    Yes it seems to be that way sadly.

    So a store here in Norway got a pretty good weekend deal on a Asus ROG G751JY, being discounted from 19000 Norwegian kroner to 14500 kr. Basically 20000 kr would buy me the new Clevo P771ZM with i7 4790K and GTX 980M 8GB, 1TB HDD and 256GB SSD but without Windows. Reason i'm leaning more towards the Asus one is better battery life and it being cheaper.

    17" matte IPS 1920x1080
    Intel i7 4710HQ 2,5 GHz
    Nvidia Geforce GTX 980M (Not the 8GB one D: )
    Apparantly Optimus free?
    16GB of RAM so guessing its 2x 8GB
    1TB mechanical drive and 256GB M.2 SSD
    Standard DVD-RW optical drive

    Anyone got some experience with this notebook? Going to order it as a store pickup in case i get a dodgy unit so it's easier to get it returned.

    If you can afford it, go for the Clevo, way better performance :)

    Probably do that anyways. Seems they dont have enough free slots to upgrade storage capacity. Thanks for the response though.

    For a guy like me, it's hard to imagine way better performance than this :p

    I highly doubt Clevo is even close to Asus' build quality, if I were you i'd take it the laptop's awesome :D

    Ended up getting a even better deal on the same notebook so ended up paying 12000 kr for it. (1578 USD) Just too good to pass up and since it is a store pickup i can just return it if i need to RMA it.
    My first ever Asus notebook so hopefully it can live up to the reviews i been reading about it.

    Follow this link and click on the text that says "Spesifikasjoner". Seems every retailer here in Norway sells it with the Intel i7 4710HQ but at least i got the good one with 980M. :) Even ended up getting it cheaper that the 970M model. haha

    Great :D

    I got the most powerful one: 4860, 32gb ram, 980m, 512 m.2 ssd. It cost me 2000€, it hurt alot but in the end I was not dissapointed.
