Asus FX503VM-DM042T is a very good alternative to the RoG series being a budget gaming laptop. It comes with new tech including an i5 quad core CPU and GTX 1060 graphics.
Such a laptop is perfect for gaming, video editing or demanding tasks. It could be considered a very good desktop replacement.
This FX503VM series model has a good price and for the money we get a notebook PC with Kaby Lake processor and GTX dedicated graphics. The design of the laptop is very good and the keyboard is with backlit.
It comes with i5-7300HQ processor that has 4 cores and because of that we have all the processing power we need. For those interested in a model with i7-7700HQ there such a model here.
For gaming the second most important component (after the CPU) is the graphics card and this model has GTX 1060 with 3GB of RAM.
The sotrage is represented by an SSD and a HDD. And, on the RAM part it has 8 gigs of DDR4.
The manufacturer says that the battery lasts about 12 hours, but in my opinion it lasts 4-5 hours depending on what you do on it.
Having Windows 10 preisntalled you can connect to the net from the first time you get it. I recommend that you stick to the preinstalled version because it has all the (good) drivers installed.
The screen is not with 4k resolution but has matte finish (anti-glare) and 1080p support. Also, i must say that the viewing angles are decent… the panel being a TN one, not an IPS.
For someone interested in a notebook for multiple purposes but in special for games I recommend this model. There are some alternatives from other brands but when it comes for gaming laptops I like the models from Asus.
Below is a video preview of this models so that you’ll make a impression of the FX 503 series.
