Sentiment Score[*] 72%
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
Asus ROG laptops are almost the opposite of Razer laptops in terms of aesthetic design. While Razer models tend to be flat and minimalist with no LED extremities. Asus has a WQHD (2560 x 1440) IPS SKU that promises full DCI-P3 coverage at the cost of a slower native refresh rate.

Pros[**]

Cons[**]

The Asus ROG Strix SCAR 17 G733 is a gaming laptop that isn't ashamed to appeal to gamers. It's packed with some of the best gaming hardware around, including an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX 8-core overlocked processor. It also has an Nvidia RTX 3080 16GB laptop GPU, 32GB of RAM and an optical mechanical keyboard. However, the lack of an integrated webcam and awkward placement of some ports at the rear of the laptop won't appeal to everyone.

Reviewers from Tomshardware have found the following[***]:
Asus' latest rendition of the ROG Strix Scar 17 looks like a Ferrari from the outside and a ‘90s MP3 player from the inside. There's a swappable end cap on the laptop's hinge that reads ‘ROG’ and a dot matrix design on half of the laptop lid's back that subtly says “ROG.” The laptop's right side also has a notch for the Strix's proprietary “keystone,” which can unlock certain drives.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek, premium design
  • Excellent gaming performance
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Not as powerful as the Alienware model
