Pros

What is not to love about the all new Asus ROG Strix GL502VT-DS74 when it comes to hardware specifications since Asus has loaded it full of top of the line products starting with the Intel Core i7-6700HQ which also comes with Turbo Boost technology giving it top speeds up to 3.5 Ghz, and when you combine this with not just 8 but 16 GB of DDR4 memory you have a lethal combination that can run anything with ease.

Asus has done a nice job on the hard drive side as well by going with a combination of two drives. It includes the large 1 TB SATA drive which should easily cover your needs when it comes to space and for an added boost in performance in case all the power we mentioned above is somehow still not enough they have added a 128 GB SSD which has much faster read and write times improving overall performance.

No shortage of room for your high speed USB devices as you will find 3 ports that all run on the newer USB 3.0 technology on this model.

Cons

With a total weight of 6.2 pounds the Asus ROG Strix GL502VT-DS74 is on the heavy side when compared to other models which have similar screen sizes, Obviously packing all of this high end hardware into its frame has made it a bit big and bulky.

The price tag will give some users on a budget sticker shock quite quickly and means it is geared towards the real power users who are willing to spend a little more to get top of the line hardware.

Verdict

The Asus ROG Strix GL502VT-DS74 is another impressive addition to a lineup of laptops which have been impressing gamer’s and high end users alike for some time now and while it is on the pricey side seems to be worth every penny for those that demand nothing but the best.
