Asus GL702VM-GC102D Notebook Review

 

Slim gaming laptop. Asus packs a lot of gaming power into a slim 17.3-inch notebook. Even so, the laptop does not produce too much noise or heat. Due to the deactivated integrated GPU, the laptop consumes more power while idling than necessary.

Matte IPS screen ; Full HD resolution ; G-Sync ; Plenty of storage ; Unoccupied M.2 slot ; Thunderbolt 3

iGPU deactivated ; No full Turbo exhaustion ; Relatively high power consumption in idle state ; The click pad doesn't always function properly

With the GL702VM, Asus offers a relatively slim 17.3-inch gaming notebook. But, do not be fooled by the slim exterior; the laptop packs a good dose of processing power. A quad-core Core i7 and Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1060 graphics core form a duo which...

Asus ROG Strix GL702VM (GTX 1060, Core i5, G-Sync)

 

The latest gaming laptop from Asus looks the part, and it pairs its smart design with a price designed to undercut many of its rivals. The ROG Strix GL702VM costs just £1,200, which makes it hundreds of pounds cheaper than many other gaming notebooks.

This machine is inevitably built with compromise in mind, but the Asus gets it right in key departments. The GTX 1060 is an excellent mid-range GPU, the screen has the ideal resolution and G-Sync alongside decent quality, and the processor is capable.

Asus ROG Strix GL702VM review

 

Aside from an issue with the trackpad, it's easy to recommend this gaming laptop. Here's our Asus ROG Strix GL702VM review

We have just one issue with the Asus ROG Strix GL702V: its trackpad does some strange things, most likely because of driver issues. Operating under the assumption this can or will be fixed, this is a great gaming laptop. It’s not incredibly expensive...

Asus ROG Strix GL702VM

 

Asus's ROG Strix brand is the company's way of producing quality mid-range gaming hardware without the extreme performance – or price tag – of the pure ROG machines. The GL702VM is a clear mid-range machine, undercutting its rivals while still...

Shocking Speed! Great technology!

Red Keyboard signs, so White Colour is better in Night but is OK. Price is very High for this performance. I spend extra £160 for RAM upgrade to 32Gb.
