DESIGN

Asus ROG Strix G15 and G17 are made up of aluminium with a lot of vends to dissipate out the heat. The laptop comes in two color variants of Original Black, Eclipse Grey. The G17 has got a full-size keyboard whereas in G15 series laptops it is absent. A backlit keyboard is said to follow the optical mechanism which makes the key input fast and smooth. Asus claims that ROG Strix G15 and G17 2021 edition laptops have got about 5% smaller chassis without any compromise with performance.

There is also a lightbar strip running parallel beneath the chassis giving it a perfect gaming look. The entire RGB light ecosystem in the laptop is customizable using the inbuilt Asus Armour Crate app. The aluminium design wrap-around makes the laptop extra durable without adding much weight to it. The palm rest area is also considerably larger with a large trackpad too but we genuinely advise using a mouse instead of TrackPad for gaming. The laptop weighs around 2.7 Kgs which is not fit in the ultra-portable category but yet slim and stylish.
