    I am a bit disappointed by these specs so far. I expected G752VY to have the much speculated :) GTX 990m or at least GTX 980m with 8GB/6GB VRAM.

    I haven't found it mentioned anywhere, but I hope that G752 will have official G-SYNC support.

    Looks like the only changes from G751 are Windows 10 out of the box, DDR4 RAM and Skylake processors. I am no expert, but from what I read the DDR4 RAM in these laptops won't make any real difference in gaming and the Skylake processors are not much more powerful than previous generation of Intel processors.

    And of course the new design. On the renders it looks great (imo), on the photos not so much. But I think that the photos don't do it justice and it would look better on photos taken with a better camera and in better lighting. And maybe people at ASUS managed to improve the cooling.

    The chassis looks to be about the same dimensions, so the motherboard is probably pretty similar which explains the lack of 6/8GB on the cards. To be honest I think those VRAM amounts are completely unnecessary though.

    The design is pretty slick. It looks like they've gone with brushed metal instead of the soft rubber? Hard to tell.

    If that's the same keyboard as the G751, I'll be really disappointed. It loos like they removed/changed some of the stupid key layout, but kept the same colour/backlight colour. The keyboard is hard to make out, even with the backlight at max brightness in a dark room.

    G752 is pretty much a refresh for G751. The 990M apparently has a newly design chassis, not sure how it looks like.

    Looks like G752 is going to be officially announced pretty soon.

    I hope you are right, but there have already been a few games with crazy ( >4GB ) VRAM requirements and I have a bad feeling that in the near future it will only be getting worse. Reasons being PS4+Xbox One with that shared memory pool of theirs and lazy PC ports of games developed primarily for these consoles.

    If they don't have anything up their sleeve for the official announcement, then yep... pretty much a refresh of G751. :(

    Too bad, battery seems to be not user replaceable. I'm itching to replace my G73JH already, though I'll let the money sit on stocks for now :p

    Based on their press release it has a dust-release cooling system, and overclocked cpu n gpu right out the box.

    I think its a well redesigned sequel/refresh of the g751. I think their engineers actually listened to the complaints they had on the g751. The record key is moved a few inches to the center so it won't be accidentally pressed when u use esc button. People would say it takes a lot to disassemble and clean the fans, hence they have a new dust removal cooling system. Most people would say it is inferior to build quality to alien's so they used an aluminum chassis and a touch of led lights. The only similar to it with the g751 is the graphics card 980m, but it would already be a overclocked gpu right from the box. Still we never know, they might actually use the new 990m gpu, its scheduled to come out in the nex few days/weeks/months.
    A boring refresh for me is the AW17r3

    You can't really release a product when a GPU is not out yet of course ;)
