I owned the RTX 3070 version of this for a while before I returned it. It's thin and light, which is good, but as a tradeoff ASUS was only feeding the GPU 85W. I replaced it with a MSI laptop with the same GPU but with 125W power delivery and performance increased by 30-40%. Just be aware that just because the GPU says it's an RTX 3060, you may not get the performance other similarly specced laptops will get.

It's more then that, it has no mux switch which the MSI has which further reduced the absolutely awful performance of the 11370H.

The reason why this laptop is so horrific is the low wattage GPU and the CPU is so bad, for whatever reason, it bottlenecks like half the games so it muders performance. It's so bad in fact, that it loses to last gen 2060 laptops like the legion 5 in many games..
