The Asus ROG Flow X16 also comes with a high-quality 240Hz QHD screen with up to 500 nits. Thanks to its relatively low weight and slim chassis, the currently discounted 16-inch laptop is also a fitting choice for traveling gamers.

The enticing Lenovo IdeaPad Pro 5i isn't the only dGPU-powered 16-inch laptop that's currently on sale. Alternatively, buyers who are in the market for a more gaming-focused but not too bulky notebook can benefit from a steep discount for the versatile Asus ROG Flow X16.

To be more exact, Best Buy has marked the Asus ROG Flow X16 with the Intel Core i9-13900H and Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060 down to $1,349 including free shipping or store pickup. The mid-range gaming laptop is further equipped with soldered 16GB LPDDR5 RAM, a 1TB SSD and a smooth 240Hz QHD display with Dolby Vision support. This configuration of the Asus ROG Flow X16 usually costs over $1,800, which means that this gaming notebook deal offers savings of up to $500 or 27% in relation to MSRP.

We tested a very similar version of the ROG Flow X16 last year, and our detailed review includes dozens of important benchmarks and all technical intricacies of this good-looking laptop from Asus. Please also check out our accompanying review video on YouTube, which provides more visual impressions of the beautiful 16-inch chassis and impressive QHD touchscreen.

Furthermore, we liked the high CPU performance of the Core i9 processor from Intel's Raptor Lake series. The fairly quiet cooling system in performance mode also received some praise, but gamers should also be aware that the Asus ROG Flow X16 can get very loud in its so-called "turbo mode". All in all, this RTX 4060 laptop is a versatile and very portable compromise between a true-bred gaming notebook and multimedia convertible and definitely worth consideration at the discounted price.
