Selling ASUS ROG STRIX GL502VT-DS74 15.6"



  • I figured I'd post it here first before posting it on the typical local channels...

    I bought it from Amazon in August 2016.

    It works great and has no cosmetic wear. I use it 100% of the time "docked" to external monitor, keyboard, etc, except when I was on vacation.

    I took out the crappy 1 TB spinner it came with and put in a 2.5" SSD, so it has the 128 GB m.2 and a 256 GB SSD.
    (1TB spinner available if you want it)

    I only use it and keep it on a laptop cooler, and played nothing any heavier than No Man's Sky for no more than an hour or two at a time, infrequently. Other than that, basic use mostly.

    I want to sell it because the hardware is not very compatible with Linux. So if you don't mind Windows, this is a great Windows gaming laptop.

  • No price details?



  • Used ones from random 3rd parties go for $900.

    That seems high. Do they actually sell them at that price? That's roughly the same as my Asus RoG that was only $1100 new two years ago. Yours is a little nicer for sure, but not loads nicer.

    You can still buy the lesser version of it (3 GB video RAM, no m.2 SSD) for $1500 on Amazon.

    If you try to find a laptop with the same or better specs and features, you'll be paying way more than $900. It still seems like a good deal to me, and it doesn't yet make sense to sell it for less at half the original price. New laptops with the same similar specs are way more.
