Bottom Line

The ASUS ROG GL551JE-DS74 boasts powerful hardware with an SSD that is perfect for high end gaming, but the case itself, while beautiful, is prone to smudges and fingerprints.

The ASUS ROG GL551JE-DS74 is a bestselling 2015 15.6-inch gaming laptop that has been praised for its slim design, excellent viewing angles, fast SSD storage, and powerful internal hardware including an Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM. It also features a NVIDIA GTX 960M graphics card which can easily handle most of today’s games at Full HD resolution. The only criticism some users had, though a minor one, is that its body is prone to fingerprints. Overall the GL551JE-DS74 is a great machine for media consumption offers excellent value to gamers who don’t have the budget to spend on more high-end gaming laptops.
