    Great machine with one small flaw!

    It seems ASUS heard the people in relation of heating between the Old ROG Strix laptops and the new ones with RTX 2070. The fans clearly do their job when several apps or heavy gaming is ongoing and that is good, making the computer to be in acceptable temperatures. RTX 2070 card is great with the Turing Technology and with 8GB of video, 6 cores, 16 Ram is great. A disadvantage here is the hard drive, which is extremely fast is just 512Gb, so you can get a SSD or an SSHD (as I did with 2TB) The Keyboard is 3 zones RGB which gives a nice touch to the machine. The computer's logo in the lid changes color as well. Also a new addition is a front light which also changes color. Regarding performance, if you are going to use it for just Office purposes it is great but I must say it is a waste of resources. So recommendation, this is for medium to hardcore gamers so you can play great games in a great machine. The only con so far I am finding in this laptop is the Webcam. It is a 720p cam, but the place it is located it is at the bottom right of the screen, not at the normal top center, so the lid needs to be adjusted for proper viewing. Do I recommend this computer? Yes, it is pretty nice. I give it 4.5 Stars! Some other nice aspects to consider: 1) It is 144 Hz with just 3ms delay 2) It is lightweight. 3) Keyboard and touchpad feels good. 4) It is VR ready Take care everyone! :)

    ROG + RTX + Anthem. Best combo ever.

    Buy it now while the Anthem & Battlefield V promotion is on. And Anthem is the game you don't want to miss. Loaded Anthem today and its mind blowing with Ray tracing on. This ROG laptop squeezed constant 60+FPS with Ray traced enabled with full details. The visuals of the game produce HD movie quality. This is a great value gaming gear with full performance power of RTX2070. Be aware that many products in the market like the MSI GS65 or Razer Blade only comes with MaxQ performance. Meaning - you don't get the full performance for your bucks. Think wisely. The ROG logo, keyboard and lighting bar are really cool & the screen quality is awesome for IPS panel, Honestly for those who post pictures in the complete dark room with IPS display and call it a light bleed needs to learn the benefit of the display being more vivid more color and wider viewing angle than those with none IPS display. This laptop runs cool around the palm and keyboard area, but warm around the vending area, the chassis is very very solid build, and the carbon like finish is a nice smooth touch up than just a thin metal. I was toggling between razer. GS65 and this, the build quality of ROG and Razer was the best in comparison to the fragile GS65. Razer had a high price tag with MaxQ performance. The keyboard is very comfortable and responsive for work stuff, and one tiny thing i really appreciate is the click button on touch pad, Not only the touch pad is smooth the mechanical buttons are just much better click touch pad. Overall - great laptop with all the latest technology, solid build quality and cool lighting. Anthem with ray tracing is something not to miss.

    I saw this laptop and its 15" model and I was so happy. A full RTX 2070! Not a Max-Q. I told myself, this is the one. To make a very long story short, and I mean obsessively long, lets just say I tried the 17, the 15, the 17, the 15 and then I tried them again for good measure. I am familiar with IPS screen bleed; every monitor, display, heck even the 3DS has it. This is not your normal screen bleed. This is so bad that more than half the screen is brown even when you are playing games. And, if you want to tell yourself that it’s panel pressure, that’s great, but there is no way to "relieve" the panel pressure in this one. It’s a great laptop if you are going to use an external monitor, but then again, why would you use a laptop for that?

    Amazing Speeds. Top quality stuff

    Love this thing. Thermals are quite good. With a simple repaste, you can get even better results. For those yammering about the screen, most IPS panels on laptops like this have "IPS glow" at "certain angles". That being said, it's not all that bad honestly. I got this and an external monitor so I barely ever use the screen itself. I only really notice in dark scenes or dark movies. It's unfortunate but definitely useable. 144hz is a bonus too. The boot speeds are incredible. about 5-6 seconds it's fully logged in and ready to do anything. Destroys at gaming with my added 32gb of ram. I run Battlefield 5 everything on Ultra including RTX at 1440p GPU runs at 74c and the fans are super quiet on this thing.

    Poor screen :(

    This is a really nice laptop. Great speed and you will not get a computer at this price with a full blown 2070! However I got one and it had really bad screen bleed so I exchanged it and it had the same issue. I spoke to the retailer and they said Asus is aware of the problem and working on it. So I am going to wait until they fix the screen issue. Overall solid laptop but the screen kills it for me. :(

    Solid performance BUT serious screen bleed

    So long stories short this laptop is great in terms of performance and benchmarks. But the screen bleed is so serious that I have to return it in the end. It happens from all FOUR corners of screen and you can feel it even when gaming. Please note: I am never a person picky on screen, and feel very happy with my previous ASUS ROG laptop 3 years ago. Also if you pay close attention, coil whine can also be a problem in the mid of night.

    Received my new Asus laptop about 2 weeks ago, and so far it is a beast. I use the laptop for a decent amount of graphic design at work, and gaming outside of the office. It runs all of my editing software without any struggle or lag, unlike my older laptop. I am also able to run a few different video games with the average frame rate around 100 fps, which I am more than happy with from a stock laptop.

    This laptop is the most amazing laptop all around I have ever used. It is great for gaming (High on every setting for apex legends nets me around 120 - 140 fps consistently). Not only that, but the keyboard feels great, and the screen is very responsive and looks like it is 4k even though it is only 1080p.

    Love this machine. It stays nice and cool even under load busting out the FPS on the beautiful 144hz 3ms screen backed by the full RTX2070. I see a lot of reviews mentioning the screen bleed, I must have either gotten lucky or a later batch because mine does not suffer from that at all.

    The Laptop is set with an RTX 2070 that steamrolls most games, there is a bit of screen bleed though. It is also good to get another stick of ram to enable dual channel which increases your FPS. Anyways this laptop is good if you want to game your heart out!
