High Performance Gaming on the Move

Features & Design: 4/5 ● Performance: 4/5 ● Value: 3/5 ● Battery: 4/5
This unit comes with a 15.6” Full HD wide view anti-glare display. The maximum resolution is 1920 x 1080 at 60Hz, and the graphics are handled by an nVidia GeForce GTX 1050 GPU, which is a 4GB GDDR card.
As with all gaming laptops, the individual needs of the user must be taken into account when looking to purchase such a niche device. The screen is a standard 15.6” inches, but that seems a little on the small side of things by today’s standards.
Is it for you?
If you need a regular sized laptop with decent gaming performance and good visual aesthetics, such as RGB lighting and Asus styling, then you might consider this option.
Meet the ASUS ROG GL503VD-DB71 i7-7700HQ
Asus have designed an attractive and capable gaming laptop with good performance and decent system specifications. This is by no means a flagship gaming device, and the pricing seems to indicate this as well. The system is powered by an Intel Core i7 7700HQ Quad core, clocked at 2.8GHz, which dynamically overclocks to 3,8GHz when performance requires it. This model ships with a factory fitted 16GB of DDR4 2400MHz memory, which is more than enough for any gamer.
What we like
Asus has designed a great looking gaming laptop that offers plenty of performance and gaming functionality for modern gamers to sink their teeth into. The overall construction is good, and high quality plastic seems to have been used as the main material.
The palm rest terminates with a diagonal accent, and produces a sharp angle that mimics the speaker grill and power button, which is a nice touch. Gaming performance is good, but as is the case with any gaming laptop, the heat can get a little intense after 3D gaming or CPU and GPU intensive tasks.
The RGB lighting is a good way for gamers to customize their gaming station’s appearance, and the screen is very good for viewing movies and playing games. Overall performance is excellent, thanks to the 7th generation Intel Core i7 CPU that this system is paired with. The trackpad and keyboard work very well.
What we don’t like
There are more positives than negatives with this gaming system, but there are a few things to take into consideration if you are thinking of buying one for yourself, such as the small screen that is only around 15” inches.
The graphics card is a mid ranged card, so while it will definitely be able to play all of the latest titles that are coming out this year, don’t expect it to be able to play VR games, or the latest titles with the settings maxed out.
Should you buy it?
If you are looking for a solid gaming laptop that has been built by one of the leading computer component manufacturers, then this could be a good option for you to consider. It comes in at a slightly lower cost than some of the similarly kitted out gaming laptops presently, so you may want to do a bit of shopping around before you take the plunge.
