ASUS X77 to hit mid range early next year

A discovery today has revealed that ASUS is close to releasing one of the first large notebooks based on new ATI and Intel hardware. A new variant of the 17.3-inch X77 should get a mobile Core i5, specifically the 2.26GHz Core i5-430M, and should be one of the first with a Mobility Radeon HD 5730 inside for its graphics. The combination of CPU and video should put the system at the mid-range in speed but significantly above the speed of many higher-end notebooks today.

Other features identified by Fudzilla pinpoint the system as a clear desktop replacement, including 1TB of total disk space spread across two drives, 4GB of RAM and a display with a native 1600x900 resolution and LED backlighting. Estimates put the system up for sale in mid-January with a price near 1,000 euros ($1,432).
