    Simply the best

    Pro: + Looks absolutely beautiful without looking too much like a gaming laptop. I won't feel embarrassed bringing this laptop to a Starbucks. + The top feel nice and sturdy and you can open it with just one hand. + 144Hz screen looks stunning, and on games like Overwatch, everything runs buttery smooth. + SSD is extremely quick and it is wonderful going from 3-5 minutes startup time in a HDD to about 10-15 seconds in a SSD. + Very easy to open the back cover and upgrade the RAM, M.2 card and secondary drive as needed. + RTX 2060 is just amazing. It runs my entire gaming library with no issues. (Although I do play in medium settings most of the time as I prefer function over graphics) and I'm sure this GPU with serve me well for years to come. + Keyboard has a nice feel and I rarely mess up typing baring one issue (See negatives). I could stare at the RGB lights for hours and it still looks like it came from the future to me. + Fans do a very good job in keeping the temperature down. While the keyboard still feels warm to above warm while gaming, it doesn't feel like you are going to burn your fingers. Nevertheless, I still recommend investing in a cooling fan. + One year warranty with accidental coverage. This is a godsend for most people who just aren't paying attention and all it takes is that one unlucky drop to ruin everything. Neutral: * RAM is only one stick of 16GB. This may or may not be an issue depending if you prefer dual channel. * No secondary drive. Again may not be an issue depending on use, but considering this is a gaming laptop, you may want to invest in a 2.5" SSD to hold all your games as the 512GB that is comes with will fill up quickly. The box does provide you with the things you need to install a secondary drive which is a plus for me. * Sound is just okay. Lacks bass in my opinion. I do recommend either using headphones or external speakers. * Small amount of bloatware, but doesn't take long to uninstall all of it. * Power button feels a bit too much like cheap plastic in my option and just doesn't have that click to let you know that you pushed the button down. * Fans can get pretty loud during heavy gaming, but I consider it the price that must be paid to game on a laptop. * Somewhat heavy, but YMMV on that. Personally I don't have a issue lugging it around town. * Some reports on backlight bleeding. While I do see some on mine when the screen is all black, considering I don't see it 95% of the time, it doesn't bother me much. * Battery time isn't great. You won't get more than just a few hours unplugged, but what are you doing playing games on a unplugged laptop anyway? Negative: - No Thunderbolt 3. Does have a USB-C port but not having Thunderbolt 3 is almost inexcusable considering the price you pay for this laptop. I have a Dell G7 from last year that was almost half the price of this laptop that does have Thunderbolt 3. So this laptop not having it is a strike in my book. Those that are looking to use a external GPU in the future must look elsewhere. - Not the biggest fan of the keyboard layout. Number pad is a bit smaller than I'm used to and the zero number key is cut in half so I end up hitting the "Up" arrow key half the time. Don't like the arrow keys being pushed together where it is. Considering how big the laptop is you would think the would placed the arrow keys between the letters and number pad. Also unless I'm missing something, I do not understand why the right CTRL key is so huge. That space could have been used for the arrow keys. - The camera is below the screen and to the side. Personally this doesn't bother me as I am not a streamer but I know this will annoy some people and I recommend investing in a camera. Final thoughts: This is a wonderful laptop and a wise investment for anyone interested in gaming on the go. Looks beautiful without going too far, and pretty much plays every game under the sun with little to no issues. While some of the negatives are just egregious, overall this will be one of the best laptops for a very long time and I will recommend this one to anyone that ask.

    I am absolutely in love with my new gaming laptop. The only negative thing I'd have to say about it is the battery life. I'm going to be wearing out this battery with it plugged in 80% of the time. This thing has all the bells and whistles in regards to aesthetics and RGB lights,as well as a very powerful graphics card and processor. I was shocked at how cheap (under $2000) this laptop was for having the new generation RTX 20 series desktop graphics card.

    My first gaming laptop. Had it for a month now and it just been great. The rtx 2060 keeps frame rates high on high setting for my games. It is kinda loud but I put on headphones anyways. Screen is fantastic with the 144hz refresh rate. It checked all the boxes that I wanted in a gaming laptop.

    I could not be more thrilled with this purchase!! First bought an Alienware - right out of the box a problem with wifi card. Returned it, and bought this. Love it! LIGHTENING FAST! This is my third Asus product. I am not a brand loyal person but research and experience always seem to take me back to Asus!

    Computer is wonderful but trying to get the free game download has been exasperating. Partly due to my misreading a letter in the code for the game. When I got it down I tried to get the game and every time they were down for maintenance. When I finally got through the free game download had expired. This on the NVIDIA SITE

    little bulky but I don't mind it, like the carbon fiber finish on it. led keyboard is not bad, but the W A S D don't light up very well as I would like. Compared to my last computer that was a ROG double the power now. gaming is a lot more smooth now and the computer runs very well.

    Once you go high refresh rate you never go back!

    Screen is beautiful. Also, power cable and ethernet port on the left is a must for me. Easy access to major components via a panel underneath was a smart move on ASUS. The webcam could be better, but to achieve the thin screen bezels Im not bothered by it at all. Amazing laptop!
