good for higher end needs Posted by: from: on I do a lot of CAD work, 3D modeling, photo editing; basically work that requires more processing power than the average user is going to use. This notebook has held up quite nicely. Not as good as my desktop, but I spent over $5k on my desktop for professional grade equipment. But when I'm traveling, this machine does a great job of letting me get basic stuff done on the fly. I'm not a gamer, and therefore have no idea how it stands up in that arena, but for CAD and 3D, it can hold it's own. The only downside is it's a little heavier than I would like, but by no means nothing that can't be dealt with by anyone.

Almost perfect... Posted by: from: on This is far closer to a 4.5 than a 4 in my opinion, but there is one major caveat. First of all, I have the GL551 from last year and while I love that laptop, I didn't get the IPS screen. Big mistake for a graphic designer who does a lot of color dependent work. So, I bought this computer, which has the IPS screen and it's great...ish. Back-light bleed was a major concern for me and initially I didn't see any. Phew. Then, I closed and opened the computer a few times and the cover of the computer (the metal cover) is sorta flimsy over the screen, so the screen can sorta bend if you're not careful (and sometimes even if you are). Grabbing the screen by the bezel is strictly a no-no as it will create back-light bleed issues. It's the only disappointing part of a truly excellent computer. But for me, it's sort of a big deal. Be aware. Minus this one significant factor, it's a very, very nice laptop.

Asus ROG 15.6" Laptop is PERFECT! Posted by: from: on I shopped around looking for a 15" laptop with both 1TB Hard Drive and a Solid State Drive. Found the perfect one - Asus ROG at Best Buy. Super fast start up and loading, great graphics, perfect for gaming yet totally handles the demands of my work projects... its the best of both worlds.

Great laptop Posted by: from: on I went through 3 laptops within a week trying to find one that worked. All three had something wrong with them. I found this beauty on the website, and gave it a shot. It started up in seconds and it surprisingly had minimal glare on the screen. It crashed once from the two graphics card, but I optimized the nivida graphics card and disabled the Intel graphics card and everything worked great afterwards. The ssd really helps with bulky games. its definitely worth the price though. Other laptops with specs like this can cost $200 more, at that point, it's just the brand you're paying for. I would reccomend keeping the backlit keyboard on because the letters can become somewhat hard to see. Also buy a usb mouse because the mousepad is garbage. If you know how to fix the graphics card issue and buy a mouse get this laptop because it's a good laptop it just has a few kinks that can be fixed very easily. This laptop is perfect for gamers, I can't to play more with it.

Excellent Power For the Price Posted by: from: on I am very happy with this machine - lightning fast, no bloatware, and runs most graphics intensive games at very high settings without a hitch. The amount of horsepower you get for the price is pretty amazing. There are just a few drawbacks to look out for: (1) battery life isn't great; (2) not exactly "small" for portability, but it is a gaming machine; (3) the Windows install puts all of the user folders on the SSD instead of much larger HDD, so moving all of that was kind of a pain. Overall, I'd highly recommend this machine to anyone looking for a portable gaming rig or if you need extra power for other uses.

Good midrange gaming laptop Posted by: from: on This is a good midrange gaming laptop. The one complaint I have is that Geforce Experience takes forever to use. To make any changes to your settings or update the driver you have to wait for about ten minutes for the program to connect correctly. It just sits there thinking for about ten minutes. I have read about others who have had similar problems with Asus computers. This computer suffers from the same defect. I had already bought two other laptops and returned them for other problems, and I was a bit tired of shopping around, so I decided I could live with ten minutes of extra time for each update. But if you plan on launching Geforce Experience often, I would avoid Asus computers in general.

Great.. while it worked Posted by: from: on I've bought many an ASUS product. A dozen or so disc drives, 2 motherboards. Not a single issue yet. I'm mostly into PC games now, and I was in the market for a laptop so I gave the ROG series the nod over Alienware. .. I'll stop short of saying it was a mistake beacuse the specs of this machine whipped comparable Alienware machines up and down the block. ... but, sad to say, this machine is getting returned. First, graphics issues. Graphics card was crashing from the start. Constant messages that it had failed and came back online. Second; communications issues. WOULD NOT pair with a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard. Spent about 4 hours of reading and reinstalling drivers to rectify the problem. Then came the Win10 restart blue-screens. That was the last straw for me. Didn't care to resolve whatever was causing that issue. Nice machine otherwise. Nice backlit keyboard. Great specs, as I said above. A tad cheap construction-wise. An absolute fingerprint MAGNET! Overall I was pleased aside from the constant crashes and time I spent with driver updates. Perhaps you won't have the issues I had. But for me, a very disappointing purchase. $1400 is a lot of dough for a machine that crashes within 45 days.

Really wanted to like this Posted by: from: bloomington, IL on Here's the thing. I really wanted to like this laptop. I researched laptops for at least a month, and picked this one for its specs; 128 GB hybrid SSD/1TB HDD, 16 GB RAM, dedicated 2GB graphics card, 6th gen i7, backlit keyboard, numeric key pad. I intended to use this for video editing (not video games), and it did a pretty good job with the 4 videos I have made in the past 9 days since receiving this laptop. Although there were a couple times it had trouble rendering small videos, that it really shouldn't have with all these great specs IMO. I'm typing on the laptop right now. I would have still decided to keep it except for two big things: the edges on the laptop are SHARP. Too sharp to ignore, as they are not comfortable at all. The other thing is the trackpad. It's....kind of sticky...my finger doesn't run across it smoothly. It feels kind of rubbery if that makes sense. It takes a couple clicks to register sometimes too. Very annoying. While I'm at it, the battery life kind of sucks, and the keyboard is pretty squishy. I'll be returning it before my 14 day window is up. Looking at a Dell XPS 15 now, hopefully it's better.

A let down Posted by: from: on I bought this computer because of the specs and the reviews were pretty good. It's for my 19 year old son who's a gamer and he loved it in the beginning. All of his games ran at full tilt with no problems. Last night the computer just started randomly turning off. Not shutting down, just a complete loss of power. I forgot to get the warranty on it because I just handed the thing over to him and kinda forgot about it. It hasn't even been 45 days yet but I'm over the return policy date. Now I'm going to have to deal with Asus. This thing is too expensive to be doing stuff like this.

Crashes Constantly Posted by: from: on It cannot handle two graphics cards, the 960 and intel drivers clash every few minutes, the screen flashes then you see the crash/fix box, this happens again and again, i can have more then 30 crashes of this type every day. The drivers cannot easily be updated and i have spent more then 5 months in constant sending back and receiving nothing different from ASUS...i have owned computers since the early 80's and this is by far the worst one i have ever owned...there are better machines out there, do not buy an ASUS....you do not need that kind of grief.....BTW they will still not replace mine with a different model or refund me my money...do you want that kind of computer ownership? Recommend to a friend?, I wouldnt recommend to an enemy
