ASUS TUF Gaming FX505DD 15.6" FHD 120Hz

I'll give the most honest answer you're looking in this laptop. I bought this laptop a while back and honestly it's damn good. Starting with CPU, amd does a good job of handling day to day gaming and work stations all along. The thing is the GPU. Gtx 1050 3gb let you game in 1080p resolution, but fps are not amazing. You have to lower the settings to get the 60fps gaming. Fan noise is Loud in turbo mode but less noise then other gaming laptops . Silent and balanced mode gets fan speed between 2400rpm to 3800 rpm where there is no noise , so that's good. Battery is normal, 3-4 hrs in normal use and 1and half hours while gaming. RGB lighting is a steal. It's customizable and looks pretty dope. Hard drive is HDD, not hybrid and is quite slow so I urge you guys to buy m2 SSD. It has a single channel 8GB 2666mhz and if you want to upgrade, please note that the ram should be exact 2666 MHz ram to work as a duel channel memery. All aside, Great laptop for the price segment. You should really go for it.

Firstly I'm not a windows user and the amount of bloat that is on this machine is too much, but hey just installed Arch Linux on it and got the correct wifi driver from the AUR and it's flawless. Build quality isn't that bad and stuff works! Wifi isn't dual band (I think, didn't check properly yet). As I'm not primarily gaming on it I don't care as long as it's runs osu!, visual novels, rhythm games and other single player games, which it does pretty well even under WINE, I will be creating a windows VM for bluestacks so I might update the review later on.

HP Pavilion 15-dk0047TX 2019 15.6-inch Gaming Laptop

Okay I have been using it for almost two months now. General Performance wise I have no complaints. Boots up in seconds and is super fast for day to day tasks like web browsing, Video streaming, emails etc. I use it for music production with FL Studio and various third party plugins and no matter how heavy the project is, there are absolutely no complaints. Now for the gaming part, 90% of the games I played in it there were no issues in High/Ultra settings and 1080p (The latest CODs, Mass Effect Andromeda, Battlefield 1 etc). PUBG will stutter at highest settings so I recommend 720p with medium settings for a lag free performance. I would recommend a cooling pad while using the laptop for gaming as it gets pretty hot and thermal throttling could be an issue here if you are not using it on adequate surfaces (for example if you like playing on your bed). I use an external monitor and gaming set while at home so it’s easy to just dock it to a cooling pad. If you are playing directly on the laptop using the laptop keyboard, Play around with pad adjustments until you find a position that is ergonomically suitable for you. Battery life is average at best during gaming. I could play just about 2 full rounds of CODBO4 in the highest settings at 1080p and 3.5 rounds of PUBG in Medium settings at 720p before the low battery mode kicked in at 20%. Though to be honest I never use my laptops on battery while heavy usage and always carry my adapter around wherever I go. On the other hand, battery backup was pretty decent while streaming videos or other day to day tasks. You can easily watch 2 full movies at 80% brightness and still have some juice left before it reaches 20%. All in all, this is a good machine at a really good price, especially for Intermediate gamers like me. If you are a Pro gamer, then HP Omen series are what you should be looking at instead of this.
