Make Future Notebook Feature Suggestions Here!

Hi all,

ASUS ROG is requesting our best suggestions for ROG product improvements. As a moderator I won’t have the ability to implement your suggestions but I will be picking some of the best to highlight for the ROG team so they know what matters to us, the community.

Some guidelines for this thread:
1) Keep it positive and constructive. In most of the forum I try to allow you all to express your thoughts freely (within reason). This thread has the express purpose of generating constructive suggestions so I will be moderating this thread and deleting posts that do not contribute to that goal.
2) Keep it concise and on topic. Some minor discussion regarding a specific suggestion is welcome but if you would like to have a longer conversation I ask you start an additional thread and link it in your post here. You can also request a moderator move your posts if you have need.
3) Try for realistic ideas that appeal broadly to gamers. A small improvement on an existing ROG product is much more likely to get chosen than an entirely new product that only matters to a small number of people.
4) Support your favorites! You don’t have to come up with a suggestion to help. If you see something you like, quote it and say so! More support for an idea improves its chances.

I’ve updated the titles for these feedback threads to reflect that this is primarily for *future* products. Sorry for the lack of clarity. While there is a chance some ideas could be implemented via software updates it’s most likely any suggestions would be rolled into new products.
Also, these threads are not for issue reporting and such posts won’t reach the right people. Please post issues in the ROG Care > Hardware & Software Support section. Or contact ASUS support via phone or email for immediate assistance.

Upgradeable RAM. You know that gamers are going to want to upgrade their laptops, so why not make them upgradeable instead of MacBook-like?

Amd model you can.

Yeah, it sucks that the Intel model doesn't have that option with the 4070, at least the one I got. Plenty of room for it, too.

I would really like to see BIOS drivers for the MicroSD card slot to make it usable in BIOS for booting or BIOS flashing. I have several liveboot Linux distros on microSD cards but I need to use an external card reader to boot from them. Not being able to use the microSD card slot for BIOS operations severely reduces the usability of having an microSD card slot to begin with. I have two Zephyrus laptops (an older G15 and a newer G14 GA402XY). This is something that could be done to add value to both existing and future models. It's worth considering.

I have a GX703HS-XB99 that I've been very happy with since I purchased it (refurbished) in August, 2023... except for what appears to be a recurring problem:  The ASUS power supply/cord requires frequent replacement. I am now shopping for my second replacement in less than a year, and at @$50/each this is not an insignificant outlay .  The issue appears to be at the connection end of the cord, as rotating the connector cycles the battery/plugged-in status onscreen.  As a temporary fix I can loop the cord around the USB plug for my headphones and it keeps it (nominally)_ in place, mostly. Replacement firmly fixes the problem. I'm thinking 2 (ASUS) replacement cords in less than a year belies a deeper issue. I do not consider my handling of the unit to be excessively rough, as it is usually only moved from my coffee table to my lap and back. Looking back through (several) forums I see I'm not the only one to have issues with this cord. Should I start looking for an aftermarket cord that is perhaps more robust?

My suggestion would be to supply a power supply/cord that doesn't need to be replaced every 5 months.

Bring back Kensington lock slots, especially on the high end (Zephyrus) machines.

Hey ASUS teams,
I am pretty happy with my X13 Flow (GV302). I am very unhappy though that the device does not power on in clamshell mode. This has also been criticized for other ROG models.

Why? Is there any sane explanation for this? The cooling slots and power button placements are actually very much in favor of such a setup.
I recon this could (and should) be an easy UEFI option to add. This being done, I'd be completely satisfied with the product and happy to recommend even for professional use cases.

Yeah, that doesn’t make sense. My previous laptop, a MSI Delta 15, had intakes on top of the bottom case and still allowed clamshell mode.
