ASUS is planning to release five Intel Sandy Bridge based laptops, including a 17.3" G73SW model for gamers with a $2,500 budget. This system will have Intel's Core i7-2630QM, 8GB DDR3 memory, GeForce GTX 460, Full HD resolution, USB 3.0 and dual-storage bays.
Also unveiled are four somewhat less gamer-oriented but still might fast models, grouped in the N53SV and N73SV series. All feature the same 2GHz processor and all have the new GeForce GT 540M processor that was recently seen rocking Acer's 5742G, which will drive either a 15.6-inch, 1366 x 768 display or the larger 17.3-inch, 1080p display depending on which model you go for. Prices on this series are said to start at just $1,200 and go way up from there when they ship in January.
