The G75VW I bought is still my favorite layout off any laptop past or present. The keyboard isn't cramped and the space between the number pad is great.
But the real great feature of this laptop is the ability to clean the fans by just removing 2 screws and brushing them with a fine paint brush to get them squeaky clean. I suspect that has a lot to do with why it still runs so well.
The latest "plug-in radiator" is the most asinine thing I have ever seen for a laptop. Did they forget the purpose of a laptop is portability?
Sadly, if they continue creating laptops that make the fan impossible to clean, I will not be buying another.
At a minimum they should be thoroughly cleaned every 2 months. I am not tearing down a laptop to perform routine maintenance.
That is a deal-breaker for me.
MSI/Clevo/Eon all make it easy to clean the fans.
Heck they make everything accessible.
Even on my beloved 75VW changing the WIFI/Bluetooth card was painful, but I don't mind that. It is something you either shouldn't replace or replace once.
I really hope they go back to a design that is maintenance friendly, I really like the hardware and engineering thought that is put into them from a usability standpoint.
