ASUS ROG recently announced the world’s slimmest gaming laptop (ROG Zephyrus GX501), which will house a NVIDIA GTX 1080, for preorder at RM15,999. Containing a 7th gen Intel Core, 120Hz display, RGB chiclet keyboard and of course, better cooling, all of this fits in a sleek 17.9mm thin chassis. Now, the only pressing concern other than prices is the fact that it has only a 4-cell Li-ion battery. Like with all gaming laptops, I would say good luck to anyone trying to run one of these laptops without being tethered to the wall socket.

Now if laptops aren’t for you, then you can always have the ROG Desktop (ROG GT51CH) which will be arriving on the 18th September 2017 for RM 11,999. Containing an I7-7700K, NVIDIA GTX 1080Ti, 2x 16GB DDR4 2400 MHZ, and a HDD SATA 2TB 7200RPM plus NVME 512GB M.2 SSD, this machine means business.

If the prices from the above setups are still too pricey, you can always go for the ROG Strix GD30CI desktop for RM7,499. It will also be available on the 18th September and contains a NVIDIA GTX 1070, 16GB of DDR4 2400MHz RAM, 1TB HDD 7200RPM plus a M.2 PCIE 256G SSD. Which is more than suitable enough to play any of the popular game out on the market.
