Reviews for the Asus TUF Dash F15 TUF516PE-AB73
If you are looking at an affordable RTX 30-series gaming laptop at under 1k, yes definitely worth a look. For a relatively affordable price, you will be getting pretty top-of-the-line updated features. If you don’t need a gaming laptop, opt for this Acer Aspire 5 notebook. It got the newest 11th Gen Intel i7 CPU rather than the 10th Gen of i5, and RTX 30-series GPU rather than the 20-series. Add that to the Thunderbolt 4, 144Hz gorgeous screen, Wi-Fi 6, Ethernet port, 3200MHz RAM, Backlit Keyboard, and SSD. You’ll be getting a powerhouse in a 4.4 lbs attractive package. ASUS TUF Dash F15 TUF516PE-AB73 is not the best on the market but is a worthy contender, if you want better than this one, then you’ll need to pay more.

Finally, you have a midrange, portable laptop in the Asus TUF Dash 15 that expertly balanced performance, practicality, and value. Though its Intel “Tiger Lake” Core i7 has only four processing cores, it manages to offers plenty of pep for the latest AAA games when paired with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti mobile GPU. The Dash TUF 15 is inherently practical with its comfortable keyboard and superb battery life. That said, its gaming performance is only status quo with its last-generation gaming notebooks since its GPU is cast to a low power level, from what we’re seeing in the early run, not all RTX 3050 notebooks are created equal. At least this runs relatively cools and quiet. Value-wise, the Asus TUF Dash 15 (TUF516PE-AB73) looks great in dark gray, and it looks like an even better value than competing portable gaming laptops. If you do decide to for TUF, just remember to also budget for a good external webcam.
