    Question Port Plugs to prevent dust buildup? - G752VY

    Hey ROG community

    Hoping someone can help me out. My old G74SX had an issue with dust getting into the ports and I'd like to avoid that this time around with my new G752VY.

    Does anyone know of a port plug kit that would suit my needs?

    Would be nice if ASUS would include such a kit in the box for future releases. A $1.00 kit of silicone port plugs would be nice after dropping that kind of cash on a high end laptop

    Yes there are rubber plugs in the dust evacuation ports, you would take them out while using and replace them when not using the notebook. Lots of people threw them out while unpacking there notebooks, not knowing what they were.

I will put it to good use and not send you anything for it either.

    Its obvious that any review that is actually good is done by them or someone they paid to do it.

    I did find other kits but they didn't have all the plugs for all ports.
