3.0Powerful Laptop with a subpar display
As far as the CPU and GPU, this is a great laptop. Best Buy screwed up and showed that this had a 144 Hz display on their listing, which would be great and make this an exceptional value. I was very disappointed to find that this was false information and it indeed has a standard 60 Hz display. I am planning on returning it. Overall, it's a decent value, but all that power is pretty useless with a 60 Hz display on a gaming laptop. Unless FPS don't matter to you, you would be better off spending less money on a different setup.

"Ok" laptop, Best Buy's misinformation not so good
Originally Best Buy's listing of this laptop stated that it was 144Hz, I got this laptop, and discovered it was the 60Hz panel. Best Buy has corrected the listing, but this correction happened after I took delivery of the laptop.. Another disappointment on Best Buy's part was that they failed to disclose that this laptop has the smaller 48Wh battery compared to the 90Wh on the other ASUS A15 models. At best with the 48Wh battery you are lucky to get 1 hour of gaming with the power hungry RTX 2060. I've noticed this laptop also has a wonky touchpad that sometimes doesn't register input, and the ASUS software on this laptop is a pain on top of that, with ASUS's "Armoury Crate" application failing to recognize the laptop resulting in me being unable to change the RGB lighting on the laptop's keyboard. The speakers on this laptop are bellow average, with very little bass, and don't get that loud as well. The 60Hz panel equipped on this laptop also fails to get bright at all. One other caveat I have noticed is the 512GB SSD ASUS uses is a slower Kingston SSD in which the model name I have found for it is "OM8PCP3512F-AB", I have not been able to find that much information on the drive, but I did run a CrystalDiskMark on it and got a read speed of 660.80 MB/s, and a write speed of 979.85 MB/s. I do have to say though the Ryzen 7 4800H is a beast, with performance from what I've seen nearing a i9 9980HK, and the RTX 2060 is more then enough power for a 1080P 60HZ panel.

So far so good
Received the product and I have been pleasantly surprised. Performance is up to the mark but the fans ramp up quite a lot making it way louder than it should be.
