Cooler than mac book easy and quieter
I use both Mac and PC and this laptop is the first the really works and plays like a desktop
2 minor flaws to mention, the power socket isn't very snug, easy for it to pop out accidentally, and the disk drive eject button is very sensitive and will pop open at the slightest of bumps
As for the screen, wow! I was a bit uncertain at first because the MBP 15' comes with the Retna Display so I was a bit skeptical of the ROG's 17' not living up to the quality
Good shopping and I hope this helped!
And all ASUS products in general
