If you like games or simply need a laptop for demanding tasks than this Asus GL502VM-FY497T would be my recommendation. it comes with an quad core processor, GTX 1060 graphics, SSD and Windows 10. It’s a model from the Rog Strix series and this means that’s made especially for gaming. The keyboard is illuminated so that you can type easy when the light is not so good (at night etc).
It’s coming with an i5-7300HQ processor that has 4 cores and comes from the 7th generation. This is a very good i5 because in benchmarks it has 6852 points.
So that games run fluent it has a good graphics chip – GTX 1060 – with 6GB of RAM and the system memory is 8GB of RAM. In my opinion, on the RAM part it has more than enough and it does not need more.
For additional acceleration this notebook PC comes with an SSD that has a capacity of 128GB. This is not the only storage, it also has a big HDD with a capacity of 1TB.
Portability is better than expected with a weight of about 2.2kg and a battery that can last up to 3-4 hours.
It can be used from the first moment because of the pre-installed OS – Windows 10 Home.
Previous generations had TN panel, but this one has an IPS one with brilliant colors and viewing angles. Combined with Full HD resolution it’s a very good device for gaming, movies and other task.
The processor could have been one from the 8th generation or an i7. But, because of the 4 cores it still is very good.
Screen resolution is very good, but could have been 4k/UHD. Still, you can connect an external monitor with such a resolution.
Asus GL502VM-FY497T is a laptop from the current year for those interested in a desktop replacement that can handle anything and does not cost too much.
The reliability of Asus laptops is very good so that they last even 10 years and work like in the first year.
