Deal | Asus ROG Strix III G731GU with Core i7-9750H, GTX 1660 Ti graphics, and 512 GB SSD is only $900 right now
Sales are becoming increasingly more lucrative now that we're just days away from Black Friday. The latest deal involves the 17.3-inch Asus ROG Strix III gaming laptop for just $900 at Best Buy. This sale is particularly notable because the Strix III is a higher-end Asus gaming laptop unlike the lesser budget TUF series. In fact, the Strix III is barely a year old meaning that Best Buy isn't just running the sale to clear stock of older or already outdated laptops.
The $900 asking price will net you the latest generation Intel 9th gen Core i7-9750H CPU, GeForce GTX 1660 Ti Turing GPU, 16 GB of RAM, and a roomy 512 GB SSD. When considering that this exact configuration launched for about $1400 USD earlier in the year, the deal is quite the bargain.
As noted in our full review of the Strix III, however, the system offers no Thunderbolt 3 ports and it can get quite loud even for a gaming laptop. There is also no webcam meaning that you'll have to provide your own external USB solution for video chatting. Nonetheless, chassis rigidity is excellent especially for a narrow-bezel design. If you're in the market for an affordable but powerful 17.3-inch gaming laptop, then the Asus ROG Strix III G731GU should be near the top of your list this Thanksgiving.
