Thin, but not too thin. Asus seems to have struck a perfect balance in the race for a thinner and thinner gaming notebook while still maintaining case rigidity and enthusiast-level Nvidia GPU options. Inevitably, some important features have been omitted along the way.
90% Asus ROG Strix GL502 review

It's rare for us to be this thoroughly impressed with a gaming laptop. Aside from the minor knock against battery life, there's nothing wrong with Asus ROG Strix GL502. In fact, almost everything else about the machine is stellar from the crisp keyboard, loud speakers, stunning screen and solid Full HD gaming experience. This is one of the best all-around gaming laptops we've ever reviewed, hands down, and we recommend it if you're in the market for a solid mobile PC gaming system.

The design of the ROG Strix GL502 is consistent with all the other Republic of Gamers products ASUS has released. If anything, the Strix GL502 is little more subdued than other ROG gear. There's just a few splashes of neon orange here and there to differentiate this gaming beast from your work laptop. It also only weighs 2.2kg and is 23.5mm thick - amazingly compact for a machine with a high-end CPU and GPU. You could easily transport this from home to work or school every day, unlike the gaming laptops of just a few years ago.

While we approach every review without any bias, we've come to expect good things from ASUS in the gaming category, and for the most part the ROG Strix GL502VT-DH74 delivers. At just 4.85 pounds, it's relatively lightweight for a gaming laptop, and its waistline of 0.92 inches is far skinnier than what you'll find on the bulk of desktop replacements out there.

A thin-and-light gaming notebook without compromise is something of an oxymoron—we have yet to test one. However, with each model we review, it’s becoming apparent to us that notebook makers are compromising less. The Asus RoG Strix GL502VT is standing evidence of that.

Well, the Asus GL502VT ROG Strix gaming laptop can’t really convince us, no? The machine itself has no too significant caveats for such a price. Performance is good as can be expected. Noise is relatively low. Keyboard and touchpad are quite good and comfortable. It is relatively thin and lightweight.

For the size and the price, the $1,599 Asus ROG Strix GL502VT is definitely a keeper. Garish color accents aside, the 15.6-inch is fairly portable and packs a wallop. Even better, if offers a captivating 1080p display, a comfortable keyboard and nearly 6 hours of battery life. We just wish the GL502VT ran cooler and brought more bass.

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. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

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).


These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M:

Second fastest high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell GM204 chip from the GeForce GTX 900M series.

» 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.  

6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

2.2 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

2.5 kg:


81.33%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
