User experience

As usual during our weeks in the company of the ASUS ROG Spatha X we tested the device both during everyday operations, alternating between Excel sheets, browsers and so on, and during long gaming sessions.

A package therefore extremely complete and intuitive to use, which is unlikely to disappoint anyone.

To report is only an excessive predisposition of the software to various updates, with Armory Crate that often will ask you to update something preventing you from normal program operation until you do it. .
