There's no definitive information to go on, but considering all the factors I'd say the probability of him getting this stuff free from ASUS is something around 85%. Since there isn't any definitive information, anything regarding this has to be a guess/assumption/presumption/whatever-you-want-to-call-it, yes. I AM guessing, that's obvious by how I specifically stated that, so you pointing it out is meaningless, especially since you're guessing that I'm guessing when there is definitive proof that I am guessing. So now that we've covered that, can you tell me what purpose your post serves?

With the fast action and motion of some video games I'd probably be able to tell the difference between 80FPS and 120FPS, however I don't have a true 120Hz display so I wouldn't be able to test this.

1920x1080 is more than enough for sitting a reasonable distance away from a 27" screen.
1600x900 would be more than enough for a 13" screen.
Otherwise you're simply wasting the computational power required for the higher resolutions.
I barely missed the (relatively small...) 5 minute edit window, I meant to add this:

Anybody saying they can either has the screen 2 inches in front of their face or is lying through their teeth.
One of the most common patterns I see at work is people ordering really high resolution displays, then spending the next year or two leaning in and squinting to read text.
I used to be more diplomatic about it but these days not so much. I find 1920x1080 for a 23.8 or 1680x1050 for a 22 (both ~90 pixels/inch) just a *bit* too small (although all my displays fall into that range), so my first guess is that 1920x1080 on a 27" display (80 pixels/inch) might be OK. A 2560x1440 27" comes in at roughly 108 pixels/inch, which seems like it would make the text too small at default settings.
That said, I agree completely with the "because we can" sentiment, even though I always regret it when I make purchases based on it.

Yes, in that case it would be 60Hz per eye and make sense. That said, I pity the fool who buys into the fad.

Higher resolution is more useful for non-games because you can display more text or text using more pixels, more windows at same time, bigger part of high resolution images with 100% zoom etc.

Regarding the 120 Hz, I do have to say that 120 Hz is better than 60. It's a subtle difference but it's there. 120 Hz is probably overkill though, I'm guessing I wouldn't notice any difference between 90 Hz and 120 Hz.
I'm running it at 96 Hz most of the time. The difference between 60 and 96 is highly noticable even on the desktop when dragging windows around.
