no touch screen on a laptop with a full keyboard? FUCK THIS I’M OUT! I GARBAGE! 😛 jk

Saturday I got the ASUS ROG STRIX GL553VW I wanted to get a MSI but the store did not have it and I also wanted the ASUS ROG GL552VW but the store stopped selling it but so I bought the GL553VW its good same specs as the GL552VW

LoL I have this laptop by with 12 gb RAM. I waiting six months to buy a gaming laptop and I oringinally wanted to buy a MSI because it had a CD drive but remembering my first laptop is a Asus that’s six years old and still running perfectly I bought this one and best part is it was on sale from 1300 to 899. So I saved alot of money and I am enjoying this laptop!

Un Known says:

So I always hear heat is a problem for a laptop’s life, do they heat up due to intense games or just regular usage? (I heard it’s due to desktop parts being put on a much smaller laptop case thus I’m not trying to get a 1060 on a laptop, I would like mobile parts (i7-6700HQ, 970M) instead of (i7-6700, 1060) I plan on playing CS:GO on Ultra. I am trying to not spend more than 1k, and I would get a desktop as I know they’re better, but I really need the portability for high school, to write English papers in class. I’m also into photo and video editing, and would like to do some slight gaming as I said above, so would this be a good recommendation for me?

The Wild Goose says:

Is the amazon site he put in the description legit?

Murat Alkeev says:

Gtx 1070M??? It is on 1070 without actually

Wait, wait wait. A GTX 1070 can’t run overwatch at over 60 fps!!! Is this accurate

Ernesto Castellanos says:

Hey Dave! I have gotten the 502 VS version and wondered if I can stick an external GPU to it and if so, how? Or anyone who knows. Thanks!

abbz120 says:

would it be possible to upgrade the 970m in the future with a 1070m or something?

Uptown Wedding Photography NJ says:

Can you tell me the levels of accuracy for the sRGB and Adobe RGB? I couldn’t make it out. I need something accurate for photo editing…Thanks…


Chinaski says:
