Any expert reviews on this? Struggling to justify spending a grand on a more high end one. I'm most interested in something that's going to last me a good 5-6 years and still be able to manage new games (even if on lower settings)
Good price!

Instead of £1k now maybe you could spend this and then another 500ish in 3-4 years? Might find Google Stadia much improved by then and all the other cloud gaming offerings, then you could potentially stream games on this machine.
Hard to say something will last 5-6 years, tend to find games have moved on a lot in that time because of a new console generation.
Screens are usually dim on Asus. This the exception?

33% brighter than the old model and I've seen a fair few reviews where people say they're pretty happy with the screen at this price point.

Thanks matey
It was recently £549 at Hughes and about £500 (credit offer) at Very. I was too slow with Very and I'm still hoping to get it for ca. £500 at some point this week. But this ao offer is the best price at the moment.
Very good price but I think £750 is the sweet spot for price performance.

I also got the 17" version via the recent Very offer (£520 - WOOP!!) and it's excellent. I'm not really a gamer, but had been looking at a new desktop for graphic & web design / Photoshop / video editing etc, so the power of this and the ability to take it on the road for the price was a no-brainer.

Performance is fantastic. My poor old desktop struggles with too many programs running at once these days, and just can't cope with 4K video full stop, so this laptop is a dream in comparison. Wish it had more than one video output so I could use both of my desktop monitors and the trackpad is a little funky (it 'rattles' if you tap it, but is fine if you click it firmly), but overall I'm absolutely blown away for the price

Is this any good for video editing
Does anyone know if you can add another hard drive?

From what I've read, the FX505 series has a spare slot for a 2.5 drive. Getting mine delivered today so can update you if you need me to.

This is probably the best laptop for the budget it even outmatches higher priced laptops, the build quality is superb, charge times/battery is alright. It will play all latest games and it has new tech so drivers will be supported unlike older models with driver problems (my last gaming laptop couldn't even use its graphic card due to driver issues, it was an older model). Ryzen comes with spare you so u won't be killing Ur battery with light usage when not gaming. The screen with good refresh rate is really awesome bonus for the prize. This is as good as it gets for the prize, I spend 3 last days looking for a better deal but this is it.

However!!! It is VERY important to buy another 8gb of ram stick for this laptop at speed of 2400mhz, they cost about 30-40 pounds and it's easy to install so don't worry about it. This laptop absolutely NEEDS dual channel ram (ram sticks in both slots( for its CPU to work properly, I think the standard version comes with 1 only. Buying extra stick of ram will increase the performance SO MUCH and it's a cheap upgrade + u get the benefit of 16gb of ram so another wjn for you.

Ram sticks are SUPER easy to install so don't worry if you are not technical. But it's a must with this laptop.

All in all, this is the best deal at the moment. But you must buy another stick of ram or your laptop won't perform as good as it could. In some cases it's a 40-80% performance boost in gaming!!!! For what? 30 pounds? It's not even debatable.

Mind recommending some RAM? I'll probably bug two 16gb sticks if I can and max out what this thing can do.

I don't recommend buying 2x16gb for this laptop 16gb is more than enough you won't get much use out of 32gbs unless you plan working on this laptop with movie editing/graphics. It's not as much the amount that matters if you install 2x4gb ran you would still get more performance than just 1x8gb stick because Ryzen CPU uses dual channel ram to split work 2x ram sticks = 2x bandwidth. 32gb is overkill. I will post some ram links when I get back from work but honestly any 2400 laptop ram will do, if u search for ram with this model name you should find some. 16gb is sweet spot for gaming too.
Just bought this. Thank you and heat added. I just hope there's not a cheaper one available from tomorrow lol
Just rang them because I saw it for £549 and they honoured it beautifully returning £20 into my account. They told me of see it reduced any furtherto let them know and it applies for 10 days after purchase. Lovely customer service

Oh well done you! I thought about you when I listed the new deal at £549. I didn't realise you could get them to honour a lower price so that's great! So glad you got the £20 back!
On their website it says they honor further reductions so I thought why not ring them
You can add that to the new post if you like. It may help someone
