Design & first look

The TUF FX504 borrows some aesthetic lines from the existing hãng asus ROG notebooks, but is for the most part a brand new design, completely different from the design of the FX503 line it replaces.

It’s up to lớn you whether you’ll lượt thích it or not. Personally I’m a fan of plain và simple designs, and on one side this one doesn’t get any flashy màu sắc accents aside from the red bordering on the keys, và doesn’t get any sorts of annoying lights either; but on the other, the interior is perhaps a bit over-crafted for my taste, with that pattern on the sides that somewhat mimics circuit lines. It’s not ugly though & I could get used to it.

The TUF FX504 series is aggressively priced, but competes in a highly competitive niche.
