With its large screen with a high refresh rate and powerful internals, we see the ROG Strix Scar 17 G732LXS-HG086TS as the laptop for users who are looking for something to replace their desktop with a more mobile machine. It even allows the user a certain degree of control if you want to tinker and maximize its performance. It’s not the sleekest laptop around, but it’s definitely a performer. Lastly, at PHP 219,995 (17″ FHD IPS 300HZ / i9-10980HK / 32GB RAM 1TB x2 PCIe SSD / NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER / Win10 ), it’s expensive, yes, but the performance and the included bundles, makes it worthwhile.

17.30": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
