The first thing to make clear is that this mighty, AMD-powered, Republic of Gamers laptop certainly ain’t no meek and mild Ryzen Mobile notebook. This isn’t about efficiently balancing a low-power CPU core with an elegant, built-in GPU solution - this is all about raw performance. Hell, it is an Asus Strix gaming laptop after all.
No gamer worth talking to plays on a trackpad - you’re going to need the best gaming mouse to go with your gaming laptop.
Asus haven’t waited for AMD to create a high-performance mobile version of their Ryzen CPUs - indeed, it’s looking increasingly unlikely they will do ahead of the 7nm Zen 2 - they’ve just gone full steam ahead with the Asus ROG Strix GL702ZC and dropped an octa-core Ryzen 7 desktop CPU into their standard Strix laptop chassis.
