Four ASUS notebooks with Sandy Bridge chips out

A few new ASUS notebooks with Intel's Sandy Bridge processors have shown up on the web, thank to a pair of NotebookItalia reports. First off is the 17.3-inch G73SW, with a quad-core, 2GHz Intel Core i7-2630QM chip on the Sandy Bridge architecture. Alongside it is the smaller, 15.6-inch G53SW, equipped with the same processor and many of the same specs.

The G73SW, though, will get 8GB of DDR3 RAM, a 1920x1080 resolution, Wi-Fi, USB 3.0 ports and two storage drive bays. It will ship with a 500GB, 7,200RPM hybrid hard drive with a 4GB SSD. NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 460M will be onboard with 1.5GB of dedicated video memory, and a Blu-ray drive will be standard. This PC will cost between the equivalent of $2,510 to $2,700.

The G53SW will also get 8GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive with SSD hybrid graphics card and the GeForce GTX 460M with 1.5GB of RAM. The same Blu-Ray, webcam with microphone, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules are present as well. Both ship with Windows 7 Home Premium. A version with 6GB of RAM, a 640GB hard drive and a DVD burner will retail for $1,300. The TVs are expected to be officially unveiled at the CES show next week.

Also leaked were the ASUS 15.6-inch N53SV and 17.3-inch N73SV, both with the same Sandy Bridge Core i7 CPU. There will be three models of the N53SV, with the entry-level model priced at just shy of $1,200. Specs range from 4GB to 8GB of RAM, hard drives between 500GB and 640GB and either a DVD burner or Blu-ray drive. The top-range model has a 1920x1080 resolution display along with a TV tuner. A GeForce GT 540M with 1GB of RAM comes standard.

The larger N73SV has the same 1080p resolution and 6GB of RAM. It gets dual 640GB hard drives. It starts at $1,700. A six-cell, 4,400mAh battery is standard.

All of the notebooks are expected to arrive sometime in January and will most likely appear at a pre-CES event on January 4.
