    Awesome. Thanks for the response, I know that question has probably been asked and answered a dozen times but right now my phone is the only access to the internet that I have and searching through a sea of webpages is a pain.

    I for one don't like my computer looking like a tablet but the biggest reason is the obtrusive user account and forcing me to supply a password and email to log into MY computer.

    You can install Windows 8.1, with a normal account, with a local admin account, with a MS Account, any way you like - it's not forced by default in anyway. You can have the shell tool to make it look like Win 7 as well with the start menu and the start button as how Win 7 was, if you see fit.

    Completely agree with hmscott's statement there though !
    Where to find latest Asus Rog G750/751 drivers?

    Please use search in the forums, there might be alot of threads which have similar answers to what you are looking for!

    You don't really need an MS account. During install, in small letters, you can click on the non-Microsoft account option.
    I installed Classic Shell on Win 8 to give the Win 7 feel (it's a solid program - I can access metro if I want as well = once a week maybe)

    Guys,

    Bought same model from XOTICPC. After one week, laptop would not boot. Back to XOTICPC.com and then to ASUS to replace motherboard.:ASUS makes own motherboards. After 5 weeks received it back. Within two weeks, battery would not charge: Even new would not charge past 87%. Sent back to XOTIC PC to ASUS to have battery and power block replaced. Was told I needed an UPS. Got an APC Back-UPS 550G as recommended by both APC and XoticPC. Have had laptop for 2 weeks now and battery charges to 100% within 10 minutes or so. Very happy now after 5 months of problems. Love the backlight keyboard.

    Hi people!

    I plan to get a G750JM (maybe JS if I hear that's better from stability point of view). My problem is that all over this forum people seem to buy their machines with Win8 preinstalled. In my country it comes with FreeDOS. It's cheaper, but I need to buy Win8 anyway ... On the other hand I will not worry about restore partitions as there will be none.

    QUESTION:
    If I am to install everything myself (I understand it's doable), including Win8 OS, is it a better bet to get the JS rather than JM? This is in reference to the BSODs, USB3, sound, LCD luminosity, etc. From what I read I feel the JS is more stable, but I'm not sure I want to pay more on a hunch.

    Also if there's any other reason (temperatures!?) to choose one instead of the other, I'e be grateful for advice.

    Thank you!

    Cheers!

    Win 8 comes with compatible drivers. You should be able to boot up fine. After that, go online and update drivers for:
    support.asus.com
    0) check bios is up to date
    1) Wireless card
    2) Ethernet card
    3) SD card reader
    4) Bluetooth card
    5) touchpad
    6) sound card
    www.geforce.com
    5) nVIDIA GPU card

    Chose whatever fits you. Don't worry about temps. These computers are well built and all temps are way below burning.
