So I bought the G701VI ; with a 6700HQ processor,
16 gigs of ram and 1 Nvme disk of 512gb
I have to say it's a great machine, very well built, slim (if you don't count the power adapter)
for now, it's working great, I have tried many games on it and really, nothing seems to bring it to it's knees,
I mean every game I tested runs in ultra at more (or almost) than 100 fps
The major drawbacks of this machine in my opinion is the lack of disk space (a hard disk drive should have been inserted in it - even Asus does it on some model so why not on this? ) yes they will say you can go up to 2Tb with a ssd Raid but, it would cost half the price of the machine of not more.
The second problem lies in its conception, sure it's thin, that makes it classy but, then the temps are not great when playing, I have had a lot of Asus G's (G73, G75, G750, G751, G752) and i liked them because even in game they run cool, except for this one, 93°c degrees for the CPU in game, 87°c degrees for the GTX 1080; that's hot ! My previous Rig was the G752VY, even after 3hours of gaming, the beast temps were 65°c for the processor and barely 70 for the GTX980m; In short, maybe it should have been bulkier/larger for better heat dissipation.
So that's it, it's a great gaming rig, I do like it, fast as possible, nice design even if it means hotter (for the record I use a notebook cooler which helps a lot)
but very expensive.
Do not hesitate to ask me things about it, I will be glad to help you know more about it
Have a good day
