    Coming Soon: G75VX

    This is an early heads up prior to our official announcement. We've been under Nvidia NDA until the GTX 670MX launched last week, but now we're still under ASUS NDA (which I'm breaking.. but with good reason imo) so please understand I can't really answer more questions.

    For those who are contemplating a G75VW now, please take this info to help your buying decision: whether you want to buy a G75 now because it suits your needs and you need one now, or, wait for the G75VX and it's slight upgrades. Official announcement is about a month away, but depending on how long the G75 took to get to your region after that was announced, use that as a guide as to when you'll see the VX.

    All I can say now is that the G75VX will feature the GTX 670MX (Google the performance relative to GTX 670M and see if it matters to you) and maybe you want to see here for another idea of what to expect, but I will stress to ignore any illusion of pricing you see until it's all properly confirmed.

    However believe it or not we've still managed to keep a couple of other supplementary hardware upgrades secret, and for that you'll have to wait til later (or I really will lose my job).

    Ah, this puts me in a predicament... I had my G71 insured for accidents and it broke to a point of replacement (still functioning in a limited fashion right now). I was ready to put in an order today for the Newegg version of the G75 (G75VW-NS71). I'm not asking for solid prices but is it going to be significantly higher than the $1400 price mark Newegg has? I'll accept predictions because I'm sure most of you know more than I would.

    If Marshall is hinting on this right now ... has to be right around the corner.

    Windows 8 is also releasing "soon" ... guessing that a refresh of both the machines and operating system installed is out real soon ...

    Nobody in the laptop manufacturing sector is able to increase prices ... well except apple maybe ...

    Unfortunately not sorry. As you know the next best thing is always around the corner. Such is the ever progression technology.

    Yes the machines will be shipped with Win 8. As will the 14" due and G55s. All notebooks will get an upgrade as Microsoft will simply stop selling 7 in favor of 8 to OEMs like us. So likewise, if you really only want Windows 7, buy THIS month.

    We've covered the GTX 680M extensively in other threads. It is about twice the TDP and several times the price. The entire G75 chassis would need to be redesigned into a much thicker and more expensive desktop replacement. It's an absolute physical impossibility to have a GTX 680 in a G55 chassis without melting the desk underneath it.

    GrecoISU - I simply don't know sorry. I have no access to our sales channel, only the launch and promotional plans. Until it's officially announced I cannot even ask sorry.
