    A rebranded-repainted ASUS N56JR with an old GPU?!? Is it for real? April Fools' Day hoax??? ROG's buyers are gamers and professionals, which means you can put this thing on the "worst product flops of 2014" list. However,looking at the bright side, Alienware, MSI, Clevo, Razer, Gigabyte,... will sell more notebooks. Who runs ROG department? Mickey Mouse?

    There probably isn't a "real" problem with it. I'm guessing most people (and me) were expecting a lot more, such as a refreshed G46. Considering the potential a refresh of that model would have with a GTX 860m in it, its worth anticipating. Then this rebadge showed up.

    I could be wrong and Asus does have a refresh on their plans seeing as how this model above is not a U.S. release. Hopefully this is the case...

    As sattelitekid said above, it seems to get the job done well.

    Let me introduce the MSI GS60 2PC Ghost:
    - 15.6” FHD or WQHD+ (2880 x 1620)
    - dual fan thermal cooling (it seems they are starting to understand...)
    - GeForce GTX 860M
    - Super RAID (over 900MB/s)
    - 802.11ac
    - 1.96 kg with battery

    and now the "amazing" G56JR:
    - 15.6" HD (1366 x 768) or FHD
    - GeForce GTX 760M
    - 802.11 b/g/n
    - 2.7 kg with battery

    Next question ?

    they could atleast updated the gpu with maxwell.. It's available for pre-orders in singapore already. WIth the new MSI coming out aswell with lower price and better specs they'll have a hard time selling this laptop.

    edit: here's the link of the release
