    Hi all...

    I don't understand if there will be new G-Series laptops... I am very curious about this, because I need to buy a new pc and I am very interested about G-Series...

    New or just another refresh? I'm guess a haswell refresh

    @bignazpwns, i think we can call it new because the chipset, cpu, and gpu (key components imo) are different

    to be honest i'm excited. i hope they can get the weight down a little on the new G55 and maybe up the battery life.

    i'm thinking about taking the plunge on a G46 but i'd like to wait about 6 months or so.

    looking at what have been published *link removed* and *link removed*, well, the hope is slim :/
    After installing an mSATA in my old G55 I definitely wanted something more user-upradeable. I wen't with a Clevo P150em and I love it! I ended up ordering it bare-bone to save a lot of money. (Well kind of). It came with an i7 3630 and I splurged for the GTX 680m. There was no RAM, HDD, OS. I figured why pay for it when I am going to change the RAM, HDD to a SSD, and now I have my own install disk.

    I could have upgraded the processor as well, but the 0.X gain to price ratio is retarded in my opinion.

    Haswell is more power-efficient, so that should improve the battery life. I'm not confidant about the weight, since that is more a function of the cooling system (ASUS better not damage this) and battery, both of which will increase weight if the performance is increased.
    I am disturbed because I cannot break my system...found out there were others trying to cope! We have a support group on here, if your system will not break, please join!

    We now have 178 people whose systems will not break! Yippee!

    Nah wont call it new until they add some key features like new ports "Like a optical out" MSATA slot" stuff like that. If that's the case then the VX was a new system when in reality it was just a refresh. Haswell never impressed me i was really looking for more cpu power but in the G75 people just wont see a diff between ivy or haswell. Batt. life wont be much longer, performance increase people just wont really see it outside of numbers in benches.

    Chances are it will be using the same GTX 670MX as the VX just to burn up some stock and the second version will have the nvidia GTX 7XX in it. Personally im hoping they up the quality of the LCD's since they suck and spend some cash where they need to so they can be competitive. Fix the issues that plague the G75 series then move on.

    yeah i have to agree that it's PITA to put the mSATA in the laptop.

    wow it's so nice you can get the barebone in that form! i am upgrading my cpu next week. i don't mind being a retard just enjoy doing the upgrades myself haha!

    i bet the power brick is smaller this time (150w, if the posted specs are right).

    the cooling of asus machines is the most apparent differentiator from competitions, imo (that's the main reason i like this g55 more than m17x r4 :/)
