    If the G75 with a GTX 670m is disappointing to you, then I think you shouldn't be looking at laptops my friend. I suggest building yourself a desktop; and if portability is something you also desire, then perhaps building a SFF PC is the way to go for you. That way you can at least transport it easily enough to LAN parties.

    Is a 680m pointless then in a laptop? Hell no. Trying to achieve a steady fps 60+ at *only* 1080p max gfx no AA, the 670MX would have been the better choice and obviously the 680m. SFF isint the point, some of us just want beefy lappys to run games at a fluid rate.

    Well thanks for being honest about that part ...

    I am still getting blown away by how many people apparently spending way more than a thousand US dollars and do not understand what they have purchased and how it compares technically with other expensive options.

    You know, I think it is a matter of each of us has different priorities. Some want battery life, some want extreme performance, some want low weight. We can't all get all of what we want, though I think that we should all lobby ASUS to use standard GPU parts so that everyone can upgrade as they see fit. That, and ASUS can pwn the custom notebook market...

    a 7970m would have been the ideal choice but asus has to please the Nvidia gods even though they havent launched a good chip in a while

    One think I hope the G75VX will have is color changing LED backlit keyboard like that of MSI and Alienware. I think it is time it becomes a feature that is standard.

    Actually that Bang & Olufsen sound system of ASUS' is not all that much better than the G74's speakers...when we bought our G74 I fell in love with it, put Linux on it, and began monopolizing it much to my wife's wagging finger (supposedly it was to be the family computer...hah!), so I bought her an N53SN with this ICEpower Bang & Olufsen sound system...was nice, but somewhat disappointed with it compared to my 74...expected some sort of breakthrough I guess, which it is not (distortion at higher levels, tinny, little depth of bass: no subwoofer). But it did get her off my case about hogging the G74!

    I know the N55 is supposed to be really good, I don't know about the N53. Still, good work at keeping the wife happy! Debian, you using? Which window manager?

    Well, exactly. As some of you want big laptops that are very expensive and don't compare to a similar desktop, some of us want a laptop that is cool, not very noisy and gives a decent performance level. Meet G75. At around 1000€ I can't beat that. Anything else is like twice the money and will make so much noise, I want to AX it sometime (me having a Clevo as well and it's also hot like crazy).

    @c_man, I agree with you. I like my quiet ASUS...stealth fighter design and sounds. It is nice to be able to run VMs without boiling coffee behind the computer... lol

    Some people have transportation/space requirements precluding a desktop. Otherwise, I would rather have (build) a desktop for a lot less and get something more powerful.
