Great laptop - Don't listen to the bad reviews. && Black Ops game offer is a scam
Pros: Laptop RGB lights is nice. Booting is fast, takes from 3 to 7 seconds. Speakers are loud and good.
Cons: Fan gets noisy under heavy load but can be set up in silent mode Laptop can be heavy sometimes. Unwanted programs such as mcafee. COD4 Black Ops promotion is a scam. Laptop is ineligible for the promotion when running the app that redeems a code
Overall Review: I bought this laptop at 1,700$CAD and was the best model with the best hardware for the price. 256 GB SSD and 1 TB, huge 17.3 screen & 120 hz refresh rate, nearly the same as a 144hz screen. This i7 CPU is the best in the market for laptops in this price range. The GPU can handle most games especially with the 6gb vram. I would recommend this laptop to anyone for the price I paid for. It increased lately so I would check if there's something better out there but the specs don't lie. The hardware on this machine is crazy for the price. I've been looking for models for weeks and this one has the best deal hands down. The only thing that sucked is the reviews and wasn't so sure about it. This product is good. If there are bugs, they're most likely software related and you can fix them by updating the firmware, bios and other. The promotion for COD4 does not work. Careful when buying this product. It says it is eligible but the application that comes with the laptop says otherwise. Therefore, you do NOT receive a redeem code for this product. I tried contacting support for asus promotion but they do not answer. I would put a lower rating because of this but this product needs more love and it doesn't need a bad review for something that is not hardware or software related. It's just a promotion that is bugged and needs to be fixed. The laptop itself is a beast.
