Asus Gaming Laptops

Asus is a renowned brand in gaming laptops. It’s in the same league as Alienware, and other industry giants. Taiwanese manufacturer Asus offers a variety of products to suit all budgets, from basic models as well as powerful ones that feature the most modern GPU and processor technology.

Despite its high-end specs, the ROG Strix Scar 16 is a portable device. The 17-inch screen has 144Hz to 244Hz and comes with the resolution of 1080p. This is enough to provide a rich experience. The battery can last for 6-8 hours of continuous use and its fans don’t get too loud, even under stress.

The Scar 16 has a design that’s a little gamer-like but not overly flashy. The lid’s prismatic design is the most striking feature. It catches the light and shines through tiny openings to create the effect of a rainbow. The laptop’s display pivot also raises the chassis back which increases airflow. It also slopes the keyboard towards you. Asus calls it its ErgoLift hinge.

This laptop is great for gaming, but can also handle other processing-intensive tasks like video editing or image manipulating. It has a lot of ports that are included, including USB 3.2 Gen 2 type-C, HDMI 2.0b and a 3.5mm combo jack. There’s also a dedicated SD slot. The speakers are powerful but can distort and then become extremely loud when they are in high volume. You’ll want to pair them with headphones. You’ll have to get rid of undesirable software, such as McAfee Personal Security or the Dolby application.
