Asus Cut Corners

Strengths:

Decent build quality and specs - Runs most games quite well at 1080p ROG branding - you pay more for RGB USB C - Can charge and output display signal unlike last gen Silent - Can run fans at 0 RPM for light loads

Weaknesses:

Unshielded audio - The 3.5mm jack has all sorts of static and other bg noises. The difference between using a quality USB amp and the built in 3.5mm jack was like night and day Horrible colours - This screen has to be one of the worst I've seen on gaming laptops so far. Colour accuracy is very bad, I regret getting this one before looking into it more first. Missing USB port?? - There was an blank daughterboard in the right side with a plastic cutout the size of a USB port but nothing wired there. The previous generation had a USB port and card reader on the right side so why take it out on this gen? Could use more USB C ports - You will need a dock or USB C hub if you want to charge via USB C and use other USB C devices at the same time.

Additional Comments:

More Weaknesses since I ran out of space No Webcam or SD card reader or mini DP - Really a downgrade from the last gen models. Driver or Hardware issues - Waking the laptop from sleep will cause several flickers or crash the graphics driver when only using an external monitor. No mux switch - Using the Nvidia GPU on the built in screen will result in lower performance than an external screen. No dedicated left/right click - Touchpad wants to register zoom in/out when I want to move and click. Limited storage options - Only 1 free m.2 slot so you can add at most 1 SSD. No more SATA /m.2 even though laptop has space. AMD Processor - Limited options with power management to reduce heat Summary: I would skip this version and go with something better. Asus put all the money in the CPU/GPU and skimped on most other things.
