusion surrounding this model.

Seems to that Asus is now putting on the market 3 levels of Gaming notebooks, Not only that but in each category there is wide price range of models. We'll have to see what they come out with this spring. Fall usually is just some small upgraded parts in the same old case. IE G752VS line. All that's new is the Video Card and some modification to the cooling system. The VL G752 series have there own sub forum as well as the VX G series. This is all new to us for awhile all 3 were in this one forum which was very confusing for us all with the VL G752 having not much to do with the G752 at all.

Well bad info for me is all g701 and g801 are missing built in cd-drives. And I don't see games,films and utility programs comming on sdcards in shops any time soon. Too bad, 'cause we could get rid of big bulky cds.

An external one is like...$30? Get with the times, CD's and DVD's are done.

I don't know it seems to me that mostly we download software now days, I can't remember how long its been since I've loaded a program from a CD. In fact I just loaded Quickbooks 2016 which was on a CD or DVD so I copied it to disk then Installed.

I havent use a phisical disk in years... but I do have high speed internet. (120mps+)
Maybe that is still a limitation to some people.

Well, tell it to movie studios and some software companies which still preffer cd disks(DVDs, BDs). Wonder how long until they dump cds for good in the history/museum bin.

I have to add that I haven't used a CD/DVD since Fallout 3. I still own a lot of old games on disk, but like it was said, I'd just get a cheap external unit. A great deal of new laptops don't have optical drives, and I don't think I've seen an ultra portable with an optical drive ever.

In the end an external CD DVD or BR which ever you think you need is inexpensive and with USB 3.0 and up there are no bandwidth issues as we have with internal SATA 1 Optical drives

Next: Get rid of touchpads on gaming laptops! >:)

I personally never use it, and you can get a wireless mouse that's small enough to use anywhere if you want. That or touch screens (please no)

Or make it blend into the chasis without having to have grooves etc where dust can get in. That'd be cool.

ASUS tried to do a top 17.3" laptop,their idea - it is not a substitute for G752, it is a step above...they say that it is the thinnest laptop with GTX1080,but they do not want to talk about the comparison with AORUS X7 DT V6...G701VI does not have an optical drive - Good ... it does not have SATA3 HDD/SSD, only 2xM.2 - What !? ... I think G701VI looks worse than G752,especially the display hinges and case design of cooling system...and what else is interesting - not a word about "ROG 3D Vapor Chamber"...
For me G701VI - is not a finished product in terms of design and in terms of components!

It's pretty awesome Asus has released multiple models for the 1080, single and SLI, air-cooled and water-cooled :)

I'm thinking something like a G701VI or G800VI for a single 1080.

A G702VS if there will be a 1070 model? Or a GL702VM-DB74 if only 1060. Something to carry around.

The GX800 is out there too, but I still haven't seen a production model review or a shipping date for the US.

Well the G701VI is almost 1,5cm slimmer than G752vs/vy, but has sticking out hinges on the bottom of the lid, probably to be slimmer. It is also shorter on depth by 24mm. Maybe it will fit in ROG Nomad backpack then. Nice comparison video by Asus Italy representative. Should be appearing in shops right about now, from what he says in the video.
