Other Specs of ASUS TUF A15 Ryzen 5-
It comes with Heat Colling pipes with self-Cleaning Fans that intakes air and throws out dirt automatically, helps laptop for a longer life. Also built is Military grade (for saying uk) but is Hard Fibber Plastic Chassis with honeycomb grill design at the back for Air intake.
TUF A15 Ryzen5 4600H with NVIDIA 1650 4GB GPU Review:
Top Built (Lead)
Built is made of total fibre means a A-Class Plastic with solid built feeling not a cheap grade frame, hinges are of metal that is good for durability. Top Lead is Glossy/Matte finish and comes in 2 colours Grey Metal & Smoke Black with Centre TUF Logo (that doesn’t glow) but as the name suggest its TUF & Rough. Although it’s a slight flexy if pushed from the centre point but a very slight not too much.
Screen has no flex or curvy, means its hard to bend. Even you should try to open the Laptop with 1hand coz hinges can be harmed or break because they are stiff.
Bottom Panel Built
Bottom Panel is easily upgradable with simple unscrewing which can give access to add more RAM & SSD. Also Honeycomb Designed cut feeling through which intakes Air.
Sides Built (Port Area)
At sides you get Port options which are mentioned in specs except thunderbolt port or Card Reader or Optic Drive but in a pack its everything you need. Built here isn’t shabby or shady like on some laptops where it start breaking from corners.
Internal & Fan position (Keyboard and Design)
Between Hinges space there’s grill for Air out space & other than that TUF graving on inside panel in keyboard area with LED indicators for Battery & Performance status.
Oneflow RGB style Keyboard but not individual separator eg, you can only set keyboard color on a single flow but can’t set each key according to your choice like can do on ROG.
Thing to notice the feel of Keyboard and Fan Noise, in test we didn’t notice any Fan Noise even using at Turbo Mode and Keyboard feel is nice with good travel distance.
Mousepad also feels solid with no flex & 2 tactile buttons with a palm space while typing or gaming. Numpad is separated and arrow keys are also given space to breath.
Processor, Storage & RAM
AMD Ryzen 5 4600H clocked at 3Ghz, Turbo Boost upto 4Ghz built at 7nm with NVIDIA Gforce 1650 4GB Graphics Card & comes with 512SSD & 1TB HDD, Liquid Cooling technology with heat pipes and antidust fans by ASUS are kinda so hard to break. It’s heavy performing & no less than a beast performer.
Based on 3200mhz speed it is fast of 3rd Gen NVME PciE SSD, DDR4 RAM & even 1TB Hard Disk that’s more than enough for anyone.
144hz Refresh Rate IPS LCD FULL HD Display (yess 144hz!) with 60-65% RBG support that seems a bit dull in compare to Displays which support 70-80% RGB Supported Displays. Although viewing angles are excellent with no blackout and you see the bride beautiful at every angle.
It’s not touch capacitive & not flexible as well like Notebooks but can tilt at 120 Degrees last. Even at Full brightness you might feel a darkness because screen is not that accurate although colors are punchy with almost edge-edge design 16:9 Display with a Webcam at top (All n all we feel OHK with it not OMG!).
Keyboard & Touchpad
It is of decent quality with as mentioned comes with RGB, has good hepatic feedback, soft feel, tactile with good typing experience and response is on point.
Even the Mouse/Touchpad works great with solid built, also comes with 2 buttons (left & right) which you can use while gaming and feel is also genuine (not of cheap quality)
Every major port is there, almost we mean except a little out of which some of them are outdated or not so needed, Yeah we know Please don’t get angry (CARD READER is imp, ik), for that you can buy an external Card Reader.

Out of the Box it comes with Windows 10 Home as OS with some preinstalled apps like ASUS Aura, MS Office Trial version, NVIDIDA Drivers which are some basics. For security they provide McFee Trial version but we don’t recommend it, instead you can use some other Antivirus which works with more precision like Guardian by QuickHeal.
Final Review on ASUS TUF A15 Ryzen5 4600H-
It is a good option to opt but certainly for pro gamers it isn’t as of some reason that you can find in bads. Considering it as a Budget Gaming Laptop we were happy to see this machine (like seriously yes), from built, to feel, to performance & to the price its enough what it gives.
At a starting of Rs.62999 we think it’s the best to get in the market if you searching for a budget gaming laptop. So in short terms we are happy with what we get in this machine and is satisfactory.

Heating issue that is the first thing to notice while using TUF A15 as HoneyComb grill design is a serious issue, not the design actually but cuts & spaces made under the lower panel where it takes air for cooling. The grills have space but are blocked for no reason (majorly) which can be sorted by the company by drilling them through after which temp can change from 80-85 Degrees to 60-65 Degrees which is drastic.
By this performance will get a boost even at full throttles, if you understand hindi consider watching above videos. Basically, if ASUS is able to solve this then a major hit can be seen.
Also as we mentioned not for pro gamers because it also lacks in taking full power from GPU side in aiming where Processor & RAM takes the load that could be solved with a Software Update I think.
Display as talked about is also a point to notice & SSD is near to heat pipes which makes it slower in performance, other than all this we didn’t find any other problem.
