    Is this GX700 out yet? I can't seem to find anything.

    I haven't seen anything this impressive in a long time. What other laptop can match it in horsepower? Is there one?

    There are.
    Clevo/Sager have a model with desktop GPU and CPU's, as well as MSI.
    There are other new manufacturers jumping in but I would wait and see how those turn out.

    This is the route I was going to go. You get a smaller laptop with an i7 quad cpu and use an egpu solution. Problem with this is that you got to use a smaller screen for games, or you will need to use an external monitor. I like a laptop with a big screen rather than have to use the laptop with an external screen. That said I would get an egpu if it was compatible with the g751 in the future when the gtx970m starts struggling with newer games. I just don't see that happening within the next 3 years.

    Asus is still moving forward with the GX700, it's been released elsewhere, but I haven't seen it in the US.

    New Asus video about the GX700 cooling system released a couple of days ago...

    i like the idea of but as you will be docking & unlocking the system over time the water level would drop along with slowly introducing impurities in to the cooling loop how do you even bleed and refill it? i would especially not want to be bleeding & refilling a the 24 inch version as presumably you would have to do it when it is connected to the docking station?
    would be better all self contained with in the laptop but i imagine that asetek
    own the patent on that & is probably why they built the water cooled m18x saw enthusiasts modding laptops to be water cooled although external & thought there would be money in it
    but even then i wouldn't want to bleed & refill that m18x

    I am tempted to get the GX800 if it has a desktop CPU so I can use my current Silicon Lottery CPU and 3000 MHz. RAM

    The GX800 already comes with 3000mhz ram, 64GB. It also comes with a 6820HK conveniently soldered to the motherboard, to keep it from falling out of the socket...:confused:;)

    The GXXX 1080 SLI might have a desktop CPU, as the 1080 SLI is responding to higher power CPU's to get higher GPU scores, and that would be amazing.
