ASUS ROG Strix GL503VD 15.6″ Gaming Notebook

Rating: 8.0.

The Asus ROG Strix GL503VD is an attractive laptop with its brushed metal lid, RGB keyboard and compact design. The GL503VD- FY108T model we reviewed offers modest specifications with a Quad core i5, GTX 1050 and 8GB RAM. However this makes it a respectable £799.99 which isn’t bad for a good looking gaming laptop. Could this laptop be the perfect balance of price and performance?
