I would definitely recommend this laptop for any use. Currently use it for development and gaming. I bought it on sale and was worth the price.
* Adding an extra M.2 NVMe SSD, then migrating the OS, is almost required. Without, speeds are severely bottlenecked. In simpler terms: Windows updating would make it impossible to use Windows until complete. After the upgrade, updates finish in seconds, not hours.
It is very fast. Boots up in 17 seconds. Has taken everything I've thrown at it. Streaming to Twitch on 720p 30fps with overlays/webcam and no hiccups in the stream, editing and exporting videos with effects in Adobe Premiere. 10 minute export time for a 10 minute long video, very reasonable.
It is a fingerprint magnet where your palms would rest using the trackpad but it stopped once I got my optical mouse setup.
I'll update as I use the laptop more...
I was a little concerned that the fans will be noisy(based on other reviews), and I found them to not be noisy at all.
The display is great. Wide view angles , good brightness, just as described by Asus.
Battery ok for this type, not bad, not great , just ok.
Hard drive is way too slow, which is fine since I will get another SSD anyway.
Would have give 5 stars if not for all that preloaded unwanted software.
My first day with the laptop was annoying and I feel these issues are with Windows 10 more so than the hardware itself .
The laptop was so slow because the disk usage was at 100% . The culprit was an office related process .
I did a full reset of the pc (took hours )to get rid of the junk and ran through the updates .
As others have suggested I feel the firecuda is maybe not the best , so I will be installing an ssd soon .
The laptop runs great now . I spent about 2 hours playing battlefront 2 and had a great time .
My only real complaint . The fans are loud ! The laptop doesn’t get hot but the fans are loud enough while playing that I could hear them in another room when I had my game paused.
