Asus FX504GD-E4603T is a laptop for those interested in a device that can handle any game and has the newest components. On the software side it comes with Windows 10 Pro so that you have access to the newest apps, games and programs.
Such laptops are not only for games, but can be used as desktop replacements for those who want a laptop for work or heavy tasks.
You should choose such a laptop because of the components that are much better from the previous generations. For example, the i5-8300H processor has 4 cores and a performance boost of about 20% compared to the i5-7300. On the graphics part it comes with GTX 1050 2GB from Nvidia and because of this graphics card all the games will run fluent.
Battery life is about 10 hours in the most optimistic scenario, but normally it lasts about 4 hours.
RAM memory is 8GB, this being the new standard. In my opinion you don’t need more.
The storage for this Asus FX504GD-E4603T is represented by an 1TB hard drive with 16GB of SSD memory (Intel Optane on M.2). So, you have big and fast storage.
It does not have a real SSD. It’s an Optane memory that works like a cache.
Another not so good thing is that it lacks an i7 processor and because of that if you want something with i7 than I recommend this one.
If you want a laptop from the year 2018 that has very good specs and does not cost too much than this model is my recommendation. Asus laptops are very good because of the fact that they are very reliable and don’t cost too much.
I did not mention that the 15.6 inch screen is a decent one with IPS like viewing angles (170 degrees to be more exact). It’s more than you need for games, movies and productivity tasks.
This model comes from the TUF series (The Ultimate Force) for people that want the best hardware but don’t want to spend a fortune.
