Overall, these nitpicks emphasize Asus’ priority with the Scar. It’s not a laptop that’s meant to double as a travel companion or a work-from-home driver — don’t buy it to be your primary PC.

If you’re looking to game on a budget then this machine is NOT for you. At $2200 this is not a budget machine. This is a high-end machine that was built to deliver a high quality gaming experience for hours of full use on end. You might even consider it a desktop replacement. This could also be a “con” but only if this was the only gaming laptop that Asus and ROG sold. It isn’t. You have choices. So if you’re looking to be on the higher end of a PC gaming laptop landscape then $1800 – $2500 is where you’ll most likely be, I won’t complain about the price. Neither should you. Asus has other less expensive quality gaming laptop options. As far as this gaming machine goes, this is one of the best gaming laptops I’ve ever used. Period.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
