ASUS G50 / G71 laptops and ARES CG6155 gaming PC on store shelves

10 22 08 asus ASUS G50 / G71 laptops and ARES CG6155 gaming PC on store shelves

These machines made our radar a while back but with all of this election year excitement we plum forget about ’em. Well, here they are. Ready to be scooped up by the adoring public. The laptops are going for approximately $1,249.99. The gaming PC, however, still remains to be priced. Kind of odd considering they are heading to retail shelves as we speak. is ASUS planning an "honor system" with gaming PC? Pay how much you think it’s worth? That actually might be a good gambit. I’d always feel guilty and torn when teachers would ask me to grade my own performance. I always marked myself lower than I probably deserved. Are they counting on that to nab $3,000+ for each PC? More as it develops.
