    PCIE x4 so at least 20Gbit/s.

    For those looking at super-sized M.2 drives - remember you are limited to 2280 so cannot use super long 22110 drives.

    In my country I see a G751JY version with only 1TB HD and 16GB of RAM, which is really inexpensive. I mean it has the price of a G750JS (a 870m notebook). I'm considering 2 months of hibernation, but I'm scared it could end as the episode "Go God Go" of South Park.
    I am also buying this model and will upgrade the SSD etc myself.

    it's a great price, but I can't help thinking that ASUS have really done some head-scratchingly silly stuff with what I hear about the lack of accessibility of half of the RAm slots, the bizzarre partitioning of the hard-drives, and the fact that all models don't include basic things like the M2 adapter. it's really unnecessary, and confusing for the buyers.

    Richdog, I don't disagree with your observations but some clarification is warranted.
    The RAM slot design has been present for several generations of this computer. At least now if you order a 16GB you don't get 4x4 (I think some G750s had this), you're guaranteed 2x8, with the accessible slots open.
    The partitioning is for the most part a Microsoft forced design. I attempted repeated clean installs of 8.1 with one partition and the install overrode my attempts and created several partitions.

    I totally agree with your comment about the M2 adapter - Hey at LEAST make it available...

    i bought g751jy without ssd, because i had no other option in my country. I bought m.2 separately and only way to fit it there is with a tape, because i cant get hold of m.2 adapter. I am really disappointed asus.

    RedHineY, I'm assuming (and hoping) that the m.2 caddy will become available for purchase from Asus (and 3rd parties) eventually. Until then hopefully we'll be able to rig something up, as I'm planning on doing the same thing you're doing.

    If you come up with a good way to secure the card in there, post some pictures for the rest of us.

    I know this is a rather simple question, but how does one remove the screws to the HD caddy? I've tried multiple smaller screwdrivers, ones I've built my desktop with, but they aren't budging. I don't want to strip them, but I'm afraid I will if I try much further. Can anyone post what screwdriver they used or size? I'd rather purchase a new screwdriver than to strip these small screws.

    We're not planning to I'm afraid. 3D printing to the rescue, perhaps.

    Hmm.. is it me or does this not sound like a response we shouldn't be hearing....

    What's the point of giving us a M.2 slot but not give us any means to support it. It would've made more sense just to eliminate this feature to save money on models not shipping with a caddy and M.2 SSD.......... smh....

    Guess I'll have to invest a thousand bucks and start selling M.2 Caddys.

    LOL, a friend of mine is a machinist and is equipped to produce metal bracket. I was thinking about the same, since I've got an orignical m.2 bracket in my JY model. Just hope ASUS would not file a copyringht claim on it ;-)

    The drive bay for the 1tb hdd, is it sata II or III?

    I want to buy the Samsung 850 pro to replace the hdd, I want to have the 256 gb pcie for os and 1 tb 850 pro for storage. If it not sata III then I'll will stick with the stock hdd.
