when connecting to a 4k monitor is the HDMI still 30hz on this?
Mine also came with a headset
hi dave I need little help from you I am starting my career as programmer I ask u to suggest me a laptop coz most of the laptops you review is not available here india am totally confused on choosing a laptop for programing purpose. Thanks in advance
Do you think that they will release a 10 series versions of this?
this with the 1060 is excellent
does it have a logo light?
is it true that you can't change the second hard drive? asus just told me so. that the special laptop configuration and specs doesn't allow this. i doubt it really…
The G501 also uses a fake-4K RG/BW Pentile screen to cheat the ability to advertise the 4K(3840×2160) resolution, without actually providing the full detail of the resolution. Just like the UX501. Buy the Lenovo Y700 4K or Dell XPS 15 4K instead.
What is a game at 4:51? Thanks!
i like ur review. best of all the vids out there.
i have this notebook. Super! )
I hate the red accents and ugly colors
can you change the keyboard backlit color?
response time pleas?
hey bro, I want help to choose between the Asus gl552vw and g501vw fhd model, they got same specs and pricing, 501 didn't got the DVD drive but I got an external drive, please help thank you
how long is the battery life??
Ew, no ethernet port.
How is video rendering speed? I couldn't understand. I'm editing 4k videos for youtube with CyberLink Video Editor. Should i buy this computer for 4k display and for the Gtx 960m or should i buy Full HD with 980m pc? I just want to edit 4k videos confortably. I'm waiting for your answer thanks.
I found a deal for this laptop, it's 1150€ for i7, 16GB RAM, 128GB SSD (SATAIII) + 1TB HDD (5400RPM), 1080p matte screen, GTX 960M 4GB VRAM. Is it a good deal, or should I wait for newer laptops with GTX 1050 inside?
I'm a grafical design student and don't game. I need a portable & powerful laptop for the next 3-5 years.
Thanks in advance.
Is it m.2 PCIE NVme storage?
Looking for a laptop that I may EVENTUALLY use to learn to edit vids and don't want to pay too much. I used to have an ASUS that had a maroon, plaid shell that was stolen by the police. I love ASUS and appreciate your videos. I'm still looking, I guess. I wish I remember what the old one had. It held its own but it definitely wasn't SSD.
Do a video on Asus fx502
spring eject mechanism for the SD card 😂
Hey guys, I want to buy this laptop, but I heard alot of bad review about the screen keep flickering. I want to ask all onwers out there after updated the BIOS, does it still happen? if so, are there any other way to prevent it? thanks
and the model that i want to buy is asus g501jw-ds71
Let's say I found this type of computer for about 7000$.. Worth it?
Please make a video on latest generation of HP Envy x360. And also a video of best notebooks under $800 with dedicated graphics. Thanks
Would this be a replacement for the Ux501 as an editing laptop
I had been quite conflicted about laptops (between choices that is) around the same time last year. I wanted a work /play rig capable of both the big and small.
I bought the G501 after watching this video. You cleared up the clutter in my head one laptop component at a time.
I think your videos are great tech videos. They are simple, succinct and super.
Quite elegant, quite comprehensive. Keep up the good work man. 🙂
how is gtx 820 1gb in laptop?
is it really that much of a dust and fingerprint magnet
Actually just purchased this laptop for $600 today. I now it's an older model, but I couldn't walk away from that deal.
he's the best tech geek ever
I want this laptop but with a newer card inside o_o It looks damn good o_o
Thanks for the video!i had g501jw but after having issue with it now asus service want to replace with new one to me!which one should I pick? The choice is between gl573 vs ux501 or again g501?i run for photo and video editing all 16BG.thanks in advance!
The graphic you made for this looks like a goofy face, just saying.
Dont buy this laptop. used it for 3 years now.
GB storage sucks
Brightness screen sucks
Replacement of parts in the machine nearly impossible
Just asking, since this is 2018. Is this device compatible with external gpu?
How many FPS asus G501 JW
This is actually my laptop. I've used it for three years, and the battery doesnt hold electricity anymore. Whatever Dave says in this video is correct. He is a good reviewer.
Can run gta v in ultra settings?
hey Dave, I know this is an older video and you might not see this comment but I just acquired on of these laptops from my brother in law, and for some reason the display will not show in 4k resolution. ive seen it in 4k in person when he go this thing 2 years ago, but now it only displays 1080p, even on youtube.
But there is not Enthernet port 🙁

Я за асус❤❤💋💋👄👄
Thumbs up and subscribed.
Very quality review and gave me just what I was looking for, broke down the specs, gave your honest opinion and moved on. Very helpful. Thank you Mr. Lee!
hi Dave. Tks for the video, esp info on the BIOS 209. I have downloaded the BIOS. How do I go about updating the BIOS? I tried to run it but it said no application. Appreciate if you can help. Tks
In some cases screen flickering may happen because LCD cable wears out (Watch this YT video: HOW TO FIX ASUS screen flickering)
Both ROG and Dave have come so far
