    It looks like they are exactly the same. Buy the cheaper one.

    The BSI is better because it is $50 cheaper and has a faster i5 cpu by 100mhz.

    IIRC, one has a rounded adapter while the other one is more like a traditional brick.

    Fair point, but not noticeable in the performance department. The $50 is worth it, though. You can get some more RAM or a nice mouse for that.

    Double check the specs. I recall a member here having another wireless card to the standard Intel. The $950 model is the first gen with the lower spec i5 but it does come with the Intel wireless/Bluetooth card, can't say what the newer model comes with. Maybe another member can verify.

    The Asus G46VW-BSI5N06 is a better buy, because it comes with a slightly newer and faster i5-3230M processor. Sometimes the prices of the two models are the same, some times the faster model is even cheap (by $50 as you saw). Price seems to flucturate between $899 and $999, so I would wait and buy when it is $899.

    I have the newer Asus G46VW-BSI5N06 model and it has the Intel 2230 wireless bluetooth card.

    Just customize through HIDevolution. You can get a G46 with some crazy specs through them if you like.

    Thanks for the verification! I like the G46VW series so much I'm thinking of purchasing the BSI5N06 and keeping it as a standby/replacement while I use the BHI5N43 for the while. Just wish it came with Windows 8 Pro in one shot.
