Screen and Sound

The Full HD matte screen has the right resolution for the GTX 1060, but its pixels are stretched across a 17.3in panel, which means density levels of 127ppi isn’t great. It’s absolutely fine for gaming and movies, but screens with more pixels will render games, photographs, text and icons with more sharpness and detail.

The inclusion of 60Hz G-Sync is welcome – it means gaming will be butter-smooth on this screen. It’s smart to be paired with the GTX 1060, too, as it means that games can run at 60fps on this screen, as that’s where G-Sync will perform at its best on this panel.

air-coolers-19The middling specification is matched by average benchmark results. The contrast level of 900:1 is reasonable, with a decent black level of 0.35cd/m2 – both figures are good for a good range of colours and deep shades at the darker end of the spectrum.

The colour temperature of 7,610K is too cool and leaves colour a tad pallid, and the average Delta E of 3.43 is just that – average. Using Vivid mode improved the Delta E to 0.91, but the cool colour temperature remained, and the screen’s sRGB coverage level of 86.6% is middling.

The 1080p resolution, G-Sync and reasonable benchmarks mean this panel is fine for gaming, movies and general computing, but pricier portables do offer more quality – a machine like the XMG is a better option if resolution or quality is a key consideration in your next laptop.

The two speakers churn out decent high-end noises and reasonable treble, but both of those areas are undermined by a dearth of bass. That’s no surprise considering there’s no subwoofer in this machine.

The Asus AudioWizard app provides different modes for different scenarios, but they’re a mixed bag: we like the Action option as it provides better balance, but many other options provide too much flat bass or are just too quiet.

air-coolers-18Alternative Specs

We’ve reviewed the GL702VM-GC003T, and only one alternative specification is available if you’re not keen on this model’s components. The GL702VM-GC010T is £150 more expensive than our sample, and that money means you get a Core i7 processor and 16GB of memory – but that machine still has a 1080p screen and GTX 1060 GPU.


This machine is inevitably built with compromise in mind, but the Asus gets it right in key departments. The GTX 1060 is an excellent mid-range GPU, the screen has the ideal resolution and G-Sync alongside decent quality, and the processor is capable.

None of the compromises are deal-breakers: the rest of the components are reasonable, the speakers are OK, and the keyboard and trackpad are both serviceable. It looks great throughout.

This machine doesn’t have the power or quality of pricier rivals, and that’s fine – it does more than enough to justify a much lower price. This is a winner if you don’t want to spend around £2,000 on a gaming notebook.
