    Seems to be official: In Germany there will be

    - no Thunderbolt
    - no 96whrs battery
    - no PCIe m.2 SSD
    - no UX501 with touch

    The 96whrs battery would have been my main reason to buy either G501 or UX501. Now you can keep both, Asus.

    My only constructive remark is if ASUS can consider using GTX970M in future thin models. GTX960M with this price just doesn't cut it. I already move on to get myself a MSI GS60 Ghost Pro instead, (GTX970M, FHD) for less (Ok there is still tax involved but overall it is worth to get a GTX970M one)
    In fact the lack of info for Canada release is the main reason to drive me away from getting a G501. Sorry ASUS.

    Everyone needs to let this whole 960 vs 970 argument go, I'm sure the design team comprehensibly tested a 970 in the 501 and decided for whatever reason it didn't work. Yes the blade has a 970, but it also has well documented overheating problems, probably the same reason ASUS opted for a 960, at this price I'd rather longevity over increased gaming performance.

    I doubt ASUS will put a higher powered GPU of this generation in this current chassis as it would require a totally overhauled cooling system . . .

    If we were to talk saught after configurations, a DS-71 with a FHD screen is one to look for, great SSD and the full sized battery.
