I have to thank clairview bestbuy for helping me out. Needed to update my laptop and wanted to get away from dell. I got this laptop and oh my god its awsome and it was on sale! Red light up keybord screen looks great. Super fast on games and i can do my homework at the same time as playing my game. 10/10

Bought during boxing week

Very good bang for your buck. Does an outstanding job handling the graphics on all the Steam games I play. Dropped McAfee antivirus, which was pre-installed for Windows Defender instead (included). Best Buys' version of this laptop comes with 12gb RAM but can be easily upgraded to 16gb in the "upgrades" hatch on the laptops underside (check online for videos on how to do this or pay a computer shop). I've had no issues so far with the laptop itself. The casing looks great with its aluminum top. The screen is decent but could be better. However, it's well worth the price compared to other gaming laptops. The Asus warranty is also really good, covering things like accidental spills for a year. Had to download a fix for the pre-installed NVIDIA software. Wait for a sale.

Laptops been great!

Laptop has great build quality, and has been great for the games I play (League of Legends, Overwatch, etc). Also has a great screen and the backlit keyboard looks great in the dark. Only con I would have about the laptop is the 2GB of VRAM but it's nothing major, as it just means that some games won't run that well unless settings are tuned down.

Do Not Buy!!

The laptop gave me so many problems, had a enough of it and just ended up returning it after 2 days.

  • from Toronto, ON

Good laptop. Poor battery life.

Love this laptop so far. Most problems were with Windows 10, not with the laptop. One issue though - battery life is mediocre at the best of times and horrible when using it the way you would want to (high brightness on keyboard and screen, Bluetooth on, apps running etc.). And the battery drains in sleep mode (still looking for a fix to this). But the screen is great and so far everything runs fast and I love the keyboard. Considering the low cost I got it for I'm quite happy with this purchase.

Awful laptop.

I wouldn't recommend buying this laptop at all, absolutely trash. The hard drive has insane amount of issues, with nothing running in background or foreground the disk constantly runs at 98% disk usage. The laptop also feels very cheap and seems like would break very quickly. Computer memory also seems to run very right while only running task manager.

  • from Winnipeg, MB


Absolutely terrible laptop, way too many problems. The hard drive is not working properly and the RAM has major issues. The laptop is running only task manager and running at 99% disk and 30% or higher for memory and the cpu is constantly running above 50% while only running task manager and nothing else is running in the background. Then the so called geek squad employee had stated thats completely fine meanwhile it takes approx 1 minute for just documents to open up and fully load. The sleep mode isnt working properly, every time in sleep mode the laptop reboots. also all the updates were done just to make sure it wasn't the updates interfering with it. I have had the laptop for 2 days and its garbage.

I didn't think a computer could be so bad!

I was surprised at the number of problems I had with this laptop since in my experience, ASUS products have usually been well-made. With a slow and bloated Windows 10 pre-installed, a heavy and hot laptop, long start-up time, and incompatibility with some Windows 8 drivers--in case you were thinking of just downgrading, this laptop offers very little for something that costs so much. On top of it, just tonight, the flimsy power jack on the laptop broke. I'm definitely not impressed and would not recommend this product to anyone looking for a reliable laptop.

  • from Mississauga, ON

overall good but with horrible issues

returned it twice, once was because the screen was blinking and the other time was it powering down on its own. Decided to stop trying my luck and didn't buy the next. Despite this I did like the specs, price and setup.

Works great! May need to make a few tweaks here and there but if you know what you're doing, it works like a charm.

  • from Prince Albert

Worst laptop ever!

I have returned 3 of these in the last 2 weeks! Hardware issues, bad RAM, bad harddrive...... The list goes on and on. I was told my ASUS to return 3 times now! Called GEEKS tonight because it keeps telling me that it is not plugged in properly. So, tonight they did a BIOS update. Now the backlight is not working and no amount of trying has gotten it to work again. I think they tried to hard on this laptop and ruined something in the making. 3 times in a row proves this is just a plain bad model! Don't buy unless you like to spend hours online with ASUS live chat or Geeksquad. They all know my name by heart now. :(

good value

the computer is fast and plays the modern games, the key board types nicely, and it's not to heavy on my lap, gives off heat, but only on one side and not down onto my leg.

  • from Victoria, BC

Good gaming experience, but this PC is slow

I used this to play moonblade, a video card burner game, and its performance has been steady so far. But the laptop itself has way too many products I dun need, and it gives lots of unexpected stuns.... (I only installed one game... and one browzer - chrome) Other than that, the gaming experience is pretty decent, worth the money if you want a gaming laptop.

A great gaming laptop

It has high speed,great gtx 960m and nice hdd.

  • from Bancroft

My Opinion

The laptop is great. It was easy to understand, set up and use. If your starting a new life or your a gamer by heart and hand I would highly suggest this one for you. The only thing that could improve it are louder speakers. The speakers are great but I love my music loud.

Asus laptop

  • from Calgary, AB

Keeps freezing up

Computer keeps freeing up even when staring it up for the first time. Returning this computer.... Dont get will be miserable.

Speed Kills

Fast and reliable PC for gamers and media editors but a little heavier than the slimmer competitors.
