This video & article will show you an unboxing and fortnight benchmark of the HP ProBook 455 G6 Notebook.
HP ProBook 455 G6
The ProBook 455 G6 comes with an AMD Ryzen CPU and Radeon Vega GPU. When buying the notebook you can configure it with different versions of CPU and GPU. So if you are keen to do some gaming I would suggest trying to get the Radeon RX Vega 10 GPU included with your model. This means that you will be able to play games at a higher framerate which makes for smoother game play. The stock version which features in the video, comes with the Ryzen 5 2500U and Radeon Vega 8. This combo was a little slow when gaming in Fortnite and the benchmark. It means you might also struggle when doing video editing and CAD work.
Fold it down.
One of the really nice features about the ProBook 455 G6 is that the notebook folds down to 180 degrees. This is great if you are sitting around a table as it helps others see the screen without to much bother. Overall the notebook is designed very nicely and the case is made from silver plastic but it doesn’t feel cheap. The Keyboard is nice to type on and doesn’t bend. This click pad comes with multi touch gesture support however sometimes I struggle to find the left click. It feels like I have to put move my hand to far to the left to find it.
One thing I really like is the removal of having to hold down the FN “Function key” when turn the display brightness up and down. It just takes that extra step out of the equation which make sense because you use these buttons so much why not make them primary.

This video will show you how to update Asus laptop bios using a program called Winflash. Recently I did a video which highlighted an issue with the Asus GL702 Strix gaming laptop.
In game lag which would lag the game out every time turbo boost was used. I went and posted this fix on the Republic of Gamers forums and about a week later Asus released a bios fix. They also deleted my current post so thanks for that Asus.
However at least I highlighted an issue and they were able to fix the problem with a bios update.

If you go to the downloads part of the 123myit.com website. And scroll down to the bios link, I have added the BIOS upgrade for the GL702 system I have also added the winflash program.
You can use these two programs to upgrade the BIOS on your laptop. You can actually just download the winflash program and click on get bios from the web and it should go out and choose the correct bios for your model of laptop. If this doesn’t work I suggest doing a Google search for your correct model of laptop and then downloading the correct BIOS version for your laptop. Once this is done you will need to restart your laptop.
This video will show you the Asus GL702V Strix Unboxing & Benchmark. This laptop is a ultra mobile gaming laptop.
The Asus GL702V Strix gaming laptop has the latest 6th gen Intel processor and NVidia GTX graphics in a Compact lightweight design.
With a profile measuring just 24.7 millimetres and the whole laptop when only 2.7 kilograms the Strix GL702V is an ultra portable gaming laptop.
In fact it was so light I thought I had been sent the wrong laptop when I picked it up from the post office. The strix is VR ready with a GTX 1060 GPU which provides enough speed to power virtual reality gaming.
The Strix comes in two different sizes 15 and 17 inch and with many different GPU and CPU configurations.

This video will show you the Asus G751JT-CH71 Unboxing & Benchmark.
I am pretty excited as I sit down to write out this 123myIT update. The video above was the first video I have recorded in 4K resolution. It marks a new era for 123myIT and a higher video quality for 123myIT users.
Now that that’s over with, let start talking about the Asus G751JT-CH71 Unboxing. I have been a fanboy of the Asus Republic of Gamers laptops for the past 4 years. As much as I hate to say the word, its probably true.
Why do I upgrade to a new laptop every year I here you ask? Well I use the laptop for gaming and for work on the 123myIT.com website. So I like to keep the technology up to date. So after one year I buy the newest laptop and I sell the old one on websites like Gumtree.com. This allows me to keep up to date with the latest hardware without costing an arm or leg. I also never buy the very top of the line hardware as I don’t see it as value for money. And while you might think this laptop is the top of the range, its actually not and I will explain why. This model comes with the Geforce GTX 970m and not the Geforce GTX 980m which is the faster GPU. This model also doesn’t include the faster SSD drive rather it has the slower 1TB 7200 RPM Sata drive. Which I will actually do a video on how to upgrade hard drive later. So as you can see, I have gone purely for bang for my buck type of laptop.
What I like about the Asus laptops is that they are powerful with nice design don’t have ugly flashing lights on them, they run at a cool temperature due to the massive big fan cooling system on the back of the laptops.
So on first look at the latest Asus G751JT-CH71 model, the first things I noticed is that the grills at the back of the laptop have been panted red. I am not sure If I like this colour change I see it a kind of “try hard”. But maybe that’s just my taste and others will probably disagree with me.
The next thing you will notice is the keyboard has changed from white background keys to red, and the keyboard now includes a few extra keys such as the ROG key, Shadow Play, Stream and Macro keys. Also the WASD keys have been highlighted with a awesome red colour which make hem stand out. The only draw back here I seem to press Shadow Play key by mistake rather then the Escape key which I find very annoying as it boot me out of any game I might be playing and back to the desktop.
The other upgrades are the newer 17.3″ 16:9 IPS FHD (1920×1080) anti-glare display which makes the colours look deeper as well as a CPU upgrade.
Asus has tied it all together very nicely with a well designed chassis.
While this laptop wont be for everyone, if you are looking for a desktop replacement gaming laptop then you should definitely take a look at the Asus G751JT-CH71.
This video will show you an Unboxing, Review and Benchmark of the Asus G750JX-TB71 Gaming Laptop.
Recently I upgraded my laptop from the Asus G75VM-RS72 to the Asus G750JX-TB71. The main reason for this is because I am a gaming fan and I like to have a decent gaming pc. However because I am limited on space in my house at the moment I don’t have any room for a study. So the trade off is a high end gaming laptop. After using the Republic Of Gamers laptop for about a year now I think its actually a better solution and here’s why.
First of all the laptop takes up less space and uses much less power than a desktop box.
Secondly its very portable. I can move to any part of my tiny house and occasionally I take it around to a mates place for a night of gaming. In the last year it has been mostly Guild Wars 2. However I am hanging out for Elder Scrolls online. 🙂
What I really like about the ROG laptops is decent gaming performance plus the design of the laptops are very good. The air flow and cooling vents makes for a quite and cooler laptop. The non slip rubber type black plastic allows the user to rest the laptop in your lap without the danger of it slipping off.
The laptop doesn’t have ugly flashy lights like the Alienware or the MSI range of laptops. So maybe it is suited to the more mature gamer such as myself.
All this has sold me on the Asus over the Dell XPS range. And while I still like Dell, the performance and design of the Asus has won me over for now at least.
Now that I have all of that out of the way, I will add the links for the benchmark software that I have used in the video above to this post below. Feel free to download and compare the results of your own laptop to this video.
You can find the Benchmark downloads on the Downloads section of the 123myIT website here.
