Benefits

The obvious number one benefit that the Asus ROG GL502VM-BB71-CB has to offer is its superior performance. This model not only comes packed with a top end Intel Core i7 processor but is also backed by double the amount of memory you typically find in a standard laptop model with 16 GB. You can rest assured if purchasing this laptop model that it will easily be able to handle the latest game or resource hogging application without slowing down.

It is well known now that an SSD can provide superior performance over a standard SATA hard drive but they do typically have much less storage capacity. Asus has tried to address both of these issues by going with a hybrid setup of a large 1 TB SATA drive plus a high performing 128 GB SSD drive so that users get the best of both worlds.

Asus has done a nice job of not forgetting the little things when designing this laptop starting with the fact all 3 USB ports are running on the newer and faster 3.0 technology and they have also included a Type-C port. Bluetooth 4.1 is available along with a backlit keyboard which is great when working in poorly lit locations.

Downsides

Unfortunately consumers who are on a budget are going to get some sticker shock when first seeing the price tag of the Asus ROG GL502VM-BB71-CB. This laptop is going to cost you due to all the impressive hardware they have packed into the design.

With many high end gaming machines sporting large 17.3 inch screens so that you have the biggest and best display possible available to you instead Asus has went with the smaller 15.6 inch. If having a big display to play your latest games is a big factor this might be some concern.

Verdict

While pricey the Asus ROG GL502VM-BB71-CB provides a nice option for those looking for a slightly smaller but still as powerful gaming machine. If the high end price still fits into your budget we so no reason not to take a serious look at this as your next laptop buy.
