If I had all kinds of money to throw away, I'd get a laptop with an aluminum body, a 4K, 144hz monitor, a Titan GPU, etc., etc. If (like me) you're a step above the casual gamer, and you want to play games on high (to ultra) settings, but mostly you use your PC to stream videos, work online and word process, this laptop is a fantastic buy. I've had this thing for over a week and played a few games to see how it fares. So far so good. (I'll try Skyrim on ultra to see how the frame rate holds up. I'm sure other reviewers can tell you all about it.)
I like the larger screen. The laptop only weighs just under 6 lbs. The battery life is okay, about 5 hours. Keep it plugged in to game. The keyboard doesn't hurt my hands when I type for 1 hour straight (I have repetitive motion injuries). There's a lot of real estate on the keyboard and surrounding area, which is nice because I'm over 6 feet tall with large hands. The laptop's design is low key for a gaming system. An unassuming red ASUS stamped on the lid. According to ASUS, this device has "durable MIL-STD-810 military standard construction." I'll take their word for it. The laptop looks and feels plastic, so I wouldn't toss it around on a battlefield. There's no optical drive but who uses those anymore. Buy an external if needed.
One problem I've noticed: the touch pad. It rattles, it's noisy when you click, it doesn't respond well at times, and right-clicking is imprecise and a chore. If you're not lying in bed, connect a mouse to this laptop and you'll be fine.
I checked the advanced display settings, and the system states the monitor has a 44hz refresh rate which doesn't sound great for precision gaming (okay, I just checked again and it says 48hz??) According to ASUS (via a Best Buy answers page), this model's refresh rate was supposed to be 60hz. Yet the ASUS webpage for this model advertises 144hz which is misleading. Plug in some headphones because the speakers are a little quiet.
If major issues come up with this laptop in the next month I'll edit the review. Otherwise, you can't really beat the price ($1095 in February 2019) especially when you consider what's under this laptop's hood. I don't regret buying this.
I purchased the ASUS - TUF Gaming FX705GM on black friday when it was on sale for $999 dollars, and I've had it for about 6 days at the time of writing this, and so far I've enjoyed the crap out of it. It's fast, powerful, quiet (compared to other laptops I've had), and aesthetically pretty to look at.
-Gaming potential. I don't play anything super intensive, but I've turned up the games I do play up to max settings and this laptop handles it like a champ.
-Speed. The SSD/computer in general is lightning fast. I used to have a macbook pro that was slow as molasses so your mileage may vary, but every time I turn this thing on or open a game I'm blown away.
-Screen. Now, I'm not doing photo editing or anything super color intensive, but the screen is crisp, and the colors seem good. It capable of getting quite bright, if that's you thing, and it holds up well against a glare. The only knock is it's got somewhat limited viewing angles (as in it's got a specific sweet spot), but that's yet to cause me issues.
-Size/weight. This is a beefy laptop, there's no denying that. I mean, that's why you're considering a 17" laptop, right? That being said, the bezel on the screen is very slim, which helps the screen feel even bigger, while keeping the overall profile of the laptop smaller than most other 17". It's also very, very light. You're still probably not fitting this thing in a backpack though.
-Heat. I'm going to preempt this with two qualifications: I bought a cooling pad along side buying this laptop in anticipation of it getting hot (holdovers from melting my lap with my old macbook), and I don't play crazy intensive games. That being said, I ran it for the first two day w/o using the cooling pad, and it never really even got close to the temps I got used to. The fan is fairly quiet too, unless you put it in overdrive mode.
-Portability. You probably aren't looking for a 17" laptop because you want to bring it everywhere, though.
-Battery life. This is literally the first time I've used this bad boy not plugged in, but it's only been 30 minute's and we're down to 90%. That's not great. But, honestly, it's no issue for me to keep this plugged in while gaming. Shouldn't be for you either.
-Trackpad. It sucks. Get a mouse. It's just not super responsive, it sort of rattles, and the parts you click feel gross/aren't super responsive. Get a mouse. It's too bad too, because the keyboard is pretty solid but the trackpad sours that experience, slightly.
Takeway: This laptop is worth it. Definitely from it's $999 price point, and probably from it's $1,300-$1,400 price point too. It's designed to be a well priced option with very competitive specs for gaming, and to that end it's exceptional.

the backlit keyboard is red lighting, i would have preferred white. that's my only complaint.
otherwise, great buy, great laptop for the money.
Mi única queja es con el tacto del pad sobre todo porque pareciera que está flojo cuando uno da un toque rápido
