ROG Strix GL502VM 15.6″ G-SYNC VR Ready Thin and Light Gaming Laptop NVIDIA GTX 1060 6GB Intel Core i7-7700HQ 16GB DDR4 128GB SSD 1TB HDD

Need help choosing between two versions of the kaby lake GL502.

If you must go with one of the two then I would go with this one because the other is known to have heating issues.

USA $1500

In that budget, this ROG Strix GL502VMwould be a very decent pick. It definitely has the power you need with a powerful Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor, 16GB DDR4 RAM, a fast 128GB SSD and a 1TB HDD. It also has a powerful GTX 1060 dedicated graphics card. Apart from pure perform, it has a decent build quality, nice IPS display, good build quality and it is not very heavy. It has a decent 76WHrs battery which should give you around 5 hours with light operation.

> Lastly, I love the Aero 14 except for the screen size and the price being just out of my budget.

Newegg sells it for $1599, if you don’t mind to have a 6th gen i7 quad core instead of a 7th gen.

Another alternative you could take a look on is the Asus ROG GL502VM-DS74. Doesn’t look as toyish as the MSI Stealth Pro, but still … . It’s also a bit over 4.5 lbs.

Well the Asus ROG GL553 only has a TN panel, but it’s one of the better ones. I think that people are saying that the Acer display looks a little fuzzy because it’s a matte display and not a glossy display, where on a matte display, colors look fine and vibrant, but on a glossy display, all the colors are usually oversaturated. It just takes time getting used to a matte display if you’re from a glossy display.

Also, I just recently came upon this $1,500 computer that has a 1060, but this one is better than the Acer, but the $500 price premium is up to you.

The ASUS ROG GL502VM (and this supports G-sync & is VR ready) has the following:
1) Intel Core i7-7700HQ
2) Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060
3) 16 GB DDR4 RAM
4) 128 GB SSD & 1 TB 7200rpm HDD
5) 1080p G-SYNC matte non-touch display
6) Price: $1,500 (USD)
7) Weight: 4.9 pounds (albeit the cooling system is going to run hot when on heavy load)

This ROG Strix GL502VM would match your criteria very well.. It definitely will run Dota2 on max settings with high fps. It has a powerful new i7-7700HQ processor, 16GB RAM 128GB SSD 1TB HDD AND OF COURSE, THE POWERFUL GTX 1060 DEDICATED graphics card.. This laptop also has a decent build quality, and it’s cooling system is not bad at all.

Wouldn’t be bad to get something with international warranty. Otherwise you will have to send it back to the US to get something fixed.

So you either get a MacBook, a higher end business line laptop from Dell/Lenovo/HP or an Asus or MSI model (which offer international warranty on some of their products).

Dell Precision 15 3000: http://www.microcenter.com/product/464935/Precision_15_3000_Series_(3510)_156_Mobile_Workstation_Laptop_Computer_-_Black

15.6 inch, 1920x1080p IPS panel, i7 quad core, 16 GB of RAM, 1 TB HDD, AMD FirePro W5130M with 2 GB of GDDR5 RAM. Doesn’t come with an SSD, but you could upgrade it yourself. Has a 3 year warranty with on-site service and Dell has a website, where you can transfer the warranty to Spain.

Dell XPS 15 9550:

“Only” an i5 quad core, but could be plenty. It just depends on the size of the projects you’re working on. Comes with a Nvidia GPU, which is a huge plus for Adobe Premiere (CUDA cores an so).

Asus ROG Strix GL502VM: Newest Kaby Lake i7 quad core, 16 GB of RAM, SSD + HDD, Nvidia GTX 1060. According to the warranty (which is linked in a PDF on Amazon), the warranty covers the US and Europe.

Hey, what’s the consensus on the new silver Strix refresh? Specifically this model

https://www.amazon.com/GL502VM-G-SYNC-Gaming-Laptop-i7-7700HQ/dp/B01MS14CQH/ref=pd_sbs_147_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01MS14CQH&pd_rd_r=VYYJJ8Z7Z4C7R9ZX08B6&pd_rd_w=oiyRW&pd_rd_wg=KHl8W&psc=1&refRID=VYYJJ8Z7Z4C7R9ZX08B6

I’m highly interested in it, but I’m concerned about battery life while not gaming and heat management both while not gaming and while gaming. I want it to play games while away from home (I have an i7 & 980ti at home), but also need a new laptop for my graduate program because my current laptop’s trackpad stopped working correctly after 5 years.

Therefore, I’m curious about those two main points and how it’ll work for extended periods nongaming (papers, notes, ect). Thanks!

Edit: if you want a better indication of what I’m looking for, check my history for a laptop suggestion request I posted yesterday 🙂

Edit 2: If it’s necessary I can pay the extra $200 to upgrade to 1070 and 120hz screen, but I’m not sure if those would hurt or help my two major concerns. I feel like they’d make the issues worse, personally

Please help me decide

If you decide to go with the ASUS why not get the bundle for the same price. I was just looking at the same one earlier and saw the bundle.
