Asus shows off the 15.4" G1S and the 17" G2S

Last week, Notebook Italia spilled the beans on the Santa Rosa-based Asus A7S, F3SV, F3SC, A8SC and W7S. Today, the Italian publication has leaked two new Santa Rosa gaming notebooks from Asus: the G1S and the G2S.

The Asus G1S is the smaller of the two notebooks measuring 12.8" x 11.2" x 1.7" and weighing in at 6.8 pounds with an 8-cell battery. The notebook features a 15.4" screen with a WSXGA+ (1680x1050) screen resolution. Powering the display is an NVIDIA GeForce 8600M graphics processor with 256MB of dedicated video memory. Processing power comes from a 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo T7500 processor while 2GB of 667MHz DDR2 memory is also included. Storage duties are handled by a 160GB 5400RPM SATA hard drive and a dual-layer SuperMulti DVD burner. Wireless functions are handled by a Bluetooth 2.0+EDR adapter and Intel's new Wireless Wi-Fi Link 4965AGN Draft-N network adapter.

The Asus G2S is the monster of the two weighing in at a lap-crushing 9.7 pounds and measuring 16.2" x 12.4" x 1.8".  The major hardware specs for the G2S mirror those of the G1S with two exceptions: the G2S features a 200GB SATA hard drive and a 17" display with a whopping WUXGA (1920x1200) screen resolution.

Pricing for the G1S is listed at 1700 EUR ($2,306 USD) while the G2S is listed at 1900 EUR ($2,577 USD). Both notebooks come pre-loaded with Windows Vista Home Premium and will begin shipping later this month.

they're like porsche....laziest desingers in the world. its an all new 911! honest!

they just updated the G1/G2 with santa rosa bits. some might not see a problem there, but for me while the specs and price are very tempting....the design is just awful, its really really gawdy. lime green/black, bright red/black.

i know they gots to save money somewhere but these are horrible looking machines.

notebook italia says it uses 2gb of DDR2 667Mhz

i thought SR was supposed to bring 800Mhz FSB. whats the point in a faster bus if the memory isnt going to be upto snuff
