I don't know, the ROG Strix G15 2021, with it's 300Hz display, RTX 3070 Max-P, and AMD Ryzen 5900HX at the same price seems like a worthy challenger as well.

G15 has some speaker and temperature issues, it will be a serious contender but we will have to wait on how lenovo and omen laptops play

This is sold out on best buy. Does that mean it's done? As in they won't be making more of these with these specs?

I don't understand you guys. For me, whatever laptop that has a "max-q" gpu version is immediately discarded. A laptop RTX 3060 beats laptop RTX 3070 max-q. This asus laptop has a nice processor, nice quality and everything... Except the GPU. Why Asus?

Thanks for the review as always. I plan on getting a laptop for games such as Call Of Duty and Apex Legends. I also plan on gaming 75% of the time. How’s the heat management? And do you feel that getting a 1440p will add to that as well? I had a Razer a couple years ago and that thing was scolding hot. I’m debating on either this or the lates HP Omen. Thanks for any input or thoughts.

Your RAM comment is innacurate, I have the white G15 and it came with 16GB RAM, I ran the Crucial RAM scanner and it said I could take out the removable 8GB and add 32GB in its place. I did this for £150 and now have 40GB RAM - it’s the best laptop I’ve ever bought, but buy one with lower RAM and save hundreds by upgrading it yourself.

Hey Great videos, super helpful. I got lucky and picked one of these up on BB, but I do have one (literally only one) fatal issue with it that I'd like to share... maybe important to you or some viewers. Hooking up a Valve Index via the USB 3.2/Displayport connection does NOT fully work. Even though the connection bypasses the IGP, I am losing consistent frames and constant stuttering makes this computer a deal-breaker at this point. Ive contacted ASUS/Valve, for possible fixes and have gotten nowhere. could be a simple Nvidia/USB driver issue because the port has the horsepower obviously. The cable matters USB/Displayport connector works fine on my desktop coming out of an Nvidia 2080ti, so that's not the issue either, and yes all of the ASUS Aura lighting effects and any other BS background processes were stopped/uninstalled. SO although I LOVE this laptop, and hate to even write this, I am returning it. I have no choice because I do a lot of VR. Does anyone have the same issue? or a fix? Thanks for reading the comment :)

9:18 for all owners of the g15, did you encounter any screen problems everytime the screen heats up because of the exhaust vent blowing the hot air towards it? Because it looks one hell of a design flaw for such a good laptop.

I got the similar one Asus Zephyrus g15 GA2xx unit but concern is that my usb mic is not working/compatible on this unlike on Hp omen dc series. I used my usb mic for recording and streaming and it has a audio monitor so no need to plug new jack for audio. I want to try that on Asus but i didn't know how to do that. Any suggestions?

Asus need to improve the build quality and feel of the their lineups especially the G14 and G15+a webcam+ 500 nits brightness+ better quality control. This laptop is the closest to the perfect thin and light gaming/ productivity laptop.

I have the Best Buy version (3070 with 16gb ram) and my top right speaker has no sound coming out of it. I thought my right ear was actually plugged for a while, lol. Do you know if there are any software issues that could be causing this? I really don't want to have to return this thing... The other three speakers work and sound just fine, but the top right one is completely dead.

PLEASE, when possible, do a comparison between the holy trinity of the new G15, Legion and and Omen. To me on paper and from what you've talked about on your channel it comes down to build quality, small hardware differences and a decent price difference. All are sporting the same AMD and two of them 3070. I know the G15 is a fav now, but would love to see how you compare the three.

hey, dave and the comments section! I just got the best-buy version of this laptop and have noticed it doing something kinda strange. when the device is plugged in, the screen looks normal, accurate, and balanced but whenever the device is on battery power, the screen becomes overly vibrant and washed out. have you or anyone in the comments found any way to get around this? It behaves like an adaptive contrast but I have found no setting for it.

I have a question: Since I want to use this machine to photo and video editing, when rendering or using it at full power, in order to get the maximum of it, should I get some special high "watts" power cabel? Should I have it plugged in while using it? I have already heard thing but I am not sure. Thanks in advance.
