Summary: The asus GL552VW performs well, runs cool and quiet in pretty much every situation, và the IPS screen is a pleasure to lớn look at. On the other hand, the build-quality is only average, & the keyboard & trackpad could use a breath of fresh air. Asus compensates that with some solid prices, that"s why the GL552VW is one of the most popular 15-inch multimedia notebooks available these days.

THE GOOD

great display; solid performance; easy lớn upgrade; runs cool and quiet; the battery is not encased; fair price


THE BAD

chunky and heavy body; very weak screen frame on the plastic covered version - get the metallic unit instead; mushy keyboard and not the best trackpad; rather small battery


If you have a little over $1000 & want lớn buy a full-size all-round laptop, a machine that can handle everyday multitasking, multimedia content and gaming at ease, the hãng asus ROG GL552VW is one of the options to lớn consider.

The GL552VW is one of their latest launches at the time of this article, bundling a matte IPS display, a Skylake quad-core processor, dual-storage options & Nvidia GTX 960M graphics.

The the end of the day, the GL552VW could have been a great buy, if not for the poor build chất lượng and choice in materials.


In conclusion, stay away from the plastic version tested in this post.

The metallic variant on the other hand is much stronger buitl, from the đánh giá and reports I’ve seen online, so that one gets a rating of 4/5 in our review. It’s not the absolute best pick out there, but for the right price, it can be the one lớn get.
