    Of course two fans are better. Most notebooks with a good dual fan design seem to run a bit smooth and are not loud as hell.

    Better for cooling - certainly. Better for noise signature - not certain.

    Only time will tell, or hopefully some reviews.

    Think about it. One fan would have to spin 2x the speed to make up for not having the speed of two. Thus more noise is created. I would say at least.

    Doesn't work like that. A good magnetically suspended fan can move more than enough air to vent the fairly modest amount of heat a laptop will produce. And one radiator (the fan only blows on the radiator, not the rest of the assembly) will work just fine with a quality heat-pipe and a good block that transfers out the heat at the low temps a laptop assembly requires.

    And Asus' hardware engineers know what they're doing, in spite of their software guys being utterly talentless.

    Yeah that is true. I'm not saying it won't be great. It might. But I just like a two fan design it seems cool lol.

    Let's just hope Asus does not skimp on design though.

    Most of the time a two fan design is better, usually because notebooks tend to have undersized radiators, thus forcing very high fan speeds under load. The only real downside of a two fan design is the space requirement.

    In my opinion the N551 will be an inferior product to the N550 as far as the chassis is concerned. It should also be cheaper though.

    The n551 won't be any better than the n550. It will still feature a gtx 850m (and a 860m option) and probably a i7 4710HQ. No real upgrades.

    Any word on availability? The GL-551 is already selling on Amazon.

    Supposedly the GL551 has a TN screen not IPS, so if the N551 is the same I have no interest in it.

    Same here. I swear, if it doesn't get IPS, it will be the N550JK for me. Besides, I like the chassis much more than this new design.
