Nice sleek looking powerful laptop

Strengths of the product

- Light strong body construction - Powerful cpu ( it really does clock just over 4ghz) full load is 65 ~ 71° C - 1050 ti is nice - Display screen 120hz ( actually made my eyes water it looks so good) - Stays fairly cool (would highly recommend a cooling pad) - Price is decent - Has empty slot for nvme m.2 upgrade - Back lit keyboard and options to change to any spectrum color(s) is a bonus. - Battery does have a bit more life

Weaknesses of the product

- The 1Tb hybrid slows this computer down so much its ridiculous - Need to disassemble the whole back panel to add more ram ( not really a huge issue but could be for others) - Never thought id say this but yes the fan noise can be on the loud side under full load. but at least I know they are WORKING! ( The fans look industrial solid )

Additional Comments

Purchased this a couple months ago. I always go with asus and this little laptop just had everything I needed. It runs but it just didn't have that lightning speed you would expect from a new gen cpu. Considering it hardly has any bloatware loading times for apps took a good chunk of time, random loading fails and very choppy performance with some higher required games. So thinking it was the ram added another stick which improved a little. Now knowing it needs an SSD to truly speed it up I could either put a full 2.5in ssd drive or use the nvme slot. Decided to try the nvme slot and installed a Samsung M2 stick. Mind boggling how much a ssd being the primary boot speeds up performance. The GL503GE with installed Ssd now performs above expectations. Blazing fast. Rating this with 4 stars because the extra money put into making this work its FULL potential could have just bought something else but now IL give it a 5. Hope this helps anyone
