Hi there, sorry for the delay.
Yes the laptop can be couriered to jhb, if there's going to be any problems with having someone there to receive delivery then i can specify a delivery time when i create the waybill. The laptop is fully covered under Asus's collect and deliver warranty, i will supply their warranty support number with the laptop.
Cheers

The best I could do is R14 250. My margins are already razor thin and with the exchange rate depreciating the way it is my replacement cost has escalated.
I have changed the price so if you are interested then I would advise making the EFT through BoB so that payment can reflect immediately and I will then get the couriers to collect on Monday morning. Cheers

hi, can you get me the requested system ? thanx - Asked by RoodeJ (739 Rating score between 500 and 999)

A:
Hi there
To answer your questions;
1)The maximum RAM supported is 16Gb
2)The main differences between the G75VW and G73SW are; The G75VW has a slightly newer and better Processor, Graphics card, Shape and incl’s 4xusb3.0 ports as opposed to 1xUsb3.0 port by the G73SW. Otherwise the screen, hard-drive, ram, blu-ray, integrated functions etc are very similar.
3)Unfortunately I don’t have stock of the G75VW, I should be getting stock in December. There are a number of different versions of the G75VW, so one with the same features as the G73SW-A1, as in blu-ray, HD screen, hybrid SSD hard-drive and backpack and mouse, will retail in the region of around R18k – R19k, although difficult to say given the volatile exchange rate.
Thanx
