ASUS ROG G501 is already on the market and its price is lower than we expected (not so much, though)
The long-awaited ASUS ROG G501 is finally on the market, although at this point it can only be pre-ordered. Our information is that the units are already shipped so we could expect the model maybe even earlier that the stated date of March 31.
This is the moment when we could thank our insiders, thanks to whom we managed to reveal the specs to our audience one month ago.
In case you haven’t heard anything about G501 yet, it’s an ultra-thin gaming laptop, which is advertised as the “Coolest & Quietest” one on the market. It features two high-quality Sunnon fans with independent fan control for the GeForce GTX 960M GPU and the Intel Core i7-4720HQ CPU.
If you’re still not impressed, keep in mind that besides the twin fans and the powerful GPU and CPU, the slim body of ROG G501 also features 2.5” HDD slot, PCI-Express x4 M.2 SSD, two RAM slots and 4K IPS or Full HD display.
ASUS ROG G501 weights 2.27 kg (5.00 lbs) and its exact dimensions are 383 mm x 255 mm x 20.6 – 21.3 mm.
The price of the configuration which is available for pre-order is 1176 EUR, which gets you Core i7-4720HQ, 12GB of RAM, GeForce GTX 960M, 1TB HDD and a UHD 4K IPS display.
