Can somebody explain, why Asus TUF gaming A15 is so bad? I've ordered it because of pretty good performance/price ratio, but many reviewers bash it because of temperature problems. Please help me if you can, I'm confused.

Azzurri82 15 days ago
re: XPS 17" -- also unsure if the trackpad QC issues have been completely taken care of by Dell? Supposedly some drag/drop trackpad issues with it, unlike the wobble issues solved by Dell earlier this year with the 15". Expensive for QC issues. Also totally agree on Alienware software issues. I'm currently in the process of replacing a 17" R4.

I bought a dell G5 I7 out of college needs, had several problems, couldn't be fixed for 2 friggin months, got it refunded (took another month) bought an Omen(cheaper and better hardware) and now I am much happier xD, only maybe the 45% NTSC(I am an animator not gamer) display is a bit disappointing but can be fixed

Well, i do have an Asus Tuf f15, it totally worth for the price, and so far i didn't have heat issues, i'm using the intel ones, idk with the amds but them supposed to be even cooler than intel ones. Compared to acer nitro and legion in the same specs, i definitely went for the asus in performance and value vs money. i ust got 2 4k screens and it goes perfect. In my tier, personally is way above those nitro and legion, it just don't perform as well, Cheers!

I didn't like the HP Omen because the fans always stayed on, even when not doing anything. I returned it for that reason.

I honestly dont understand why they pump out so many devices that basically all do the same stuff, dont people grow tired of this shit yet? windows is the same no matter which laptop it runs on. just different plastic housing, boohoo. how many laptops do people buy? one each year? wtf? Been away from the computer scene for a while, and now all these exotic no sensical naming systems are just way way beyond comprehension for anyone. who the fuck can remember all these code names? absolute madness

Dave I gotta question... You placed omen 15 in S and legion 5 in A... While in another video you were speaking about issues and found omen to have more screen issues and legion to have rarely some.... So what do I buy? Omen or legion? Both are amazing but one has to be better...

Genuine question. What is better about the omen vs the legion 5? Far as I can tell, if you spec them the same, the legion performs better, and has a better display and a numpad.

TUF 15 was such a disaster, and ASUS double downed on it so hard by getting angry and threatening lawsuits to steve when HWU reviewed it. ASUS, you need some change in management, fast. You can't sell crap and rely on brand name to lift sales on the long run. Look at Intel, it's getting eaten alive by AMD. You guys want to be the next Intel in the industry?

Truck driver here in the market to game portably. G14, Legion 5, or Rp15 are my top considerations right now. I play a lot of For Honor and want the best response times and highest frame rate. My budget is right around $1200, but I’m willing to pay up to $1700 for the right one. Wondering if I should just keep waiting, or get a budget laptop around $1000 to hold me over for a year+. Eventually the goal is 1ms response time locked at 240hz, but who knows how long we’ll have to wait until we get a laptop capable of that. I’m thinking at least 1-3 years out. I’d be willing to go above budget for that. I don’t care or know much about “thermals” as long as the performance is good while it’s hot.
