Yes, for the price, it’s a solid gaming laptop even though the competition offers better, especially for anyone looking for a gaming and work machine. The TUF Dash F15 in this review isn’t the most powerful gaming laptop in this price range, and it isn’t the most stylish, but it does what it’s set out to do fine. If you can buy it on a sale, you’ll squeeze a lot of value out of this sleek, adaptable package – and even at its current price, it offers peppy performance with features normally reserved for top-tier models. Again, the few things holding the Dash F15 from being the absolute gaming beast don’t affect gaming. Its mediocre base screen and uninspired audio can be remedied by a pair of gaming headphones and the screen isn’t completely gross. However, if you need the best performance possible, the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro and Asus ROG Strix G15 AMD Advantage blow the Dash F15 out of the woods with bright, vivid screens with 100% sRGB color coverage. Elsewhere, if you need a highly portable gaming laptop, the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 is a much more compact machine with better performance and packs a much better display and up to nine hours of battery life. That said, if your budget dictates that you can only spend $1,500 or less on a gaming laptop, the Asus TUF Dash F15 is a good choice, and offers decent performance and features across the board. It’s notably far better than its predecessor, and with the RTX 3070 GPU, it offers a unique combination of power, ergonomics, and flexibility that are not easy to nail at this price point.

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.
