Asus Rog GL Series

asus rog

Fast memory? Good graphic card? Quality design? Yes, the Asus ROG GL has it all. The ROG is a top-notch gaming laptop for less than 1000, and this is LaptopBlogger’s overview of it.

The design

The design is clean and sophisticated, but when you sit down with the Asus ROG GL, you know you have a true gaming laptop in front of you. The keyboard is well laid out and has a red backlight. It is ideal for gaming, but it has one big weakness. Fingerprints. The glossy design makes fingerprints show up and even if you easily can use the cloth to remove them it is a small annoyance.

Screen and battery

The screen is a 1080HD display with accurate color and clear image quality.  The battery is the laptops biggest flaw. With less than 3 hours of game time unplugged it is on the weaker side of the price range. If you can handle playing mostly plugged in and have a budget of around 1000 dollars. then this is one of the to-go laptops of the price range. Why? The powerful hardware.

The hardware

By the end of this page is a table of the hardware. The Asus Rog Gl has a sixth generation i7-6700HQM processor. The processor has an 8000 GPU mark score so for a gamer is more than enough. The Rog also has 2133Mhz RAM and a fast HDD.  The best part is still the graphics card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M. The 960M runs most games with 60+ fps on high settings (see notebookcheck for more info).

15 or 17 inches?

The only different between the 15-inch model GL552VW and the 17-inch Gl752VW is the size. So just pick the size that fits you. No matter what size you choose, the price is nearly the same.


The Asus Rog is a gaming laptop with the hardware and design you need for a good gaming experience. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M is great graphics card when you are on a budget but still want to play your favorite games on high-ultra settings. If you buy the Asus Rog Gl, you won’t be disappointed as long as you remember to plug it in after 3 hours of quality gaming.
