Keyboard and Trackpad
The Asus TUF Gaming A15 FA506II-AS53 has a chicklet style backlit keyboard. The WASD keys are transparent and get a little extra RGB backlight. The arrow keys are a bit small with the num pad being a little narrow. Overall you will have a good experience while typing and Gaming. The trackpad on the other hand has a smooth matte surface though it lacks a little precision. The dedicated mouse buttons on the bottom are quite clicky and tactile and it is always better to have dedicated buttons.
