Bottom Line

The ASUS ROG GL551JW-DS71 features powerful hardware and performance with an admittedly small SSD that combined with an attractive design makes a great option for almost any gamer.

The ASUS ROG GL551JW-DS71 is a bestselling 2015 15.6-inch laptop that received positive reviews for its sleek design, comfortable back lit keyboard, fast speeds due to its Intel Core i7-4720HQ processor running at 2.6 GHz and 16 GB of DDR3 RAM, and its inclusion of both a 128 GB SSD as well as a 1 TB hard drive perfect for storing all your files and games. In addition, the inclusion of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M makes games play smoothly for optimal gaming performance. It did however receive some criticism for the relatively small SSD limiting what software you could install, and the back light of the keyboard goes dark during boot times. However, the ASUS DS71 offers top of the line hardware for a relatively low price in the gaming market making it one of the most affordable and effective gaming machines around.
