Whether you're waiting for your flight, kicking back at a café, or at a LAN tournament, you can game just about anywhere with the 15.6" Republic of Gamers Strix GL502 Notebook from Asus. This notebook measures only one inch thick and weighs roughly five pounds making it easy to carry around in a messenger bag or backpack. Powered by a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad-Core processor and 16GB of 2133 MHz DDR4 RAM, this gaming notebook will allow you to efficiently multitask as well as quickly access frequently used files and programs. When it's crunch time, the CPU's core clock can reach up to 3.5 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost technology.

The 15.6" IPS display has a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution and an anti-glare coating so you'll be able to game comfortably. It's driven by a NVIDIA GeForce GTX980M with 4GB of GDDR5 that allows you to enable additional in-game settings and turn up graphical options for a truly immersive gaming experience. You'll also be able to connect additional displays via its HDMI and mini-DisplayPort. For storage, this system has a 128GB M.2 SSD and a 1TB 7200 rpm hard drive that provides you with ample room for all your game, music, videos, data, and more. An SSD is constructed without any moving parts and can thus endure more and perform faster than a traditional hard drive. Therefore, programs and games installed on this drive will load much quicker. Should you need more room, you can connect additional external storage options via its microSD card reader, three USB 3.0 ports, and USB Type-C port.

If you run out of USB ports or would rather save them for other devices, you can pair additional compatible peripherals via Bluetooth 4.0 technology. Connect to the Internet via 802.11ac Wi-Fi or the Gigabit Ethernet jack for a more stable and reliable wired connection. Other integrated features include a webcam, speakers, microphones, a backlit keyboard, and a 3.5mm microphone and headphone combo jack. The preinstalled operating system in this notebook is Windows 10 Home (64-bit).
NVIDIA GeForce GTX Graphics
Experience games in high definition with NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics. With it, you can enable additional in-game options as well as crank up graphical settings for stunning visuals. It provides efficient, powerful performance for heavy gaming or productive multitasking for live streaming and video editing.
NVIDIA G-SYNC Technology
Equipped with G-Sync hardware, the display's refresh rate will sync and lock with the graphics card's output frame rate. Establishing this sync removes tearing and stuttering which can result from conventional fixed screen refresh rates, especially important for gaming in stereoscopic 3D. An additional benefit of G-Sync is reduced lag so gamers will benefit from the improved command response time as well.
IPS Panel
The ROG Strix GL502 is built with an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel that provides you with vivid colors and wide 178° viewing angles so you can have a comfortable viewing experience even at extreme positions.
Hyper Cool Duo-Copper Cooling
The Hyper Cool Duo-Copper Cooling design uses heat pipes and a dual fan system to cool the CPU and GPU independently so that the notebook won't overheat during long gaming sessions.
Backlit Scissor-Switch Keyboard
The ROG Strix GL502 has red-backlit scissor-switch keys with a 1.6mm travel distance so you can game comfortably even in the dark. The WASD keys are highlighted so you'll always know where your hands need to be.
Noise Filtering Microphones
The array microphones are designed to filter out ambient noise so your teammates can hear you clearly even if you're at a LAN party or some other loud environment.
Icepower Audio
The built-in speakers are positioned so that you can enjoy an immersive audio experience.
ROG Gaming Center
ROG Gaming Center gives you access to all the functions and information you need such as CPU/GPU frequency, temperature, as well as hotkey settings, audio settings, and gameplay recording. In addition, ASUS GameFirst III technology optimizes network traffic for faster, lag-free online gaming.

Windows 10

Start Menu
After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
Cortana
Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
Microsoft Edge
After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
Windows Store
For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
Windows Continuum
Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
Xbox on Windows 10
Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
