Asus ROG Strix GL702VM review was done by folks at notebook italia and they were quite impressed with it. Asus ROG Strix GL702VM will be made available in two SKUs, both Intel Skylake-H processors and equipped with Nvidia GeForce 1060 GTX discrete graphics card. Asus ROG Strix GL702VM review follows below.
Asus ROG Strix GL702VM specifications include either Intel Core i7-6700HQ or Intel Core i5-6300HQ processor and as mentioned earlier both belong to Intel Skylake family since Kaby Lake architecture does not have a high performance chipset yet. The processor is backed by up to 1TB 7200rpm hard drive, up to 512GB SATA3 SSD in addition to 256GB PCIe Gen3X4 SSD.
Asus ROG Strix GL702VM as mentioned by notebookitalia supports up to 32GB of DDR4-2133MHz RAM and various storage solutions as mentioned below. It is quite slim and compact measuring 415 x 280 x 22 ~ 24 mm and weighing 2.7 kilos with battery. Other than that, the Asus ROG Strix GL702VM gaming laptop is virtually identical to the Asus GL502VT when it comes to chassis but it is bigger and more powerful thanks to some of the latest generation of hardware.
Asus has not released pricing information for Italy but we do know that the two configurations will cost 1399 and 1599 dollars respectively. So if you are looking for gaming laptops under 1000 dollars, you will have to look somewhere else.
