The Display looks good, even when it’s turned off. The display has minimal bezels which makes it looks good and compact. The brightness levels are great, it can go very dim for if using it at night, and it can go bright while using in day or sunlight. The best part, it has a matte coating on it which is a definite need. Asus always offers the best display and this is another example of the same. Gaming, editing everything can be done perfectly and portably with this machine.
The Asus Strix G531GT speakers are very good. They’re one of the best speakers you are going to hear on a gaming laptop. The speakers get pretty loud, audio remains clear even on max volumes so no worries. Even after that, every gamer is going to use a gaming headset for the best experience.
The best part of speakers is they are front-firing speakers. The speakers are hidden just below the display.

The ROG Strix comes with a 9th-gen Intel Core i7 processor clocked at 2.6 GHz with Turbo Boost Upto 4.5 GHz. That beast is paired with 16GB of DDR4 RAM which can be changed as per the requirements. Best part the NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1650 for Desktop Level Performance taken from Nvidia’s latest lineup, made this device a beast. We just get amazing performance out of it. Saying anything else will insult this beast.
You can play any game you want to play. You can run any emulator you want to run. Any code any rendering stuff. Everything will work like a butter slippery performance. Every game can be played in the highest setting without any lag and frame drop. Rest what else any gamer needs.

Gaming laptops are never good at the battery at all. This is because of their top-notch hardware and performance. Consumers also compromise with hardware and battery as they are getting top-notch performance and portability factor. The Asus Strix G531GT comes with a 3 cell battery with 150 W AC Adapter.
While using the battery on 50% brightness and doing normal daily work like word, photoshop, Chrome, and all the battery are going to last you for about 2 hours 35 minutes. If you are on power-saving mode then it depends on what all applications you are using. You definitely need a charger while traveling with this beast else you won’t be able to survive with your work and games. And that RGB Lighting drink your battery, so you make sure you turn it off while traveling around.
The Asus Strix G531GT is a good laptop which has almost all specs for any gamers. Here I am not considering the camera for web chat and battery as we cannot get a great battery with a beast performance that is quite obvious. This machine has a great design, premium build and filled with RGB lights all over. Asus has added top-notch portability with the best performance.
My thoughts, If you want a Cool Gaming Experience in a Laptop with Awesome RGB Lighting than this laptop is for you but if you want to use this laptop for your business or job or for traveling, I won’t recommend it.
