Very good laptop for the money, in laptops GTX 1070 is shown to beat the newer RTX 2060 in performance. GTX 1070 is also a significant upgrade from 1060 with performance closer to GTX 1080 MaxQ.

Did my share of research for a decent gaming laptop and this came out top value wise, RTX is pretty useless on laptops at the moment, and this performs around the same as a 2070 Max-Q

In terms of specs, the core count and speed is 30% ahead of the 1060, and 40% ahead of 1060 Max-Q

17 inch version is shown to have better thermals than 15 inch version, so it doesn't throttle until 3-4 hour mark during gaming sessions.

The i7 6 core processor is shown to give an extra 5-10fps during modern games compared to the i5 4 core (8300H)

8GB video memory makes it ideal for VR.

This laptop is different from the one posted on ebuyer in that this has the 144Hz, 100% SRGB screen as oppose to the 120Hz, for the same price making it a pretty decent upgrade.

Also comes with 2 years warranty, which is quite nice.

I've bought one for ahem.. spreadsheets work on buisness trips of course..

Good deal. Bang for buck, this would be my strike price.
Stay away from this laptop. Even at this price point, sheer number of BSOD issues resulting from poor cooling...this laptop is not fit for purpose.

Done my research on that extensively, there is a model from ASUS (503 15 inch) that has over heating issues, the only BSOD issues for this model are originated from 2 person on reddit, 1st guy had SSD driver issues that was fixed by Samsung Evo drivers, second guy tried to down clock CPU but couldn't keep it stable.

I have ordered, so I will let you know if there are any

I'm also in the market for a laptop with these specs, please let me know how it performs. I'm just worried about throttling as I have long sessions over the weekends. Also, is the screen ips?
Yup screen is IPS with 100% SRGB. Looks like the price has gone up.
I have the Asus gl504, 144hz gtx 1060. Great bit of kit
