Asus has announced that the updated Sandy Bridge- based products will be released for shipping this week, immediately after the revised design is released by Intel. The company aims to prevent any further inconvenience and interruption to customers with this fast response. Asus will be rolling out revised G73SW, N53SV and N53SN models followed by N43SL, N43SN and N73SV in the notebook section. A previous customer can simply follow the swap procedure if they find that their models have been affected.
Asus has made it comfortable for customers planning to buy the new notebooks with Intel Sandy Bridge technology by clearly marking all packaging, including shipping cartons and gift boxes, to indicate the use of revised hardware. You just have to look for a sticker displaying “New Revision Certified Design”, either on the palm rest area or on the box itself.
