Why?? I have Windows 7 Ultimate for my new build and everything worked correctly. Wanting to eventually go to W 8.2 when all the hardware manufactures catch up. Not sure when that moment will be - your post makes me add a few more months to the wait.

it's been 4 months since the release of Windows 8.1 has been released and almost 6 months since it has reached RTM and the morons at the ASUS drivers team still haven't updated the drive list for the G750JX page

horrible clowns working at ASUS

well the short and skinny answer to your question is that the majority of people on this planet are idiots. lol when i was a teenager i use to have this grand assumption that all people given the right chance and proper educational upbringing and social enculturation would do just as well as me and or anyone else. every single day that idea is challenged by morons of every shape and size whittling away at my youthfull naivety. what a stupid assumption lol

It isn't a stupid assumption balundab, you are correct. But, it isn't that the people are morons, it is that they are allowing a moronic light to shine through them unabated by truth and reality.

You are forgetting about malevolent influences from mistakenly trusted sources - sources that take away truth and replace it with fantasy and confusion.

To the untrained mind it isn't easy to identify these influences, as they usually come from what they are led to accept as the most trusted in their local experience. It is the bald-faced lie, to deny good and be evil while putting on the face of good.

Gullibility is the hardest thing to get right. You need it to learn, but you have to filter anything coming in through such that you know it's important vectors - truth, source, motivation, and value - and what you are being asked to trade for it.

You are also right about the light of morons shining through from everywhere.

But, the people aren't morons, what has taken over their souls is the moron - being allowed to shine through the persons' inattentiveness to their lives - having given it over to nonsense instead of pursing truth.

To help those people, help those people replace their ill accepted assumptions with truth and reality. The truth will replace their fear, doubt, and faith - with something tangible - every little bit helps bring them back to themselves - and shutdown the moron shining through.

Don't regret at all going for win 7 after reading these posts :).
4th day in company of this new G750JW....for the mother of all wonders: how did life even exist before glowing keys??? I don't look at the keys while typing- thanks to a lot of chatting in my youth, but just knowing they are glowing down there makes me happy.
Love this machine, works great on win7 though we had a bumpy start with some fn keys which gave me a serious headache.
I'm running max 2012 on it and other graphic software and few games- some lagging in Assassin's Creed, but nothing i couldn't fix after looking into d3dcomplier.
I'll probably switch to Win 8 or 8.1 in few months, when there drivers are updated and pretty much all solutions to yet unknown win8 problems are fixed.
