    G46VW Full Review from notebookcheck

    Full Review finally from notebookcheck. They talked about how good the cooling is but the screen is really below average and has the same srgb/gamut coverage of the M14x R2 with only 45% color gamut or 62% SRGB coverage which is not even close to the G55/G75 displays where it close to covering the SRGB spectrum and around 65-70% color gamut. The contrast and black lvls are also not as good as the g55/g75.

    Thanks for the link! Notebookcheck does some of the best reviews that I have seen, focusing more on the testable technical rather than the fuzzy feelings.
    I am disturbed because I cannot break my system...found out there were others trying to cope! We have a support group on here, if your system will not break, please join!

    The M14x R2 ... also costs $500-$600 More ... which is No Small Point.

    Not to mention .. point after point the comparison is
    not Oranges to Oranges .. The G46 IS quite a Peach for $1000
    ... and makes me warm and 'fuzzy' (hehhehee).imho.c.

    Yes, and when ASUS puts a 900p display or better in the G46, there will be no comparison between the two. The ASUS has better cooling, better graphics, and possibly better battery life.

    Well resellers from what I've read, they will receive the G46 sometime Q2 of 2013. So I'm guessing around that time they should have the upgraded panels and more customize-ability. HIDEvolution only gets them because from my understanding they buy them from Best Buy. I'd wait if you can for the new 700M series GPU's and Haswell CPU's. The upgraded panel 1600x900 is something I look forward on getting in the future assuming everything is compatible

    I also heard than ASUS will include the new wifi so if they really wait for a major upgrade we can think than this new rev won't be out before june.
    If only i could wait :/

    The G46VW is alredy in sale from few salers as exemple:

    I think its perfect the way it is, under 1000.00$ price point is really the only way to go for me personally but what would make it even be better is if they could add some stuff and still keep the price under 1k like a 32 gigabyte mSATA and the 900p screen also a quad core i7 3630QM, that would make it a really super deal just like the Y400/Y500 from lenovo.

    I don't believe the Lenovo has the 900p screen. Also, the Lenovo doesn't have the GPU caliber that the ASUS does. Oh, and nobody has cool cooling like ASUS lol .

    Seriously, just slap in a SSD and you're in heaven! Unless you want to wait for the upgrades
