I bought this as a show machine to run animations and render video for large corporate conferences. Very impressed indeed. Here's why:

Huge power and speed for the money. This massively outperforms my top-spec 2018 MacBook Pro, and cost £1500 less. Responsive keypad and excellent screen.
I love the numeric keypad function on the trackpad. Putting the keyboard illumination on static white (a challenge - see bad points) is ideal for backstage work.

Video rendering is lightning-fast. A typical After Effects or Premiere Pro project, with effects, usually renders in less than the vid's actual running time.
It's annoying that the Asus Aura lighting controls don't work on an Asus machine! After a lot of fiddling and a firmware update, it's now sort of working, but no chance of the "key by key" selection promised. This isn't an issue for my use, but gamers might feel differently.
The USB-C output is flakey when running video. It just doesn't seem to handle the bandwidth. No such issues on HDMI port, though, so only really an issue if you need to run animation on two external monitors.
