They have 1600x900 display. Too bad it's a glossy display and they are overcharging for the customization.

The Illegear web site states these are glossy screens and not matt screens. $100 is nothing! It's 74 euros. I'd spend more on a meal for two in a restaurant!

I've ordered mine from HIDEvolution with the lower resolution 1378 panel, and shall upgrade it when HID have a 16x9 screen available.

Best Buy just added another ASUS G46 product to their list, but its not the newer resolution. The only difference I see is visually, the windows button, and the processor which is i5-3230m which is nearly the same as the i5-3210m in the previous version. That is all I see, here is the link to see for yourselves.
