It might has been a while since we heard about new laptops from ASUS Republic of Gamers but as it turns out, the team is bringing plenty of new models for Malaysian market this month. As revealed in ASUS Malaysia’s new May – June 2015 catalogue, one such laptop is the G501JW (shown above) which is a 15.6-inch slim and light gaming notebook.
With a maximum thickness of 21.3mm, the 2.06 kg G501JW gaming laptop also features aluminium chassis with a dark brushed metal finish and red outline which reflects the colour of ROG brand itself. The laptop is powered by an Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M GPU that are kept cool by the company’s improved Hyper Cool thermal technology which consisted of dual independent fans and cooper heat sinks.
In certain variations, the G501JW also comes with PCI Express solid state drive (SSD) which has better data speed than a common SATA-based SSD. Other than that, ASUS has included its Splendid Technology into G501JW that provides visual enhancements for its IPS display. The laptop also features backlit keyboard, and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower-tuned audio speakers.
For Malaysia, the G501JW comes in three different variations as shown below:
Moving on, ASUS Malaysia is also bringing over the G751JY for our market. Featuring a 17.3-inch full HD display, it is the beefiest model in the line-up and is powered by an Intel Core i7-4870HQ processor as well as NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M GPU. The graphics performance on G751JY apparently can be overclocked further using ASUS Turbomaster tech.
The G751JY also comes with 24GB worth of RAM alongside 1TB hard drive and 128GB solid state drive. To complete the package, the laptop comes standard with a Blu-Ray RW drive and a price tag of RM 8,499.
Last but not least in the list is the GL552JX which is the most affordable out of the five new ROG gaming laptops that are coming to Malaysia this month. Built with a 15.6-inch full HD display, this particular laptop also carries an Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 GPU with 2GB DDR3 as its graphics memory. Priced at RM 3,199, the laptop also features 4GB worth of system RAM and a 750GB 7200rpm hard drive.
According to our contacts in ASUS Malaysia, these new laptops are heading to retailers within this month but they might have arrived at certain stores. So, do get in touch with your favourite laptop retailers to check out the actual availability of these laptops at their outlets.
