As with all gaming gear, the Asus TUF FX505 is quite expensive. But, in its category, this is easily one of the best gaming laptops you can buy right now. The Intel Core i7-8750H is a super fast performer while the Nvidia GTX 1060 GPU is fairly powerful to manage the latest gaming titles without breaking a sweat. I also adore the extensive heat management system and the butter-smooth 144Hz display. For competing at e-sports events, this is a laptop that can hold it for longer sessions while you are busy making a name for yourself. Surely, as a gamer, I would have preferred some crazy eye-catching design as well as a slimmer overall profile inspired from the ROG series.

Overall, The TUF FX505 with a new design, compact form factor, RGB keyboard, 144Hz screen and better wireless connectivity makes for good value for money at a starting price point of Rs 79,990 (The TUF FX505 is available in different variations ranging from Core i5 to i7 H processors, up to 32 GB of memory, GTX 1050Ti or GTX 1060 graphics and a 17.3-inch variant is also available in the FX705 series). Apart from the minor flaws, the commendable gaming performance and brilliant screen make it a good purchase without putting a huge dent in your pocket.

The Asus TUF Gaming FX505 finally lives up to its "TUF" moniker by gaining a MIL.STD-810G rating, meaning it can easily withstand the abuse of day-to-day life. The performance of the laptop was also satisfactory with all our test games running on their max graphic settings with a minimum frame-rate of 100fps. Creative professionals could also use this for their editing needs as the laptop could easily handle photo and video editing, but showed some signs of distress while colour grading fullHD footage.

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.
