Battery Life: 3.5/10
Of the three laptops being compared, the G551V has the worst battery life at 2 hours and 8 minutes. The G501VW somehow managed four and a half hours with the same configuration, and the Dell barely managed to squeeze an extra 20 minutes over the G551V.
This is a large, powerful, gaming laptop however and expecting whole-day battery life is asking for too much. I just wish it actually managed to hit the 4-hour mark under moderate use. With light-usage—Chrome and Office—I managed around four hours of continuous use, which was bearable.
Verdict and Price in India
We’ve tested three laptops with an i7 6700K, 16GB RAM, Nvidia 960M and 4K display combo. Of the three, one is a slim, mostly-aluminium device, one is large, bulky but with an excellent cooling system and the third is the G551V.
All things considered, I think the Asus G551V is the better deal here. If you really are looking for a laptop in the Rs 1,00,000 range, look no further than the Asus ROG G551VW. Just ensure that you’ve uninstalled all Asus bloat before using it though.
