Asus RoG Strix ZX553VD-DM641T is a laptop suitable for demanding tasks and games. It’s a model from the ZX series which is similar to the FX one, but should not be confused with the Zephyrus one.
You can use this notebook as a desktop replacement too because it has an i7 processor, 8GB of RAM and dedicated graphics card – GTX 1050. In my opinion, this graphics chip is more than enough because it can handle demanding games.
The screen is a very good one with 1080p resolution, IPS panel and a 15.6 inch diagonal. In the past laptops such as this one had TN panel for fast response time, but IPS panel advanced and now they have not only the best viewing angles but good response time too.
On the processing part this model comes with an i7 processor (i7-7700HQ qith 4 cores and Intel UHD graphics). Also for graphics processing this laptop has the GTX 1050 (4GB of dedicated memory) so that you have all the power you need.
For storage it uses an 128GB SSD and an 1TB hard drive. This is the perfect match for speed and capacity. You should know that the OS is installed on the Solid State Drive and the HDD is for games and programs.
The only thing that I don’t like about this model is that the portability is not that great. It has a 2.5 kg weight and a battery that can last up to 4 hours.
Asus ZX553VD-DM641T comes with an optical DVD drive and this has it good things (you can install programs from DVDs or watch movies from such discs) and bad things (adds weight… about 200g).
If you want a laptop for various tasks that such an Asus would be my recommendation. From the video below you can see how it looks like and that there is not much difference from the G series.
