  • Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage Still Rocks

    With about a year of use and more than 3000 hours usage this all AMD Linux Gaming Laptop has been a great choice. I upgraded the memory to 64 Gb RAM and storage to 1.5 TB NVME storage. The huge power brick usually lays against my leg as I work and the temperature is never uncomfortable. I retained the original NVME drive so I can dual boot to Windows. While the case is plastic it feels sturdy. I have dropped this from about 3 feet into a wood floor with no I'll effects, but would not advise you try this your self. The screen despite some reports is quite usable outdoors , at least in shade. The track pad is smooth and durable. The one thing I miss is the separate mouse buttons. I am running ubuntu 22.04 which has been solid.

    The one flakey hardware support issue is the Bluetooth which seems to detect some devices but not my headphones. My older laptop is also running 22.04 and that connects fine so I attribute this to the driver.

    So there you have it, thanks to phoronixs indepth review I was able to pick up this laptop install Linux and I have been very happy with it since.
