I called Justin at Proportable because I needed some info on Asus products (since i love them so much) and he has some interesting news that i thought i might share with you all....This is coming from memory so i am sorry if i miss details or something like that.
- 1st....The W1 will probably never get the tv tuner kit in the US. The US office isn't happy with how it works.
2nd.....The price for the W1 is $2,399.. set by Asus so EVERYONE has to sell it for the exact same price that was established.
3rd.....The W1 isn't getting anything new at all.. period.. end of story.
4th.....There is a lower end system coming out... but the M5/M6/W1 are going to be the high end and untouched through the end of the year.
5th....The L5 (p4 based system) will get a video upgrade.... it's 128mb ati 9600 now will be a 128mb 9700.... They will be avail. in August.
6th....Basically nothing new for the rest of the year because of waiting for alviso. Which will prob miss it's January target release period.
7th....For those of you looking for custom W1's don't get your hopes up. Because and customized W1 that you purchase voids its warranty and that is the asus global warrranty.
8th.....Asus will NOT warranty anything through the end user
