No-frills gaming. The FX502VM offers nearly everything that comes with the GL502VM without significantly impacting performance. The SKU with the lowest-end TN display, however, should be avoided due to its very poor contrast.
ASUS FX502 Gaming Laptop Quick Review
Source: Yugatech English
The ASUS FX502 is a looker in terms of physique and form factor — it’s got a nice brushed metal look commonly seen on high-end gaming laptops and has great color accents. Its back-lit keyboard is also a plus for gaming even at night. Stereo speakers are effective and can be an alternative to wearing headphones.

ASUS FX502VM review – an outcast Republic of Gamers laptop
Source: Laptop Media English
All in all, the FX502VM is a powerful gaming notebook with impressive hardware for the asking price but as with every performance-centric laptop, you will have to make some serious sacrifices along the way. And this time, it’s not about build quality. In fact, the FX502VM is quite on par with the recently reviewed ASUS ROG GL502VS as they both share the same design concept and materials. Also, the FX502VM is surprisingly thin and relatively portable. Yes, sure we would have really appreciated a more premium selection of materials but let’s not get too picky.

Asus FX502VM Review (I5-6300HQ, GTX 1060 3GB)
Source: Gaming Laptops Junky English
The basic FX502VM is a nice machine for gaming for the price of $900-$950 (with discounts) in terms of performance/price ratio and in terms of thermal performance. The I5-6300HQ CPU is pretty good choice to go along with such a GPU for gaming. If you are after some heavy rendering, an I7 will probably be faster, but for gamers it’s not that important, plus it is considerably less hot. However it lacks some key features that might be important for some people. No Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.1gen2, USB Type-C ports and also, only 1xM.2 SATA connection for M.2 storage (along 2.5″ bay). If these are dealbreakers for you. don’t get it. Secondly, the basic display is really rubbish – it might hurt your eyes if you’ll use it for too long too much. However, it is replaceable.

Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems.

Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
