Reviews for the Asus GL551JM-DH71

60% Asus Republic of Gamers GL551
Source: Computer Shopper English
We might be reaching the point where gaming laptops are no longer overpriced behemoths, but fairly affordable desktop replacements that also happen to be good for gamers on the go. The 15.6-inch Asus Republic of Gamers GL551 looks promising in a stealthy or modest way, but proves to be just an average—if very affordable—gaming laptop.

70% The best entry-level gaming laptop available

Save for the display, the Asus GL551 is a sweet package for its $1,099 price tag. Nothing about this portable rig screams budget machine. In fact, there's much more apparent Republic of Gamers branding, if anything. For the price, the GL551 delivers above average gaming performance with plenty of oomph to get gamers through the sooty plains of Mordor or the heavy metal war of Titanfall. Even with the subpar screen, I would suggest you pick the Asus GL551 over the Lenovo Y50. Having reviewed both laptops, I can say they share similarly terrible displays, and the only thing the Y50 has going for it is its brushed aluminum body. Meanwhile, the Asus machine ekes out just as much performance for a matching price, with a better battery life to boot.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M: Upper mid-range graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). 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.  
4710HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.5 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


65%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
