15.6 ASUS ROG STRIX G531GU, FHD, 120Hz, IPS-Level, i5 9300H, 16GB DDR4, 512GB NVMe SSD, 6GB GTX 1660 Ti, GbE/ac, Win10 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great budget gaming laptop that will see you well for years A lot of laptops these days suffer from high internal temperatures due to increasingly more powerful GPUs and CPUs being put into them, and we all know that components that run high temp constantly arent going to last as long. I've also heard of some laptops getting so hot that some areas will actually burn your finger if you linger on them too much! Seeing as I dont have tons of spare cash laying around to replace laptops every couple of years, a laptop that has good heat distribution was a must, and after lots of research, I settled on the ASUS ROG STRIX G531GU! There is a large air intake along the top rear of the laptop, a handy space between the screen and the chassis for maximum air flow, and inside there are more copper heat pipes you can shake a stick at! I've been very pleased so far with the temperatures, and coupled with a cooling pad, I'm confident this laptop will last years. As for the components im very impressed with what you get for the price. The i5 9300H is more than enough for gaming and light image/video editing and the 1660ti is a beast of a graphics card which will stay relevant for years. The 16gb of RAM is a nice touch as well. The only downside is the screen is not the most vibrant I've seen. I believe it only represents between 60-70% of the RGB colour space, and I think this is where the rog strix is able to cut costs. Therefore I wouldn't recommend this for professional image and video editing, especially coupled with the slightly less powerful CPU, but for some amateur work it's fine. For gaming though it's great and I have no complaints whatsoever in this department. Also the hardrive is slightly on the small side, especially if you'll be downloading lots of games, but the M.2 drive is easily upgradeable and that is what I've done, and used the 512gb hardrive that comes with the laptop as an extra external drive. I cant stress enough how fast an M.2 hardrive is which is a massive plus, you can copy gigabytes in a matter of seconds not minutes. Overall this laptop is incredible! Powerful components, great cooling, and affordable. I cant recommend it enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the best value for money laptop out there So to begin I'll just say what type of user I am - I'm an engineering student that uses this laptop for CAD software and moderate gaming After detailed research on what I should get and about a gazillion reviews, I started to lose the will to live but that's when I accidentally stumbled upon this laptop and boy what a happy accident it was..So let's begin the review... Pros: - Despite the chassis being entirely made of plastic, it is extremely sturdy and strong. The laptop looks more premium than it actually is to the point it looks on the level of Alienware. Hinges are thin but somehow provide a lot of resistance and don't look like they'll break or damage at all - Screen is great, very good quality with great colours and gets quite bright - Mousepad is one of the best I've used on a laptop - GTX 1660 Ti is a beast and handles anything you throw at it - Extremely fast boot time - 2.3 seconds from pressing the button to reaching your start page. Same for when you shut it down - The RGB lights and keyboard are something I didn't realise I needed in my life. - Speakers are really good, especially for a laptop - Fans are very quiet and even under load are not particularly loud - Keyboard keys have sufficient travel and feel nice to the touch - they were easy and quick to get used to. Now the Cons: - Battery life. By far the most disappointing aspect of this laptop, the most I could juice out was around 4.5 hours and that was with all power-saver features on and minimum brightness. - The charger. That thing is a brick. If you throw it at someone, they'll definitely be breaking something. - Weight. While the weight adds a premium factor to the laptop along with how the case is designed, the laptop itself is not exactly on the portable scale. It can be carried in your bag of course but it's going to be heavy, especially with the brick charger as well. - i5 processor is definitely fast but but you can see the difference if you've experienced the new i7 and i9 processors. Then again for the price point I definitely think it's worth the lower level processor. - ASUS Aura app is a little weird to use but then again that's just me... Miscellaneous: - I can't decide where to put this so I'll just say it here - the mousepad has a designated num pad as well. You press the top right of the mousepad and the num pad comes up. It's been useful but at the same time there were occasions I accidentally pressed it with my fat fingers so just letting people know... Overall conclusion? Yes, there are better laptops out there but after having searched every single review and website to find one, I can say that this is one of the best if not THE best laptops when it comes to price:performance:value ratio. Why pay nearly 2k when you can get something only very slightly inferior for half the price?

Questions & Answers

Does the 16gb of memory come in 2x8gb or single 16gb?

Asked by: Skeppers
When I look in task manager, under the performance tab, it says the memory is using 2 out of 4 slots. From this we can assume that it is 2x 8GB
