    Question Which G75VW model should I get?

    I've been looking through some of the models that people have listed for the G75VW, but so far I haven't found a model with specs simpler to these:

    3rd Gen-i7 2.6GHz Processor
    12-16 GB RAM
    120/128 GB SSD Primary HD
    (Optional) 500-750 GB HD or Hybrid
    8X DVD-RW

    Does anyone know of a model with these specs?

    I think the main problem you're going to have is finding the 2.6GHz CPU, and in all honesty the 3610qm is more than capable in this system. I'd say spend that extra money on getting a larger SSD instead.

    If I were to get a large SSD(256GB), and just get the 3610qm, which model would that be?

    Personally, I bought the G75VW ($1249) that Best Buy sells and got a 120GB Intel Series 520 SSD ($149) and moved the 1TB drive that came with the laptop to the spare drive bay for storage. All I am lacking is the 8GB RAM ($50) to have 16GB. Haven't got around to ordering it and will probably wait until the return period expires. Total: $1450 approximately....

    FYI a 240GB Intel Series 520 SSD is around $258 (or less!) for comparison purposes....

    Get the base best buy G75VW BBK5 ... 40 bucks about for 8 gb more ram. Prices of Intel 520 and Samsung 830 SSD drives vary but really at this point well under 200 bucks for just 120 gb primary ssd. Personally I recommend getting 180 gb SSD at minimum so you don't run of space on primary drive before the laptop is history but 120 gb drives are also probably survivable if you plan it out well.

    Would I be better off getting the DS72? I have a $2100 budget for the laptop.

    What's your purchase time frame?

    I would wait a few days before purchasing anything
