    FYI, no thunderbolt port, numpad, or optical drive.

      Wow first time I see laptop without numpad…..

        Come to think of it, nearly all of my laptops don't have a number pad (real or virtual) - Alienware 13R3, Alienware 15R3, Razer Blade 15 (2019), Lenovo Yoga 260, Lenovo X1 Carbon 6th gen.

        The only laptop in recent years which had one which I can recall is my Dell Inspiron 7559.

          My Asus Rog GL502VS has the numpad. Many 15inch have it but smaller often don't.

        •  

          I don't like numpads on a laptop.

          It forces the touchpad to the left instead of center. Makes your hands be placed in an unnatural position. You've got the whole width of the laptop, but your fingers will be positioned a little to the left instead of centered straight onto the laptop in front of you.

        The 13inch and some 15inch Alienwares don't have the numpad.

    •  

      I think the Numb pad is on TouchPad on this model. I have 17" model which came with numb pad and I am very happy with my purchase.

      Optical drive? Is it 2009 still?

    Recently bought one, really happy with it, though this model doesn't have the virtual numpad like some of the photos have shown.

    If you'd prefer a GTX 1660 Ti over the 120Hz screen, I reckon this Lenovo is a better deal:

      In reality, if you're reaching for a 1660Ti or higher, you should be targeting both.

        I agree, both are a compromise.

        Would love to see a laptop deal this price that had a GTX 1660 Ti AND an 120Hz+ screen.

    This is not the Scar but more budget strix G, the lid is plastic instead of metal. The RGB light bar strip has been limited to only 1 color at a time. The keyboard is not individually lit. The 120Hz screen has poor color gamut. If you can spend $200 more, step it up and get a variant with 144Hz screen made by AUO which is way better

    •  

      Totally agree in relations to the screen.
      If you are looking for a Asus Scar variant machine and have a slightly higher budget for a mid range gaming laptop look for the older Asus Scar II GTX1060 (6GB) or GTX1070 (8GB) models. You can usually find them on sale on eBay for around $2000 and also come with a 1TB HDD for additional storage.

      The only thing I will say is that due to no onboard Intel graphics and having a dedicated video output your battery will only last around 1.5hrs maybe 2hrs on light loads like web browsing, Youtube, etc. This has been my experience with the Asus Scar II model so expect to carry your charger with you all the time.

    •  

      Yup, spend $200 extra now for a much much better experience over the next 2 years that you use this. If you use the laptop for 2 years it's 27c per day to have a much better experience. I love the description "IPS level" screen. It's either IPS or it's not lol.

      •  

        That's because the 144Hz panel you see on ASUS ROG line are actually AHVA panels, which is more IPS less VA.

        The 120Hz one is pretty bad tho, it is TN made by Chi MEI.

    Their listing omits the size of the battery. Pretty important spec to omit.
