    Hi Dave, what would you recommend? Asus GL552W DH74 Model or the Dell Inspiron 7559 4K Model ? Comparing the specs what would be a better option? I'm a photo & video editor and true colors are a priority.

    Am thinking about buying this laptop for college but I saw this comment on a video about it overheating and it died in 5 mouths. Does anyone know if this is true?

  11. Hetznaz

    I bought this laptop last christmas, and tbh, I love it, its great to run everything that I play (siege medium, 60fps, PUBG 45-50 fps on low and medium, arma 60 fps on low 2km render distance, and 45 with 4km render distance, all on low-medium) so if you're wanting a gaming laptop that can run any game you throw at it, and some on high, but thats portable, and won't weight down your backpack, then this is a good laptop to consider, it has gone to mexico for 6 months and back, all across the US and most of Canada, and still works the same as the day I bought it 100% would recommend

    hi Mr. Dave thanks for this video one of the reasons why I have this GL552VX now. I had the plastic top version. There is something though which concerns me, is it alright to plug the power source even the battery is full? I play games a lot and I wanted to know if this will damage the battery without plugging out the power. Hope you can answer me, thanks!:)

  14. CLYRIC

  15. Twift

    What Settings Did You put on For Rainbow Six Siege ?

  16. Steeephen

    Does anybody experience sudden shutdown with this laptop when not plugged in? I do experience it for I have the GL752 one. The battery level is not that even close to shutting down. As well as when plugged in, my laptop does not reach up to 100%. Like only around 70-80%. Does anybody knows the solution for this?

  17. savagepatchkidz

  23. Rinne

    im using that laptop now lmao still fast for 2018, but I really really hate the trackpad, it gets oily easily

  24. sayed saleh

    Hello bro can i upgrade this laptop… Can i put ssd and 16gb ram??

  25. Antonio Margallo

    Apart from being a gaming laptop it had really good specs for its price and that's why I bought one. Till this day it delivers pretty well, I'm thinking about some RAM upgrade though, just to show I appreciate all the work he's done over the years. Battery life wasn't great, but it lasted me throughout 3 or 4 hours University classes easily, just had to bring down the brightness a bit. The Asus software is something I found somewhat underrated. It has a bios like menu that works even without the disk. It was enough to stick a pen into it with Linux and salvage everything important from the damaged disk. I had no need to pay 60 euros for that kind of technical service support, I already had a new freaking disk to buy.

    Was working fine for me for a bit over 2 years. All of the suddem the computer just shut down and stsrted overheating. Any tips to fix this?

  27. VEDA

    Is it still worth buying in 2019?

  28. Tenzin Tsethar

    Hj Dave I am a fan of your reviews tbey are so well presented. I would love your suggestion for a.laptop under 1000dollars used for mainly music production, please help

  29. suhans bansal

    I have been using for the past 3 years (I have 4GB GTX960M variant) initially the laptop was good but now the thermals are hitting around 105C. The laptop is good for gaming but lags a lot on video processing part. Go above Filmora, one can see the lags in processing. Still, it is a good laptop, as even touching 105C it can sustain the frame rates pretty well.

  30. DantheJack

    It's been more than 2 years since I bought my GL552 and GOSH what a disapointment ! Even with only Windows launched, no games, nothing, the temperature inside is freaking HOT. Plus it barely make modern games run at 50fps, even with medium or low graphics. The dvd drive is cool, and the keayboard is great in my personal opinion, but everything else make me regret to have choosen this one instead of any other 2015 laptop.

  31. Oscar

    Should I buy this in 2020?

  32. shrey som

    I have been using this laptop from more than 4 years and i can still play sekiro with good graphics.I love my laptop but from yesterday it's not getting turned on. I thought of upgrading m.2 and one moe 8 gb ram in it 🙁

  33. Seba Di Giuseppe

    Wonderful laptop. I just got a Macbook Pro 13 2020 and this Asus KICKS IT BUTT.
    I'm selling the Mac and staying with this Asus until I find a better one with 4k display
