The Best Gaming Laptop I Had so Far 1/3/2020 8:17:23 AM

Pros: - Really strong specs. I got the i7 9th gen processor, RTX 2060, 16 GB ram, 512 SSD storage (this could have been more to be honest).
- Amazing cooling like I've never seen in a laptop. The fans are strong and it helps that the chassis opens up to allow even more hot air to escape.
- I had no problem playing any of the demanding titles on this laptop. It handles them without breaking a sweat.
- It's really good for work on the go as well. It blends in, doesn't stand out as too "gamery" which is good if you don't want to get robbed while moving around :D
- The screen is of a decent size and the colours are sharp. The details just jump out of the screen.

Some things that people found to be a con, but are a pro for me:
- No camera integrated into the screen. But you get a full HD camera in the box that you can easily clip to the screen - or put on your desk with the little stand included. I actually prefer this as I was never a big fan of laptop cameras. You take it out when you need it, and when you don't, you don't have to worry about covering the top of your screen!
- The keyboard placement at the front is a pro. It's extremely smooth to type on. And I don't think anyone games on their lap anyway because you need your mouse and controls. And if I have to do some typing then I do it on a desk anyway. The placement means your keyboard rarely gets hot.
- The num/track pad - oh this is the future right there! I can't explain how much I love this addition. Some people mentioned it sucks for left handed people. Well I AM a leftie but I don't have any problem with it. I can navigate it just fine. And for more precision I use my mouse anyway.

Cons: Not many cons to be honest.
- The fans can get really loud on the Turbo setting but that is to be expected. They won't bother you if you like white noise because that's what they sound like.
- It's a freaking fingerprint magnet like some people mentioned. I cannot touch it, lift it, open it or do anything at all without leaving prints all over the place. I have to keep handling it with a microfibre cloth, or gloves, like a criminal. I hope they can fix this in future Zephyruses.

Overall Review: - I would 100% recommend this laptop! I tested it out while travelling, and even though it's a tad on the heavy side, it wasn't a bother at all. I could easily carry it in my Osprey Fairview 40 backpack, with the charger and mouse and all.
- Delivery was also extremely fast. I live in Ireland and ordered the laptop from the US. I ordered it on Sunday night, and received it on Thursday afternoon safe and sound, which is a freaking miracle!

Dear Junber A,

It's unfortunate to hear you're not completely satisfied with your laptop. Are you experiencing any difficulties with your laptop that would reflect the 3-egg review? Please note, the GX701GV-PB74 does feature G-Sync. To verify try right-clicking on your desktop followed by selecting NVIDIA Control Panel under Display you should see Set up G-SYNC. For more detail regarding global warranty please reach out to me at cl-adrian@asus.com. Your case for reference is N191230300.

Thank you for choosing ASUS!

Performance Problem 12/4/2019 12:00:41 PM

Overall Review: It’s not performing like it should with the specs it has, performing less than at half of what this machine should be capable of. I’ll first be contacting ASUS to see if there’s anything they can do to fix it and if not, I’ll be asking for a full refund and spending the money elsewhere.

I'm sorry to hear that you are experiencing poor performance on your machine. All ASUS products undergo intensive quality control, testing and inspections.

I look forward to helping you troubleshoot in more detail.

Powerful gaming laptop with poor battery life 11/8/2019 4:43:40 PM

Pros: Sleek design
Great display
Powerful components for high fps gaming
decent cooling system given the form factor

Cons: Maybe this is just my unit in particular but the battery on this laptop is HORRIBLE. I cant get more than 2 hours out of it in Optimus mode running with the lowest fan speeds doing absolutely nothing (no videos/youtube/music just browsing the computer around).

Overall Review: I would not recommend this laptop unless my unit is defective and others actually get in the realm of 3+ hours battery life under light usage.

Love this Laptop 11/4/2019 2:43:45 AM

Pros: Easy Set up
Runs easy
Turns on fast
Plays games like a dream

Cons: Runs hot

Overall Review: This laptop is well made and beautiful. All i can say is I really do love it. It does run hot after using it for too long, especially during game play. I would recommend a laptop stand with a fan to help keep it balanced and to get it to last longer.

First time buying a Gaming Laptop! 11/2/2019 8:30:52 AM

Pros: -The position of the keyboard helps a lot when gaming . I can play for 4+ hours comfortably without getting my hands warm.
-Thermals are decent compared to other gaming laptops.
-Weighs 2.7 kg's.
-Insane Performance: Used to own a gaming pc that had an intel i7 7700 and an EVGA GTX 1080 Graphics card. I bought this laptop since i wanted a laptop that could produce similar performance as my previous system.
-G-Sync!!! (Make sure you have the latest Nvidia drivers installed. Also, change your graphics mode from Optimus to Discrete Graphics in the ASUS ARMOURY CRATE app as this will boost performance when gaming)

Cons: -Not sure if anyone had this problem but the Wi-Fi signal is very poor on this laptop.
-Took me a couple of days to get used to the keyboard.
-Gets a bit loud when gaming (as expected). This can be solved by wearing a headset.

Overall Review: If you're looking for amazing performance and decent thermals in a machine then this laptop is definitely for you.
