    Darnassus, there are several problems with the G751 right now that are putting people off it.

    1) Many of the G751's coming off the production line have Speaker sound issues - all the sound comes out the Subwoofer, or all 3 speakers have the same audio output - no fix yet.

    2) Some USB ports, left side, are dropping connections - mouse, disk, flash drive, etc. No fix.

    3) The Intel 7260 Wifi gives a lot of people compatibility problems, either at home, work, or eleswhere. The home one they can solve with updated firmware / hardware, but work and elsewhere is out of their control and causes loss of connectivity.

    4) The usual cosmetic defects from early production of new hardware.

    5) The look... a bit gaudy from the G750 to the G751.

    If the G750JY didn't have Optimus I would go for that myself for #5, the rest don't bother me as they can / will get fixed.

    But it does have optimus, stupid ASUS. I love this laptop style. JUST GIVE ME THE POWER! All I want is an 8gb 980m, 120hz lcd panel and it to look just like my laptop style. ASUS, you have forsaken me!

    I think the 751 design is a bit weird-childlish,cause of its orange-red keyboard color,logo and exhaust vents are to obvious like they are like sparkles...I think the 750 look its just how I want macabre and darkish,even its a biiit louder and with max. ~5/7 degrees more hotter on full load.


    P.S : Btw,if in like 3~ years it will come 951 models with Skylake / Broadwell CPUs (eg : 5860HQ) and new Nvidia series like KM3000...it will be more powerful than my monster? with like 30%? (or more). If that means ~ 15/20 more FPS and ~4/5k more points in benchmarks,I really don't mind,honest. I mean,I think it won't make this model to bow in knees in front of him.

    I agree.
    I have one coming so I will judge it with my own eyes soon.

    This G750JY is so... wrong. Why are they updating G750 to be partly better than G751JY? I can't prevent myself from thinking that they're disowning G751JY, they have rethought. There must be something really wrong with G751JY to go back to an old product and restart updating it. I was thinking to buy a G751JY (after problems resolution), but now I'm so confused: buying a G750JY is out of question (Optimus inside), but they're making fun of G751JY's buyers.

    Asus just put IPS screen in it. The colors are so much better than in old TN panels for me. I don't mind to have Optimus since it may actually help it to work quieter and I don't want to hear it when I don't play....

    What's so bad about Optimus? Like.. literally bad?

    With Games going onto the iGPU, you can set a custom profile to MAKE the game use the dGPU, right? If so, the main issue seems solved.

    The only issue I see with Optimus is the fact it limits your NVidia Control Panel's options, disallowing you to make your own custom resolution, example, boosting your Hz to something like 85. Doesn't the IPS provide enough performance to make 60Hz desirable again? (Good color, no scrolling, no tearing etc.)

    What's the ACTUAL problem against Optimus? The above stuff is all I currently know about, which SEEMS to be rectified on the G751.

    I mean, if Optimus will allow my battery to run a few hours longer if I'm web browsing or playing a lightweight game which the iGPU in the CPU can handle.. then, that's actually a good thing, right?

    Optimus is a GPU system control tyrant.. but is it ACTUALLY affecting things?


    Although with the G750JY (Attention: G750 model) I can see where Optimus would make problems.. I just thought I'd ask in general respect.

    [...]
    Optimus is about a virtual GPU which can be automatically or manually set for making use of a pool of GPUs. Manually setting is not always working, but nobody gives a ****, because (thanks Apple) notebooks should not be about best performance. The "not always working" thing is scaring people, specially because sometimes it means "your software is not working at all, you bought a brand new lemon".

    To avoid this problem the manufacturers' solution is "not implementing Optimus" (the Asus' way) or allowing to physically disable the iGPU (which would probably increase the price of a notebook by $2).

    I have the first option on my G750JX and am more than happy to never see the Optimess and all its problems.
    But the second option is so obvious, that there can only be conspiracy somewhere.
    An option in BIOS must surely cost next to nothing or even a tiny hardware switch to physicaly disable the damm thing would stop all the moaning in its tracks.
    Also, for the people asking for 120Hz, it aint gonna happen as long as you have the graphics channeling (read crawling) through the Intel as that is not capable of those speeds. There must be a whole different approach with Intel to do that.
    That is why my 3D 120Hz screen is directly connected to an internal display port (fast) and the Intel (slow) is not connected at all.
