    Would an i5-10300h/RTX 3060 combination be better than these, for $1500?

    • +1 vote

      Yep. 3060 will smash the previous gen 2060 (assuming you are gaming). Few games make use of a fancy multi-core cpu. If you are not gaming, why are you considering this?

    •  

      This is a laptop tho, but yea definitely the combo would shit on this "2060 MAXQ" laptop

    • +2 votes

      Gaming wise definitely, a 3060 even at 80w is far better than a mxq 2060, this have a better CPU but Im pretty sure you are buying it for gaming anyways, the i3 is a 4 core but its not going to bottleneck a 3060 mobile. I would assume it have a 144hz screen and 16gb of ram? If so go for that.

      Of course, theres other factors into consideration, if you are buying it for gaming but you are a csgo only player, than the zephyrus maybe better since csgo is much more cpu intensive and it have a 240hz screen.

      The one you mentioned (acer?) is probably better for most gamers, but if you value build quality, component (i.e, I dont know the specs of the one you mentioned but it may have a 45% ntsc screen instead of 72%, a worse SSD etc to cut costs), or even brand name than yeah zephyrus would be a better pick.

      The i5-1300h with only 4 cores will be a bottleneck. No point getting a 3060 if the CPU is not powerful enough to feed it. It will be OK for single core games, but modern AAA games are multi core. You also need to take into consideration that both major consoles have 8 core AMD Ryzen 2 CPUs, and ports of games to PC will take advantage of an 8 core CPU to feed the GPU.

      However if you want a better all round laptop, the G15 is on another level, with good screen, GPU and battery life vs most gaming laptops at this price point.

      CPU performance comparison for reference:

      You can also look at Cyberpunk 2077 taking advantage of more cores based on this review:

    Wow!! Amazing price on this laptop :)

    I've been looking at both the G15 and G14 for ages, however I'd rather have the 14 due to the smaller form factor. Either way, amazing deal on an amazing laptop!!

    •  

      Dude.. Checkout this one: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/619745

      I was on a similar boat and jumped the gun here :D

      Glad I waited till today.

      •  

        Wow! Thanks for that link :)

        The thing is, as tempting as it is to get that, I really want the 120Hz QHD version, and additionally, I'm not in the best of positions to purchase something so expensive at the moment lol

        Thanks anyway, but I think I'm going to keep my trusty X1 Carbon for some more time, but when I eventually switch, I'll be looking at the G14 (Or whatever the newer version of it is at the time)

        My X1 Carbon weighs only 1.1KG and is a 14 inch laptop. This lightweight aspect is what I liked about it so much :) The G14 stood out as well since it provides major performance in a lightweight form factor

  •  

    good deal thin and light

    Wow this is a great price - i am looking at the latest gen G15 with the 3060 and the best price is nearly $900 more.

      Does your credit card have price protection?

  •  

    Should I take this or Lenovo deal with 3070. Mainly creator contains and gaming. 50/50.

  •  

    why is this more cheaper than the G14 when it has more power GPU? 1660ti vs 2060 max q

    •  

      Form factor, also 1660ti > 2060 max q

      •  

        Thanks. I didn't know 1660ti is better than the 2060 maxq

        •  

          Unless it's a 1660 ti max q I'm not sure now actually..

      •  

        Wow you’re right
        Max q sucks

      •  

        But the asus Tuf 1660ti is cheaper than this deal…why when it’s faster than 2060 maxq?

          Asus TUF is considered a budget line, compared to ROG which is more premium (build quality etc)

        haven't tried it yet, ours is used for work/3d/database stuff - seems great so far. Nice big 15 inch screen helps (i also have the G14 which is better in my view, but smaller obviously.

  •  

    remind me when you have a 2080 non max q laptop

    Any idea if the G14 might go on sale?

    FYI 240hz screen… is this believable?

    Could you mine with this or would there be heating issues?

      you would lose money trying to mine with this

    The $1,519.00 laptop only has 8GB ram but your title says 16GB….

    •  

      I went off of the description: Total System Memory 8GB DDR4-3200 SO-DIMM * 2

      This model usually ships with 16GB, too.

      You can always take a screenshot of the description to protect yourself before buying.

    noob question: why this 2060 laptop has more votes than 2070 dell…

      I'm not huge on processors, but I saw the CPU passmark on this one is 19,750 vs the Dell which is 12,580.

      The AMD Ryzen 4900HS is more powerful (8 cores vs 6) and power efficient (35w vs 45W) compared to the Intel i7-10750H. You will need to be connected to a power point to take advantage of the 2070. The G15 is balanced gaming laptop that you can actually take on the road and has good battery life for productivity.

        Thank you mate. Appreciated.

    I'm questioning again how come gaming laptops or any new laptops do not have SDCard slot built-in?

    We need those for transferring photos else need an external SDCard reader its ridiculous~!

    I feel the build quality old Asus is better eg. N61J that's from 2010 and have better speakers. Has built-in SDCard, I wonder what is happening these days!?

    •  

      It's better if you buy one of those all in one USB Type C reader.. It really comes on handy for everything..
      Manufacturers will keep removing ports for the future as well…

      •  

        Any suggestion which one to get?

        •  

          Check Amazon for a cheap one with lots of good reviews

  •  

    Thinking about buying this, but the 2060 maxq gpu doesn't seem to good for a gaming laptop

    Thank you, didn't need it but bought it. Buy now regret later.

      If you have an Suncorp or AAMI, you can get up to $500 of Amazon giftcards per month at 3%($15) off.

        Thanks, I didn't realise Suncorp was so good with benefits and just opened an account with them, saving extra on some Kogan gift cards (6% vs CR 2%)

  •  

    although overall is a good deal but MAX-Q kills it if you looking to game , better to spend a bit more and get a 3060 one. (IMO)

    I'm thinking of getting the new Lenovo Legion 5 pro with ryzen 5800H/RTX3070 140W…that would blow this thing out of the water!

    • +1 vote

      But it's thicker, heavier and far more expensive

      •  

        I agree, bought the Lenovo Legion 5 pro. It's definitely not thin/light. The powerpack itself is as long as the width of a 13inch laptop and thicc as hell.
        Different class of power though given it's extra minimum 1k price tag

  •  

    Looking for a gaming laptop for my son as was going to bite the bullet but also noticed this with a 3060.
    Are there any clear benefits for the Asus besides the slightly lower price

      How did this deal get so many upvotes compared to this with a better gpu https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/611247

      •  

        Up votes aren't everything. There are factors that can affect it like the time of the post, the poster, how much info was originally included.

        Personally I only started looking at gaming laptops start of April so anything before that I haven't paid much attention to.

    4 left in stock, got mine delivered today

    Thanks OP, lucky I made up my mind this morning as it looks like it sold out already!

    I was tossing up between this, the 2021 RTX 3060 model (at $2.3k) or the Razer 15 Base (2020) on MWave for $2.1k
    Ultimately the R9 and price factor lead me to making the purchase on this.. lucky I got one!

  •  

    I have to say I am extremely happy with this laptop. Build quality is excellent and its nice and slim for a gaming computer. Performance is excellent. Only negative thing I have to say about it is the very sexy nice brushed black finish looks amazing however it is really bad for fingerprints so constantly cleaning.

    •  

      im extremely happy with mine as well. Followed some instructions online to disable turbo boost and both my GPU and CPU stays withint 70-80 degrees under gaming load.

  •  

    Looks like Asus has used thread lock on the M.2 screws on this laptop. I've almost stripped the screw on the second M.2 slot trying to remove it. No way to add a second SSD if the screw has been glued in.

    This is a great laptop though!

    •  

      i manage to add SSD to second M.2 slot without issues. Are others glued in?

      •  

        Actually got it out by heating the screw with a soldering iron and used a pair of small pliers to grip the screw by the edges and unscrew it. Just as I imagined there was loctite on the screw! Installed a second SSD and it's running smoothly.

    •  

      I have a lenovo laptop and I accidentally stripped the screw changing up the m.2 ssd. I think it's more to do using the correct size head for something more delicate like this.

      •  

        Apparently this is a common issue with Asus even on their motherboards. Someone made a YouTube video about it which was very helpful.
