Isn't that just retail?

This would have been a pretty hot item 3 months ago but there's more options now.

It is retail - but it has been difficult to get stock - looks like a good value for an entry level gaming laptop. I'm sure the 1650 card will keep a 10 year old happy for a while.

This is a buy, folks.

While you meditate, stock is disappearing quickly.

Buy, try, keep or return. Simple move.

At this juncture in July, I would buy something like this just to have it to compare against BTS deals and keep or return accordingly.

Speaking as someone heavily interested in that monster CPU.

I don't strictly because of the form factor.

How good/bad is a 200 nit screen on this 15"screen?

The thermals are not very good but since it's a 15" laptop, it still does relative ok. To get the best thermal performance, some modifications to the laptop is required.

This laptop is a "gaming" laptop in aesthetics alone.
The 1650 is pretty similar to a 1060 Max-Q.
For 900$ its not bad.

Sure an RTX2060 would be better but it would also be 400-500$ more expensive.

It's funny how everybody wants an inexpensive thin and light gaming notebook but complain when they overheat because the hot air has nowhere to go.

Really dim. If you’re docking it , no biggie.
Even 250 is too dim for my tastes.

If you watch the video, you'll see ASUS purposely crippled the thermals on the TUF A15 by blocking the vents and not letting the hot air escape. You gotta open up the vents to lower the temps.
