We recently talked about MSI and the tradition they have built up of building some high quality gaming laptops but we better not forget about the Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand from Asus which has done every bit as much. Today we are looking at one of the newest gaming laptop releases which is the Asus ROG Strix GL503VM-FY022T. Below we are going to go over this model a bit closer and check out some of its key benefits and downsides.
Processor: Intel Core i7
Memory: 8 GB of RAM
Storage: 1 TB SATA plus 128 GB SSD
Screen: 15.6 Inches
OS: Windows 10
– We realize gamers love their large displays so this might be a hard sell for some but the smaller 15.6 inch display really helps make this a much better on the go option compared to your typical gaming laptop. You also have to remember that you always have the option to plug into a larger display such as a TV when the time comes to get down to gaming
– Due to what we mentioned above this laptop only weighs 2.3 KG compared to many of the gaming laptops which are pushing 3 KG
– A 1 year warranty is the standard coverage that comes with just about any laptop but Asus has improved on this by offering 2 year warranty on this particular device
– The powerful Intel Core i7 processor keeps things humming along nicely and when you add the powerful Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics card you end up with a combination that can handle the most demanding of games quite easily
– Great battery life on a gaming laptop? You better believe it as this laptop can reach up to 12 hours on a single charge
– Gaming laptops have recently been one of the only laptop types to avoid the removal of the optical drive but now even that isn’t the case as this laptop lacks one. This isn’t a big issue for everyone but some users prefer to have this option in case they do need to use physical media
– Even though newer memory is performing better than it used to the fact this laptop only has 8 GB of RAM instead of 16 is a disappointment
There isn’t much to not like about the new Asus ROG Strix GL503VM-FY022T. It has great performance and is a machine that just about any gamer would love.
