Asus Gaming Laptops

Asus is a renowned brand in gaming laptops. It’s in the same league as Alienware and other big names in the industry. Taiwanese manufacturer Asus offers a range of products for all budgets, including entry-level models and powerhouses with the most modern GPU and processor technology.

Despite its premium specs, the ROG Strix Scar 16 is a portable device. Its 17-inch screen features an 144Hz to 240Hz refresh rate and is available in 1080p resolution, which is still sufficient to provide an immersive experience. Its battery lasts 6-8 hours of use, and its fans don’t sound too loud, even under stress.

The Scar 16 has a design that’s a little gamer-like but not overly flashy. Its most distinctive characteristic is its prismatic lid, that catches light and shines it through tiny holes of 8,279 for a rainbow-like effect. The laptop’s display pivot lifts the chassis forward, which improves airflow. It also slopes the keyboard toward you. Asus calls it the ErgoLift hinge.

This laptop is ideal for gaming, but can also handle other tasks that require a lot of processing such as video editing or image manipulation. It’s loaded with ports that include USB 3.2 Gen 2 type-C, HDMI 2.0b and a 3.5mm combo connector. There’s also a dedicated SD slot. The speakers are powerful, but can distort and become shrill when you play them at high volume. It is recommended to pair them with headphones. The only downside is minor undesirable software that you’ll need to get rid of like McAfee Personal Security and the Dolby App.
