ASUS GA502DU – 15.6″ FHD – AMD Ryzen 7 3750H – NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q – 16GB – 512GB SSD
Pros: -SDS hard drive is very fast, especially when booting and shutting down.
-Backlit buttons are cute!
-CPU / Graphics Combo plays games very well; Ryzen CPUs are good.
– I like the configuration with two fans. It seems to keep things fresh.
– The screen is fantastic; The refresh rate is good and I like the matte finish.
Cons: – Windows 10: I hate Windows 10, but what can you do?
– I had ASUS laptops with beautiful brushed chrome cases that are durable and attractive. They only have some kind of cheap and weak-looking black plastic.
Overall rating: we bought 2 of them; My girlfriend also has one. We have found that they work excellently and have had no problems. It turned out that Windows 10 recognized a problem and triggered a BIOS update on both laptops within a week. I don’t think I should update the BIOS unless there is a serious problem and I would rather do it, not Microsoft.
The sound is missing a bit, but hey, that’s a laptop – put on the headphones and the problem is solved.
Free games were included with laptops, but one of the games didn’t play and just crashed, but that’s more of an issue with the game than with the laptop. However, they should at least try what matches what when they offer free advertising.
In addition to the sad reality of Windows 10, I would recommend this laptop.
