If your waiting for the Lenovo just for the gtx 800 series, asus g750 xxxx has just been announced and will also be carrying the 880m. I'd go asus all the way.

Well, I don't know the exact specific model numbers but, asus: 765 about $1300, the 770 options around 1500, and 780 around 2200. Those options I say around as some have msata ssd or bluray and such. The 880m has just been announced. It wont make current models raise in price, and more than likely wont lower current prices either. Everyones best and most practical guesses are that the 880 will run around 2500-2700. Since its going to be the top notch graphics I'd personally say it'll more than likely come with 2x 256gb liteon msata ssd and 1tb 5400 hhd, run with no less than 16gb ram, and will include the bluray option.

As for release date, they just announced the laptop so I have no clue. They announced the asus nomad backpack almost a year ago. Said mid February that it would be available to the us. Well were in February and the backpack has finally started rolling out in the uk, with us release still up in the air. But I will say, laptop release vs a backpack im sure asus will be trying to pump this out as soon as they can. Im sure dell gigabyte msi and them will be doing the same, so the only way for asus to get a piece of the pie is to beat or at least release around the competitors.

Oh, also forgot to mention, the 780 model and more than likely the 880 model have the asus 1080p 120hz 3d displays.
