    The ASUS ROG G46VW finally brings genuine game-driving power to the compact and portable 14" segment. Endowed with every advantage offered by other ROG gaming notebooks, it embeds 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processors, discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M graphics, NVIDIA Optimus technology for long battery life, and extra-fast data transfers with Intel Thunderbolt. Advanced ROG engineering achieves unmitigated performance in a very transportable and light product. The G46VW keeps the powerful rear-venting dual-exhaust thermal design of fellow G Series notebooks, running cool and quiet. It offers gamers superior comfort and input ergonomics, maintaining renowned eye-catching G Series aesthetics. For customers who demand true mobility without having to forego performance gaming, the G46VW presents an ideal proposition.

    High-end mobile gaming performance
    The G46VW offers a much thinner and lighter form factor without sacrificing performance. As a true full-spec ROG gaming notebook, it includes 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processors and enthusiast-level NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M graphics with 2GB GDDR5 video memory. NVIDIA Optimus technology enables up to six hours of battery life, with instant on 2-second resume and up to 14-day standby, plus automatic file backups. SSD storage and Intel Thunderbolt technology enable faster system performance and data transfers, the latter working at up to 10Gbps. Sophisticated engineering and design make sure all of these fit perfectly in a compact and light portable form.

    Intelligent cooling keeps the action going
    Similar to its G Series stablemates, the G46VW features dual large rear-venting exhausts, with two fans to provide cool and stable performance. The design ensures greater reliability, pushing heat and noise away from gamers for more pleasant usage. Palm rests and keyboard remain cool to the touch, while the G46VW runs very quiet even under load.

    Exciting gamer-focused design and engineering
    The G46VW reflects the stealthy but aggressive look of other G Series notebooks. Motifs include sharp lines superimposed with soft-touch and damage-resistant materials, creating a low key but high impact product. For unique looks, it employs a backlit keyboard and an illuminated ROG logo, making it stand out in the dark. The keyboard uses a solid one-piece build, and the touchpad offers responsive gesture detection. In addition to high end gaming, the G46VW accommodates complete multimedia experiences with its premium wide-view anti-glare screen and powerful ASUS-exclusive SonicMaster audio.

    I would classify it as Enthusiast, unless you go boutique you will not be able to find better ones. (There are exceptions, like MSI's GT series)

    Its a very capable GPU. I've got one. For a laptop it is about the most power you can get for something that size. About on par with a 5770 desktop. Plus it is true Kepler. Next model up is a Fermi rehash.

    I wish when I got my laptop they had these shipping in the 14 inch machines. Most 14s were and still are only shipping with 640/650s. But I do wonder what the resolution is on this. I have come to really adore my 1080p res on my 15.6.

    This is will be competing with M14x really nice, hope we get a 1080p screen option. Oh and 660M is as good as it gets with a 14inch laptop seriously people how is this not enthusiast what would you need a GPU this powerful on a laptop if not for playing games. This chip will max out ALL games at 1600x900 some people are just clueless i guess. Are you one of those who thinks they need an an ivy bridge I7 for everything?

    1080p screen will likely be a given based on my g75 and the other g series laptops in the current generation having 1080p screens.

    Just saying 660m is a boss.
