The Asus RoG Strix GL703VM is a high-quality laptop that packs great 1080p gaming performance into a respectably thin and light case. It’s not that portable, and isn’t designed to be, but is a good option for those who don’t want a machine that weighs 4kg and is 4cm thick.

The best ROG laptop from the GL-series? Probably yes but is it enough to be called the best in class? Well, again, it really depends on what are you looking for. The GL703VM offers some cool features rarely found in GTX 1060-powered notebooks including a 120 Hz G-Sync-enabled IPS panel, which is optional but still… It’s also pretty thin and light for 17-inch notebook so you get portability along with the excellent performance to some extent.

ASUS ROG’s Strix Scar laptop is aimed squarely at first person shooter gamers. It boasts GTX 1060 graphics, an i7-7700HQ processor and 16GB of DDR4 – but most impressive is the 120Hz Full-HD display and its 5ms response time. As with most ROG products, though, it does not come cheap – priced at £1599.99 here in the UK, the Scar is a pretty serious investment. Is it one worth making?

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Mobile: The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card.
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.
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.
7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
