Works perfectly for my schoolwork and online meetings! Gaming on this laptop is no problem as long as you don’t expect to play demanding games on high settings. Love the quality asus put into this laptop. The type C charging is fantastic if you are on the go can’t wait to try that out. I love having the ports on the backside of the laptop I find the cords for charging, ethernet etc are not in my way and almost feel hidden. There is only a 3050 in there, if you want to game more demanding games you may want a better gpu which asus offers lots of options there at a higher price point.

The Asus boot screen makes a loud whoosh and made me jump, my 3yr old said "Wow" with all the LED lights orbing. Looks great, RGB lighting is sweet, keyboard is solid, screen hinges feel strong. Durable finish, no fingerprints show. 144hz screen is so smooth in shooters. 2nd M.2 slot to easily upgrade NVMe storage is a nice bonus. I happened to have a 970 Evo Plus laying around, so yay. Armoury Crate app is awesome, allows you to change Aura Sync and system power profiles such as turbo, performance or silent. Fan ramps up loud on Turbo mode for OC'ing but not noticable when wearing headphones. Hot keys allow to change these without opening app. MyAsus software keeps laptop up to date with compatible drivers, firmware, etc. that are known to work with this model. Easy to register laptop with Asus, and their Elite program for ROG points. Includes 1 month of McAfee Livesafe and Xbox Game Pass.
Screen shows minor backlight bleeding on two corners, nothing major but could be a one off issue. Which is only noticable on a black background. I wish the screen color depth was richer, I'm so used to high end TVs for console gaming that any PC screen is dull in comparison.
All in all I was impressed with this gadget. This is the first gaming laptop I've purchased as I normally build my own gaming desktops but with GPU shortages and price gouging I felt a laptop was the way to for now. RGB looks very nice in a dimly lit room when gaming. Very snappy performance. Being able to charge on the go with a USB battery pack through the type C connection is going to come in handy. I'd say this is worth the price tag and Asus Accidental Damage Protection warranty is reassuring.
