    Only thing you would need to do right away is update the ATK driver for the keyboard and touch pad driver, as soon as you get it.
    Thanks, will do!

    As far as I know it wouldn't affect the nVidia card, just the CPU graphics chip, and also not very convincing:

    Thanks for pointing this out though. Optimus is not vital for me, I was just curious if it's disabled in all models or not.

    They seem to really like the panel.

    Contrast is excellent at nearly 1000:1, and the maximum white level of 289 nits is a big step up from the ~150 nits of the G73 series. Given the change in characteristics, it’s no surprise that the LCD panel used in the G74SX is different this round, coming from Chimei Innolux (instead of HannStar). The model is N173HGE-L21, and it appears that our contrast ratio result is better than the advertised 500:1. Backlight intensity is up, and we also note that color gamut is up, with a slight (not generally noticeable) improvement in color accuracy as well. Without calibration, the panel has a decidedly bluish cast, but that’s common among LED backlit panels. Overall, I definitely appreciate the changes made to the LCD panel; the previous version was good, but the new version matches or improves on it in virtually every way.
