Asus GL702VS-AH73 is a gaming laptop for those interested in a solution that can play any game at high details. It has components like the i7 Kaby Lake processor, GTX 1070 graphics card and 12GB of RAM. Components may be different for other configurations of the GL702.
It has a good price and for the money we get a 17.3 inch model that looks great and has good image quality because of the screen with 1080p resolution, 120Hz and IPS panel… according to the manufacturer.
Asus Rog Strix GL702VS-AH73 has a very good 17 inch display, good refresh rate and matte (non glare) display so that your eyes don’t get tired so fast.
The processor is an i7-7700hq model with 4 cores and about it I must say that it’s the best Kaby Lake processor available on laptops.
For the best experience when playing games this notebook has a GeForce Gtx 1070 graphics card with 8GB of dedicated memory.
Also for smooth experience for any app the system has plenty of RAM – 12GB of RAM type DDR4.
The keyboard is very good with illumination, and keys special for gaming (WASD) stand out.
The screen resolution is not higher (4K or something like it). This would have been useful for gaming at a higher resolution. Now, such a thing can be done by connecting an external monitor or a UHD TV.
Portability is so so because the weight is about 6.4 pounds and battery lasts up to 4 hours.
The SSD has not a big capacity because it’s an 128GB model. A model with 512GB of storage is GL702VS-DS74 and I recommend it for those in search for an alternative with more RAM and SSD space.
