    Make sure you check out the G703GI owners lounge. There are some video reviews there: http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/asus-g703gi-x74-owners-lounge.816974/page-5

    Also, check out this review from notebook check:
    https://www.notebookcheck.net/Asus-...-GTX-1080-Full-HD-Laptop-Review.308366.0.html

    Granted the Notebookcheck review is for an 8950HK. Not sure why you want to go for the 8750H on this system, but I would be especially concerned over this laptop’s thermal performance:

    “Unfortunately, the hexa-core CPU cannot maintain its full turbo over longer periods. In our Cinebench loop, the performance dropped by about 15% from the second run onward. Even in the first run, the Core i9-8950HK's clock speed fluctuated between 2.9 and 4.8 GHz, whereby it reached an average of 4.3 GHz. It is worth mentioning that most of the Coffee Lake laptops we have reviewed to this point have not been able to maintain their turbo's full potency—though the loss is not always so substantial.”

    The GT75 owners lounge has an extensive review of that laptop. The Notebookcheck review, again of the 8950HK, was more favorable:

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/MSI-G...-GTX-1080-Full-HD-Laptop-Review.303182.0.html

    “We tested the extent to which the Core i9-8950HK can maintain its initial performance with a thirty-minute Cinebench multi-core benchmark loop. The GT75 performed admirably, managing to maintain a relatively constant clock speed even after the 50th benchmark pass. The CPU averaged 4.3 GHz, the maximum Turbo Boost speed when working across all six cores. “

    In the end, your choice has to decide what your gaming needs are. The GT75 would be better for extended, sustained high clock game play.

    I think the majority here would go for the GT75.

    The GT 75 is superior to the Asus, the I7 runs at full speed on the MSI notebook, on Asus it power limit throttles.

    Get a nice long warranty. This is a 3000€ machine after all.
