Best way to futureproof our notebooks?

Since the release of the G750 I have been feeling quite insignificant, considering the G750 seems to be a much better laptop. Now, that isn't bad, because that means progress is being made, but how can I/we prevent our current laptops from becoming overwhelmed in the future? What do you do to keep your unit running quickly and smoothly? And how can I get mine running at its highest potential?

since Asus have these lovely proprietary GPU's on G75VW and I can't even find a single Asus' proprietary 670MX on Ebay..
I am pretty bummed out about it 😛

Yeah you are out of luck with g75 as there are no place for standard MXM 3.0b gpu's there. And asus proprietary gpu's are overpriced if possible to find them at all.

but my way of futureproofing the laptop is.
keeping the dust out.
repaste for better temperatures.
a decent Wireless Card
some decent RAM

upgrade the GPU to a 670MX if you can find one..
upgrade the CPU to a 3720QM or more 🙂
and the best way to upgrade a PC getting an SSD! seriously even a old ass core2dou laptop will feel speedy as fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

If you only did know how much time I spent to get this mod possible. Many times I was on edge of sanity sitting and looking in garbage of hex code called video bios in editor trying to understand why damn thing wasnt working. It was like matrix code but worse as you dont see even outlines lol.
