Why does the G14 have the 4900H, but the G15 has the 4800H?

8-9 hours browsing, probably more. i use it all day without charging for work.

it does. while in the office i plug it into my dell dock and it charges fine. cell phone chargers are hit or miss.

Monitors and 60w charging I would assume? So just need the adapter to game?

Yep, just need at least a 65w USB-C adapter for USB-C power delivery. The stock adapter is required to game just like you mentioned.

So tempting but I keep thinking I need to wait and see more reviews on the Eluktronics rp-15 that's coming out soon. You'd get a bigger screen more appropriate for gaming, not much more heft, and avoid the max-q version of the 2060...the only thing you'd really be sacrificing is the Ryzen 9 and I can't see that being terribly different from the 4800h for most people.

I have this and it really is the fastest computer I have ever owned. Puts my 6700K desktop to shame. All the good you've heard is true: great battery when just doing work/browsing/video, nice color reproduction and reasonable brightness, decent memory capacity, largish NVMe, RTX graphics, great speakers. Price is not in the XPS/Macbook Pro stratosphere. Near ultrabook weight.

All the bad is true also: Uneven backlighting on silver keyboards means you don't use it unless you're in a reasonably dark room, no webcam (I don't care as much, but got a cheap Windows Hello-enabled one to carry around), can get hot an loudish while gaming.

ASUS hit the middle to upper range in every category. Still, if you are a one-function person, you'll find something to complain about. There are faster gaming rigs, but they're heavier and more power hungry. There are better development rigs with more memory, so the 1 soldered SODIMM is an issue. There are lighter, thinner ultrabooks (like the XPS 13 2020 or Spectre x360), but there's no real gaming and very limited virtualization.

There's so much head-room on the processor power, if you want to cool the laptop off a little and keep it quieter during gaming, there's a registry value that can enable an option to disable turbo boost in different power profiles. Many games don't need the CPU at max that only adds unnecessary heat. So you can disable or change the turbo boost while gaming and the max CPU drops from the 90s to 70s degC.

LMAO 1 soldered SODIMM?
Wow, anyone who buys this is really going to be pissed when they find that out.

The 1920x1080 panel is not OMG! OLED, but the factory color reproduction reminds me of a Dell Ultrasharp. First time you look at it you think - okay, I don't need to calibrate that. Maximum brightness won't blind you at all so super bright environments might be a challenge, but it would for most panels.

In the "let's find something to gripe about" category, real gamers complain about the relatively slow response time despite the 120 Hz refresh. I can see some ghosting if I set up contrasting colors on the desktop, but as I am not a competitive gamer, I don't notice anything in games. This is a upper middle ground on all specs, not the best for any one. If you need 240 Hz and low response times, this is not it. For the other 99% it's an above average display.

Why is this even posted. it's 100 dollars off. NOT SLICK
So saving $100 isn't a deal? Posting it at MSRP is NOT a deal.
