i dont think laptops can be upgraded except for ram?
AND, GTX670m....upgrading it, you got to be kidding. I would die for a GTX650m! or a GTX570m.

if you want the ultimate beefy PC, get a desktop. Build it.

You can forget upgrading the GPU, Asus uses a proprietary format and the fact that the GPU is even removable is already a miracle. You can also forget upgrading the CPU unless you're willing to go through a lot of delicate disassembly steps too. Even then I wouldn't consider it, you'd need something like an i7-3840qm or better to make a small difference and those aren't exactly cheap.

Easily upgradeable aren't words that usually goes with laptop in the same sentence. There are very few exceptions and the G75 isn't one of them so you can pretty much forget upgrading.

If Asus ever releases a G75 with the GTX670mx or GTX675mx, then it is possible that you could upgrade the GPU, but it will again be a very delicate upgrade and you will have to find a GPU made by Asus which will not be easy to come by.

tl;dr: You're pretty much SOL on the upgrades aside from RAM and HDD.

The G75 still packs a hell of a punch though, why do you want to upgrade by the way?

Everyone, even the guys with an i7-3770K and a GTX680 desktop get massive fps drops when in WvW so yeah that is normal.

That's always the trade off with laptops: portability at the expense of price/performance.

Is there any sites where people do trades? Could always try to trade it. It is brand new.
