QUICK FEATURE SUMMARY: The ASUS ZX53VW has an Intel i5-6300HQ quad-core processor, and NVidia GTX 960M w/4GB dedicated RAM, 8GB of RAM, and a 512Mb SSD, DVD (yes!), 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 2.0 port, 1 USB C port (smartphone), and SD card reader
CUT TO THE CHASE: If you want the power of an Xbox One or PS4, next-gen console, in a laptop, this is the most inexpensive solution—it is the cheapest laptop that outperforms gaming consoles. This computer is blazingly fast. It played Dark Souls 3 (again a graphics intensive game) at max settings 1080p/30-35fps, and at low settings 1080p/50-60fps. That's BETTER performance than that you get on an Xbox One or PS4.
Negatives? I don't see a pop-out for the battery so you might have to pop screws to replace.
Yes, buy this. Especially if you can get it for <$700 like I did during Black Friday!
The keyboard on this laptop is also fantastic -- it has a great, clicky feel which is fantastic to type on.
Everyone who has said that the touchpad isn't great is correct. The touchpad is not the best I have ever used. Maybe not exactly the worst, but not great. If you tap to click instead of pressing to click, it's much better. Pressing to click shows off a wobbly, loose motion that sometimes misregisters left clicks as right clicks.
That being said, if you're thinking of buying this to play games, I hope that you aren't wanting to do that using the touchpad (does anyone actually do that on a gaming laptop?!). The touchpad is perfectly adequate for navigating around the web and Windows, again, particularly if you don't press to click.
Finally, you might notice that oddly Windows shows this machine as GL553VW Signature Edition. The box mine came in and the sticker on the bottom of the machine both say ZX53VW; I'm not at all bothered by that since all the other specs are completely correct, and hey, it's a signature edition image! No bloatware, hooray!
The fan can get a bit loud when gaming, but it's fairly silent when just using Chrome or lighter tasks light that, and the keyboard and touch pad don't seem to get hot even while gaming, which is a huge plus for me. Even when the fan does get going, it's never intrusive.
Overall, love this machine. Nice rigid case, nice keyboard, and speedy without tons of bloatware (or actually, any that I could spot). Also a lovely screen. Not a perfect touchpad, but if Asus had to cut corners anywhere on this machine, I am so glad they decided to do it there instead of giving it a crummy screen, bad keyboard, or overheating problems, which this laptop has none of.
Update about a month later:
I just wanted to update this review now that I've had about a month with this laptop. I'm very, very happy with it! The screen is fantastic and really is IPS as confirmed by the part number in Device Manager. Dead Pixel Buddy shows NO dead pixels or other problems, and the screen, to me at least, is very bright and great to work on. I still love the keyboard and have zero complaints with it (well, OK, the number pad keys are half size, but Asus or anyone else couldn't squeeze a full size number pad into a 15.6" laptop without compromising the size of the main keys). This laptop plays all the games that I enjoy extremely well: Fallout 4, Grand Theft Auto V, and Cities Skylines all work really well. I haven't had any troubles with this machine and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great, mid-level gaming laptop that doesn't break the bank. :)
I have been a PC gamer for years (Mostly FPS's), and I have only had one SSD(in my last desktop) and I will never not have another PC without one. That was a big plus for me purchasing this laptop with a 500 GB SSD M.2. Start up is super fast, which is expected and it didn't come with a whole bunch of nonsense pre-installed.
500 GB isn't enough for most gamers but its perfect for me seeing that I only keep a few games installed at a time. But you can always install another HDD if needed.
8Gig of RAM is a little low in todays PC gaming world but I am the type of gamer that gets games well after they come out so I am always a little bit behind. Looked up another 8Gig stick and you can get them on Amazon for around $70(which I will be purchasing soon).
Games that I have played on it:
-TF2-High settings (obviously)
-Tomb Raider (2013) High Settings
-Battlefield 4 High Settings
-Battlefield 1 High Settings
-Titanfall 2 High Settings
-Zombie Trilogy High Settings
-Just Cause 3 Med-High Settings (Mainly due to the 8Gig RAM)
-Dead Island 3 Med-High
-Dying Light Medium settings nVidia set it to mostly high but was lagging a bit, turned everything to Medium and runs great.
-Sniper Elite 3 High Settings
All and all a great Mid Range gaming laptop I've owned for about 7 months and love the anti-glare screen and it not being a HUGE laptop is a big plus as well seeing that my last ASUS laptop was gigantic.
