At this time Asus hasn't provided any pricing or ETA on this model. We're not even sure if Asus will be releasing this model to the US market. However, if Asus decides to release this model in the US, then Xotic PC will be offering it for purchase online at www.xoticpc.com

The word out is that it is going to cost $1699 in US dollars, and will have a North America release of early December. The official press release does not specify Early December, but a lot of "unofficial" sources are specifying early December and by the press release stating "soon", when it was released on 11-17-09, early December makes sense as a good approximation of "soon".

Comes from the end of this article ( http://usa.asus.com/News.aspx?N_ID=B2jtPxlgYZhRCiaG (http://usa.asus.com/News.aspx?N_ID=B2jtPxlgYZhRCiaG) ) which states
"Pricing and Availability
The ASUS G51J 3D notebook will be available in North America soon from Amazon.com, Newegg.com and other authorized resellers. The introductory MSRP is $1699.99 USD. For more information please visit our website (http://usa.asus.com/News.aspx?N_ID=B2jtPxlgYZhRCiaG). "

So a $200 price jump which is the exact price of the 3D vision kit from NVidia. This means they are not charging anything extra for the new screens 120Hz refresh rate, I suspect because its taking a resolution drop from 1920x1080 to 1366768 (which I assume will also be a progressive scan).

The rest of the specs should be the same as can be seen here
