ASUS makes some of the best gaming laptops out there and right now for its Black Friday sale, you can grab the TUF Gaming F17 laptop for a little over $200 off the regular list price. Usually the laptop retails for $1,399.99, but it’s currently on sale for $1,194.99. The F17 comes with a 17.3-inch Full HD IPS display with a 144Hz refresh rate. Which means smooth games.
It’s also running with a GeForce RTX 3060 GPU for graphics, in addition to an Intel Core i7-11800H CPU. Additional specs include 16GB of DDR4 RAM and a 1TB SSD for storage. There’s even a second M.2 NVMe SSD slot if you want to slide in one more drive for extra storage. As an ASUS TUF Gaming laptop, the F17 is designed with a more durable construction and uses an MIL-STD-810H build.
That doesn’t mean you can toss it around, but it should hold up better from the occasional bump because sometimes accidents do happen. What we really like are the self-cleaning fans, which ASUS claims can help prevent dust buildup so the laptop has a longer lifespan. Though we’d still recommend giving them a thorough cleaning every once in a while.
Naturally, it comes with an RGB backlit keyboard. This is a gaming laptop after all and RGB keyboards are pretty common among gaming laptops. Now the laptop does weigh about 5.73 lbs. so it’s not super heavy but not the lightest gaming laptop either. It also comes with a 3.5mm audio port, one HDMI 2.0 port, 2 USB 3.2 Type-A ports, one USB 3.2 Type-C port, and an ethernet port for hardwiring to the internet if you want it.
Overall, a solid gaming laptop for performance and a decent pickup with the discount. You can find the ASUS TUF Gaming F17 at the Black Friday deal by clicking here.
