    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.

    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 suspect, if the price of the NX500 is anything to go buy, that it'll be around that price range in UK pounds sterling I.e. US dollar price more than this...

    I'd say it will be around $2,400 upon release, if you compare it to its current competitors.

    Yeah I'm wondering about this too. Broadwell is pretty much the new standard for laptops. Combine it with the 900-series from Nvidia, and we'll have the perfect balance between power and battery-life.

    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!"
