ASUS Republic of Gamers STRIX GL502 15.6" Gaming Laptop - Black

ASUS Republic of Gamers GL502

 

Its a nice looking laptop with good weight and size for gaming.

I'm very disappointed with its performance. Playing online games such a Rainbow Six at medium settings, even with a cooler mat the laptop runs extremely hot, motherboard around 90C. It makes me scared to play games on the thing in case I wreck it after...
