This is a thin but large sized 6.6 pounds laptop. So, it is not good for travelers and people who has to carry their laptop around. If you want to play games at home or want a laptop as a desktop replacement, this will suit your needs.

For playing in darker environments, this laptop features Aura RGB-backlit scissor-switch keys with lighting control in four areas. So, keep a single backlit color or keep a mixture of colors as keys back-light. You don't have to worry about the heating problem, cause this laptop features a cooling system for processor and GPU. Overall, this laptop is a budget-friendly powerhouse for gamers and for heavy usage.

We have seen a 15.6 Inch display in ASUS ROG Strix GL553VD-DS71 and in this model, you can enjoy 17.3 Inch Full HD display with 178 degrees viewing angle. Getting a Full HD display for this price is very acceptable.

Like ASUS ROG Strix GL553VD-DS71, this gaming laptop is powered by 7th Generation Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor and comes with 16 GB DDR4 RAM, 1 TB HDD @ 7200 RPM and budget-friendly NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 GPU with 4 GB VRAM. These specs are enough for even hard-core gamers who are in budget.

Processor is faster and better than previous generation Intel i7-6700HQ processor, 16 GB DDR4 RAM is enough for even high graphic games and 1 TB HDD @ 7200 RPM has good read write speeds for playing games. But an SSD storage drive is recommended for playing games. You can add an SSD drive later.

Now coming to 1050 GPU, this is a budget-friendly GPU which can handle even high-graphic games smoothly. We have another similar but powerful GPU, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti in ASUS ROG Strix GL753VE-DS74 and ASUS ROG Strix GL553VE-DS74 models. This 1050Ti is better than 1050 GPU and we recommend you this GPU over 1050 GPU. If you can afford that extra money, these two laptops are better than ASUS ROG Strix GL753VD-DS71 model.

You are getting an HD webcam, USB 3.0 port, Type C port, 802.11 ac WiFi adapter and stereo speakers which can deliver amazing sound. Has good connectivity features and options needed for gamers


Overall, this laptop is good for hard-core gamers and people who want to run demanding applications at home or at office. If you want smaller display, take a look at ASUS ROG Strix GL553VD-DS71. And if you can spend extra dollars, take a look at ASUS GL753VE-DS74 and ASUS GL553VE-DS74.
