Summary

Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 (G732) is a 17-inch laptop that isn't massive, but certainly has the requisite space and cooling for some seriously high-end parts. This laptop comes packed with up to Intel Core i9-10980HK processor, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super GPU, 32GB of memory, and two 1TB NVMe SSDs arrayed in a RAID 0 configuration so they function as one drive. While the Scar is of course primarily a gaming laptop, this level of proficiency in CPU-based tasks makes it a truly effective media-editing machine, too.
