Windows 10 Kills it

 

- It's a great upgrade when it works and doesn't destroy your budget. Most big name games on Steam run flawlessly on it. - You can create media on this machine without any problems. - It's not that heavy.

- WINDOWS 10. It blocks many applications from accessing the graphics hardware. This includes Firestorm, Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, Chrome, etc. What happens is the application freezes it. Web browsers get right back to working but if it's a...

- Great speeds - could be quality gaming laptop - Possible if they are willing to downgrade to Windows 8.1 or other OS

- Unsolved Windows 10 BSOD(Blue Screen of Death) reinstalled Windows 10 and drivers multiple times unable to fix.

Very good laptop with one major flaw

 

-Easy to set up with minimal bloatware. -Keyboard is nice. Touch pad is decent -Handles games very well. -Doesn't get too hot.

The screen, the screen, the screen. Horrible screen. Did I mention the screen? I initially thought that the problem with the screen was just the viewing angle (which isn't bad). It turns out the screen is very mediocre. It's especially bad with the...

Great laptop so far but some issue

 

I dont know why they boost up the price on this laptop, this laptop should stay at 799, well i think its 999 but whatever, I use this laptop when i travel around and it handles well i would consider this laptop to anyone who is traveling or going to...

So far its a great laptop, I bought this laptop for 799 plus for a 3 day shipping I bought it on Wednesday 13 January and came on a Saturday morning and was ready to use, so far this laptop is a all around laptop it can handle most of the new/old games...

The fan can heat up when you are playing games either the nvidia geforce or the intel graphics card when Im playing GTA V the fan noise is pretty low but really warm, you will feel the heat if you are playing games on your lap but on a desk you won...

great laptop for the price

 

I would not recommend this for one its not being sold anymore and the fact that newegg displayed the wrong info for what i got.

Got on a black friday sale for $100 off

This laptop was advertised with the latest 6th gen i7 and found out as soon as i got it it was the fourth gen, that was the only reason i bought it in the first place but now i cant return it and definitely dont want to spend the extra 3-400 on the 6th...

Descently powered laptop for the price. Horrible screen viewing angle.

 

While the screen is a major letdown- The rest of the laptop performs admirably. Everything I've thrown at it so far (Witcher 3, SWTOR, World of Tanks and a couple of others) runs smoothly with descent settings. This is a laptop I would recommend that...

Can run modern games and other software without issue. Keyboard keys are lit and have good travel for a laptop keyboard. I usually use headphones, but the speakers seem to be sufficient for their size.

The screen is garbage, I find myself constantly adjusting the screen when I shift position in my seat. No matter how much I adjust the settings everything seems to be slightly washed out. The 5400 RPM hard drive can make load times in some games pretty...

Great hardware, hampered by a few things. Still an excellent buy for a gamer.

 

Conclusions and Notes For those who are primarily focused on gaming, but don't want to spend over a thousand dollars? This is fantastic value. ASUS hardware has always been reliable for me and powerful throughout the years. However, as far as everyday...

I previously bought ASUS before and was highly impressed with the hardware at the time, and was basically a standard-use oriented version of this. Having my focus shift to higher quality gaming, I decided to pick this up since it offers great...

Two major issues so far. Let's get the easy one out of the way. 1: 5400RPM HDD. I was honestly pretty surprised and even a little upset that in 2015 5400RPM is still the norm for computers. For practical purposes, this computer actually responds and...

It is more than great for its price!

 

I really like that laptop, it is really not that expensive for a good gaming laptop. It allows me to play lots of games with no lags at all! I was amazed how it really works! I would recommend exactly this ASUS laptop.

The only BAD thing happened to me with this computer was only that it was shipped for too long
