When it comes to gaming laptops, the ASUS ROG line has some of the best machines, and right now Best Buy has a deal where you can save hundreds on a really good model.
As part of Best Buy’s Black Friday sales, which have started early, there’s a deal where you can get this ASUS ROG gaming laptop for $1,499. It’s normal price is listed at $1,849, so you’re saving $350 off the normal price tag.
That’s definitely still a good chunk of money for a gaming laptop. But it does come with some pretty good specs. Which means decently powerful gaming in a nice portable package. On the inside it comes with an NVIDIA RTX 3060 GPU, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD for storing all of your games and everything else, and an Intel Core i9-11900H CPU. So, it has one of the newest generation CPUs that Intel offers.
Plus, it comes out of the box with Windows 11. Meaning you get all of the new gaming benefits from Windows 11 right away. On the outside, this laptop comes with a 165Hz refresh rate display that’s 16-inches in size. Plenty of space for gaming on the go or even at home.
Additionally, the display has a resolution of 2560 x 1600. As gaming laptops go, these days you want to consider two things. Power plus performance, and then portability. While this isn’t as small as say, the Razer Blade 14, which is on our Best Gaming Laptops guide, it’s still plenty small enough to carry around. And it only weighs about 4.19 lbs. So, it’s not very heavy.
Which makes it even easier to bring with you just about anywhere. A few other extras include a built-in HD webcam, an RGB backlit keyboard, and Wi-Fi 6 compatibility. And, one last little perk is that it comes with one free month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
