ASUS quality control for their laptops is dodgy and their after sale support is among the worst IF not the worst. Honestly until ASUS addresses these issues I do not recommend jumping the gun now on their laptops.

Does the panel scooping under to prop it up make it uncomfortable to use this laptop on your, you know, lap? It looks like it would dig in above my knees. It sounds like I really don't need a 3080, unless I want more than 24GB of RAM, and I might. But I definitely don't want the white model. Can you get the 3080 in gray? Do you have to crack it open to get the 3070 model to 24GB, or is it possible to order it pre-configured? Shame the only purchase link is to Amazon; I really try not to support them any more. Best Buy shows both FHD and QHD models, it looks like FHD uses a different GPU.

Hi Dave - would be AWESOME if you add to your review criterias sustainability & social aspects (labor conditions) - if we want to improve this world, these aspects have to be considered, too.

I have the Asus ROG Strix G15 with RTX 3070 and gotta say I love it. It looks good, performs amazingly, only thing I dislike is that the material of the laptop smudges pretty easily and feels rather difficult to clean. But everything, from the screen to port placements to trackpad to performance to build quality, it all feels great.

I think what makes that white color option so attractive is the Contrast they managed to implement with the help of that black bezeled screen... I love that detail neverthless

The reason why 1 wanne buy this laptop is because it has no webcam.. I just don't understand why everybody gets so berserk about a good webcam.. For me, a laptop without one, is a reason to buy one! Great revieuw, thank you sir. Love from the Netherlands!!!

How is the fan noise and thermals? Was looking at the new MSI GS stealth 30 series but I am very turned away by the reports of how loud the fans are and hot the laptop gets. Any reports on this for this new G15?

"Having the higher resolution screen can be a bit of a disadvantage" no, it really can't. Every one of the games you tested has a render resolution slider, just use that if 1440p is too heavy to run. Having the option of running at 1440p is objectively better than NOT having it.

I have been a laptop gamer for 10+ years now, the weight of the laptop does not bother me at all. Is this something that bothers people? I take my laptop to my friends all the time, I have a ruck sake, lifting it up is nothing and once it is on my back, it is hardly even noticeable. I would for sure, have a more chunky laptop that provides more power and better stats. Having a heavy laptop with better stats is better than having a lighter laptop which under performs.

I am so torn on this one, I need to replace my gaming laptop but I need a thunderbolt3 and currently none of the new AMD laptops come with Thunderbolt3. I wouldn't miss the webcam that much but it would be nice to have the Windows Hello option which I use on all my other devices.

Personally I like my bottom left control key wider. So I would take the gs66. Right now in the UK u can buy the old model ( with 2060) for £1.3k for the performance I'll get and the price it's probably one of my top choices. There is definitely better options. The g15 is very expensive a cool 1.7k-1.8k it's portable and has great performance. But I hardly ever need to take my laptop around unless I go on vacation and I happen to have hw to do in the meantime

For me, with all respect, a laptop should have a potential like from a desktop (especially the keyboard layout with numpad, seen on ones with 15.6" or bigger displays), but on your lap. What you're looking for, or aiming at, is a notebook (max size should be until 14" display, and with that kind of keyboard layout you're showing off), which is more practical and mostly like mobile/tablet-ish powered but with fan. That's the difference I think should be stated.

I’m so curious. Who are the people that buy these? $1,799 for 1440p and it can’t run open world games despite being a ‘gaming laptop’? Who is this for... you could buy a MacBook Air and also partially fund a monster desktop rig. Just super curious here.

My next laptop will be the Lenovo Legion Slim, waiting for the newest Intel cpu or with AMD Ryzen, Never Asus again. Asus bang for your buck is great, but my previous ROG had problems with the battery, almost impossible to replace, a nightmare to open, clean, and maintain. Plus typing on Asus keyboards is meh, not great.
