ASUS ROG GL551JW-DS71 15.6-Inch FHD Gaming Laptop

I chose ASUS ROG GL551JW, because i liked the design and also i felt the cooling technology is better in Asus. I received this laptop yesterday and i am very happy. I wanted to get a very good configuration laptop at a reasonable price. Within two days of placing the order, the price has dropped by around 23$. It is definitely worth it. I am running the laptop after detaching the battery :-) When i ordered this laptop, there was only one review and it was hard to make a decision. But now, after i see many more 5 stars i feel my decision was right. I also received a nice gaming mouse. Though i prefer sleek mouse over a large one, still i liked it. I am not a game enthusiast, all i wanted was a quad core laptop i7, with 16gb ram ,SSD, backlit keyboard and good cooling. This is the best laptop i could find within the price range.

Customer Reviews

Excellent and affordable gaming computer! One tip on swapping out the harddrive for an SSD: You will have to do a clean install of Windows 8.1 to do this. Your CD key is embedded on the laptop's motherboard, so all you do is burn a Windows 8.1 install DVD (off the internet), put the CD in, reboot the laptop, and install WIndows 8.1 fresh.

I was hesitant to buy this laptop as there was only 2 reviews. I took a chance and am glad i did! The design is great, it looks and feels amazing. It does like to collect smudges and fingerprints, but most all of them do. It doesn't get too hot, keyboard feels great. I haven't played anything too graphic intensive but it played CS:GO without a hiccup. Overall great product.

Very good laptop for an amazing price. Really hard to find the exact specs w/o paying alot more. No issues so far. Mostly used for multitasking and heavy multimedia usage. Have not tested games as yet but overall great buy.
