I warn you before you read further. This thing is expensive. Would you be willing to pay Rs. 531,250 for a laptop? ASUS ROG G703GI is not made for people with weak hearts. So, with the price issue aside. What are you getting for that much money? Performance, and lots of performance. This thing is more like a portable desktop than a laptop.
Inside, this beast has the latest 8th gen Intel core i9-8950HK processor, 32GB RAM, 2TB Firecuda SSHD Drive, 256GB NVMe SSD, and an 8GB of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card. What do these numbers mean for you? Well, it means around 100 FPS in titles like Middle Earth Shadow of War in Ultimate mode. That’s a desktop grade performance.

That means if you carry this machine around, you have to carry two brick-size power bricks with you.

The major downfall of this laptop is the battery life. It is just terrible. You kind of expect it with a machine this big and this powerful. Continuous 1080p video playback will give you around 1hrs and 45 min of juice. So, don’t buy this machine if you want something to use between charges. Another shortcoming may be the noise, but, again, that is expected with a laptop this big.
So, are you getting what you are paying for with this laptop? In terms of sheer performance, yeah. But do you need it? It’s for you to decide.
