    I'd postpone the investment for the next generation of the G series, hmscott. $3,000. Yikes. If I was to spend that type of money, I'd want to invest it into the next thing that comes out. But I'd probably want to take the cheaper JY. Those 4860+ CPUs run really hot.

    Edweird, waiting for Skylake mobile, or even the 980TI mobile is going to be quite a long wait.

    The problem with getting the $2499 model is you can't be sure it is going to have the M.2 PCIE x4 slot, or if it is going to be a 2.5" 256GB SSD.

    The only M.2 PCIE x4 sure thing is the $2999 model. At least then you can be certain you will get the high speed M.2 PCIE x4 socket.

    The reason the 4860 CPU runs hotter than the 4710 because it Turbo boosts higher. If you have a hot one, reduce Turbo boost 1x with Intel XTU.

    The G751JY-DB73X has a 4870HQ 2.5ghz-3.7ghz, and the 4870HQ is the first Haswell CPU with Intel TSX-NI enabled, even better.

    I don't think it's worth waiting.

    Question. What's with the asus turbo master? I thought that wasnt actually a thing. Seeing as the non-gsync models dont have that software. And after looking online for it, turned out to be a flop

    Fair point, but I said those things considering you still probably have your more-than-capable G750. (I wasn't aware they made Ti versions of mobile GPUs.)
    If you have the money, I wouldn't stop you. I'd still get the cheaper one, though. I haven't actually seen an ASUS default SKU G751 that comes with a 2.5 inch drive, they all seem to come with the M.2 drives - by my experience, 2.5 inch drives get added by stores to make a custom SKU. Or you could...you know...message the shop and ask them what the drive is. Either way, even if it does come with a M.2 drive, it's not going to be PCIE 3.0 x4 speeds anyways and as far as we know, even with the newest Samsung drives, the max theoretical speed is not attainable because of some sort of silly software restrictions.

    I also mentioned the 48** issue because they seem to run hotter running at the SAME speeds as the 4710s. I've seen 2 G751s before me with 4850s running the same tasks at 3.5GHz and running 4-5 degrees hotter than my 4710 for no apparent reason. I think it probably has something to do with that better but useless GPU - maybe it takes more space or something, I don't know.

    @bluepinapples That's a mix of better power delivery hardware and using GPU Tweak for an overlock. It's a bit misleading, yeah.

    the next rig i buy will have multiple pcie m.2 slots. until then, my g751jy will do. speaking of xtu, my system will no longer load it. when i click on it, it gives me an error message saying if i have some other performance tuning application running, close it and then start xtu. but i don't have any other app running for this. so i am not sure what to do with it. i have uninstalled it with revo, and reloaded it, only to see the same message. any ideas???
