Max. Fan speed and numpad are wrong for the Asus ROG Strix G17 G713. Mine goes to about 6700 RPMs in manual mode (you can decide the max fan speed in manual mode, this is at 90% i don’t want to go higher because I’m afraid to damage something) G17 also does have a Numpad. But not in the trackpad like the ads want you to think. I was hoping on finding something about peak brightness. It’s in my opinion one of two flaws of this and generally every gaming laptop: 1. As I said peak brightness….I would wish for 400 or more nits instead of the 300 that most laptops have. Even if I don’t get the 300 hz refresh rate witch is stupid anyway. 2. Trackpad doesn’t use every last bit of space that it has. It’s large enough but there is so much unused room….
