    I’ve had this laptop for 3 days and the package arrived in excellent condition apart from UPS delivery issues (Which seems like a common occurrence with stuff from Amazon).

    I can say it’s a very impressive laptop, fps in most games will be 90+ with no problem in 2k resolution (if the game supports 2k) the refresh rate is lightning smooth and I have not experienced any bugs or stutter so far, apart from the screen flickering while using an internet browser, but another review has addressed that and seems to have fixed the issue for me.

    Although you will have to update most things when you do power it up the first time. Such as apps listed in the windows store and also any updates required from the windows update tab.

    Read and write speeds are impressive. The CPU will run hotter than the GPU about 10-20 degrees depending on the task.

    The laptop construction has a lid that is metalic on the outside with a white illuminated ROG logo. The rest of the laptop seems to be of a durable plastic which does not get too hot, the keyboard area does tend to be a fingerprint magnet, which is a slight annoyance. So far the keyboard lighting has had no issues. And I have not had any trouble using the trackpad.

    The laptop comes equipped with Dolby Access which includes Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision if you’d like to change the audio and video profiles to the task that you are doing. Dolby atmos has a very impressive virtual surround sound feature as well.

    The screen can be a little dim with default settings, but you can manually adjust some display settings through the AMD software and Armoury Crate to get the most out of the display.

    There are no dead pixels or major backlight bleed in the laptop that I have received.

    The AC Adapter can get pretty hot under heavy loads, but that’s to be expected with such a powerhouse.

    Overall, I’d say for the amount of performance and features that you get under the discounted price, this laptop is more than worthy of a purchase.

    Nice laptop except for the fact that it overheats during gameplay and totally shuts down….. It’s a gaming laptop and the software that’s supposed to increase performance during gameplay overheats it and kicks you from whatever game you’re playing. Duh

    I’ve been using this laptop for a year now, and I have not had one single issue with it. I play a multitude of different MMORPG and FPS games and every one of them has run flawlessly. I play multiple nights a week. It is a very sturdy laptop and the battery life is surprisingly good. It has all kinds of customization options and it has a great feel to the keyboard. The graphics quality is fantastic and the coloring looks amazing. I would highly decide this laptop for any level of PC gamer

    Absolute garbage for this price. Shame on Asus to ship unstable laptop like this, you would expect a high end laptop, but when the honeymoon phase end, you will encounter tons of problems, laptop just shutting down without any reason, taking long time to shutdown for no apparent reason when no applications are open, application crashing because the graphic card is unstable. I bought Asus for many years before switching to Lenovo and when my last Lenovo laptop wasn’t enough for my work, I decided to change machine and was interested of having the latest Ryzen but it was a bad decision on my side and I will NEVER buy an ASUS laptop and encourage everyone to do the same because they became so unreliable. Saddening waste of my money.

    Well, Asus packing job solid 10/10; Amazon handling 3/10. But, it’s intact and works amazingly. I gotta say though, there is a lot of updates for a month old laptop: windows, drivers and even the BIOS… I am a little disappointed that it only has one m.2 slot; I could have sworn I read somewhere it had two; no AI accelerators for me 😭.

    Bottom line: This thing is a BEAST!

    I gave It 3/5 on the battery but let’s be honest, what do you expect with its running a ryzen 9 and a rtx4080?

    tldr; Not the greatest laptop ever, but it is up there, even though some minor annoyances. And oh, it lights up!

    Delivery Date 3-28-23 : Thankfully the product didn’t look as beat up as the box. Which once you open it, the box will elevate the laptop for you, which was pretty cool. Strix G17 2023 looks and feels aesthetically amazing, which based on that alone it gets a 6 out of 5. Especially if you got to stare at your laptop all day like me. I still miss the fighter-jet design of the older ones though.

    However trying to change batteries, and removing the back compartment. Is more troubling-some than older version of ROG laptops. Then you keep getting this pop up about having to buy extended warranty, when Asurion’s warranty offer is better. So that is very disappointing, considering the price point. Because I’m expecting this to last 10 years with heavy use, like my old ROG laptop. Taking that into consideration, I just hope I don’t have to get into the back compartment often, and it lasts long enough, so I can happily get my money’s worth.

    They decided to combine the home and end button, which I’m not a fan of. But if you like slim laptops, this is very slim compared to older ROG laptops. However not as slim as their Zephrus line and MSI’s Katana.

    Lastly my bios times is about 10secs, with all start up apps turned off, plus samsung 990pro, but I don’t have a clean install of windows 11. My older ROG laptop had a boot time of 3s, plus samsung qvo, with its start up apps on, but it was a clean window 10 install. That had me worried, considering the specs on my new laptop. So you might need to do a clean install and get rid of a lot of the junk or maybe windows 11 just has bad startup times.

    Will update if anything goes wrong.

    PS: Also, don’t forget to charge it up first, before turning it on for its’ first time.

    UPDATE 4-18-23: Been trying to troubleshoot a annoying random occurrence where either the laptop display or rgb light, will flicker once really quick. It did this when I first boot it up, but figured it was just a driver issue. And once I update all the software it would stop. Unfortunately it hasn’t, and I’ve managed to get the problem down to 2 things. Worst case scenario it is a hardware issue, best case scenario it is a app on the laptop that needs to be uninstalled because it is not compatible.

    Another thing to mention is RAM (I’ve Included a new picture showing it). I actually had to contact Asus Live directly through MyAsus. To figure out what type of ram to upgrade and I also crossed check this with their website, which says “8GB DDR5-4800 SO-DIMM x 2, Max Capacity: 32GB.” Which means 16GB DDR5-4800 SO-DIMM x2, would be the best you can buy. The default ones you get are Micron, the same owner of Crucial. However I went to Micron’s site and checked what was compatible with my laptop, and was informed the “2-16GB DDR5-5600 SODIMM 1.1V CL46” would work just fine. Not only that, but it would work on a 4800MHz and 5200MHz rig because it will adjust itself to your mobo’ speed. I finally got it today and popped them in, but was shocked to see that I’m actually getting the 5200MHz speed. Apps are loading and performing slightly better and faster, when I have multiple of them open.

    UPDATE 5-23-23: If you plan on watching netflix. You might want another laptop. I’ve had no way of figuring out why it will only stream on laptop at 720p max and will stutter every now and then, regardless if it is edge or netflix app from microsoft store. Also recently had some skipping keystrokes issue with laptop, that can be somewhat fixed by updating the keyboard driver. Lastly, laptop will freeze once coming out of hibernation mode or it randomly restarts for no reason, ultimately I had to disable that feature.

    I’m definitely annoyed with it a little bit at this point, but become happy when I boot up a game, and it can run it no problem, with high graphics at 60fps. Worked perfectly on Nioh 2, Forspoken, and Blade & Soul. Once I travel with it, I can give a battery update later.

    UPDATE 7-4-23: Whatever recent update that was sent out, made the flickering stop. I’m assuming it could have been a combination of Armory Crate and some other major functioning OEM program, but regardless I’m happy I don’t see that flickering everyday. Missing keystrokes seems to be slightly fixed as well, it doesn’t happen as much.

    However, do watch out for the random restarts and system freezes, if it starts doing that, you will have to troubleshoot it. My older laptop rarely froze and almost never randomly restart. Just like the prior issues, I hope that is fixed through software updates.

    Lastly, if you used mastered card to buy this laptop, it has recently gone through a 240$ price drop, make sure you use your price match benefit.

    Lo malo es que es grande y pesada, nada versátil, tengo una mochila grande y entra con trabajo, la pila dura como 2 horas a lo mucho sin hacer casi nada, no lo veo tan malo porque es entendible por sus especs pero es para tomarlo en cuenta, es caliente sin hacer nada pero con grandes cargas logra mantenerse estable.
    Lo bueno, es una bala, en todos los sentidos, tiene el procesador más potente para portátiles, la gráfica es de gama media-alta, y la pantalla es preciosa, QHD 240 hz, no es mini led pero aun así tiene buenos colores. Si es tu única máquina pues igual y si vale la pena, pero si tienes una escritorio, no creo que sea lo que buscas.

    El equipo llego bien, el empaque no es bueno pero aún así llegó sin daños, los acabados y materiales son de buena calidad y se sienten bien al tacto, los componentes son de primera, el computador mas rápido que he tenido, tanto para programación como para juegos siempre ofrece máximo rendimiento.
    Los puntos malos son: trae instalado windows home edition me parece absurdo, los ventiladores son muy ruidosos, el equipo y el cargador son pesados y grandes, cargarlo un día completo en lae escuela te dejará cansado.
    Por lo demas pues no es un equipo barato pero si estas buscando máximo desempeño sin duda este es tú equipo.
    Altamente recomendable.

    Me gusto mucho el RGB la hace lucir mucho en cuanto a los juegos todos los levanta sin problemas algunos no en tan alta resolución pero todos jugables el único detalle que no me gusto es que no cuenta con web cam pero de ahí en más todo bien.
