This laptop Asus RoG Strix GL702VM-GC182T comes with an Intel Core i7 Kaby Lake and a decent video card. I am talking about GTX 1060 with 3GB memory which isn’t the greatest but it can offer some good results in recent games. There are even cheaper gaming laptops but they don’t have the same hardware and the video card is very important if you are looking for better graphics. Of course, you are looking for a laptop with a big screen and few brands offer such a solution.
Viewing angles are great on the new generation 17 inch display, the quality is higher in comparison with previous generations. Most gaming laptops got a SSD for faster boot and apps star in few seconds. This type of laptops come with two types of drives so users get a larger storage space and everything moves fast (depends where you install the apps, I recommend on the SSD). The package contains even a gaming mouse and you had to buy it for some games. Sound quality is great even, but for competitive games you still need a gaming headset.
If you keep it plugged in all the time, you don’t even need its battery and performance is the same no matter how well charged it is. Brands can’t pun desktop components on laptops due to their power consumption, but I saw alternatives even with Ryzen CPUs (desktop models). The screen doesn’t have a 120 Hz refresh rate, only the really expensive models have it for a better gaming experience (imagine is very fluid).
Asus GL702VM-GC182T can be carried easily because it has under 3 kg and with each generation we can see that brands really want tot make their machines more lighter and compact. Of course, you can’t make a gaming laptop very thin because cooling systems are more efficient if the fans are large enough. Multimedia laptops are much thinner and came have similar specs, but he CPU is a little bit different (U type CPU – low voltage). Prices are justified for what’s inside, and later they have to be upgraded (more RAM or a SSD).
