    I would say 2.2k for the FHD version and 2.5K for the 4K version. Correct me if I'm wrong Asus.

    Close! According to PCWorld and others it will be $2.000,- (Source: PCWorld, Tomshardware, Engadget).

    --Edit--
    In the Netherlands the laptop will be €1.900,-... let's hope that is incl. 21% VAT. (Source: http://tweakers.net/nieuws/101901/as...m-en-960m.html)

    Anandtech has a set of specs for it: http://www.anandtech.com/show/9080/a...gaming-laptops
    Graphics is the GTX 960M with 4GB of DDR5. So, first generation of Maxwell for the GPU with a little clock bump for the GTX 860M. Oh well, not really even close to being able to properly render games at reasonable settings at the display's native resolution.

    Is there a touchscreen option for the G501? Initial reports indicated that there would be touch and non-touch options, but non of the recent reports mention a touchscreen. Actually, I saw one that said that there was no touch option. If that's the case, I'm much more interested in the UX501, or even the NX500 as there seems to be no news about the UX501.

    I think the marketing mistake here is them calling this a 'gaming laptop'. Without a doubt, this is the nicest ultrabook on the market today but it is geared more towards the working professional than the gaming market.

    I will agree with you. It´s a really beauty laptop and it have some gaming power but its more a multimedia laptop.

    Do they have the same cooling? Same weight and size?

    They have the same battery size but does that equate to the same battery life (6+ hours)?

    Seconded. Would like to know the exact differences when it comes down to picking one.

    You can play DOTA 2 at 4K at Medium settings Are you going to tell 800k people they aren't PC gamers? It's a PC exclusive and by far the most popular game on Steam. Same as Minecraft gamers- predominantly PC, and huge YouTube community there. Civ 5 looks nice too.

    It's not for FPS gamers, but RTS/MOBA/MMO is a huge portion of the Steam most played list and this will be great for those games. Running it at Full HD is also fine because the pixels are so small they equal the same size as those on the Full HD panel, so the scaling effect is identical. So, run games at Full HD then benefit from 4K for productivity. After all as PCGMR we have the benefit of choosing our res, not like the console peons And yes, it's "pseudo-professional/semi-workstation", but any premium gaming-centric products falls under ROG for us.

    There's no touchscreen option.

    There's currently not much internal differences between UX and G, externally they differ. Prices should be same for same spec. The have the same battery and battery life when picked with identical specs. Obviously if you change a HDD or SSD or spec 8G or 16G this will give slight changes in battery life.
