    Why not just wait? Read the reviews as they come out, read the forum posts, and educate yourself about this model laptop. Then you can make an informed purchase decision.

    Looks like @Zerflex has got one.... http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread...untry=&status=

    But you gotta ask yourself "Am I going to college to learn or play games?"

    If you're going there to learn, get yourself an Ultrabook laptop for the best combination of power, portability, and battery life - along with a 24-32" monitor or LCD TV for dorm or home.

    He is correct, engineering software takes a ton of power. PC-World (back when they were transitioning into Mac-World ) said that college students who were going into engineering or design/architecture should buy gaming laptops, as those programs are as resource-intensive as any games. That being said, high-quality business notebooks (Tecras, Thinkpads, etc) could also work, but they are often more expensive for similar hardware, but usually have better battery life. I own a G53SX and run engineering programs on it, and the GPU makes a huge difference when it comes to CAD. Besides, the lab computers that colleges usually have are pretty pathetic, so a G55 will out-run them easily. For engineering, an ultrabook just woll not cut it. They skimp on the RAM, and even the best processors in the Zenbook 13 is about 1/5-1/4 the power of the G55 at best.

    If it is for engineering purpose then I would advice you to get the G55..... if you're not in a hurry for a new notebook, then I would wait and see what the future reviews of the notebook says.

    But why wont you go for the G75? Too big/heavy ?
