I currently have the asus g501jw with the 60wh battery and the 1tb hdd.
I was wondering if I could swap out the battery and the hdd for a larger 96wh battery?

Yes its possible but you will need to scratch out some plastic on the back of the hard disk section that is where the hard disk is placed in the smaller battery version. This is so that the 96whr battery seats correctly and does not cause a bulge on right part of the keyboard.

Why don't they just make a version with 1080p and large battery? 4k on a 15.6 inch screen is not really worth it.
And the quality of the 1080p screen is actually really really good.
