Terrible.

Pros: Pretty backlight keyboard. That's about it.

Cons: Where to start? Horrible sound, way worst sound than my 8 years old laptop, when playing music, volume goes up and down noticeably on its own. Hard drive makes a very slight and quick, but noticeably noise, which is annoying and worrying. This noise happens at random times, sometimes when opening a file or program, sometimes out of the blue. It makes you feel that it will die any time. Numpad keyboard waaayy too small, if you have big fingers and you type a lot of numbers, you will have problems, you will be pressing 2 keys at once, for example 4 and 5. Trackpad sloppy at best, sometimes it just quits working for 2 or 3 seconds, very, very frustrating. Got so frustrated that I didn't try any games or heavy software, can't comment on that.

Other Thoughts: All of the above is unacceptable for a $1200 computer. I'm guessing I got a lemon here. This is going back to Newegg immediately.
UPDATE: Computer has less than 4 hours of use. It just got worst. After you power on the computer and just browse the internet for about 20 minutes, there is a STEADY CONSTANT noise which I presume comes from the hard drive. It is not loud, but is very annoying and worrying. The closer you put your ear to the keyboard, the more noticeably it is. This noise also happens if you delete your files (just what I was doing to ship this laptop back to Newegg).

Manufacturer Response:
Hello Hernan,


Thank you for taking the time to share your review with us. I am sorry to hear that you were not completely satisfied with your device. Try updating your bios to the latest version along with reinstalling your audio and ATK drivers. When that is done reinstall your touchpad drivers and the Asus Smart Gesture utility. If you have any product inquiries you can reach a 24/7 live chat agent or you contact me via email at cl-tom@asus.com.


Thank you for choosing ASUS
Best Regards,
Tom

Great laptop, really is the sweet spot for the money.

Pros: Given that it's a gaming laptop it still has a simplistic design and well built. Performance is really good. I use it for business but my son already loaded some games and it ran them flawlessly.

Screen really pops, a lot better than my 22 LCD at my office. Text is sharp and colors a vivid. Track pad is OK I don't use it much but the few times I did no complaints. Keyboard is good type on and I really like the rainbow lights.

Battery is battery than expected, for office work with the screen dimmed a bit I get 4-5 hrs.

Cons: Keys on the number pad are too small. My other 17" laptop had regular size keys.

Zero key on the number pad needs to be double width, really cumbersome using the number pad without looking. I keep hitting the up arrow key and messes up my workflow.

They should reduce the size of the right CTRL key which I never use and move over the arrow keys and enlarge the zero key.

Other Thoughts: Other then the number pad situation it's a really is a good laptop. I would buy again.

Excellent Machine (Touchpad issues may be due to Windows)

Pros: Fast
6 CORES
Beautiful Screen
Nice touch keyboard
RGB Keyboard lighting
Sleek design
Excellent graphics card for medium/high settings
Battery life 4 hours which is expected given horse power

Cons: Touchpad jitters and slows down 30% of the time. Don't know if it's Windows but will ping Asus if issue persists.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded the nvme to 500gb and the harddrive to a 1tb SSHD. Running smooth as butter!
