    I ordered this laptop after returning a defective Razer blade that had thermal issues and defective screen with dead pixels. So, they offered me to get something else in exchange, I decided to go for the Asus laptop with the new RTX and give it a try. I ordered the laptop on the 5th and I was told that its going to be shipped on the 15th, it arrived on the 21st instead, anyway that is not the /major/ problem. The first time I booted the laptop, I noticed the worst back light bleeding on a screen, as it was coming from all the edges of the screen. It took over than 10 minutes to boot it up, and I installed the windows updates immediately and it took over than 50 minutes to update, thats because of the Intel SSD which is embedded into the laptop and I figured out that it's the worst in the market, like why should I pay 2000$ for a laptop that has a junk SSD that is not even worth 50$ on the market. And its said that the laptop comes with a full RTX 2070, when I checked the clock speed, it is not even near to that. It seems more like a Max Q version but advertised to be a Full GPU. The very next day, I called Asus customer service, when I was explaining the problem the representitive seemed to be struggling to speak English properly of even understand a word I say, he said that he can't help me with that and suddenly the line was cut off, I was not surprised. I called Bestbuy after then and hopefully they ordered a replacement, it arrived within four days, but when I opened the replacement laptop I found more back light bleeding, the performance was not even compareable to the first laptop, it was like 50% performance cut off, probably a defective GPU or CPU, and it gave a lot of blue screens. Eventually I decided to return them both. After all, my advice to you guys is to look for another brand as this laptop is not worth your money or your time.

    first off I got this on a price match sale. was $300 off which made it a great deal for a new laptop. has everything you need for gaming. Has a small Intel 512gb M.2 SSD drive which is only downside. I only added a 2.5" Samsung evo 860 2TB SSD drive. Asus supplied the cable and screws to install extra drive. nice touch! Has 144HZ monitor and GSync . I have had it almost a week now and no complaints. runs fast and no crashes. only other thing I may add is 1 more 16gb stick of ram to boost it in future. they give you 1 stick and a free one open. bottom case comes off easy with about 10 screws. I highly recommend this laptop.

    So it's taking everything I throw at it and more and not even batting an eye. Games, programs, movies, etc. All run and look buttery smooth. The screen is amazing. Never thought too much on 144 refresh rate but it's super nice. Everything in this machine is awesome but I only have two faults. It can get pretty loud (to me) when a demanding game is playing. Pretty hot too. That and there is some screen bleeding. Hard to notice unless you really look for it. Seems to disappear for me every now and again. Other than those two (three-ish) complaints it's an amazing laptop and I'm so glad I got it.

    The 2070 RTX is the main reason I bought this. Its perfect for 1080p at 144hz. Wish it was Ryzen cpu (no stars off for that)and better SSD (1 star off). The intel 660 ssd is junk for a $2000 laptop. The new SSD in on the way.
