Amazon says this to have RTX 2060 MAX-Q but I don't think that's correct as that is reserved for G14 series. Asus Website also has no mention for Max-Q/

Seems to be a really good price for new device. If the promise of 4800H > 9750h and with the weight and large battery capacity it's going to be tough for Intel to keep their market share in the mobile processors industry.

4800H is good amount of faster than 9750H and especially in Multi threaded benchmarks for having two more cores and 4 extra threads. Also, 4800H lower heat and power consumption in load.
Ryzen 7 4800H actually competes against Intel's 8 Core i9-9980H processor and even beats it in Multi-threaded benchmarks in almost every cases in most of the leaked benchmarks and generates lot less heat and consumes a lot lesser power. i9-9980H never reaches its full performance even in the big chassis like Alienware m15 and m17 series and in Thin & light Laptops like XPS 15, Gigabyte Aero 15, Thinkpad X1 Extreme Gen 2, it literally performs 30% lower due to huge throttling.

Anyone know when the G14 will go on sale? I want one badly, but likely without the LED case.

Yes, you should cancel that order because this one is better. I won't say that you have to order this TUF model right now as you can wait a bit for some real reviews. But no need to order that Y540 right now. That price in B&H is static for last couple of months and won't increase now.

I thought it would be October before these would ship... Guess I'm wrong. I just don't see a big market for laptops over $1k right now...
There's a huge demand for all laptops right now as millions of people have started working from home. That's why prices in some instances are going up.

Thank you for the quick response. I am going to cancel the Y540 and go with this now. I will be the one to do a real review for myself!

You first need to understand that the model you're looking at, is the top of the line model with Ryzen 7-4800H 8 Core CPU which even beats Intel Core i9-9980H. If you look for a i9-9980H with 16GB of Ram, 1TB SSD and a 144 Hz Panel, you will be looking at nearly $1800 price and compared to that, this is pretty cheap.
The cheap models will be coming with Ryzen 7 4600H 6C/12T processor which is a direct competitor of i7-9750H and those will be cheaper. They are just not released in USA.
