    Asus ROG nordic just posted pictures of the insides of the g501. Looks like it has a HDD/ssd?

    Cool I hadn't heard about that. Just looked into it and it appears it is a leaked driver: http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/1...-mobile-g-sync

    But the updated release driver could still be what they are waiting for to release the G501.

    I've been shadowing the forum for the GX500/G501 release info for a few months now. I'm guessing there won't be any important updates til the March xxth nVidia announcement?

    Does this mean that the gx500 is abandoned?
    Also, the gx500's keyboard looks cleaner, why is there a need for the num pad in the g501? :S (I think most people don't use the num pad much while gaming anyway)

    Yes the gx500 is abandonned. As for the keyboard, I can remember people were complaining about the lack of numpad on the GX500... Can't make everyone happy I guess

    I agree it's a bit disappointing to wait half a year for a product to find out it will never be coming out....

    and the KICKER...

    The updated model is significantly different. I had been searching for a non-num pad centered keypad/trackpad in a 14"-15.6" with a decent GPU in it, and was impressed by the GX500 with it's lack of crazy lighting or racing stripes and lack of a scrunched num pad, but decent gaming specs and a lightweight design.

    I suppose i'm a bit disappointed because had i known the GX500 would turn into a num pad machine i would have purchased the Razer Blade, a rMBP, or the NX500.


    So now that i know the product i was waiting for has an added number pad and thus off-centered keyboard/trackpad, is there any other laptop i should be considering?

    This WAS my consideration list:

    1. Asus ROG GX500
    2. Razer Blade (14" 970m gpu)
    3. Apple rMBP (15" 860m)
    4. Asus NX500 (15" gtx 850m)

    Models with HDD have standard battery. Models with PCIE SSD only have extra battery.

    It's alpha actually; a lot of features are missing. Mobile G-Sync is many months away from release.

    By name, yes, by technology - no, it's the G501, which, yes, now has a number pad.

    But there are already so many laptops with num pads. The only ones I know without the num pad is the 13" zen book models which quite frankly lacks in power due to the ultra low voltage cpu. And asus recently announced the zenbook pro ux501, which has similar characteristics to the gx500. But.. Has a num pad as well which pains me

    Heh. Ikr. The off-center trackpad just bugs me. I guess its going to be another long waiting game ):
