Reviews for the Asus TUF Gaming A15 FA506QM

2021 Asus TUF Gaming 15 FA506Q and TUF 17 FA705Q – Ryzen 5000, RTX 3000 graphics and updated thermal design

One final aspect I’ll mention is that Asus haven’t announced the official prices and availability of these new TUFs, which were mostly a silent launch. Based on availability from other OEMs, I’d expect these in stores around March 2020, with the Ryzen 7 + RTX 3060 configurations probably starting at around $1200 =/- $100. We’ll keep you posted, and in the meantime, I’d love to hear what you think about these 2021 Asus TUF Gaming models and their apparently small, but possibly major, updates, so get in touch in the comments section below.

15.60":

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.
