Bottom Line

The ASUS FX502VM-AS73 offers great gaming hardware for a great price, though the small SSD is not ideal for installing all of your favorite games and the keyboard layout is not ideal for those games that require the arrow keys.


The ASUS FX502VM-AS73 is a bestselling gaming laptop that has received positive reviews for its fast Intel processor, dedicated 10-series NVIDIA graphics, brilliant Full-HD display and for its great price. Some reviewers have mentioned that the keyboard layout is a bit weird and that the trackpad can be prone to misclicks. Another criticism is the fact that the ASUS FX502VM-AS73 offers subpar battery life, however this is not uncommon for gaming laptops with their power hungry hardware. Lastly, some noted that under load it can run a little too hot for their liking.

    The FX502VM offers nearly everything that comes with the GL502VM without significantly impacting performance. The SKU with the lowest-end TN display, however, should be avoided due to its very poor contrast.
