144Hz Refresh speed always helps in FPS's
Plenty of RGB like its Christmas!
Ease of use
Touch pad for your num keys is pretty sweet
Intense Speed of applications
Beautiful GFX Quality
Cons: If you're going on a hardcore gaming session such as 5+ hours it tends to get hot, so just buy an aftermarket cooler with fans and you'll be good!
One other thing which is only a tiny problem would be if you hold down a key for a split second too long it will start typing out that letter or number multiple times in a row, at least 10 other than that she's a beaut!
Overall Review: I would recommend this to gamers on the go and those that are stationary as well!
Easily can be used for student software as well, which I do and then take a break by gaming!
Overall Review: 2 months owning this laptop and the GPU fan starts rattling at low speeds. sounds like something is grinding inside. Got 2 bad ASUS laptops in a row now, this will be the last.
Pros: amazing performance
outstanding build quality
Cons: no Ethernet port (very minor, couldn't think of anything else)
Overall Review: I travel a ton for work and live in work camps 21 days a month, and switched from my Alienware laptop to this. it's so small and light, and runs anything way above expectations. if you're looking for an absolutely out of this world powerhouse mixed with outstanding portability, look no further. this is it.
Pros: Speedy. Asus fixed buggy apps and services.
Cons: None. Just get a little hot for really prolonged time of usage.
Pros: Plays games really well, Ultra/High settings
Great looking computer
Cons: Only one RAM and Hard drive slot.
Loud Fans, but not too annoying
Not the easiest to upgrade parts, lots of screws (T5)/ribbon cables that must be handled carefully.
512 GB HDD is not enough/ get yourself 1 or 2 TB.
Overall Review: I would recommend this Laptop to anyone that needs an ultra slim gaming computer but will be ok without being able to do any significant upgrades. For 1899.00 you really can't find another computer with RTX 2080. Although the newer models contain RTX2070 Super which are probably a little better than the 2080 MAX-Q. This is the best "budget" RTX2080 that I found at the time. Just be sure to add at least a TB M.2 HHD to the cart as well, Warzone is sitting just above 200GB so the stock HHD will fill up fast.
Pros: The 2080 makes running any demanding title buttery smooth. Running games like the Witcher 3, Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order, Call of Duty, and many more at well over 100fps. (Doom Eternal never dipped below 144).
The design is sleek and comfortable.
The keys are remarkably satisfying. I find myself typing for hours and enjoying the keyboard more and more, despite the odd location.
You’d think the trackpad would be uncomfortable, but I now prefer it over a regularly centered trackpad.
Cons: Fans can get loud (just wear headphones).
Go buy a portable ssd or hdd.
Overall Review: 5/5. Powerful little machine.
Its not pretending its something that it isn’t. Wear headphones, grab a portable ssd for your games, and enjoy the Ray-Tracing.
Pros: - High Quality Build
- Very Sleek design
- Very Good Performance
- Mild RGB
- Easy-to-use ASUS Software
Cons: - Gets Very Hot
- Loud Fans
- Battery Life
Overall Review: After a month with this beauty, I can say I am satisfied with my purchase. The laptop itself has a very discreet design where at first glance you couldn’t even tell it’s a gaming laptop. The chassis is made of Magnesium Alloy so it feels like top quality material and it’s a little over 4 pounds so it’s very portable. So far every game I’ve thrown at it (with the exception of RDR2) just gets destroyed at ultra settings. It does get hot though, with the CPU reaching 93 Celsius at stock settings and the fans sounding like jet engines. With a little undervolting though I was able to get an acceptable temperature range with better performance while gaming whilst lowering the fan noise significantly. Battery life is pretty garbage though, only lasting 2 hours with all power-friendly settings on and light web-browsing but is to be expected from a gaming laptop. Although the model I bought only came with 512gb of storage and I had to opt for a 2TB External SSD. Overall, with some undervolting this is a beast of a laptop that can smash through almost any game at 1080p and pretty future-proofed in my opinion. Would’ve gave it 5 stars but my unit came with a single dead pixel at the top of the screen.
Overall Review: So this is kinda annoying. Sure the laptop feels nice and is smooth, but windows won't detect graphics card. I went to the device manager and it says: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported a problem. (Code 43). I just bought this less than a month ago and haven't been able to play a single game on above low settings. I've tried going to the GeForce website, but nothings worked. So much for having a decent gaming laptop to go overseas with me. Literally the only reason I bought this and I can't even game...
