The color and the contrast performance are good enough to attract the users but not impressive design as needed to dominate the market.
The Virtual Machine is having 85% of the Standard RGB, but at this price, you may get 100%. At 62.5 and 71.5%, the RGB and DCI P3 standard coverage is good and has been providing sRGB coverage.
But the small problem is about contrast. Because at 569, it is just good but at higher brightness the screen displays a slight blue color, thus giving the blueish mix to the graphics. However, it is still a perfect screen for the games.

Keyboard and Keyboard:
These laptops are capable of providing pure performance. The company has also paid attention to keyboard and trackpad.
In the previous G-series laptops, the keyboard keys are much wider than the normal one. This style makes typing more easy and comfortable.
Above the standard key set, a full numeric pad along with custom buttons are settled down. This boot-up the five customizable macro buttons accompanied by XSplit Gamemaster video streaming software.

The NUM pad is also containing a feature named as ROG button which allows you to launch the gaming center app and let you know about the CPU and GPU working and gives them the information about how hot they are at the time.
The keyboard is capable of registering up almost 30 keypresses at once. This feature can be tested by a smash on the keyboard but just keep it in mind that no keypress should be missed.
The machine’s mouse buttons also provide the feel of the keyboard and they have been settled down rather than being developed into the pad.
The oversized pads have been reduced to the normal size but with the lighter feel and having miniaturized space bars.
This allows users to tap it easier and even faster. This gives a bit of relief to the users from the awkward feeling of mouse layouts.
Actually, the pad is too large but it is frustrating that such high-end laptops utilize the plastic surface rather than textured glass.
This does not allow users to slide their fingers in pad smoothly, as most of the gamers use the mouse so they did not notice this difference.

These laptops are perfect and remain silent even when users play the game continuously for 30-40 mins.

The grille of the laptops is the main function of its cooling system. This pushes the hot air out of the laptop.
The drawback of these laptops is that its battery life is not going to be that much strong as it should be. However, the company did not design the 14nm CPU and all other core components for the good battery life.
