Does it have only one fan?
It would really sadden me if it does.

Also,the man in this video says the release date is in the end of july or the beginning of august.yet there is no information from asus

I'm confused.

It would be two, but small ones like a Macbook Pro I assume.

Review of g551 and comparison with gx500

Come on we need more info on this laptop! I will be buying this as I think it genuinely represents the best value and best all-round gaming laptop in its class.

Looks great with the black and red these, the chassis is solid and not too thick or thin, storage options are acceptable when an optical caddy is used, has a good IPS, a great keboard for typing... and importantly it has an 860M.

Only real weaknesses are the sound (which sucks on all ASUS laptops unfortunately) and the weak battery, which I presume will be the same as in the G550.

Would really love this machine to be released in the next month or two!

Still no release date, but this was recently added to ASUS' website. http://www.asus.com/us/site/g-series/GL551/

Just one thing bothers me with that... GTX860M with GDDR3. Is this a bad joke or did I miss something?

I think it's just a misprint. As far as I can tell Nvidia doesn't make an GTX860M with GDDR3 ram.

Lookee!!

I really hope the Intel Core i7-4750HQ 2.5 GHz is a misprint and it will really be the 4710HQ

Also...no mention if WiFi card is AC - only states 802.11n

Great pricing though!

Please, can someone confirm if the GL551 does NOT have an IPS screen? The G550JK does and it's listed... I hope it's a typo!

Ok so I still want that notebook and I've been bothering my local pc shop with it for about a month. Notebooks should be in Slovakia on 11.9. and in the shop on 13.9. I also got the price of dm079h (model with 4GB GDDR5) down to 867. Now there's just one more thing troubling me, they're listing the panel as TFT in specifications.

http://www.kupujem.sk/zbozi.aspx?kod=&word=&zb=g551&x=0&y=0

They also told me that ASUS is constantly shifting release dates for suppliers but the ones i mentioned are the most recent ones. I'm definitely going to wait for it even if they lie again. I'm not settling for MSI that will melt or Lenovo who's more expensive models don't last very long either.

Somehow I doubt that you end everyone else saying the same thing are going to run out and buy an inferior laptop for the sake of waiting one more month.

Everything I have seen so far says it is IPS. If not it would be a bit of a PR disaster.

Asus ROG Nordic on fb regarding G551 Scandinavian release "early next year". Hahaa, good luck with that. Like there was no competition.

there's still not much info about releasing date and config, but.. it seems like Asus resigned from external subwoofer which give it nice sound quality, someone have information about that?

One user on Notebookreview confirmed NO IPS... http://forum.notebookreview.com/asus-gaming-notebook-forum/754260-asus-rog-g551-14.html#post9779335

It's value in hardware id is AUO36ED. It is the same as the y50 in spec, technically. But I liked this display more. Good colours and side-to-side viewing angles. Top-down viewing angles not so great. Its powerful though and there's only minimal heating on it under heavy gaming. I kind of like the keyboard, then again its personal opinion.
My major worry was the ugle bulge on the bottom right of the notebook, but it actually doesn't bother me one bit after I got it. I barely notice it. The sound is pretty average. I expected more. It has a decent battery life of about 4 hours ( Then again it's after a fresh charge , so i don't trust it )

All in all, I'm very happy with the notebook so far !

No IPS is an EPIC fail from ASUS, and they are going to lose a ton of customers as a result.

My GL551 has been delivered today...won't be able to try it out until tonight though.

I am almost relieved that the screen is not IPS. I had to return two MSI GS60 as the light bleed (or maura effect) was so distracting and dissapointing with its IPS screen.

Now...to only be able to find out what kind of WiFi card it has...

Yes there is an IPS option on one of the Full HD versions out there, but it might not be stocked in every region. You have to check the specs before you buy. See the PR for the full spec list.

Do you know what regions are getting the IPS screen? thanks

Well, In terms of appeareance I think it lost the "slim" impression its predecessor had making the curves on the sides(sorry, but I loved that from other one), I share the question if this has the dual fans also on the the side and if the bottom is still a aluminum plate or is now plastic (in the video the texture is not very clear), aside from that in terms of specs I remember that this one has a variant with the 860M that is an improvement, does this also will have the 4k resolution like the GX500?

Thanks.

This is not determined regionally. Each retail/etail store has the option to order it and stock it. They should even be able to push their ASUS sales rep to order some if it's not in our distribution hub.
