ASUS Gaming Laptops

The next few months will see ASUS introduce a completely new line of laptops made just for avid game players, says the head of the US reseller ProPortable. A recent forum update from the company leader has revealed early information about the G1P and G2P series of portables. Both models are known to use extensive amounts of carbon fiber, which should reduce their weight without affecting their strength. ASUS has also highlighted the W, A, S, and D keys so frequently used for first-person shooters and has a glowing jewel below the trackpad. The G1P and G2P are primarily separated by color and size: the former is a 15.4-inch system dominated by black carbon fiber and green accents, while the 17-inch G2P adds silver elements and red accents. The colors may indicate the use of NVIDIA (green) or ATI (red) graphics chipsets.

Exact specifications aren't known at this time, but ProPortable suggests the laptops may not appear until Intel's Santa Rosa mainboard chipset appears in early 2007, which will raise the system bus speed to 800MHz and improve overall performance. A backpack, a Logitech-made gaming mouse, and a webcam will also be standard. Photos of both models are available after the jump.
