Asus is a top brand in gaming laptops. It’s right up there with Alienware and other industry giants. Taiwanese manufacturer Asus offers a wide range of products that fit all budgets, including basic models as well as powerful ones that feature the most recent GPU and processor technology.
The ROG Strix Scar 16 has high-end specs, but is an ultra-portable device. The 17-inch screen has between 144Hz and 244Hz, and has the resolution of 1080p. This is sufficient to provide an immersive experience. The battery can last for 6-8 hours of use and its fans don’t get too loud, even under load.
The Scar 16’s design has some gaming-inspired aesthetics, but it’s not excessively flashy. Its transparent lid is its most distinctive feature. It catches light and shines through 8,279 tiny openings to create a rainbow effect. The laptop’s display pivot also raises the chassis back to improve airflow. It also tilts the keyboard towards you. Asus calls this hinge its ErgoLift.
This laptop is great for gaming, but can also handle other processing-intensive tasks like editing video or image manipulating. It’s got plenty of ports – USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, HDMI 2.0b, 3.5mm combo jack, and Gigabit Ethernet — and an SD card slot that is dedicated to. Its speakers are powerful however they can get loud and distort when you play them at a high volume So you’ll probably need to pair it with headphones. The only issue is minor undesirable software that will need to be removed including McAfee Personal Security and the Dolby App.
