    Notes before buying G751 series

    Somethings to look out for in addition to our upgrade guide (published on Weds 22nd Oct):

    > When buying an SSD model, take note that it's SATA or PCIE. PCIE is 2x faster than SATA. Only models with M.2 pre-fitted will be supported with an M.2 bracket. We will not provide upgrade support for models purchased without M.2 initially sorry.

    > M.2 slot supports up to PCI-E 4x cards (like XP941)

    > Only one of the drive bays has an optional M.2 slot. Both have SATA ports. You cannot run 2x 2.5" SSD + M.2 for example, but you can run 2x 2.5 inch or 1x 2.5 inch + 1x M.2. (The G771 can run 2x 2.5" + M.2 however!)

    > The left drive bay (when flipped over) with both M.2 + SATA ports is the primary.

    > Optical drive is held in by a single screw and uses a standard mobile SATA port.

    > Remember to buy DDR3L (1.35V memory) when upgrading.

    > You only have access to two SO-DIMM slots, so if you want to max out your memory (32GB) you have to buy a 16GB model to start with.

    > You do not have access to the WiFi module.

    > GTX 860M model is the only one with touchscreen.

    > All models use IPS Full HD displays. 120/144Hz displays are supported over HDMI/DP (VG248Q for example).

    > Four display outputs can all be used at once: laptop display + HDMI, DP and d-sub together.

    > Each suffix-SKU (-DS/-CH/etc) spec is decided by country/retailer, not ASUS - please contact them, rather than ASUS, to confirm specific spec details. "what memory?" "what SSD?" etc

    Is g751jm cost same as g750jm or more? Touchscreen is present on all g751jm models? or it is touch and mate? For me touchscreen is win, because it is glosy! Even the best matte display wont be anywhere near the quality of average glossy display. Thank you for answers☺

    Guys, can someone please confirm that changing the hard drive yourself does NOT result in a voided warranty? itr is a suer-replaceable part so I would hope that this was not the case, and that we are free to upgrade it whenever we choose?

    Is the Optical drive in the G751 a 12.7mm or 9.5mm drive?

    I plan on buying a hard drive caddy for the optical drive, since I hardly ever use DVDs.

    What size do I need to get for my future G751?

    It does not result in voided warranty. It is in the user serviceable area.

    Hi Marshall,

    Thanks for the rpely, much appreciated! Another question(s):

    1) Does the following modle of G751 have an SSD also, or is it literally just a 1TB drive?
    2) What type of SSD slot does it have, SATA or PCI-E?

    ASUS Notebook 17.3" G751JY-T7018H http://www.microspot.ch/msp/product/...18h/detail.jsf

    Cheers,

    Rich.

    1) Please contact the retailer. It looks like just a 1TB HDD.
    2) Every model has both sockets, but unless it comes with a PCIE M.2 SSD you won't a get PCIE M.2 bracket. Please confirm with the retailer direct if it comes with a second HDD bracket inside for a SATA SSD also if it only ships with 1 drive.

    Will there be a model that has a replaceable battery?

    The integrated battery, seems like a poor decision.

    Integrated batteries are increasingly the norm for notebooks due to modern design constraints, and the fact that we find few people come to us to buy replacements outside of business contracts, AND there are a lot of poorly made 3rd party ones that can damage the product.

    The G771 series has a removable battery if you really must have one.
