The Asus claims that the laptop comes with military-grade durability standards (MIL-STD-810H), it’s not the sturdiest laptop, but at this price point, you can’t complain. It is the sturdiest laptop I have ever experienced at this price. Asus claims that it can easily handle drops from as high up as 10 cm. It’s an excellent rating to have, but I haven’t done the drop test, so I cannot confirm that the claim made by Asus for the laptop holds up or not.
Coming back to the design of The TUF Gaming A15, the laptop has skinny bezels which makes the laptop a lot smaller and result in the 15-inch display fits perfectly, which above the mark you’d expect. The TUF Gaming A15 bezels are just perfect, and I love that.
