    Thank you Marshall. When might specs be available? And when might they ship? 13 months since GX500 announcement! I'm sure you'd rather be reading us talk about how awesome these machines are instead of answering "when, where, how much" questions.

    Specs release and media review date are tied to Nvidia NDA on upcoming 900 series GPU, which is currently ~March time. Shipping date should be around this time, although as usual some regions will follow others; US is usually first tier though Certainly in Q2 - we're testing tidying up an almost finished product internally now.

    My spec supposition:
    Intel® Core™ i7-4720HQ
    Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M

    I really like option to buy with FHD instead of UHD and I'm looking forward to see if this is really true:
    "It’s now the coolest and quietest thin and light gaming notebook on the market!"

    Upcoming 900 series? I thought i had seen laptops all over the place with 970s and 980s already. Been waiting for this laptop a while now.

    Soooooooo could you maybe just computer-whisper a price point? or could you confirm or deny secretly to any of my guesses: 1700, 1800, 2000? I'm just going to be gettin an asus super soon, but I'm trying to hold on for the G501 if it's not too expensive. It looks like a beast.

    I'm quite curious about how this small gaming laptop will perform. I don't want to ruin the image of it but considering that ASUS made such a bad job with the cooling on the G751 which is a freaking monster compared to this I do wonder how could they be serious about this thin laptop actually put up with hardware like the i7-4710 or even i7-4720 which will build even more heat.

    I don't quite believe this whole marketing thing because they did the same thing with the G751&G551 and look at them now. " This upgraded design delivers exceptional thermal efficiency to ensure system stability, keeping CPU and GPU temperatures low even under overclocking conditions." they said.. Yeah I could see that. It went to 90C in mid winter at 20C in the room with no OC -_-... (source: http://www.asus.com/News/jZ3tJOGRCTO4bdCS)

    So, if ASUS would really be able to make this tiny gaming laptop be cooler than the G751 then there is something very wrong with their engineering team. I like the whole idead of a small form factor gaming laptop, but look at MSI/Gigabyte/Schenker, they all have lightweight gaming laptops which have problems with high temps. I don't really have such high hopes from ASUS to break the ice with a much cooler lightweight gaming laptop.

    Sorry for my pessimism Marshall but I think you know even better how these things with product image works. Especially before they release a new product.

    The G751 cooling system is incredible. 90C is well within the thermal limits of the processor - and all heat is exhausted out of the back and there are no thermal issues from the bottom - I.E. you can actually put this laptop on your lap during intense gaming/etc.

    Name another laptop with similar specs that is better designed cooling-wise?
