Title says it all.

I found this version and was unsure of it.. what's so special about it? (G752VS-RB71)

The ones around me are called G752VS-GC086T.

What's the difference?

Normally, it's to do with the part specifications - each one has something slightly (or largely) different than the other models (of G752VS).

To see what I mean, check this out:

Ah, it's largely cheaper because it doesn't come with an SSD.. now I see.

Usually there is no reason to concern yourself with these details, as you anyway get a general overview of what the hardware configuration is when purchasing.

Typically all the different identifiers have to do with:
Different regions (both marketing wise and possible hardware limitations imposed by law, e.g. the total frequency range of publicly available 2.4GHz band)
Different parts (6th gen/7th gen, HQ/HK, GeForce 980m/1070, etc.)
Different part manufacturers (primarily about RAM and NVMe SSD)
Factory OC
Promotion-eligibility
and so on

Well, I want the G752VS-RB71 since it seems to be the cheapest model with the 1070m in it. What other drawbacks are there in this unit other than the missing SSD (which I can supply my own 2.5") and the i7 6700HQ?

Crap I just noticed.. is the Storage Layout 1x 2.5" SATA and 1 dual NVMe? You cannot have 2x 2.5" SATA slots?

Damn it, I guess there's no point going for the cheaper model then if I cannot put my 2.5" SSD inside next to the 7200RPM HDD.

Can someone confirm? :c

I believe all G752VS have 2x NVMe (over PCIe) + 1x SATA3.
You should be able to replace the optical drive with a caddy and have a 2nd 2.5" SATA drive in there, though.

Hmm.. I wonder how much the Caddy costs.. I certainly don't use the CD Tray that's for sure..

Yes since the G752 came out they all have 2x M.2 NVME, 1 SATA slots. I don't know what the GL or GX models have.

Oh well I guess it's still a plus since NVMe is much faster and can be RAID'ed in one HDD bay.. so that's cool. I just wish I could've skipped the expense and used my own drive. Oh well. ;<

Well yes, my configuration right now is 1 512GB Samsung 960 Pro M.2 NVME and my 1 TB 850 Pro in my SATA slot. I just keep my OEM 256 GB M.2 SSD incase I have to send in for RMA or other such thing. I replaced to 7200 RPM 1 TB hard drive with my SSD and put the 1 TB in my old G75 and sent it off to a family member. I keep external USB 3.0 hard drives for back up and any too large to store on my notebook files on these external drives. Most of these type files are Videos movies etc that don't benefit from the much faster SSD of any type. But yes to get the most benefit from any of the G752 models and M.2 SSD for your OS and main software are required. Hard drives or SATA SSD will really be a bottle neck. Whether you save money on the unit by getting one with out the M.2 or Add one later your going to end up with one. The only drawback to getting one with out the M.2 SSd is to install one after you get the unit is getting the RAID driver install so that the BIOS can see the new M.2 SSD.
