    I'm curious if the FA506IV version (with RTX 2060) has the Bonfire Black design? I like the black design better than the silver with screws, but I also would like to have the RTX 2060 option too. Thanks in advance

      I don't think so. the Bonfire is plastic and cheaper, so I'd reckon will only make it into the lower tier models.

        Can you tell when this laptop will be available in India?

    Please help me with the right choice. What model to buy ASUS TUF A15 FX506II with Geforce GTX 1650 TI that doesn't have the heatpipe next to SDD or this model ASUS TUF A 15 FA506IU with Geforce GTX 1660 TI ?

      the II is more affordable and should run a little cooler, but is also a significantly poorer gamer. See our A15 vs A17 comparison for reference.

        Thanks for the reply, actually I have the chance to get the MSI GS75 Stealth Rtx 2060 17.3 inch 16gb DDR4-2666 Ram 512GB SSD, wouldnt this be an better option than the 2 I mentioned?

        up to you, each have their pros and cons and each are overall good products in their classes.

        Oh forgot to mention that I would get the MSI at 1200$ new.

        hi , after changing the ssd from slot 1 to slot 2 in "IU, IV" version , does the laptop started running cooler like in " II " version , or it is still running hot ?

        SSD temperatures drop if you move the SSD to the second slot.

    does a 4TB hdd fit in this laptop? i think 4TB hdd is a bit thicker, correct?

      Depends on the model. If it's the 7mm in height version, it should fit just fine
