Reviews for the Asus Strix Scar 17 G732LXS
While many high-end laptops are rather discreetly designed, the Strix Scar 17 is visually clearly aimed at gamers. The tested model, G732LXS, can show off with Nvidia's currently strongest notebook GPU. However, Asus has opted for the weakest TGP version of the RTX 2080 Super.

So, despite its relatively bulky appeal to ultrabook users, this notebook is actually pretty compact for a 17-inch gaming beast of this caliber. However, we found that the battery life has taken a toll. Whether it is because of the 300Hz display, or because of the hardware, we only got 86 minutes of Web browsing and 81 minutes of video playback. No matter the setting, nor preset. Moreover, the machine lacks Thunderbolt connectivity and an SD card reader, although it has Wi-Fi 6 certification.
