When comparing the ASUS ROG G752VS models, I'm coming up lost. Both computers seem to be identically equipped, but it's impossible to isolate any information on either of the computers, especially when looking for release dates or differences when comparing the two.

Both computers include:
17.3" Full-High Definition
Intel Core i7-6700HQ
32GB RAM
256GB SSD + 1TB HDD
Nvidia GTX 1070 8G
BluRay Reader
Windows 10
1-year Warranty
etc...

However I cannot find the difference in HDD rpm speed, with ASUS stating here that the speed on the 1TB ranges from 5400rpm to 7200rpm, as well as here mentioning Intel® HD graphics 530 despite reviews canning the 106T for not including graphics switching.

This is all despite the price difference of $2699 for the 106T and $3099 for the 107T...

This has all stemmed from a damaged 106T getting replaced with a 107T by CentreCom in Australia, and being unable to find anyone able to tell me the difference between the two.

Any assistance would be grateful.

I don't know differences but i know that these prices are totally non-sense imo

this msi gt73vr is a really good laptop and it costs only 1949$. it has an i7-6820hk OC CPU and a mxm gtx1070 and is better that those asus.

Sorry, you must have missed the part about "CentreCom in Australia". Comparing prices to american retail price is the only thing that's non-sense unfortunately. It's no secret australia pays more for technology, despite being early adopters. Not to mention the australian dollar being weaker than the american dollar. However we do get paid more because of the higher cost of living. So your MSI GT73VR is actually more like $4000. Actually: $4999

Fortunately cost isn't related to the difference in these computers, except for the price difference between them, it sucks there isn't an apparent difference...

Yeah that laptop's SKU is G752VS-GC086T, so it makes sense that it's got the lower specs. I didn't realise it had been delisted. Maybe that's why they can't replace same for same. Here is the same laptop from Computer Alliance, another Australian store.

I think there's no difference, but why then have different SKU's?

I just found the 107T here, and they mention having a 1TB HDD at 7200RPM. So far the only verified difference. The 106T had a 1TB HDD at 5400RPM, which I know because I opened the laptop and looked at it when it first started playing up.
