Asus ROG Strix GL702VM-DB71 is one of the best gaming laptop available because of the i7 6700HQ procesor and the GTX 1060 graphics card. You should know that the notebook is available in many configurations of RAM and storage. For example, the GL702VM-DB71-HID1 model has 16GB of RAM and a 1TB HDD. The best model is HID16 because it comes with 32GB of RAM and two SSDs (one that has 1TB and the other with 4TB of space).
It has a good price and for this money we get a PC with one of the best CPUs on the market. I can say about i7-6700HQ with 4 core and 8118 points in benchmark.
The screen is a 17.3 inches one with FHD resolution and a good IPS panel. So that your eyes don’t get tired fast it comes with anti glare support. if you plan to use this laptop for games that you could buy a monitor or TV for it.
On the portability side it has 2.7 kg and a battery with 4 cells that lasts about 4 hours… depending on what you do on it.
It comes with Windows 10 so that you can browse the web of play a game fast. If you plan to install another operating system than you should create a backup of the pre-installed one because it has the drivers from Asus.
For games it has the Nvidia GTX 1060 card and you can see than it has no M suffix but it’s still a mobile card with slight lower frequency.
Pros and Cons
Pros of this gaming machine are the components, that it has Windows on it and that it is available in many variations. With a laptop like this you can run anything smooth (from games to Photoshop).
The only minus is that the weight is not so low (2.7 kg as said above).
So, if you want the best portable laptop for games than this model should do the job. Asus always made good laptop and the RoG series is for you if you want something special.
