Asus ROG Strix GL502VS-WS71 is one of the best gaming laptops on the market because it comes with an i7-7700 HQ processor from Intel, GTX 1070 graphics card from Nvidia and 14 variations of storage/RAM.
This model is for those who like games or want a laptop that can replace a desktop – a so-called desktop replacement.
It has a good price and for the money we get the newest i7 processor from the Kaby Lake generation and a 256 bit graphics card with 8GB of memory. The cost depends on the configuration (it’s available in 14 variations of storage/RAM and this variations are: HID6, HID1, HID8, HID9, HID10, HID3, HID12, HID11, HID13, HID14, HID2, HID4, HID5 and HID7). If you have a bigger budget than you should go with the ROG G752VS because it has a bigger 17.3 inch screen.
This Asus comes with a 15,6 inch screen that has Full HD resolution and IPS panel.You must also know that it is an anti-glare one so that your eyes don’t get tired.
On the RAM side this portable PC has 16 or 32 GB type DDR4 RAM. This quantity is needed because the graphics card has it’s own 8GB one and the PC needs the balance. GL502VS-WS71 comes with PCIe 256G/512G/1T/2T SSD + 1T/2T/4T SSD/HDD and 16G/32G RAM.
The processor is a fast one because it is the i7-7700HQ w/ 4 cores and 8946 points in benchmark.
If you have Gigabit Internet than this laptop can download at this speed having 10/100/1000 LAN and wireless ac.
On the software side this PC has Windows 10 and I think it’s the best OS that can be installed on a PC.
Pros and cons
The pros of this notebook are the good screen, that it has SSD, the new GPU and the strong CPU. (In my opinion the processor/CPU is the most important part in a PC, so you should choose laptops with i7.) Another good thing is the temperature. Temperatures are low because it is a Republic of Gamers laptop and everything runs smooth because of the latest components.
The only not so good think is the portability. But, I must say that I’m impressed with the weight of 2.6 kg and big 4 cell battery that lasts about 4 hours.
If you’re looking for a good desktop replacement or a gaming laptop than this GL502VS-WS71 would be one of the best solutions. For more info you should look at the preview below.
