    60Hz. Certainly not lower and there's not yet the display standard available to run higher bandwidth for higher refresh sorry.

    I don't think it is included sorry.

    Seems like G501JW-DS71 is the standard model with 16gb ram, larger battery and just 512gb pciex4
    What about the other models and their designations? Also, which models do or don't come with the thunderbolt port?
    I know this would be SUPER helpful, and we're slowly trying to change this but for all our generations to date we've never been able to collect this information sorry. The suffix's are all created by the individual stores/regions according to their desired specification. The only way to see is browse the product pages on each store.

Or will Asus skip this all together and just wait to refresh with Skylake (whenever that will happen, I'm guessing sometime in 2016 with Intels slow track records...)

    Thank you!
    No, I don't. For mobile Broadwell is currently only available as low-voltage dual core, not high performance. It's only suitable for performance:value products like GR6. Next generation will focus on Skylake much later this year, so G501 will be current product for a while.

    Great review! The G501 with only M.2 drive no HDD will have extra battery to last longer as well.
    We've noted the backlight PWM concern raised in the review and I've sent the info to our engineers to look at. I suspect it's not atypical of notebooks though given the backlight consumes a lot of power.

    That looks like a pre-order. same with XoticPC in USA with no release date though.

    Hopefully it won't take too long... but then again I was waiting for the NX500 and GX500 so this seems normal haha.

    "- Supplied Accessories: Gaming Carry bag + USB2.0 to RJ45 cable + mDP to VGA cable"

    So is this like a backpack like the one that came with the G75? I haven't been able to find any pictures.
    Also on board the "when is it really out" camp, but again, will be waiting to see when it at least comes with windows 10 pre-loaded.

    Thanks Marshall. 60hz is just great! the G60 ghost pro, Origin Evo15-s ship with Samsung 48hz panels.

    Will ASUS release a 970m version? This would make it an absolute beast and I would buy it instantly!!! I just think the 960m is just too low this gaming laptop. If they put 970m in it you would be king of the hill and out do the Razer blade and may others.

    Marshall, will there be an option to use the GPU as discrete graphics and turn off IGP? I'm really hoping you are allowing an option to turn off IGP and not funnel the discrete graphics through IGP to the display. I am not a gamer but I've been buying ASUS products because I wanted powerful mobile workstations but with this muxless implementations of Optimus it becomes a nightmare to work with multiple OSs.

    For those who don't have a priority on battery life it would be very nice to simply have an option to use the GPU to it's full potential. Lenovo made it happen with their previous models making them mux-ed and not muxless and a serious gaming laptop should have this option.

    Can you let us all know whether or not whether that's an option?


    Second question is related to this review.. the model this review is showing seems to have a spot for a 2.5" drive. Will this variant be available for purchase?
