Asus has released a new ROG (republic of gamers) notebook dedicated to the, duh, gamers. Unlike other ROG notebooks, the new G46VW is quite portable as it packs ‘mere’ 14 inch screen instead of monstrous 17.3 or 18.4 inch displays (Example: Asus G74sx xn1). Measuring 348 x 261 x 22mm, it weighs a modest 2.5 kilograms with its 6 cell battery, which makes it ideal for LAN gaming. Specs include Intel Core i5 3210m processor (optional Core i7 3610QM 2.3GHz processor), 14 inch screen, 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, 500/750GB HDD (optional addition of 128GB SSD), super DVD/blu-ray, 3x USB 3.0 ports, 2 headphone jack, microphone, VGA, HDMI, mini displayport, LAN, memory card reader, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, Sonic master audio system and one thunderbolt port.
Asus G46VW comes with dual fan cooling system to keep this extreme gaming notebook’s temperatures down. The keyboard is backlit and has isolated keys like other Asus ROG notebooks. It comes pre-loaded with Windows 8. There is no information on its price and release date.
