Could this play miniclip games in 720p resolution?
Just purchased ASUS GL702VM-GC137T through wearhouse deals (like new condition). Cost me £693 with 20% discount. Another 2 left. Be quick if you need.

Do you have a link? Thinks they’re all gone now


Yeah. All gone.
Paid £800 odd in November. Great laptop, screen isn’t great but I use a monitor when I play games. PUBG generally runs above 80fps for me.

Yeah. All gone.


Gutted, that was a great deal!
This is that terrible screen one again, isn't it?

You think you've found a performance laptop that ticks all the boxes but then something comes up that spoils the whole package.

Is warehouse 20% back on now?


Yes.
I use my laptop at work and in bed. Only real game I play is football manager. I could play other games if I got this though. Would I be better getting a laptop with the best CPU available. Looking recently that's an i7 7700hq or 8550u and just get inbuilt graphics? Got a 960 pc at home and was looking to upgrade that card next generation to play games on instead. That cpu is a 6600k
Regardless of the poor screen, this is a great price! Heat

I've just taken a GL702VM-GC143T from the Warehouse. It's got the i7-7700HQ, which I wanted over an i5 and 16 GB RAM with a 256GB SSD. I've obviously paid a few hundred more than you to get the processor, memory and storage upgrades but I'd been eyeing up the 15.6" model up for a while and seeing the 17" for essentially the same price and then another 20% off swung it.

Hopefully it meets expectations.

Mine arrived few hours ago. Updating system right now. Its a "like new condition laptop" so.. as expected can't find any scratch or dent on the body. But I need to do full system diagnostics once I update everything. Screen is superb. One of the best IPS panels I ever used. Hope you enjoy urs. only complain is Back-lit Keyboard is not very bright due to red colour.

Nice, yours has arrived quickly! Mine isn't due for a couple of days as i went for standard free delivery, currently looking at sometime Friday onwards. It's nice to hear the condition is immaculate but, as you say, if it was bought as "Like New" that's what you are entitled to expect.

The one I bought is "Used. Very Good", so I'm much more likely to be seeing something on mine, I suppose. I can only wait and determine if any blemishes are unacceptable to me.

As far as the screen is concerned I'm very happy to hear it is so good. I'll be using it for photo and video editing at times - which is one of the reasons for going for the extra grunt of the i7 - so want a top notch screen to go with it.
I sent a Dell back recently because i wasn't happy with the screen. It was too bright with whites, too dark with darker tones and the colour cast was wrong, the tones and shades were well off. I did a bit of recalibrating that improved it somewhat but I gave up on the basis that I shouldn't have to dick around to that extent on a near- £1k laptop just to have the colours look right-ish. And that still wouldn't have solved the "too bright/too dark" issue. I also sent back an otherwise very nice Omen for screen bleed and a strong suspicion that the single hinge would be a point of failure in the not too distant future.

If there are any diagnostics you'd recommend I undertake on this ASUS, I'd be grateful for the input. Also, the photo you have posted makes it look quite black. Is it actually that colour or do you have the Titanium edition, as per the model number?

All of your version have gone now, not even new ones available and the one I went for they only have three used left, which I'm somewhat gratified about because the new ones were about £1500 yesterday.

Mine is Titanium edition. Photo looks dark due to camara angle and poor lighting.

I recommend following apps:

-Hwinfo 64 to monitor temps and check hardware info.
-Asus Realbench for stress testing (cpu/gpu) (I test the system using this tool at least 2hrs)
-Unigine Heaven, Valley & superposition gpu benchmak/stress testing utilities to tax the gpu.

Then install and play a game. Battlefield 4 or Battlefield 1 is very demanding for both CPU/GPU.

IPS panel is very good but I think I can improve further by calibration. Need to properly check using good calibration tool.

BTW I'm planning to install 1tb ssd & additional 8gb ram module (unit came with single 8gb stick) . Also going to repaste heat sinks to improve temperature.

BTW after you test and confirmed all working well, please do a clean install (wait until M$ release Win10 spring update next month). There are way too many crapware.

Excellent, thank you so much, I'll get hold of the diagnostic stuff and give it what for. I'm somewhat embarrassed to admit I've never played a 21st Century computer game. Not one. I played a shoot 'em up game once in an arcade and thoroughly enjoyed it but never graduated to PC gaming. It largely passed me by because I have paid little heed to it, I never got beyond 1990s Windows default games.

However, assuming this beast cuts the mustard, then I will be doing so and saw last night a Youtube demo of its capabilities with some games. Battlefield 1 (think it was 1, it was defo Battlefield) looked great, as did a couple of the others. I was blown away by the image quality and frame rate, so I think I'm likely to have found a whole new way to waste my life away.
I just have to learn more about the best place to get games, what gear to buy, etc etc because i know absolutely nothing about it all. However, I'm already thinking in terms of VR a few months down the line as I like the look of it - assuming it is worth the expenditure at this stage in its technical maturity. In the space of a few months I may have found myself going from Space Cadet Pinball to prowling the virtual battlefield in a headset.

I should also get to grips with thermal paste and other esoteric stuff, I guess. I know little about the purpose and practice associated with it but I'm sure it will behove me to learn. One final question. On the clean install, how are you going about it? From within Windows and taking one of the Recovery options or using an install disk/USB stick?

Yours is going to end up a real kicker when you've finished your upgrade. I won't be doing anything with mine initially, I don't think, as I front loaded the spec in the purchase price, but I might drop in a FireCuda to replace the HDD. They seem to be well regarded and very cost effective. Cheers.

Simply download latest drivers to USB and create windows 10 install disk using Media Creation Tool from Microsoft. Altogether you need two USB drives. Most important driver is GPU.

I usually buy games through Steam/Origin(Battlefield). You can buy game key code from sites like cdkeys.com or cjs cd keys. Always pay using PayPal to avoid hassle.

1060GTX can play games full HD at high/medium quality setting. Some even can play at ultra quality, but to get best fps.. keep setting at high or medium.

Repasting is easy but if your doing this for fist time, do a Google research. Visit notebookcheck.com and read ASUS GL702VM review. Also better to check notebookreview.com forum (Asus sub forum).

To be honest any intel i5 quad core will be sufficient so long as the screen is 1080 or less. Try get the best gpu you can alongside an i5 or i7 if available. The inbuilt graphics, assuming your referring to the igpu built in the cpu, are generally poor for gaming. Any half decent pc game such as battlefield 1 require a dedicated gpu to play at anything over very low settings. Even at lowest settings those igpu will struggle for a playable fps.

The 7700hq is a very capable cpu and will be fine for years to come. It's a decent choice, I'm still rocking my 4 core 8 thread 4790k coupled with a gtx 1070 and at 1440p it's brilliant.

If your resolution is 1080p it will be fine for ages.

Those igpu are really only suitable for very low settings or maybe the odd old steam game. To be fair AMDs version have come a long way but there is still no comparison to a dedicated gpu.

Little point spending huge on a lappy tp play better games if you got a 6600'K', I would buy a used GTX 970 twin fan from ebay, they finish ~£160. Or wait for new cards to get normal. -might be a long wait..
Onboard graphics wont play anything really with an intel chip,just in case thats what you meant. The 6600'K' and a 970 will play anything on the market at 1080p 60hz,~ very high to ultra settings but the chip will be flat out in one or two new games.But it will do it.
The existing gtx 960 should play 3d games at medium settings anyway so give it a go.

Hm... An i7 CPU runs pretty hot on any laptop... The price of the ASUS is a no go for me. Having said that I bought an oldish HP EliteBook 8540 i5 with Nvidia 880m graphics, USB 3 etc loaded with 8GIG ram and 750gig storage for a measly £125.00! off Ebay (original price £1,800 years ago) - Ok it may run SOME modern games at lower settings but it LOOKS nicer plus I did try that old, shockingly gruesome Soldier Of Fortune Payback! - (search YouTube). Yes it ran LIQUID SMOOTH just like melted butter on toast with all highest settings maxed out! - You pays yer money and makes yer choice. Im happy with my lappy against ASUS any day!

Mine arrived today and does have a mark on it but, unlike yours, wasn't "As new" and has a mark on the leading edge of the lid. However, it's tiny and inconsequential to me and is entirely within what I would expect from the description.

Obviously, it's a step by step evaluation. Stage one, external physical examination, it has passed in that it looks as expected. I've turned it on and the screen looks fine on first inspection, no bleed. However, the touchpad and I may well not get on at all. Any tap from half way or below is noisy I don't like it at all.

My current laptops have two buttons and the pads are quiet bordering on silent when tapped. I accept the touchpads these days are usually of this buttonless style but, as it stands, I'm thinking the lack of smooth downward travel and the associated "clack" is going to end it for me.

It may be I have to spend some time to learn to use a different device in a different way but at the moment even moving the pointer across the screen from one edge to another is generating three separate "clacks". Basically, it seems like there is a gap of a millimetre or so underneath the touchpad from half way down and any downward pressure on it makes a noise.

Yes, I could use an external mouse but it rather defeats the object of having a laptop. I have it on my lap 99% of the time so if the touchpad is then that's a massive negative.

Did you try to reinstall touch pad drivers? Try to download latest from Asus. Also update the Windows 10. I don't have any serious touch pad issue. But most of the time I actually use mouse. And also set windows power profile to performance and disable USB selective suspend (Advanced power settings).
Guys is it worth buying this in terms of screen?
I have heard negative things about screen
Any help would be appreciated
Cheers
