ASUS G1S Preorders
Following its introduction earlier this month, the ASUS G1S is receiving its first definitive model, thanks to a new preorder site from ExcaliberPC. The G1S-A1 will be one of ASUS' fastest versions with a higher-end 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of RAM, and 160GB of hard disk storage. All the standard features of the 15.4-inch portable will also help its gaming role, including a 256MB GeForce 8600M GT, 802.11n wireless, and HDMI output for those who link the system to an HDTV.
Excaliber doesn't list when the A1 version will become available through its online store, currently listing the computer only for a generic pre-order at a price of $1,949. The system ships preloaded with Vista Home Premium as well as ASUS' signature bundled gaming mouse and backpack combo. [via Laptoping]
