GL502VS - Wide View Panel

Beautiful Wide View Panel

ROG Strix GL502 utilizes a FHD 15-inch panel matching its compact design. The display can be seen clearly up to 160° thanks to its wide view panel so there's hardly any color shift even when you're viewing it from extreme positions.

Smooth gaming is enhanced by NVIDIA G-SYNC, a display technology that synchronizes display refresh rates to the GPU in your GL502, eliminating screen tearing and minimizing display stutter and input lag.

Intelligent Thermal Design

The Hyper Cool Duo-Copper cooling system uses heat pipes and a dual fan system to cool the CPU and GPU independently. This design maximizes cooling efficiency to give ROG Strix GL502 the stability required for intense gaming marathons.

Could have been amazing Review by ppaulick
Well, I had very high hopes for this machine. The 1070 can be a pretty amazing card, however... Under heavy load, the 180w AC adapter is unable to keep up, and you'll notice a slow battery drain while gaming. Once it starts pulling off the battery, it will also start to throttle down the CPU and GPU. Asus needs to figure out what the issue is here, because it appears to be pretty wide spread. The Asus ROG forums have plenty of posts regarding it. In the interim, I'd suggest staying away from this machine and finding another. (Posted on 11/20/2016)
Best value lightweight gaming laptop for 2016 Review by TanoSkywalker
I usually switch my laptop every year and came across with the nVidia GeForce Series 10 this year. I have used several standard size gaming laptops (Like MSI GT series) but I decided to switch to light weight model since I need to carry it around a lot. I checked around for several options and decided on this one.
If you want to buy a lightweight gaming laptop, this is literally the best option you can pick take into account that ASUS has a good reputation on the gaming laptop market.

+ Light weight
+ Decent build quality for the price
+ Run pretty cool even under load.
+ NVMe Samsung SSD 950 (OEM) for the stock SSD - blazing fast
+ Small and light power adapter compare to other brand.
+ The keyboard typing feeling is a bit dull, not really clicky.
+ Touchpad needs awhile to get used to.
+ Only has one 3.5 mm jack for headset combo (which is not very standard consider most laptop have at least 2: one for speaker and one for microphone)

A little bit about Computer Upgrade King service:

First, I would say about the positive side: they are very fast when it come to communication and respond to email. I use forwarding mail service so I asked if they can put the gist gamepad inside the shipping package so I will only have to receive one package at the warehouse.

On the negative side: I would be more than please if only they actually manage to do it. I think there is some miscommunication in the process so my gift gamepad actually came before the laptop. I was a bit troublesome to me since I need to pay extra for package consolidation. I checked the packing slip and clearly saw the note there so I think the person who actually did the shipping made a mistake and didn’t look at the note.

Overall, I think CUK try their best to please the customer but people make mistake sometime. Anyway, I just want to leave a honest review on that regard. Thank Tyler for assisting me with that request!

The Cheapest Gtx 1070 laptop you can buy Review by Cody
I bought this laptop because it appeared to offer the cheapest route to gaining access to a gtx 1070 equipped notebook. Overall it seemed like a decent 15" laptop, relatively thin and lightweight considering the hardware contained within. However I felt the touchpad was a little inaccurate and the lack of dedicated left and right click buttons has always bothered me on these kinds of touchpads. Additionally, the overall build quality and aesthetic design is rather average.

Unfortunately, in my particular case I had issues with Microsoft Office crashing and lagging that I couldn't sort out and there was a minor physical defect as well so I decided to make a return between those issues and my slight dissatisfaction with the touchpad and build quality. As a side note, I really appreaciate CUK's service and prices and will likely be buying the ROG G752VS from CUK instead to replace this.

Regardless, I imagine my issues with this laptop were relatively isolated to my specific experience, so if you're looking to get something light and relatively cheap for its power, it's a good pick, just not quite up to the premium feel of its bigger and more expensive cousin, the G752VS.
