Overall, the gaming laptop from Asus is equipped with some top-of-the-line features and hardware. The body is quite sturdy and the 144Hz refresh rate makes it a delightful experience to play games at high frame rates. You will not get disappointed with the performance of this gaming laptop, though might worry about the battery backup. That said, if you are looking for a serious gaming machine and there is no price constraint then this laptop can be considered as an option for you.

So £2000 is clearly quite a lot of money to spend on a laptop. Consider, however, what you are getting with the GM501GS. Not only are you getting Intel’s latest 8th-generation processor, but you’re also provided with a Nvidia 1070 graphics card. On top of all that as well you’re getting a fantastic hard drive system and what is perhaps the best-looking laptop currently available on the market. I really can’t stress enough just how fantastic this laptop is on every level. It’s just a slight disappointment that when unplugged, it does seem to gobble up the battery life really rapidly.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Mobile: Pascal based high-end mobile graphics card based on a cut down GP104 (like the GTX 1080) and GDDR5 graphics memory. Successor to the GTX 980M with a 10 Watts higher TDP. Similar to the desktop GTX 1070 performance wise, but with more shaders and lower clock speeds.
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

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.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
