Fantastic Laptop for the price.
Hi, I have just ordered the ASUS Tuf gaming F15 FA506IV-AL043T for AUD 1899 via Shopping Express. For this price, I am so happy with the specifications that are packed in this laptop and I have got the black one.
I am using this laptop for work and also light gaming. Its always good to have the extra specs ready just in case. I like the upgradability options where I can add more ram and a 2.5 inch SSD or HDD. It's so cool, I can also add a 1TB Nvme SSD. I purchased this laptop because my old Mac failed.

Worth the money I paid as the quality of the laptop is 10/10
I got mine at a lower price on sale and was extremely impressed by the product I received as it does everything I wanted and more without overheating or running loudly.
Definitely worth the upgrade from a 1650 to the 2060!

some minor issues with software drivers but just requires a simple uninstall and reinstall of them. Definitely worth purchasing as it runs games perfectly. I can play modern day games and can't wait to play Cyberpunk on it.

Decent for the cost
Aesthetically it's off to a good start although this is subjective. The keyboard is tactile in its rebound which can take a little getting used to, but the RGB backlighting definitely generates ambience. The screen brightness isn't great and personally I found my eyes getting a bit dry over an hour of use despite the antiglare IPS. I got this instead of the FA506II but this is more of an impulse decision because of the RTX 2060 but I'm yet to see a major difference that justifies every dollar of the $400 difference, although I'm not doubting it...just yet. The trackpad can be a little sticky, but then, I come from MacBook origins and gaming would be more concerned with a mouse setup than the trackpad. Finally, with numerous modern titles now exceeding 100GB in storage requirement with updates, I'm not entirely confident how long it can last before external storage will become necessary. On a full charge I managed between 3-4hrs of admin (non-gaming) on average setting, this added with the weight (>2kg) does not make it ideal as a portable work solution.
Great value for money
$2099 AUD was a pretty good price for a Ryzen R7/RTX 2060/16gb, especially with all you get in this laptop.
I was looking for something that would be able to handle video editing as well as a decent gaming laptop and this ticks both boxes with ease - especially on a budget.
Also wanted something with a little more longevity and with the option to upgrade various components this was an easy choice.
Its durable design is also a plus and provides peace on mind knowing it can handle being accidentally dropped or mishandled.
Overall very happy and would definitely recommend

The quality of the graphics and general speed is second to none.
From now on I will only buy the Asus brand. The only draw-back is that they can be a bit expensive.

Mid tier laptop feels like high end gaming laptop!
I bought this laptop to use for Uni and gaming at the same time. I play a lot of high demanding games and i am so happy that i can play them with ultra settings. I bought the RTX 2060 with ryzen 7 4800H and it is like a beast. Best feature that i like is that how fast it is, i can switch from gaming to doing work at the same time without closing any programs. For its price worth it! I am one extremely happy customer and will continue to support ASUS

Good Low to lower -Mid level gaming laptop of late 2020
Purchased the Ryzen R9/RTX 2060/16gb model. I wanted to make sure it was somewhat future proofed for the next two years considering the new nvidia 3000 GPU series is coming out soon.
For $2300 AUD it was an alright purchase as the next step up in gaming laptop was going to be close to 3k and the lower models at not so much of a lower price were a bit dated.
Unit is so far so good. I hope it runs high demand games like Cyber Punk decently when it comes out.
I've looked at how the rams could be upgraded and it seems pretty simple as opposed to other models of different brands.
Its pretty nice having a portable gaming unit to be taken anywhere i go.

Fast & Sturdy
I bought this laptop to use at work, I'm a mechanic and I am getting in and out of cars all day. I bought this laptop because of the sturdy construction, it has been a blessing and has survived being dropped a few times without being damaged.

Haven't received unit yet
Haven't received my machine yet because of delays caused by COVID-19, but the specs on this machine are great for the price point - happy to provide an update once I unbox.
Purchased in June 2020.
Seems good so far
This laptop just arrived today. Boxed very nicely, lighter than I expected, and so far it runs very well.
Looking forward to testing it more extensively. I'll probably upgrade with an extra SSD.
What a cracker of a machine. At least than half. Packing 16fb of 3200mhz ram and an rtx2060. Cheap, fast, upgradeable.
Cheap, fast, upgradeable for years to come. I can't get over the speed and smoothness display and how quick it works and plays. This is what they do huh? I'm in. For life!!

unbelievable price point!
This laptop has better specs than most of the competitors for machines that they charge more than double for. I dont get it. The gigabyte has an OLED screen but its not worth $2500 more for it, no way!! Thanks Comp alliance for an awesome deal again!

Great value of money
PROS: 1. Unbeatable price
2. AMD YES!
3. Extra SSD slot good for upgrading
CONS: 1. Battery relatively low
2. fan noise super loud when playing PUBG and other games
3. Click button on touch bar very soft, felling wired to click, rather use mouse

Great value for money!
The value that you get from this laptop is amazing. Battery life also for a "gaming" laptop is above par. 4 Series amd CPU is so quick and definitely lives up to the hype!

Does the trick.
I have been forced to write a review to claim my $100 voucher so although i have only just turned it on and waiting for the miryad of updated to complete i can confidently say that this does turn on and function as a laptop.

Great budget laptop for the part time gamer
Good value for money - fan can be loud but if you are not hard gaming you can amend settings to lower it somewhat. For someone who is not serious gaming, I am very happy with this so far!
Purchased in June 2020 at Computer Alliance Physical store for $2,099.00.
good option for budget gaming
Good value for the money. The Ryzen 7 CPU and RTX 2060 graphic card are amazing at this price point compare to others. The design is decent even though could have been better.

Great bang for buck!
Excellent value for the money.
The RTX2060 + 144Hz FHD display make gaming very enjoyable, but use a headset as the fans get LOUD.
The Ryzen 7 is an absolute monster and daily tasks are a breeze.

Great budget laptop
Average screen and cheap plastic construction don't hold back the very impressive CPU and graphics card within. The keyboard is quite good and the LED lighting is subtle and not too over the top. A larger battery wouldn't have hurt, but the additional space for drives is impressive.

Perfect product exaclty how i thought it would be
beast proccessor great screen great rgb keyboard very quick to start with an nvme ssd

Lightweight and Powerful
Bought this just the other day on 20/June/2020 and already its running games and software much quicker than my last laptop which was one of the reasons why I chose it. Much easier to transport too. The extra ports for SSDs and Hardrives made it much easier for me to relocate my files and conserve space. I do agree with many other comments in the screen is a little dim but since I use a dual display it hasn't caused much in the way of issues.
At the moment I'm using it to both edit videos and game with problems at all.
Definitely a recommendation
