Pros

  • Intel Skylake processor
  • G-SYNC display panel
  • HDD and SSD combo
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070
  • Thin and light

Cons

  • Poor battery life
  • Smaller keyboard
  • Prone to heating up

Bottom Line

The ASUS ROG GL502VS-DB71 is a thin and light gaming laptop that boasts the latest NVIDIA GTX 1070 graphics card. But the thinner design does mean that it is more prone to heating up than some of the thicker ROG laptops.


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.
