[Deal is dead, item is out of stock] Asus G75VW 3rd Gen i7 17.3" 8GB Laptop $750 at Best Buy

I have been looking for a deal on this gaming laptop for a looong time.

asus_g75vw_090

After California sales tax and a $3 recycling fee, the total I paid was $812.99

Best Buy sales link:  https://clearance.bestbuy.com/detail/asus-17-3-laptop-8gb-memory-1tb-hard-drive-black/3003


Here are some links that declare this to be a pretty good deal:

Wow, 4.4 kg! Do you carry your gaming laptop around much?

Just looking at the keyboard and size of this thing, seeing 4.4kg mentioned, it’s a bog NO NO to buy such thing.

LOL, under full load it overheats so much the CPU actually enters safe mode and throttles itself down to 1.2GHz to prevent burning out. That’s a big problem right there. The chips don’t do that without a damn good overheat reason.
