A gaming laptop is essentially a laptop whose creator threw all the fastest components at it, wrapped it all together with an edgy matte black body and a slick keyboard, and added some state-of-the-art cooling technology to keep it from frying your fingers.
That kind of cutting-edge tech typically costs bank. But lately, prices have been creeping down on some very slick gaming machines you can easily carry with you.
Add a Prime Day deal to that and it is time to strike!
ASUS ROG Strix Hero II Gaming Laptop, 15.6
This laptop is exactly what I’m talking about.
Start with the fastest processor on the market — the Intel i7-8750H Hexa-Core. Hexa core means that it has six processors, working in parallel to give you some serious processing power and speed.
Add 16 GB of DDR DR4 2666MHz RAM because no one who games wants to wait while the computer thinks about what you just asked it to do. (Do you want die because your system lags? Uh Uh. No sir.)
Then, for good measure, let’s throw in an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR6 graphics card. Because, duh! It’s 2019. Nvidia rules and this is a game not a spreadsheet!
That machine is gonna need the Hypercool Pro thermal system with dual 12V fans, Triple radiators and the heatsink. Darn right it is. Without some serious cooling all that power will burn your lap.
A system like this — just a few years ago — would have cost upwards of $3K.
Not today, my friend. Today, it is $1,499. That’s over $300 off list price.
