Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the Model: G46VW-BSI5N06 better than the

Model: G46VW-BHI5N43? I ask because at best buy the BSI5N06 is 900 while the other model is 950

It looks like they are exactly the same. Buy the cheaper one.

The BSI is better because it is $50 cheaper and has a faster i5 cpu by 100mhz.

IIRC, one has a rounded adapter while the other one is more like a traditional brick. :)

Fair point, but not noticeable in the performance department. The $50 is worth it, though. You can get some more RAM or a nice mouse for that.

Double check the specs. I recall a member here having another wireless card to the standard Intel. The $950 model is the first gen with the lower spec i5 but it does come with the Intel wireless/Bluetooth card, can't say what the newer model comes with. Maybe another member can verify. :)

The Asus G46VW-BSI5N06 is a better buy, because it comes with a slightly newer and faster i5-3230M processor. Sometimes the prices of the two models are the same, some times the faster model is even cheap (by $50 as you saw). Price seems to flucturate between $899 and $999, so I would wait and buy when it is $899.

I have the newer Asus G46VW-BSI5N06 model and it has the Intel 2230 wireless bluetooth card.

Just customize through HIDevolution. You can get a G46 with some crazy specs through them if you like.

Thanks for the verification! I like the G46VW series so much I'm thinking of purchasing the BSI5N06 and keeping it as a standby/replacement while I use the BHI5N43 for the while. Just wish it came with Windows 8 Pro in one shot.
