    reading closer into it, it will be too big for almost all laptops... unless you want to modify your laptop to a degree (voiding warranty obviously)

    Power requirments @1.7W look normal for a laptop hard drive, so its probably just the thickness and maybe too the reduced airflow around it in tight spaces like notebooks. But the G74 has two HDD large bays with caddies, and its a big form factor with less cramped internal space..I wonder if one of these might fit in there w/o a caddy and work?? Gonna measure my G74 sometime this week.

    That's EXACTLY the bug I have, my gaming library runs close to 1TB

    This waiting game should prove useful for my patience building... *sigh*

    Any news?

    An official ASUS dealer here (Italy) told me that they will release some info this week, and that the PCs will be avaiable something like 10 days later....is that possible? I don't think so...What do you guys think?

    But how long is it gonna take from announcment to have it in our hands?

    It's just cause i ordered the G75VW about 2 months ago but then was able to deal for the G75VX when it will be released. So if I have to wait another month for the G75VX I'd probably get the G75VW. It's just a matter of waiting for me. And i HATE to wait

    Personally I'd rather wait as long as it takes for the Windows 8 drivers to be ironed out and stable. Since the G46 was just released and expected in stores by December, that should give us an indication on when to expect the G75VX. Just my opinion.

    So should I buy the G75VW now or wait for the VX?
