We didn't review this exact configuration of the ROG Strix Hero II, but the lower-tiered version comes with the same stylish design and an awesome pair of speakers.
Its 15.6-inch, 1920 x 1080 display is pretty vivid, covering 120% of the sRGB color gamut, and emitting a decent 276 nits of brightness. It also features a smooth 144Hz refresh rate.
To top it all off, the Strix Hero II has an excellent keyboard. The key travel is 1.4 millimeters, and the keys require 63 grams of actuation force.
The Strix Hero II that we tested also had good battery life for a gaming laptop, too, lasting 4 hours and 56 minutes. However, it's hard to say if this configuration will last the same, considering it has a more powerful graphics card.
