DISCLAIMER: Many of my daily-driver issues stem from the "AI Gaming" Software. I'll mark any of my points with "(AI ISSUE)" to denote that this is an issue that can be solved by disabling/uninstalling that software.
-Excellent performance. Like hot damn.
-Fast boot from shutdown state
-240HZ screen is ridiculously smooth. good color and brightness
-I/O: 2x USB-C. 2x USB-A. Gigabit Ethernet. HDMI. SD. 3.5mm jack. Great show for a thin and light.
-WiFi card is very capable. I was getting 300Mbps down from my access point right next to my desktop that has proper antennae which was only getting 220Mbps
-(AI ISSUE) Battery life is AMAZING once you delete the AI app. Battery was 2 hours with the app, 6-7 hours without.
-Distracting light bleed around keycaps
-Large Power Brick. This just seems to be an issue I have with all windows laptops. Apple does their power bricks right for portability. Not specifically a MEH for this laptop alone.
-Webcam below screen. I don't intend to use it much, but beware if you do a lot of video calling.
-(AI ISSUE) Loud Fans
-No extendable feet on bottom
-1920x1080 screen. Plenty for some, not enough for others. the only upgrade is a 60hz 4k. I would like to see a 1440p option at this price point.
-No HDR. again: take it or leave it, but it would be nice to have.
-No G-Sync. Would also be nice to have on a $2700 gaming laptop with a flagship mobile GPU.
-No Touchscreen. I don't like touchscreens on laptops, but it is worth mentioning.
-No fingerprint unlock. No windows hello face id. Some people are into that sort of thing.
-(AI ISSUE) HOT. thin and light comes with a trade-off, and this laptop gets toasty under heavy loads. I wish it had flip feet on the bottom to give the option for better airflow during CPU/GPU intensive loads. Even runs hot at idle unless you uninstall the AI app. Now that I've uninstalled it, its running at a good temp during regular browsing and office workloads (35-45C)
-SCREEN FLEX. I would have liked some sort of aluminum or magnesium to stiffen the screen. I worry about its longevity. But there's another trade-off for a thin and light. But at the $2700 price point, you's think they could have sprung for a stiffer light material
It really is an excellent laptop once you remove the AI app and tweak things to your liking. Discrete enough to be acceptable in an office. Powerfull enough to chew through games. Enough IO and hardware to satisfy almost any gaming/professional use case. Construction could have been a little better. There could have been more features (bio-metric security, G-Sync, HDR, etc) that I would have liked to see on a $2700 laptop.
I’ve spent 8 months daily driving this for work, gaming, entertainment, and hobby design/film-making. It goes into my backpack every single day and gets transported all around, so it’s had a pretty good real-world durability test.
I stand by everything in my initial review.
NOTHING has degraded yet. Battery life is still a great 6-7 hours of web browsing and regular tasks at about 80% brightness. Chassis is showing zero signs of wear. I could probably wipe it down and still pass it off as New-Open-Box.
It’s stood up to my work environment (warehouse / inventory management), though I am of course careful with it. I’m not slinging it around or dropping it like a toughbook.
Gaming is still excellent. Still wish it had folding feet on the bottom to raise it off of surfaces for better airflow. Temps are noticeably better (4-5*C) when raised off of a surface or suspended between my knees.
Fans haven’t gotten any louder and there’s no evidence of dust or crap build-up in any of the vents (surprising given my work environment).
The key caps aren’t degrading at all. The mouse pad still has just as sharp a click as day one.
Just still excellent. The heat, lack of gsync, lack of HDR, and lack of a middle-ground (1440p, 144hz) display is the only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars. But I’d give 4.7 if I were able.
The criticisms I heard most often were that the camera was positioned badly and the screen doesn't get too bright. It is true that the camera is positioned in a way that makes it point straight up your nose. But I much prefer having thin screen bezels over optimal camera placement because I barely use the camera. That said, the image quality is still decent.
As for the screen, I rarely use the laptop outdoors and the screen is not really that dim so it is again not an issue for me.
If you are looking for a thin and light gaming laptop this is one of the best options.
To make a long story short, I sent that laptop in over 4 times to get serviced and eventually was gifted a new laptop. 2 years had passed and I got an even better asus gaming laptop! The same exact issues happened on this laptop which eventually left me with a burnt up motherboard. 400 dollars to replace at local shop. This is my apprehension with the machine I have now.
My model is the gigabyte Aero 15 - SA with the 144hz screen and the 1660ti.
There is not much bloatware on the pc that I see. A few ads on the windows but really a fine experience with windows home 64.
I have not completely used the battery from 100 - low but I have used it for about 2.5 hrs off and was sitting right at 68%. Not bad while watching videos on 80% brightness and downloading programs and such.
My music production is going to be a breeze on this thing. I am also messing around a bit with blender so I feel the GPU will come in handy for things other than gaming in the coming years.
Games were doing well right out of the box but the CPU hits upwards of 4 mhz constantly and the GPU was getting about 1770 mhz constantly. To me this means the full power of the machine was there at the start. Problem is that checking temps had me between 88-92 degree C. If i through my ac on which directly hits the laptop from about 7 feet away, temps would drop nicely to 80 on both CPU/GPU.
So, cool airflow definitely helped a great deal. Still feels hot. Gigabyte said in support that this is normal. I refuse to have another burnt motherboard and issues every 10 months. Problem is I never checked temps back in the day as I was ignorant to checking then. My equipment may of been hitting over 100 C and I never knew, so I had issues. Since then I have built my own pc and have been a part of the scene.
Overall, with some program tweaks and such using XTU and CAM, I have temps that sit around 75 max for cpu and 86 max for gpu. This is a nice spot but I feel a bit limited. I understand it is a 1660ti and not a 2080 max q or anything. Gaming is beautiful and you at least get around 100 fps in many titles without sacrificing incredibly hot hardware.
Overall still 4/5.
