Been on the lookout for a new laptop and came across this. Couple of variations with similar chunky discount. Shame apparently the screen is garbage with poor battery life. /discuss

    Who cares about battery life over performance on a gaming laptop?

    • Fair point, but just the greed of min maxing 😅

      • +2

        Weight, Performance, Battery Life

        Choose 2

        Min-maxing usually includes a dump stat 😉

    • Me, I bring my gaming laptop to uni and don’t want to have it plugged in all time. I had an Asus ROG and it lasted about 2 hours on battery saving mode

      • Then don't get a gaming laptop for education.

        • Because gaming laptops can't do anything other than game? Ones with decent battery life exist, my Alienware m15 lasts all day without a charge

          • @FireRunner: Are you being intentionally obtuse? It's not an either or proposition. It's about prioritisation of resources, most people when buying a gaming laptop would prefer higher FPS. Of course you can have one with better battery life, it's just going to be at the cost of something else.

            • @Willyslicks: I don’t understand what you’re getting at. You can get high spec’d gaming laptops (RTX2070 and RTX2080) with decent battery life. Asus is just particularly awful from my personal experience.

              • @FireRunner: Similar specs but better battery life at this price? Thats a better deal but ill believe it when i see it.

                • @Willyslicks: No, not at this price but the laptop is heavily discounted from ~$3k. If looking in the original price range you probably have a good selection to choose from. I agree the discount price is great and if you’re after a beast that you don’t need to bring around, this is excellent.
                  My original point was that battery life can a consideration even for gaming laptops, depending on use and that Asus had particularly abysmal battery life. Research different brands and models to find the best suited to you.

          • @FireRunner: and that costs a (profanity) premium, most people dont have mum and dad buying them stuff

    It's the same screen that's in the tuf a15 45% ntsc.

    • Is it shit?

      • According to the internet, it's shit. Been using it for the last….4-6 months? It's fine

      • I have no personal experience with said laptop so can only go off what people have said. It could be a lot better brightness, colour gamut and response time wise. Will it get the job done, most certainly, will it be okay to use probably. Could it be better absolutely.

    • says " 15.6-inch Full HD (1920x1080) vIPS-level panel 144Hz 100% RGB "

      • looks ok to me

  • Can anyone tell me how this would handle some VR stuff? Elite Dangerous, Skyrim, No Man's Sky. The new Flight Simulator as well!

  • Damn shame it doesn't have an AMD Ryzen 4000 series CPU :(

  • the screen is garbage with poor battery life

    Get out of here! I have this. Screen is fantastic. Everything looks good on it and refresh rate is super smooth.

    Regarding battery life, yea, it's crap but it's also a bloody gaming laptop. I'm not sure what people expect. You want Macbook Air battery life while playing Valhalla?
