Today’s article is dedicated to the top 5 reasons why you should go for or refrain from the ASUS ROG Strix GL703VM.

3 reasons to buy ASUS ROG Strix GL703VM

1. Even the standard 60 Hz IPS panel offers excellent image quality

Even if you opt for a configuration with a 60 Hz IPS panel that is not G-Sync-enabled, you will be presented with high contrast ratio, high maximum brightness, wide sRGB coverage and almost no PWM, meaning you can use the laptop for long periods of time without experiencing any negative effect. In addition, our custom profiles further improve the overall image quality.

2. Keeps the hardware running at full throttle even under extreme workload

Another asset of this notebook is its fairly efficient cooling system. Even when the hardware was put under extreme workloads, there were almost no throttling issues, while it was also being fully utilized despite the high intensity of the conducted tests.

3. Thin and light for a 17-inch gaming laptop

The ASUS ROG Strix GL703VM is fairly portable for a 17-incher tipping the scale at 2.95 kg and measuring 23.9 mm in height.

2 reasons NOT to buy ASUS ROG Strix GL703VM

1. Extremely short battery life

Although the battery has a large capacity of 64Wh, the results scored in our tests were rather disappointing due to the higher power consumption. For example, you will get just 220 minutes (3 hours and 40 minutes) for web browsing on a single charge.

2. Suboptimal materials, flexible base unit

The notebook incorporates in its construction mainly plastic which is not a very optimal build material. Additionally, the base unit doesn’t provide rigidness as when pressure is applied to the middle section and the right area of the palm rest, they sink in quite noticeably.
