Amazing laptop for the money.
I really loved this laptop. It ran everything extremely fast. Boot up speeds were less than 5 seconds! Only reason I had to return was because the left shift key got stuck. Must have been a manufacturer flaw. Other than that I wish I had kept it. This laptop is an absolute beast and it's incredibly thin! I own an older g752 laptop and it's heavier than this g701vi! Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a gaming laptop worth their money. The 120hz screen is amazing for FPS games like overwatch as well. Asus doesn't have many gaming laptops with 120hz, so make sure to get this one if you want the smoother screen!
