Source: PC Mag Archive.org version
The Asus TUF Gaming FX504G pairs a 1080p IPS display and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti power at an aggressive price. It's a solid budget gaming laptop, but suffers from short battery life.

Model: The Asus FX504GE-DM198T is a gaming notebook that combines immersive gameplay with incredible durability thanks to its life expectancy of 20 million keystrokes, which doubles the current industry standard. It is the first laptop in the new TUF Gaming series (The Ultimate Force). This new range of Asus notebooks, which shares the essence of the previous TUF series, brings, as a result, a series of portable gaming laptops that prioritize stability and durability as the main pillar. Its aggressive exterior design combines, as usual in gaming laptops, a completely black finish, which on the cover and the work area has a brushed finish, with details in red. Although built completely in plastic, it's casing shows an adequate solidity that is evident in the rigidity of the work area, which barely yields when pressed with force, while the cover, which is much more flexible, visibly sinks when applying a little force. This laptop has a weight of just 2.3 kg (5.07 lb) and a slim profile of 2.49 cm (0.98 inch). Its powerful six-core Intel Core i7-8750H at 2.2 GHz microprocessor is based on the Coffee Lake architecture (eighth generation). It will allow users to perform all kinds of advanced functions. It has 16 GB of DDR4 memory, a 128 GB SSD with an NVME compatible M.2 interface, and a 1TB hard drive at 7,200 rpm. The RAM uses the latest standard in memory, synchronized at an incredible speed of 2,666 MHz. This results in superior multitasking performance. With 4 GB of dedicated GDDR5 VRAM, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti will allow users a very good gaming experience.
With a lifetime of 20 million keystrokes, the FX504 has one of the most durable keyboards, twice the current industry standard of 10 million keystrokes. The red backlit keys have key curves of 0.25 mm and offer 1.8 mm of travel for soft and tactile keys. Besides that, dual fans with anti-dust technology significantly extend the life of the FX504 and provide stable performance for graphics-intensive games, with HyperCool technology that combines the patented self-cleaning ADC system with the customizable Fan Overboost function. Regarding their networking capabilities, it is compatible with both Gigabit Ethernet and Wifi-AC as well as Bluetooth v4.2. Other features include 3 USB type-A ports (2 of which are USB 3.0), HDMI output, an independent numeric keypad, a multi-touch touchpad and an HD webcam. However, it is not a model that stands out for its autonomy. The battery life barely exceeds 3 hours and a half of light use on Wi-Fi navigation with its integrated battery. The FX504GE-DM198T is a perfect example of the current laptop trend. Gaming laptops are becoming more and more normal even for the lower-end market. A high demand in the gaming laptop category has caused the overall laptop sales to increase. This particular model will suite middle to high end users while giving some decent gaming experience.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
