ASUS ROG GL502VS gaming laptop review



If you are on the market for a midrange gaming laptop that is both powerful and reliable, ASUS ROG GL502VS-DB71 should be able to more than meet your needs. This amazing laptop comprises of unique features that ensure cool gaming performance with the very impressive NVIDIA GTX 1070 and you’ll have to look hard to find the very few cons that might prevent it from being perfect. Having said that, a lot of customers seem to really appreciate the new ASUS ROG GL502VS-DB71 for pretty valid reasons. The laptop’s 6th generation Intel i7-6700Q processor, 16GB DDR4 RAM at 2133MHz, hybrid drive of very fast 256GB SSD plus 1TB SATA HDD at 7200rpm spindle speed and the GTX 1070 with impressive Pascal architecture all stand out as the main technical features and the operating system is the latest Windows 10. Also, you’ll probably like the red WASD keys as part of the classy and timeless look that makes it look like it is ready for the latest games of 2016 at high settings and resolutions. If you are an enthusiastic gamer with more memory and storage needs, you have four other options with 32GB memory and storage up to 500GB SSD and the massive 2TB. At first glance you will get the impression that this ASUS ROG is a very capable and powerful gaming laptop that is also quite stylish with the catchy metallic chassis and logos but with measurements of 15.3 x 10.5 x 0.9 inches and weight of 4.8 pounds it is not as heavy or big in size as some of the other gaming machines on the market despite having a decent size 15.6 inch screen.

ASUS ROG GL502VS includes a tactile backlit keyboard that is easy to type on with the 1.6mm key travel or game on and also with a 10-key numpad, useful gaming keys and a responsive and large touchpad, so there is nothing wrong with the keyboard or touchpad. The colors are very vibrant and the images displayed are crisp and clear on the 15.6 inch LED-lit Full HD display with the 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution. It has a very good quality 1.2 MP High Definition camera for your live Skype chats or gaming with others. NVIDIA GeForce GTX1070 has the 8GB GDDR5 graphics memory and offers rather outstanding performance as indicated by a Passmark videocard benchmark score of 11606 that makes it the fourth most powerful GPU in the world! ASUS ROG has a great variety of modern connectivity options including the faster 802.11ac wireless, reversible USB Type-C port and Mini Displayport for hooking it up to a large display for an even better gaming performance. Despite being a powerful gaming machine you will get up to 5 hours of battery life from its lithium ion battery so you can play longer without connecting it to a power outlet. There is not really much wrong with this ROG apart from the fact that it is not cheap as the dedicated graphics card alone costs more than 400 dollars but is very much worth the money if you’re looking for a capable gaming powerhouse that will meet pretty much anyone’s needs for gaming or work including the heavy and demanding multimedia stuff as it will perform your tasks very efficiently too but we recommend it mostly for avid gamers. Very impressive!
