    So I am not a hardcore gamer by any standard, but I am in love with this product. The hardware is beautiful from the keyboard to the display to the brushed finish on the lid. The reboot insignia is a little loud and obnoxious, but the computer is an overall wonderful purchase.

    The graphics are so much more crisp and fast preforming. Love the over all design of the laptop, simple yet nicely detailed. I'm obsessed with the rainbow keyboard effect. My games look amazing and are running so smooth no more bugging out and lag.

    I like my laptop has simple design with color changing keyboard. Also it is really a fast computer. I use Cinema 4D software for 3D modelling, so this laptop is what I need. I wish it has 17.3" screen though. Also, I am still having issues with connecting my bluetooth headphones, have not succeeded yet.

    ASUS never disappoints with quality; the laptop just works perfectly. It's quick enough to run most casual games and can even reach into some more advanced gaming. The only downside to this machine for me is the low RAM, but it's hardly a problem, as it's very quick, and is paired with a fast SSD. It stays cool and looks very clean and solid. Would recommend

    Really good laptop. Bought on sale for $800 makes it a steal. 9th gen I7 processor with a 1650 graphics card makes it a really good computer for almost any game or editing. 8GB of RAM is pretty good but this model can be upgraded nice and easily. RGB keyboard is awesome and looks great, great overall feel, keys aren't noisy. Overall one of the best budget laptops out there. Huge shoutout to ASUS for this computer.

    The G531gt is everything I could ever want in a laptop. It runs so smoothly and have ran many things at the same time while playing games and have not gotten one lag spike. It also has an awesome rgb keyboard that looks so great. The display is amazing as well, way better than my last laptop. This has the latest I7 making so powerful for the price range as well as the new GTX 1650. I would recommend you buy it. You won't regret it.

    Keyboard issues

    Pros: I really wanted to love this laptop. It's light weight and seems durable, and aesthetically it looks great. The components and capabilities of the hardware for the price are excellent. Cons: The keyboard constantly locks up and it would only work after restarting the laptop. Up to date drivers and software and even a complete reset of the OS didn't solve the issue. The keyboard would work after a restart, but only temporarily. It would eventually freeze and lock up again requiring another reboot. Returned and purchased a different laptop.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Amazing Laptop, BUT !!!

    Let me start off by saying that this budget laptop is definitely top notch for the price I paid ($850) at the end of the day. Like many others have commented, we all thought that it had 120hz monitor refresh rate but that's a lie. I even spoke to a BestBuy agent online and told me that it was. BestBuy has always been great in providing specifications on products, but this time they dropped the ball. I did not return it because I still felt I got an amazing deal. Here are my pros and cons: PROS: Amazing aesthetics, feels like a premium laptop. Asus did not cut any corners on the build. It comes with an i7 cpu at this price range. The gtx 1650 can play most game medium to high quality. The ips monitor makes the games pop visually, I have been playing Division 2 and it looks great. Keyboard comes with back lighting, the laptop is very slim and weighs barely nothing, very easy to store anywhere. CONS: They lied about the refresh rate, it's only 60hz. I wish ASUS provided a manual for tips and tricks about the laptop. Battery life is not that great if you plan to game on it, so you always have to be connected. Asus logo on the outside of the laptop does not light up. In conclusion, if you can get this laptop under $850 it's definitely a bargain. If you plan to game on it, I suggest getting a keyboard and mouse. Overall, I am pleased with my purchase and would recommend to anyone seeking a budget gaming laptop
