Asus ROG GL552VW is a bit confusing, because this product is like a refinement of two series Asus ROG before, Asus ROG GL552JW and Asus ROG GL551JW. For barebones, Asus ROG GL552VW has similar bare bone design with Asus ROG GL552JW.

As for the specifications, it is an upgrade from Asus ROG GL551JW. There are 3 main points that are upgraded on Asus ROG GL552VW. Let’s see the full specs first of the following.

First is the casing material. Asus ROG GL552VW uses its predecessor GL552JW barebones but with LCD cover design taken from GL551JW. (just change color, finishing and texture decoration).

Secondly, Asus ROG GL552VW has a specification similar to Asus GL551JW but with some updates especially in CPU, RAM and storage options. Equipped with Intel core i7-6700HQ makes the performance of this laptop is very great. As we know that the core i7 processor has the best computing performance in the ranks of Intel processor. For engineering software, this notebook is very suitable.

Now we talk about the GPU. Asus ROG GL552VW is intended to replace Asus ROG GL551JW. A gaming laptop with mainstream GPU (GeForce GTX960M) at the most affordable price. So for engineering college students are very recommended.

It’s just that the update of the hardware offered this time is really very tempting. Plus the price tag does not seem affected by the price of skylake CPU, which rumor says cause price increases on the latest gaming laptops. Asus ROG GL552VW itself is priced from $1200


As we can see, Asus ROG GL552VW uses its predecessor barebones combined. For LCD cover texture and workstation portion taken from GL552JW, while the use of aluminum metal material is taken from GL551JW. For the concept of workstation to bottom cover itself there is only a minor change.

Asus seems to try to make Asus ROG GL552VW as the latest solution for their two products, GL552JW and GL551JW.
