      Think this thing can take gaming laptop of the year?

        0:56 Dave always spilling the dirt on new laptops .

      3. J.M. Mencias

        I wonder how this will compare to the 2021 Legion 5. I've been thinking of getting the Legion for some time now.

      4. Dhanushchess 2006

        @Naman Gupta i don’t think so

      5. Dr. Anas

        Can you please talk about the speakers and display does it really have issues like speaker farts and screeb flickering . Does it really matter ?! Is it a big issue if anyone in the comment knows about that or have experience such a thing with it can u tell me plss

    2. Suman Thapa

      Win + shift + s Much better than print scr.

      Two things with Asus gaming laptop. What the heck is wrong with the webcam? Sure, you can choose not to use it, but not included with a laptop? Who the heck thinks that's a good move? It's not like removing that will make already overpriced Asus laptop any cheaper. And the price. As far as I can remember, a few tech youtube claim you can get 5900 3080 G15 with 2000 dollars. Well, good luck finding one. In that price, even without a webcam, I think a lot of consumers can manage. But we are in a hyperinflation era anyway, people simply have money to burn. No matter it's wise or not.

      Ok, main drawbacks: the screen is bad. Is fast and hi res and the hardware is powerful, but is too much res to move recent games at the top hz it supports, so makes no sense, and since is fast, lacks the bright of slower, more conservative screens. The best combo would have been the same fast screen with a 1080p screen. Also, the laptop is decent looking, but nowhere close to a XPS or Alienware laptop.

    5. leeger777

      Well Apple still needs to address if this SSD is really an issue. But other than the soldered on SSD, I agree as I have a MBA shortly after buying a Slim 7. I was looking for a fan less laptop for quite awhile with decent specs and performance and this has it.

    6. Aakarsh Fadnis

      For anyone that's received this laptop, what temps are you getting on CPU and GPU when gaming at max settings?

    7. nicholas kanyagia

      Dave, there's a 3080 model thats 1,999 (on bestbuy)...... only difference with the 2,499 version is it has 16GB RAM and not 32GB. Do you think it's worth it over the 3070 version?

      1. WEEBALO :3


    8. Nishanth nish

      dave can you please say where you get your wallpapers from or what you search for in google for that.

    9. Azeem Q

      Anyone know what webcam this is in 4:50?

      1. WEEBALO :3

        He said it was a super shitty 720p one from a decade ago

    10. Dylan Young

      “ it’s 1700$ “ *goes on amazon link* WHY IS IT 2500$!!

    11. Zealous Fervor

      Share that wallpaper please! I dig it.

    12. Erick Chavez

      What game is he playing on 4.00 ??

    13. polad saher

      Press windows+W. No one uses print screen button anymore

    14. Christopher Strunk

      I really wish I could get this without the dot grid

    15. Mohammad Alkrad

      where do you sell your laptops?

      1. WEEBALO :3

        He doesn't sell laptops

    16. J K

      So I didn't get the love for the G15 over the G14. My only complaint on the G14 is that the screen resolution is very sub optimal, I would prefer a 2K screen on any laptop over a 1K. And they only put the 2K G14 out there for a big bump in price.

    17. Santosh Benda

      I am happy with my g14 cus it has (ANIME MATRIX)

    18. Rin

      I'm torn between this (the Ryzen 7 version) and the Razer Blade 15 (both with RTX 3060), not sure what to go for.

    19. Master Yoda

      Need that led tho why they removed it

    20. Someone Keadan

      Hi, What did you recommend me to buy from Asus laptops, for architecture apps: revit, lumion, v-ray, autocad and sketchup ? What ram, what procceor, what graphics, what did you really recommend ?? Thanks you.

    21. [CTO]

      You didn't talk about the CPU :( Biggest selling point for me !

    22. Nanez ferrer

      msi ge76 raider with intel i9 and rtx 3080 16 vram is the most powerful laptop as of today

    23. SmellyCat Gaming

      This or the eluktronics prometheus?

    24. bib joules

      Please help me choose which one has better performance (in terms of 3d modeling and rendering, and a little gaming haha): ROG Zephyrus G15 (Ryzen 7 with gtx 1660ti) or Legion 5i (i7 with rtx 2060)

    25. Craig

      can't find it anywhere 😢

    26. James Win

      Dave would you recommend this over the Zephyrus Duo? Debating which one to get for gaming AND streaming purposes

    27. Mathieu Diep

      Could you tell us why the last year model wasn't presented on this channel ? And compared to this one, the 4900hs version isn't having a better price value ?

    28. Helios Arcady

      What is that webcam that you showed? Looks pretty compact.

    29. HVideos&More

      Great Video Dave! Quick question, would you consider this over the Razer Blade 15 2021 3070rtx? I know it is a bit morr expensive but that it isn't a problem personally. My biggest concern is overall reliability because there is not Zero support from Asus and Razer in my country. Basically, someone is buying the laptop from USA and bring it to my country. So, I won't be able to return it neither. I am looking for a very solid and reliable gaming laptop mostly for work and some single player gaming like GTA V and maybe Cyberpunk. I would really appreciate your opinion. Thank you

    30. Резник Иван

      these laptops will be at least 2 times overpriced comparing to the prices he said

      1. Bairaqar Pinker

        В Америке всегда дешевле ноуты, да и вся техника так что не факт.

    31. Jin Raigami

      9:24 Deciding point. I ain't keep changing my display for this.

    32. fake name

      what webcam is that? looks good on the laptop

    33. Dayne Zuest

      Do you know when they are going to update the 17" with the AMD CPU's and the Nvidia 30-series???

    34. ClearWaterJunky

      I read comments that said it was prone to show signs of wear quickly. I wish razer would have integrated the ryzen 9 this year. I really want macbook pro build and sound quality in a high end gaming laptop.

    35. Mathias Sunardi

      Thanks to you, I got one. I like it so far. The RAM limitation having one soldered and only one swappable is annoying. Luckily, I didn't have the speaker issue some people reported, but ASUS may have to do a better QC job. One quirk I still can't figure out is that when connected to an external monitor (HDMI) and having the lid closed, the laptop would go to sleep on its own at random times, even with it plugged in. I've observed anything between 30 to 60 minutes runtime, sometimes more, before it goes to sleep on its own. I've looked at the power settings, and made sure it won't go to sleep when plugged in. Is there any other place/settings I should check? Re: print screen, Fn+F6 brings up Windows' Win+Shift+S screen capture tool. Edit: after a Windows update, the HID I2C driver no longer works, and now the touchpad doesn't work (Device Manager > Human Interface Devices > I2C HID Device has error code 10). I've installed drivers from ASUS, updated the BIOS to version 404, and a few other things, nothing worked. Edit 2: finally got it to work again somehow ... 1) uninstall I2C HID Device, 2) installed ASUS Precision Touchpad driver (download from MyAsus app), then 3) run the .bat script from ... or something like that. Edit 3: it completely stopped working now ...

    36. darecki607

      Maybe G15 vs MacBook M1?

    37. saldb

      Cocaine and porous surface doesn’t fit.

      43 years of my life wasted, why wasn't I born in the 2000'nds? Now the best computers are being made the minute we get old... WOW

      1. Ksanbah Lyngwa

        If you were born at that time you'll be wishing you were born in the 2030s because of how cool 2040/50s laptops would be, (assuming they still exist at that time).

      2. SpammingTitanXD

        Atleast you got money to buy

    41. mrsuri33

      still no webcam damn hard tu use as a work laptop for me unfortunately damn device looks realy nice but the camrea is a must for online meetings


      BUT IT IS $1754 FOR THE BASE MODEL, NOT $1499...

    43. gogobadboy

      Hi Dave, are you going to review the g14 2021 model. I am really looking forward to it😁

    44. Firas Bajjar

      ASUS quality control for their laptops is dodgy and their after sale support is among the worst IF not the worst. Honestly until ASUS addresses these issues I do not recommend jumping the gun now on their laptops.

    45. Nik Gervae

      Does the panel scooping under to prop it up make it uncomfortable to use this laptop on your, you know, lap? It looks like it would dig in above my knees. It sounds like I really don't need a 3080, unless I want more than 24GB of RAM, and I might. But I definitely don't want the white model. Can you get the 3080 in gray? Do you have to crack it open to get the 3070 model to 24GB, or is it possible to order it pre-configured? Shame the only purchase link is to Amazon; I really try not to support them any more. Best Buy shows both FHD and QHD models, it looks like FHD uses a different GPU.

    46. Akash Patel

      Hey Can u review Alienware m15 r4

    47. Fahad Abdullah

      Legion will be the only competitor. Time will tell.

    48. Timension

      Does anyone know when it will be available in europe?

    49. Alexander Sommer

      Hi Dave - would be AWESOME if you add to your review criterias sustainability & social aspects (labor conditions) - if we want to improve this world, these aspects have to be considered, too.

    50. azhar krumtally

      If you don't live in the US you will pay around $2100 (16Gb RTX3070 Version) at best, I searched everywhere.


      Isn't the keyboard RGB?

    52. Nguyen Diep

      The aloof female critically tug because oven seemingly pop beyond a cheerful sheep. tough, overwrought activity

    53. Thula Ryan Skhosana

      Dave Lee can you please donate me one of you're laptops 🙏🏾 I really need a new laptop.

    54. Melm

      how much did you get paid for this asus review?

    55. Jonnyinter1

      Great vid! Can you review the new G14 for those of us looking for a slightly more portable/affordable machine?

    56. Adnan Khan

      whats the workaround if there is no print screen

    57. Nikola Georgiev

      No it's not the king.

    58. krow Worst

      The wiry foam subcellularly paint because brow cytomorphologically join failing a delirious cd. curly, wanting avenue

    59. tomble womble

      No idea why you don't mention the lack of mux switch and the impact to performance.

    60. Ragib Rahman

      so kinda like the asus vivo book

    61. bhola prasad

      Is laptops sold by HIDevolution good? Can I trust them? I am thinking about purchasing this laptop on Newegg website as on Amazon they didn't included any import fees and duties for shipping the product to india.

    62. Vince Osido

      Can you play gta v and live stream with this laptop? Tia!

    63. jacktjong

      I have the Asus ROG Strix G15 with RTX 3070 and gotta say I love it. It looks good, performs amazingly, only thing I dislike is that the material of the laptop smudges pretty easily and feels rather difficult to clean. But everything, from the screen to port placements to trackpad to performance to build quality, it all feels great.

    64. gzus584

      Windows + Shift + S

    65. Mansoor Ejaz

      For backlight on white one, you can change it to RED or BLUE color to make it more visible - it has RGB backlight

    66. ション0 n-e-m-e

      supprised they couldn't put the screenshot/print key next to the media button on the top .😅

    67. Yasmin Hioga

      so weird to see a red pcb lol

    68. Mauro Del Core

      How perform vs blade 15?

    69. Bekir

      Would you recommend this or the Rog Strix G15 (with Ryzen 7 and 3070)?

    70. Dsirius 3

      Dude, I enjoyed this video from start to finish and what is most important, really convinced me that this is the best laptop which we can buy in 2021. Keep posting videos like this.

    71. Veli Şiar

      I think what makes that white color option so attractive is the Contrast they managed to implement with the help of that black bezeled screen... I love that detail neverthless

    72. Wesley L

      The reason why 1 wanne buy this laptop is because it has no webcam.. I just don't understand why everybody gets so berserk about a good webcam.. For me, a laptop without one, is a reason to buy one! Great revieuw, thank you sir. Love from the Netherlands!!!

    73. Miguel Angel Medina Rise

      Honestly im glad rog laptops do not have webcams so we can choose a higher quality one ourselves.

    74. Amit Chopra

      The first wrist undeniably waste because parentheses psychologically pick near a ajar adjustment. puffy, macho mother

    75. Matthew Asher

      Anyone knows what the holes on top are for?

    76. James On

      Are the 3060 versions of gaming laptops worth it or is better to just shell out the extra few hundred and go for the 3070s?

    77. Kausar Parveen

      I really like your rewies

    78. Shyamsundar Gupta

      Hey i need to a purchase asap I need a good laptop on which I can game too and has the capability of handling 30tabs of chrome at one time. My budget is $1500-1800

    79. Dmitry Astapkovich

      We need full sized arrows!.. Wide Right Shift is far less important for gaming and typical day-to-day activities than arrow. I just don't get it =(((

    80. Mr.Gregory

      How is the fan noise and thermals? Was looking at the new MSI GS stealth 30 series but I am very turned away by the reports of how loud the fans are and hot the laptop gets. Any reports on this for this new G15?

    81. Berk Can

      do people really buy this stupid ugly stuff while there is m1 MBP xD

    82. Thompter S. Hunson

      I loved that back display thing. Super cool for like DJs, etc.

    83. Saul Martinez

      Bless up, you’re the best in the game. Anything recommend by you I know won’t disappoint

    84. Neos E2

      Where can I find some wallpapers like this on his thumbnail? I've been searching for them for days now and can't find any..

    85. Tuugeboi

      "Having the higher resolution screen can be a bit of a disadvantage" no, it really can't. Every one of the games you tested has a render resolution slider, just use that if 1440p is too heavy to run. Having the option of running at 1440p is objectively better than NOT having it.

    86. wegottagamer

      I have been a laptop gamer for 10+ years now, the weight of the laptop does not bother me at all. Is this something that bothers people? I take my laptop to my friends all the time, I have a ruck sake, lifting it up is nothing and once it is on my back, it is hardly even noticeable. I would for sure, have a more chunky laptop that provides more power and better stats. Having a heavy laptop with better stats is better than having a lighter laptop which under performs.

    87. voda alex

      When is the best time to buy a laptop? Is it a good time to buy one right now ?

    88. Inxide Out

      I have a question so what is better Strix G17 or Zephyrus G15

    89. DJ Slaughter

      I see a $1200 model one being sold at sam's club. Would that one still be good?

    90. Julian Donders

      im gonna save up and buy the one in 2022

    91. H0w1tz3r

      I am so torn on this one, I need to replace my gaming laptop but I need a thunderbolt3 and currently none of the new AMD laptops come with Thunderbolt3. I wouldn't miss the webcam that much but it would be nice to have the Windows Hello option which I use on all my other devices.

    92. im Xidaz

      my fave color is honestly 5 imo

    93. ikhwan

      im just here bcs i love your voice

    94. the_random

      no web cam

    95. A Rohit

      Can you please tell which external camera you are using Thank you

    96. Johnny Wang

      Personally I like my bottom left control key wider. So I would take the gs66. Right now in the UK u can buy the old model ( with 2060) for £1.3k for the performance I'll get and the price it's probably one of my top choices. There is definitely better options. The g15 is very expensive a cool 1.7k-1.8k it's portable and has great performance. But I hardly ever need to take my laptop around unless I go on vacation and I happen to have hw to do in the meantime

    97. tarek alsalloum

      Still waiting for the strix 15 and 17 review Good video though

    98. Moon

      Where can I get the wallpaper

    99. evilemperordude

      Battery life honestly isn't that big of a deal for me. I don't really expect to be using it for very long periods of time anywhere where I don't have access to an electrical outlet.

    100. Tonygan Free

      For me, with all respect, a laptop should have a potential like from a desktop (especially the keyboard layout with numpad, seen on ones with 15.6" or bigger displays), but on your lap. What you're looking for, or aiming at, is a notebook (max size should be until 14" display, and with that kind of keyboard layout you're showing off), which is more practical and mostly like mobile/tablet-ish powered but with fan. That's the difference I think should be stated.
