    I just looked at the UX501 specs. How exactly is it different than the G501? Unless it's going to have a different GPU, it looks pretty much the same as the G501.

    Hah, George R. R. Martin fans don't know half of it, Patrick Rothfuss is much worse. ;-)

    It appears to also have a wonderfully small num pad jammed in there just to disappoint those of us who were waiting for the original GX500 AND got our hopes up since the UX isn't part of the ROG series and therefore the chances of finally getting a non-num pad machine were higher...

    My search for a 15 non-num pad machine with >1080p display -

    1. Asus GX500
    2. Asus GX501
    3. Asus UX501
    4....................

    The specs will be the same or the UX501 will have a 950M and the G501 will have a 960M.
    Apart from that the difference is the color.

    Since this will be a gaming computer, I really hope they'll find a way to put a 970m in there without frying our laps. I don't think a high price point for such a laptop would make sense if it had anything less than a 970m.

    If i'm reading the specs for the ux501 i don't think it has nvidia anything.

    i'm waiting to see if the g501 is going to be a good replacement for my g75vw (with upgraded memory and a samsung ssd).
    it's getting a bit... old... to lug around this laptop and not have the battery to take notes in college without being attached to the wall.
    i'm hoping with the g501 i can get the best of both worlds, smaller lighter form, slight improvements on all fronts spec wise, and a longer battery life.

    I believe they are referring to the asus' latest addition, zenbook pro ux501, which colour wise is nothing like the ux501

    Not going to happen.

    Razer put a 970m in their 14" model, so it isn't impossible. I am waiting for the specs before I make a final decision on what I am going to upgrading to. If the Asus G501 ends up with a GPU that will meet my needs, I may go with it. If not, then I will have to look elsewhere. I am not going to write off a product until I at least know what the specs are.

    Anyway, the longshoremen strike is over on the Pacific coast (at least for now, they need to vote on the contract still), so we might even see these getting in to the North American market in the next month or so.
