DESIGN

 The Laptop has a brushed metal lid, mat black interior, and smooth colored edges. and whole solid metal and it felt extremely premium and well built.

SIZE AND WEIGHT

The size of the Laptop is 39.9cm width, 27.2cm depth, and 1.87cm Height. So it’s quite slim for a 17-inch Laptop. And the weight of the Laptop is 2.7kg.

DISPLAY

It has 1080p 17.3 screens with a 144Hz refresh rate and the response time is 3ms. So excellent for gamers with the option of swapping to an optimum mode for improved battery life, the bezels are quite thin at just 6.9mm with a larger chin towards the bottom.

There was a little screen flex as the lid is on the thinner side, however as it’s solid metal it felt pretty sturdy, and this is aided by the hinges being out towards the corners.

No issue opening it up with one finger, with the battery up the front and cooling towards. There’s a problem using it on the lap because the keyboard is shifted to the front with the touchpad on the right-hand side. so it can be harder to type with the Laptop while on your lap.

KEYBOARD

The keyboard has individual RGB backlighting capable of being control by Asus software. The keyboard is moved down to the front of the Laptop with the touchpad on the right side instead of the traditional middle location. 
Once you get used to the keyboard, it works pretty well.

SOUND

It has two 2.5 watt speakers, they sound pretty fine for Laptop speakers. there’s some bass, however, if it got too loud they will sound a bit muffled.

PORT

The left side of the Laptop. It has air exhaust vent, the power input, HDMI 2.0b output, USB 3.1 gen 2 Type-A port, USB 3.1 gen 2 type c port which is also wired for DisplayPort 1.4, Although no thunderbolt here and a 3.5mm audio combo jack.

 USB 3.1 gen 1 Type-A port, USB 3.1 type-C port air exhaust vent, and Kensington lock. on the right side of the Laptop. on the back, it has an air exhaust vent.

PROCESSOR

With the strong CPU, it comes with Intel Core i7 9th generation at 2.6GHZ with a turbo clock speed 4.1GHz. base on CPU performance, it has 6 cores with 12 logical processors.

This is the intel processor 2019 version. What Intel could be thinking this coming year 2020, 10th generation? so let not conclude yet. 

GRAPHICS

It comes with the recent Nvidia graphics Card, RTX 2080 with 8gb Dedicated memory GDDRR6 clocked at 6001MHz and can be overclocked.

STORAGE

Base mark, It has 1tb nvme SSD installed, which you can opt for 4tb.

MEMORY

 It has 16 GB of RAM DDR4 2666MHZ installed and, in terms of upgrade, the single memory slot has a 16 GB module, and also the motherboard it has 8GB soldered. That can not be upgraded,  this indicates that 24 GB RAM is the maximum memory the Laptop can take.

BATTERY

equip with the 76-watt hour battery and on average, you can get about 5hrs
of productivity and streaming, media use and you have the option of charging it with the USB type-c. though it will charge slower and it does make more handy. Also include the 230-watt power adapter.
