ASUS G1S and G2S Leak

ASUS will also join the series of PC makers with notebooks based on Santa Rosa, according to new leaks. The G1 and G2 gaming portables will be some of the first to get the faster Intel technology in the form of the G1S and G2S. Either system will have 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo processors and better storage, including 2GB of RAM. Intel's 802.11n wireless chipset will also be onboard.

Unlike the earlier models, however, the new PCs will be determined by size rather than their video chipsets. Both upgrades will use a 256MB GeForce Go 8600 for better game performance, with the main difference being the 15.4-inch, 1680x1050 display of the G1S and the 17-inch, 1920x1200 display of the G2S. The latter will also have slightly larger storage with its hard disk jumping from 160GB to 200GB.

The official debut for the gaming duo is set for May 21st. European pricing is set at 1700 Euros ($2,311) for the 15-inch PC and 1900 Euros ($2,583) for the launch in this area, though American prices should be lower than this for the anticipated launch in the region. [via Notebook Italia]
