ASUS ROG GL502VS-DB71 15.6-inch

The ASUS ROG GL502VS-DB71 is a bestselling high-end gaming laptop that has been praised for powerful GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card, HDD and SSD combo, powerful Intel Core i7 CPU, IPS panel with G-SYNC and for its light weight design. However, the battery life is rather average and you can expect a maximum of 5 hours off of a single charge and less than two while gaming. You also get a small keyboard which will make gaming a bit awkward. But if you want a good desktop replacement that will be able to handle any modern game, then the ASUS ROG GL502VS-DB71 is well worth considering, especially with its 10-series GTX graphics.
