ASUS has two different lines of notebooks, they have their pre configured notebooks ( W3,W5, V6 ) which are way overpriced, and then they have their " Built on ASUS " notebook line, which are barebones that are configurable.
We have yet to receive any info about the new M5N and M6N in the 915 chipset. ASUS told us yesterday that these wouldnt be released until April/ May, and they have no info to release on these new models as of yet ( disturbing )
Also, we found out yesterday from ASUS, that there will be an initial release of the Z71V ( we are due to receive our shipment mid March ) but, the following shipment will be delayed because of shortages of the WSXGA LCD's. No time frame for the delay was given.
Despite my excitement for the new Z71V notebook, I am still a loyal fan of the M6NE notebook. I am anxious to review the specs for the M6NE replacement when its released. I have a conference call today with ASUS N.A to go over the specs, when I receive them I will make sure to Post them.
