Asus GL552JX Laptop Review

 

Stylish design and good build Anti-glare 1080p display Can be upgraded Good gaming performance

Poor battery life Not very portable Based on an older platform

The Asus GL552JX is priced at Rs. 80,990, which is about Rs. 10,000 more than its "budget-minded" sibling. We feel that if you're ready to spend a lot of money on a gaming laptop anyway then you might as well pony up a bit more and get the ROG version...
