I do not recommend, this laptop has cause nothing but problems.

Pros: Stats are good on paper but and when the device runs fine when connected to a charger, quick access tray in the back made it easy to upgrade to a TB SSD.

Cons: Battery life is the biggest hindrance. The case is this fake carbon fiber feel and is very flimsy., and then mine has an issue where any sort of pressure on the keys cause the device to short out.

Other Thoughts: As an I.T. Systems and Network Support Specialist, I use this device all the time for work and it was great while it worked, but then a month into owning the device, if i applied a moderate amount of pressure on the keys (specifically the F and G) the laptop would shut down. I sent the device out for repairs and after taking a month to get it back to me, due to the repair center not having the parts needed to fix it they sent it back to me. Within the 3 months warranty that is given from the Asus repair center the device had the issue again. After contacting them for a replacement they refused and wanted me to send it out for repairs again.

TLDR: purchase a different the product is unreliable and the customer support is atrocious even with the best warranty you can get from here.

Very fast & reliable, track pad needs improvement.

Pros: Very fast and responsive. Processing speeds are insane! Videos and in-game graphics are beautifully rendered as well.

Cons: Battery life is very limited, especially when playing videos or games. Normal run time gaming is less than 1.5 hours on full charge. Built in tracks pad is nearly useless. There is only one little section that actually functions as it should. I normally use a mouse when gaming, but surfing the internet and normal everyday usage is a major pain using this track pad!!

Other Thoughts: Overall, a good computer for the money. Please fix the track pad issue Asus!!

If you are buying this for college and looking for Battery life with settings set at low performance and brightness I am getting about 2.5 to 3 Hours on a full charge 2 on full performance at most

Other Thoughts: I would buy this laptop again in a heart beat
Newegg handled the RMA wonderful and the lady was awesome who handled it

Didn't work

Pros: Seems like a great value based on components

Cons: Bad quality control by Asus. Widespread issues with the left speaker. Keyboard on this unit did not work. Another unit that I ordered would not even stay on long enough to get through setup.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend.

Sleek, speedy, and stylish.

Pros: - Light Weight.
- Plenty of horsepower.
- Sleek.
- Ample storage.
- Sturdy construction.
- Bright screen.
- Loud (but good sounding) speakers.
- Pretty Colors (RGB Keyboard Back-Light)

Cons: - Power hungry (expect about 2hrs on battery)
- Questionable quality assurance.
- Faux carbon fiber keyboard shell shows fingerprints easily.
- You know it when the cooling fan kicks in to high gear.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I am very happy with this laptop.

I got it as a replacement for my aging Lenovo T530 daily driver, and haven't regretted the purchase. Beyond it's sexy styling, flashy rgb back-lit keyboard, light weight, and generous horsepower, this Laptop rivals my gaming desktop in performance. It's a beast, in a slim, sleek, and easy to transport package.

While I listed several cons, the biggest complaint I have has do do with the shell of the screen. The left hand side has not been finished properly, and there is a sharp edge that I have nearly cut my fingers on several times while closing the laptop or adjusting the screen angle. I suspect that careful use of a nail file will resolve this issue, but, for the premium price that was changed this should have been caught by quality control.

In spite of the negatives, the geek-gasoms are real, and plentiful. If you are a power user, you will not regret buying this.

Really Good All Around Gaming Laptop

Pros: This is the first real gaming computer that I have bought and the first gaming computer that I have used and boy is it great. The SSD boots up super fast and the SSHD is pretty fast. The screen is crisp and clean and the speakers are crazy good, it doesn't sound like a laptop at all. The size of the computer is nice, and also really thin. The Nvidia GTX 1060 runs like a dream and can run almost any game I've played at 60fps on high video settings. And with 16GB of RAM I can have four whole tabs of Chrome open instead of two, but seriously I have yet to slow down the performance of this computer. The i7 8th gen runs great and can easily be overclocked (but only overclock at your own risk).

Cons: The fans are kind of loud but when I'm gaming I don't notice. The fans blow out the back and also vents on the bottom which makes it a little hard to just set it on my lap and game. The last kinda con is the battery only lasts like an hour when I'm gaming but it makes sense the graphics card really sucks up the juice.

Other Thoughts: This is the best gaming laptop that I have had the privilege of using and if you game on a budget and if you can spend a little more I would suggest this computer.
