For those interested in gaming I recommend the Asus FX504GM-EN151T. It’s a new laptop from the TUF series and because of that it incorporates a new i5 processor and GTX 1060 graphics. With a weight of about 2.3kg we can say that the portability is decent… considering that this laptop is intended to be used for games.
This Asus FX504GM-EN151T laptop comes with the i5-8300H processor that includes 4 cores. Being a processor from the 8th generation we have access to better performance and better battery life. For example, the battery can last up to 4 hours… depending on what you do on the laptop. Compared to the i5-7300HQ this processor has about 20% better performance and uses less power.
On the software side it comes with Windows 10 Pro so that you can use the device for professional tasks too. If it had come with Windows 10 Home it would have been also as good.
Everything is fine on the memory side because it has 8GB of DDR4 RAM and a big 256GB SSD. For more space this notebook has a traditional HDD with 1TB of space.
The screen is a 15.6 inch one with 1920×1080 pixel resolution.
Does not come with an i7 processor like these models. Depending on what games you play or for what you use the laptop the i5 quad core might be enough.
If you like games or want a special laptop than this model would be my recommendation. It has all the features of a gaming laptop (fast processor, fast graphics card, illuminated keyboard and good cooling… beside others).
I did not mention that the screen is one with fast response time because it has a TN panel. IPS panels have better viewing angles but not so good response time and here come in TN panels which have the best response time.
In my opinion, when it comes to gaming laptops Asus does a very good job and you get great devices at a not so big cost.
