Great laptop for gamer and video editing.
Posted by: califazn08 from: on
I bought this laptop to replace my 6-7 yr old Dell laptop. I'm not a gamer. I purchased this laptop so I can edit videos and use Adobe programs.
It's a beautiful machine with amazing power. Everything works perfectly stable and powerful. The screen is totally awesome, amazing quality. Windows 10 is easy to use and grateful that it comes on this machine. Sound is powerful, mouse pad works amazing, screen resolution is top notch. I am using this machine for lots of video work and graphics work and I am pleased so far. I haven't found a single thing that is weird or bad so far and I am very picky. Just a great machine to have.
This machine is LIGHT! I can't believe how light it is and how cool it runs. It weighs a several pounds less that my Dell Studio XPS 16 Series.

$1500 laptop for $1000
Posted by: SaikoGekido from: on
Returned a Toshiba 4k flip screen that was poorly designed. Was resigned to not finding something worth buying at Best Buy. Stumbled on this in store. The specs were ridiculous, but my experience with Dell and HP made me a little skeptical. ASUS did not screw up the design. No ventilation issues, no slippery grip plastic, no bleeding white reflective screen. This thing is freaking amazing for that price. The only reason it isn't more expensive is because ASUS has another laptop in the same ROG line for ~$1500 that has a few more features like an even better cooling system, soundcard, SSD, and slots. If you're looking at this laptop and anything up to $1400, get this. You won't find a better deal.

Amazing Hardcore Gaming Laptop
Posted by: Disectotron from: on
Ive had this laptop for a couple of weeks now and it can handle any game on the highest graphics that I wish to play. It doesn't overheat and the fans are almost silent. Ive sat down and gamed on this laptop for hours and it was ready for more. If I was to need another laptop in the future I am gonna go with Asus because I looked at laptops with the same specs as this one and they were all $1500 and up. And stay away from alienware for one its a dell and two a worker at bestbuy told me that alienware overprices their products way too much.

Great comp for the price. possible Battery issues
Posted by: Wannapolkallama from: on
I've had the computer for a week or two now and over all it's been great to me. I don't game super heavily but I enjoy my games running well and that is what this gives me. I can run just about any game that I want on it (though not all will be in high settings) and it's small enough to take around and use in lots of other situations. I haven't tested it with media editing yet but I have high hopes. As with any gaming laptop though, it will run hotter. I've never passed problamatic or dangerous temperatures. It's just warmer than your standard computer, as well it should be.
I have found that the battery drains really fast even in sleep mode. I get an average of 3-5 hours out of it in use time, and I get about 12-18 hours of sleep time before it's just about dead. (this might be a manufacture defect I'm not sure)
The speakers on this are good for a laptop, but they give an odd quality to some of the music I listen to and the "Sonic Master" sound options aren't enough to get it the way I want it. That being said, I tend to use good earbuds or headphones, so it's not a huge problem for me.
I love the keyboard. There is a really comfortable key press distance and it only took me a few minutes to get used to it. (most of the time It takes me days to get used to a keyboard) Seeing as I type a lot for work and other things, this is a big bonus for me.
Over all I really like the computer. It has all of the latest tech for a pretty stellar price. (specially when it's on sale). While it's not the progamer's laptop, It will do anybody good if they're looking for a really good gaming experience mixed with the power to work on just about anything else they want.
I still have to test it with Media editing and CAD production to see how it handles those. If I can edit this I'll fix it after I do.

Value for money
Posted by: Marlion from: on
The laptop works well within my expectation.
Only issue is the lack of confirmation on the type of M.2 SSD card it support.

I confirm this Laptop has an awesome performance, great video (nVidia 960M + Intel HD graphics), 8 logic processors, nice HDD (7200). The keyboard is really nice, with red illumination, good sensation when typing, I'm really happy with this purchase. It exceeds my expectations.

Had an older 17" model before this one. This one is half the weight with almost the performance. I do miss a few tHngs from the bigger model such as 4 USB 3.0 ports as opposed to 2 3.0s, 1 C and 1 2.0. USB 2.0? Really? There is also only one 2.5" drive bay instead of two which sucks for me cuz I have two SSDs but can only use one and now have to buy an M.2 SSD. The M.2 option is in no way a negative, but now I have a useless SSD and that much less storage space. Upgrading internals is super easy, though.
All in all it is a great rig.

good gaming laptop for me
Posted by: ladybugz from: on
I do love this laptop, I wanted everything it has. The only issue I have is the heat this thing produces, I have to have a lap fan for it to keep the heat off my leg. This computer is fast, easy to customize and plays my heavy use games very well on ultra. The design is very nice but does collect fingerprints like no other.. I would buy this laptop again, very happy with it.
