    • I would like to disagree. I think Aorus 15g rtx 3080 takes the king title for being the budget. It's $1000 cheaper for similar spec and it performs better. The only downer would be no 1440p but I can always use external monitor. Can't stand playing on 15inch screen for competitive gaming.

  • I loved that back display thing. Super cool for like DJs, etc.

  • "Having the higher resolution screen can be a bit of a disadvantage" no, it really can't. Every one of the games you tested has a render resolution slider, just use that if 1440p is too heavy to run. Having the option of running at 1440p is objectively better than NOT having it.

  • I have been a laptop gamer for 10+ years now, the weight of the laptop does not bother me at all. Is this something that bothers people? I take my laptop to my friends all the time, I have a ruck sake, lifting it up is nothing and once it is on my back, it is hardly even noticeable. I would for sure, have a more chunky laptop that provides more power and better stats. Having a heavy laptop with better stats is better than having a lighter laptop which under performs.

  • I am so torn on this one, I need to replace my gaming laptop but I need a thunderbolt3 and currently none of the new AMD laptops come with Thunderbolt3. I wouldn't miss the webcam that much but it would be nice to have the Windows Hello option which I use on all my other devices.

  • Personally I like my bottom left control key wider. So I would take the gs66. Right now in the UK u can buy the old model ( with 2060) for £1.3k for the performance I'll get and the price it's probably one of my top choices. There is definitely better options. The g15 is very expensive a cool 1.7k-1.8k it's portable and has great performance. But I hardly ever need to take my laptop around unless I go on vacation and I happen to have hw to do in the meantime

  • Battery life honestly isn't that big of a deal for me. I don't really expect to be using it for very long periods of time anywhere where I don't have access to an electrical outlet.

  • For me, with all respect, a laptop should have a potential like from a desktop (especially the keyboard layout with numpad, seen on ones with 15.6" or bigger displays), but on your lap. What you're looking for, or aiming at, is a notebook (max size should be until 14" display, and with that kind of keyboard layout you're showing off), which is more practical and mostly like mobile/tablet-ish powered but with fan. That's the difference I think should be stated.

  • I’m so curious. Who are the people that buy these? $1,799 for 1440p and it can’t run open world games despite being a ‘gaming laptop’? Who is this for... you could buy a MacBook Air and also partially fund a monster desktop rig. Just super curious here.

  • My next laptop will be the Lenovo Legion Slim, waiting for the newest Intel cpu or with AMD Ryzen, Never Asus again. Asus bang for your buck is great, but my previous ROG had problems with the battery, almost impossible to replace, a nightmare to open, clean, and maintain. Plus typing on Asus keyboards is meh, not great.

  • Printscreen is gone? Oh boy. I use it all the time. Not even for work... every video game i play has a use for this button. To take photos. I even got so used to it, so i used my out of game software that takes photos.. to also use that key. I guess i'm out lol. Yea, all cus of 1 key. I literally took more than 40000 photos and most of them are great. Some of the games i play dont even have a way to reconfigure that button to another so yeah. P.s. Yea, this is also a habit thing that i can't shake off and on every keyboard and laptop that i used, it has one on the same position. Thank god other laptops exist so i wont be forced someday to change my 20 year old habits

  • 3 things ruin this laptop IMO; that textured lid holding the crud, the ports all living on the sides and the white keyboard. Silver keys are worse but I’ll never understand why any laptop manufacturer creates white or silver keys. Horrible experience.

  • Thanks for the in depth reviews of new laptops. I went ahead and purchased the Best Buy configuration of this model based on your recommendations. I had been eyeing the 3080 white version, but based on your reviews and what I have seen from other tech youtubers, the actual performance of the mobile 3080 isn't worth the premium price tag at the moment. Still quite a nice jump going from a 1060 laptop to a 3070 lol.
