2/25/2019: After using this laptop for a few weeks, the laptop has failed to power on, just out if the blue. I was recovering Windows, it hung, I pressed the power button for 4 seconds (to force power off). The laptop shut down, but will not restart no matter what I do. It is going back to Asus for RMA.
After reviewing many, many laptops, I decided in the SCAR 2 updated with RTX. Keyboard is a real one, not a super flat rediclous, plastic chicklet you get on other notebooks.
However, unlike the last generation, this units came with a single 16 GB DIMM (not dual channel config) and a super slow Intel 660 SSD! Unbelievelable! A super fast gaming rig and Asus went cheap on the SSD! Buy expecting to fix this.
First off, after unboxing and updating, I ran all the standard hardware tests (dead pixel check, keyboard check, cpu/gpu stress tests) and found no issues. That was nice since I was concerned about ordering online with UPS guys tossing it around.
For a gaming laptop, it's not super heavy, though it feels more solid than most laptops I've worked on. The low bezel screen looks gorgeous and feels solid. Opening from a corner doesn't feel like I'm torquing it much at all, and it rests easily where I leave it. The trackpad may not feel as luxuriously anti-friction as a Dell XPS, but neither have I complaints. I will say the keys feel much nicer than my old Toshiba. Not surprising as it was half the price.
One thing which is nice but unnecessary is the sound. Gamers are likely to use headphones anyway, but I was impressed by the volume. I actually had to shut it down overnight instead of leaving it to run all its updates and restarts because it makes what my gf calls a "Fruit Ninja" sound effect when booting up. I find it satisfying, but I'll probably need to silence it from the bios eventually.
Speaking of sound, this *is* a gaming laptop, so if you want something to quietly take notes in class... Maybe don't? It's not horrible, but the fans are quite noticeable when it's not idling. This should go without saying, but for the love of Azathoth do not block the vents with a blanket. It's bad form to strangle such a nice computer.
It came with a code to get Just Cause 4, so I plan to try that out in the next week and update my review with how it actually performs in game. I started out playing Pokemon Uranium while other things downloaded and I may ironically get sucked into a graphically minimal game first. God I hope the next real Pokemon is more like this... What was I taking about? Oh yeah. For now I'll just say that running FurMark stress test on 1920x1080 res and UHD settings it stabilized at 68 degrees and >80fps.
Overall, I think this thing is gorgeous, feels premium, and appears to have solid specs. For reference, I have the 17" w/ RTX 2060 (6GB), NVMe SSD, and 1x16GB RAM. If you want more storage, I recommend going with that model and filling out the spare bay with a 2TB FireCudda SSHD for $80 rather than upping the price much more for less storage.
Once is a fluke, two in a row is probably indicative of a manufacturing problem.
I have an existing Asus ROG laptop and have used Asus parts for numerous gaming desktops, but this quality control issue is seriously worrying. I would not recommend buying this for another generation or two.

The reason why I give 4 stars instead of 5 is that I somehow managed the scratch the back "aluminum brush"-like panel in the first week. The scratch is minor and I don't know how I did it but I would expect it to be tougher. Another thing is that I don't know why, but every time I restart my computer, my customer battery setting gets overwritten. I am pretty sure this should be a Windows 10 issue or ASUS battery control program issue. I have had other Windows 10 laptops in the past before and yet I only encountered this issue with this laptop. I don't consider this to be a deal-breaker but ASUS should definitely look into this as it is very very annoying for anyone who is not tech-savvy.
A couple of warnings for those you who may be purchasing gaming laptops like this for the first time: the fans on this laptop are very loud and the battery life is short. These are technically not cons because powerful laptops and naturally power hungry and need good thermal fans to cool it down or it will encounter thermal-throttling which is even less preferable.
There are only two things I don't like:
1. There should be more memory. If you plan on getting lots of games or have a lot of files for work, it could fill somewhat fast. In some cases, I recommend an external hard drive.
2. Not all games support RTX graphics. Not all games have been updated to support RTX graphics. I've seen it in a few games where it there would be about 20 less frames then normal. Not too much of a problem though, as developers will most likely add support soon enough. You just have to wait a little bit.
