The ROG Strix Hero Edition GL503 is designed to give you the best balance of performance from the CPU, GPU, storage, and RAM. It packs an Intel Core i7-7700HQ Processor 2.8GHz processor (Turbo to 3.8 GHz) to capably handle any CPU intensive gameplay tasks as well as provide raw horsepower for everyday productivity. It’s complemented by the powerful GeForce GTX 1060 GPU which lets you take framerates to 120fps and beyond on a full HD display, with headroom to spare.
To round things out, the 16GB of 2400MHz DDR4 memory improves multitasking capabilities while the 256GB PCIe SSD ensures speedy game and texture load times.

The ergonomic 0.25mm-deep keycap curve is comfortable to the touch, and the 1.8mm travel distance with ROG-exclusive Overstroke technology enables earlier actuation and a longer over-stroke distance- for fast, accurate and effortless keystrokes to up your actions per minute.
The ROG Strix Hero Edition features highlighted QWER keys, designed for easier hand placement in MOBA games, even when viewed through the periphery.

Strix Hero Edition delivers clearer, louder, and more accurate audio so every action sounds real - all powerfully delivered through two expansive side-firing speakers. Smart amplifier technology monitors the audio output and makes real-time adjustments, so you can pump up the volume without worrying about damaging the cones - and that makes output up to 200% louder than before, with increased dynamic range and bass. ROG’s Sonic Studio III even offers in-game noise cancellation and voice-volume stabilization, so you’ll hear even the quietest sounds and keep your attention on the game!

The 17" screen is easy on the eyes and GREAT for editing and watching HD videos. Side by side with my studio HDTV, the laptop is sharper, crisper, and has better color. The facial tones are more realistic than my HD TV. That's probably due to the 4 GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics included in the unit. The sound is great for watching movies up close. I have the setting at 56% and it is loud enough to enjoy the movie. I put the volume up to 100 but it was unnecessary. Also, I noticed there is no cracking or rumbling in the speakers at a high volume while watching the movie. I do not use the laptop speakers for my work of music/video editing. I use KRK Rokit 5 Desktop monitors for that. The unit has a combination mic/speaker 1/8" analog input jack for audio use. I have to plug and unplug the different jacks in to use the external pro studio monitors on the desk. I am holding back the 5th star for that reason. I will order a usb to mic adapter to compensate for the design. I'm sure other people might not use the Laptop as I do and NOT find an issue with the missing mic port.
The laptop is not short on usb ports, which another reason why I chose this particular unit. I was especially concerned with the ethernet RJ45 port that is not included in some other newer laptops. In my field of professional music I need to know that I am connected by ethernet hardwire to the outside world. Because I use a digital format for work I need the hardwire and not the WiFi for full assurance of transmission. The WiFi works well with my wireless printer and a couple of other devices.
As far as a gaming computer, it's not my purpose for having this unit. BUT, the fact that it can handle pro use music editing and video editing tasks effortlessly says a lot about this unit. It does not get hot using it as I do, and I do not hear the fan turn on like when I used my wife's other brand laptop, with lesser ram and lesser CPU power, for the same tasks.
This is a Windows 10 x64bit Operating system. The editing software I use needs that and still another reason for selecting this unit. I was surprised at the syncing features this unit had while setting it up. After setting up it looks like my desktop, minus a lot of app icons, but having the same wallpaper, mail, and a few other synced apps. The setup was effortless and without issue. I typed my email address and the software took it from there.
So, let's talk about the units outer features. It's flat black which looks nice on MY desk and not out of place as a silver or other bright color might look while I'm trying to concentrate on my work. (No distraction). A lot of musicians work in dim lighting, more for concentration than effect. This brings me to the LED backlit keyboard. It has an app that allows you to choose what kind of lighting you want on your keyboard. The colors follow the whole spectrum so you can really customize it to your liking. Also, you can choose a mode if you would like to rotate colors or areas that are lit. Very nice feature. I have mine on a static soft blue/gray. It's just enough to see where to place my hands in the dimly lit studio. Very cool.
If I were going to carry it around I might be concerned with the weight as it is slightly heavy being a 17" laptop FULL PC. I do plan to carry it occasionally to some events but not daily, so the weight is not a problem for me. Again, this is a professional musician TOOL for me, so I spent accordingly. It will pay for itself and I need for it to last a long time.
Because I plan to take it with me to some events away from the studio and house, I also bought the 3 year accident plan. I have full confidence in ASUS products. I bought the ASUS for the brand. I currently have a ASUS desktop pc that I have been using for a few years without problems. It is my second ASUS desktop unit. I gave the first one away to my adult son, as I was upgrading to the one I have now. I find them trouble free for the hardware part of a computer system. My computer issues have only been software problems.
All and all its a very good unit. But, its only been two days of use.
I was looking at the MSI Apache and Raider before purchasing this. I watched a LOT of reviews, and I just couldnt justify the price difference for me. I am not a big PC Gamer, but I do a lot of video and photo editing. This thing does EVERYTHING I have asked it too with ease. Very limited render buffering on huge files. I am impressed. The initial setup and install took 5 hours for Windows and such, which concerned me, with some of the reviews with failed hard drives. My initial purchase was without a SSD, and just a 1TB Hybrid Drive. I purchased a ADATA XPG 256GB SSD for boot, and this thing SCREAMS even more. Literally takes 6 seconds too boot.
I was very worried leaving Macbooks, but I am very pleased with my decision. I just couldnt justify an extra $1500 in a Mac on top of the purchase price for this. Its been a pleasant transition for me, and very impressed with how the Windows experience with W10 has been.
Haven't bought a decent laptop since 2004.
The fans get a bit loud but it runs really good.
