Hopefully someone here can answer my questions: I may be interested in buying an Asus G46, but the only place in the US I'm seeing them for sale is Best Buy. Is there currently anywhere else to buy them in the US, and will the 1600x900 models be released in the US soon or ever? Thanks in advance for any information.

hidevolution sells them. you can customize it the way you like. they even have the 1600x1900 screen. here is a link http://www.hidevolution.com/asus-g46vw-bsi5n06-2gb-nvidia-gtx-660m-14.html

Are those upgraded monitors the same ones ASUS uses? Or is it some other 900P screen?

Those are not original default hd+ 900p g46 versions on Hidevolution. What they do is they buy the g46 from best buy and then installs a 900p to replace the default 768p panels.

I am aware of that. I was wondering if the monitors 900P displays they use are the same one ASUS uses.

I would like to upgrade to a 900p screen but I'm not sure if its reliable or not.

It is likely the same as I have asked the same question that u ask to an Asus representative and he told me it is likely to be the same that is offered in HIDevolution. I hope that answers your question. :D

I'm not sure if anyone has done a tear down of the G46 to found out who makes the screens in the stock unit.


ASUS typically uses Chi-Mei, AuOptronics, Samsung and LG.


The screen HIDevolution sells is made by AuOptronics, so it's likely to be the same or better than the one found in the European G46 (Native 1600 x900 model)
