Fully Connected

Connect compatible storage drives to the USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port to transfer data at up to 10 Gb/s. This port also supports supports power delivery to keep your laptop charged, and you can connect an external display to it along with the HDMI 2.0b port for a larger viewing space and enhanced multitasking.

Windows 10 Home

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.

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.

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.

ASUS G15 15.6" Reviews

Exactly as wanted

Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-17

My girlfriend needed a new laptop and after some research and help from friends, we decided on this one. It came exactly as advertised, it handles all of the gaming she wants as well as the editing software she uses. Although, I admit she hasn't used the editing software much since she got this. The laptop boots up fast, and is pretty quiet.

I needed a new computer for work as my 5 year old Samsung Chromebook Pro was on its last leg. Seeing as I've picked up gaming as a hobby over the last couple years, I did a little research and decided to purchase this beautiful machine for work and a little casual gaming on the side. So far its been absolute delight and has absolutely blown my mind. I'll keep it short and sweet. Pros: -Screen is beautiful. -Fans aren't too loud. I can play without headphones just fine, even in Turbo. -Battery life is better than I expected. -Keyboard is great. Keys aren't too loud and don't feel mushy. -Tons of ports which are mostly found on the rear of the laptop. -Stays cool. -Dedicated media buttons. Cons: -No webcam. I didn't realize until after opening it. -RGB software is a little confusing for first timers. -I got the AMD version, so no Thunderbolt that I know of. -Speakers are located on the bottom of the laptop. Not a huge deal, but they sound a little muffled at times. -Mouse is very large. My right palm is constantly clicking and moving the mouse while I'm typing emails/word docs. Overall this is a very solid machine. As my first gaming laptop I am very impressed! Great job Asus!
