Asus Gaming Laptops

Asus is among the most renowned brands in gaming laptops, right there with Alienware and other major players in the industry. With its TUF series and the premium ROG (Republic of Gamers) line, the Taiwanese manufacturer has something for everyone, from entry-level models to high-end models equipped with the latest GPU and CPU technology.

Despite its premium specs, the ROG Strix Scar 16 is a portable machine. The 17-inch screen has between 144Hz and 244Hz, and has a resolution of 1080 pixels. This is enough to give you a full-on experience. The battery will last 6-8 hours of multi-use and its fans do not sound too loud, even when under load.

The Scar 16 has a design that’s a bit gamer-like but not overly flashy. Its most notable feature is its prismatic lid that catches light and shines it through 8,279 tiny holes for a rainbow-like appearance. The hinge for the display also lifts the back of the chassis, which improves airflow and also makes the keyboard tilt towards you. Asus calls it its ErgoLift hinge.

This laptop is ideal for gaming, but can be used for other tasks that require processing like video editing or image manipulation. It has a lot of 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. Its speakers are loud, but they can become dispersed and shrill when you play them at a high volume which is why you’ll need to pair it with headphones. You’ll need to delete some unwanted software, such as McAfee Personal Security or the Dolby app.
