The Asus ROG Gaming Laptop is insanely fast, and it's currently $400 off

An incredible value, the Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition offers excellent performance at an exceptionally low price. PCWorld Associate Editor 14 JULY 2022, 7:05 A.M. PDT If you're seeking a powerful gaming laptop at an affordable price, you've found it.

Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition laptops are on sale at Best Buy for $1,249.99. That represents a $400 savings over the original price. 

Our evaluation of this model a year ago rated it four and a half stars and awarded it with the Editor's Choice award because it provided excellent performance, shockingly good audio, and an unbeatable price.

A high-end AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU, a GPU of equal quality, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of NVMe SSD storage power the Asus ROG Strix G15.

In addition to the 15.6-inch display, the display also has a resolution of 1920x1080 and a blisteringly fast refresh rate of 300Hz, which makes it a perfect complement to the ultra-potent hardware as it is.

In addition to the USB 3.2 Type-A and Type-C ports, there is an HDMI port, as well as Gigabit Ethernet. The trackpad is relatively smooth and the keyboard has a good travel distance.

A public service announcement will do. A stunning price-to-performance ratio makes the Asus ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition an excellent choice for those looking for an affordable yet insanely fast laptop on a medium budget. That is doubly true now because of today's outstanding price cut.

In terms of its hardware, it is lacking Thunderbolt support, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it isn't a good purchase as such-although, in today's world of Zoom-centric computers, that may be a deal breaker.

There are ways to work around that, though, and this is a fantastic gaming laptop going for a fantastic price. It'll compete with portable RTX 3080 laptops, although it'll cost you a fraction of what they do.
