I will post more pics cause this is the same pic I took about a month or two ago.
Yes, and interestingly enough, unlike some keyboards, in full lit rooms, the keymarks show white, but are shown through red when the backlight is on. So in that pictures, you can see the white key marks. But they are red when they are backlit. I will take some pictures later and post them.How's the fit and finish? Are the keys on the keyboard backlit? I'm kinda looking at getting one, and would like to know more about it before I jump in.
Does that thing get warm?ASUS RoG Strix GL502VS-DB71 Gaming Notebook
i7 6700HQ / GTX 1070
I am really happy with this laptop for the $1700 price it had. Fairly light (around 5lbs) so I can take it with as a 2nd computer on work trips (MacBook Pro shown is my work computer). The performance is insane. Screen is just good, build quality is good/great, keyboard is good.
I highly recommend it. Happy to have a great mobile gaming option now (hopelessly addicted to ARK: Survival Evolved, heh).

Same problem exists with this model - temps haven't exceeded high 80s while gaming (fan profiles don't work, yet in Afterburner - so that's with stock fan curve).Does that thing get warm?
Watched a review on an older model (the one with the 970M) that the back exhaust ports are blocked when the screen goes up and it gets quite hot.
Planning on picking up the 1060 variant, though I find the highlighted WASD keys a little too gamerish.
My other option is waiting for the Lenovo Thinkpad P50 successor with Kaby and a decent Pascal chip
