Exceptional laptop

A marked step up from previous Strix Scar 1 models. Everything is butter smooth and works as it should...no issues thusfar. Fingerprints on keyboard surround hardly show now, fans (if/when they turn on) are quiet and unobtrusive. Wish they had this exact model in a 17 incher!

Wait for a sale

Pros: GTX 1060 is very capable. I was getting 70+ fps on high/ultra settings for the latest titles. Cons: Price High temperatures and loud fans. I think the cons are a reality of thin and light gaming laptops, so I wouldn't let it sway your decision. I decided that the cost and time required to maintain this beast wasn't worth it for me, however. I returned it for a cheaper alternative. It might be worthwhile to wait for a sale on GTX laptops as manufacturers roll out the new RTX series.

Absolutely Incredible

This is my first true gaming laptop. I upgraded recently to the Asus ROG Strix Scar II and wow what a difference. It runs amazing for any games I want to play and is super fast like next level fast. Heat is never a major issue at all and during heavy load game sessions I have never seen more than 75 celcius on the GPU or the CPU cores. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to do gaming on absolute maxed out settings as the combo of the i7 8750H and NVIDIA GTX1060 with 16GB RAM gets the job done no problem!! *Disclosure Statement* I am receiving points in the ROG Elite Rewards Loyalty Program for my review.

Great performer!

Bought this thing before Christmas when it went on sale. Initially I had some issues with performance: lots of hickups/lockups. The CallofDuty game that came with the purchase didn't want to play, and keyboard lighting problems. I was almost gonna return it but then I did a full factory reset, went on Asus site and manually upgraded all drivers and now runs smoothly like nothing I've had before. Keyboard lighting is good, game plays phenomenal, and haven't had one lockup in 3 weeks. The fan, really??, I find it is very quiet in normal use compared to my old laptop. Sure it gets loud during heavy game play but that's expected in a power laptop; you want good game play and good cpu cooling, not cpu throttling to happen. The only drawback I find, and perhaps to my regret, is that it does not come with Thunderbolt 3. Otherwise so far it would make it a 5/5.

Great Laptop

This laptop is a great choice for gaming and doing things at fast speeds. The SSD is speedy, while the hybrid drive is on the slower side at times. Yes, there is coil whine. Personally, I don't care about this too much since I'm always wearing a headset in a noisy room anyways. If you have noise around you, honestly who cares? The fans do kick on if you are installing software while the laptop is unplugged. The reason for this is obviously the laptop having a newer processor and good components that need to be kept cool. Installing programs should be done while the laptop is plugged-in. On idle or when watching videos and such, the laptop is quiet (Especially in silent mode of course). The screen is amazing -- playing games with 1920 x 1080 graphics at 144hz is a beautiful sight to see in my opinion. I can run all of my games on highest settings with no lag or other issues. Overall, this laptop is better than what people are reviewing it from what I see. Don't expect something computer-grade or similar to laptops with less power. Yes, the fans will kick on when doing intense stuff (especially unplugged) and yes, there is coil whine but when ignored, this laptop is great.

Coil whine in yet another ROG laptop! C'mon Asus!

The device is quite good. Design wise it definitely beats anyone out there, maybe except Razer's Macbook ripoffs. The screen is decent with only 90% of sRGB support. Nice sturdy keyboard, with wired physical mouse buttons below touchpad, which is not clickable, really? Good performance, compared to the entire gl703 line up its shows best performance with similar hardware. Good NVMe SSD by WD, not the best out there though. What may turn you away from the purchase is the coil whine, which plagues all ROG laptops of their current lineup. In most cases its very bad. As for the fan noises it not really as bad as other comments suggest, under light to normal usage it rarely fires the fans, PS, illustrator, run at lowest spins. Under heavy load such as gaming and 3d renders there will be more noise, which is expected. However realistically coil whine is what you will be hearing most of the time, as even the fans are not as loud as that.

Decent laptop but noisy and overpriced

I picked this laptop up for the 144hz screen. It's silky smooth but only 1080p if you can live with that. What ruined it for me was the noise this thing makes. Even web browsing or checking emails triggered the fans to go nuts even in silent mode. It ended up driving me crazy. It also lacks windows hello or a touchscreen. It also kills the possibility of a gpu upgrade with an external unit down the road since it has no thunderbolt 3 support. The screen is nice but you will have to lower game settings to take advantage of it as a 1060 is gonna be hard pressed to feed 144hz at ultra settings. The whole package feels a bit overpriced for me considering you can buy the razer and Dell laptops of equivalent features and with thunderbolt 3 touchscreen etc for a similar price. Bring your earplugs if you use this in a classroom or in a quiet place. Gotta love bestbuy for their return policy though. Mine went back to the store.

The Fan is terrible

I just got my laptop and installed my programming software and guess what ? .. The fan started making a big noise in the middle of the class and everybody started laughing. I tried to use the Rog Gaming center and I could not modify the fan speed to Silent. Searching on internet it says that I have to install a keyboard software and I worked ... after 4 days working on my computer, even the fan is in silent, started again the noise ... so I guess I am going to take it back...

AMAZING

If you love the latest design and fantastic RBG lighting then buy this Gaming laptop! The screen looks amazing with the thin bezel and the RBG lighting on the front light bar make this look absolutely sick!
