Asus ROG Strix Scar 17: Not only visually striking
LED fans get their money's worth with the Strix Scar 17. In addition to the keyboard, three side surfaces are also illuminated. In general, the case has a very unique visual design.
Despite the moderate height, Asus packs a GeForce RTX 2080 Super (but only the 150 watt version) under the hood of the top model G732LXS, which in combination with the Core i9-10980HK generates a lot of heat and especially noise. The absence of a webcam and a Thunderbolt 3 port could also deter some potential buyers.
On the positive side, the responsive 300 Hz display, the good input devices and the decent sound could be mentioned among other things. The battery life is surprisingly impressive, too.
