Asus G501VW-FY081T Notebook Review


Compact gamer. The thin gaming notebook from Asus can convince with good features as well as measurements. The lack of an Ethernet port is unusual for a gaming notebook, but the device has a Thunderbolt 3 port instead.

matte IPS screen ; Full-HD panel ; SSD + HDD ; good battery runtimes ; nice chassis ; Thunderbolt 3

no Ethernet port

The G501W from Asus is a nice and thin gaming notebook with a 15.6-inch screen. The processor provides more than enough performance for all common applications. It is usually a quiet and cool device in practice. A fast SSD ensures a responsive system...

ASUS ROG G501VW review: An excellent laptop, if you don't mind the heat


At Rs 96,000, the ASUS G501VW is not a cheap toy. Justifying that price however are beefy specs and a UHD display, both packed into a relatively slim—for a gaming laptop—form factor and lightweight body. But is it the best one for you? Let's find out.

The ASUS G501VW offers a good package at its price point. The display is great, the SSD is phenomenal and the laptop isn't actually that thick or heavy for a gaming device. The thermal throttling issues and quiet speakers take away a lot from the...

Asus ROG G501VW


Thin, light, powerful

Matte display ; Metal construction ; Slim and Light ; Supports 1080p gaming

Only 512GB of hard drive space

The Asus ROG G501VW is very good gaming laptop if your priorities include a slim and light device. At Rs. 95,490, you can’t get a slimmer or lighter gaming laptop in India.

Excellent Laptop - Great Performance to Price Ratio!


- Multiple torx screws (T4) + removal of 2 Phillips screws under rubber feet to upgrade to SSD and add more RAM. - Power key is integrated into the keyboard

- Thin, Light, solid aluminum construction. - Good battery life (~5 to 6 hours of productivity) - Quiet when using routine applications - I really like the design of the laptop - Quick Core i7 procesor for moderate video editing + graphics work

- Need to install SSD to utilize full system performance the HDD is very slow (5400 RPM). I used a Samsung EVO 850 500GB M.2 drive and it makes a huge difference in speed! - Arrow key layout is a bit cramped, but gets the job done. - Fingerprint magnet...

Great Laptop


All in all, this laptop is quite the option for anyone looking for a powerhouse laptop yet also looking for a very sleek and lightweight design. The negative factors do not contribute enough for an egg loss because the laptop can be cleaned and the...

After recently upgrading laptops, the Asus ROG G501VW laptop is outstanding. Being very lightweight and sleek, this laptop is a powerhouse that includes a GTX 960M graphics card, a quad-core i7 Skylake processor, 8 gigs of DDR4 memory, and a beautiful...

There are only two negative comments that I have experienced with this laptop. The first is that the laptop is a fingerprint and dust magnet. The oil from my fingers are visible and the dust accumulates on the laptop quickly. The second is that the...

Good Price and Upgradeable Laptop


- supports Thunderbolt 3 for external Graphic cards - spends extra 200 for SSD 500GB and 16GB RAM - Very nice IPS display screen

- low quality screws on the back cover, you have to replace them during the upgrade or these screw will give you headache. - speakers are just only acceptable.

10/10 Would Recommend


There is an empty slot for 16gb of DDR4 ram to add. There is also an empty M.2 SSD slot. I added a 256Gb samsung 950 pro PCIe 4 NVMe. Used the cloning software and removed the HDD (could not get the OS off the HDD). This was a huge upgrade and has the...

Got this laptop on the initial sale for $800. Great deal, fast skylake i7 processor, 8 gb of DDR4 ram. Screen looks great, I don't need 4k and I am not sure if the Nvidia 960M could handle a 4k display anyway. Keys have good travel space, decent...

HDD 5400 rpm is slow. you notice it when you turn it on.Despite being thin, the laptop 15.6- screen makes the laptop large and tough to travel withI have not been able to get the fast charging USB 3.0 on the left to work effectively on my phone...

Really awesome laptop


This computer is pretty fresh on the US market as of the time of me writing this review. I did not purchase this from newegg only because I got the hard drive swapped out for a 1TB SSD and kept the HDD as a data drive. However the place I got the...

- Fast, Very Fast - Great Video Card - Excellent battery life for a high performance Windows laptop - Very thin and light

- The material used is a fingerprint magnet, not really a con for me but some people I guess it might be a turn off.
