    Questions about the Asus Strix ROG GL502VS

    Hi! I'm looking to buy an ASUS Strix GL502VS by next week and I just had a few questions I needed to ask before buying it.

    1. Can you charge it with a powerbank? If so, using what powerbank? And can you charge it using its USB-C port?

    *Here's the aforementioned laptop: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01NALTGWN/ref=dp_ob_nev... Ideally the powerbank should be able to last me an entire day (or probably a maximum of 7-8 hours) of mild usage (ex. Word/Excel/Web Browsing) not hardcore gaming.

    There was an article on here that mentioned a powerbank that could charge this laptop (see here: *https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0116BX968...AAAAAAGTb&th=1) however the author didn't mention how long it extended the laptop's battery life by.

    *2. If I were to replace one of the hard drives with a 1 TB Crucial SSD (not Samsung pls it's too expensive), which would be better? (the 128 GB M.2 SSD or the 1 TB 5200 RPM HDD--leaning towards replacing the HDD right now)

    3. The cost to buy all of this currently stands at $2150.35 (without a case, please recommend a cheap case hehe), is all this expense really worth it? Or am I better off buying something else (was originally going for the Dell XPS 15 but the GTX1070 is tempting) I'm aiming for portability, battery life and performance but especially a laptop that won't turn into a brick 4-5 years from now.

    **Thank you so much for your time!!

    P.S. I have to make a decision in the next 2-3 days, your urgency would be GREATLY appreciated *

    EDIT: I just read an article on this forum about the discharging battery (while in charge) on the 6th Gen GL502, is that problem still on the 7th Gen GL502? Thanks!
