The 14-inch gaming notebook will include an IPS FHD panel, Skylake i7-6700HQ CPU, GTX 965M GPU, and a small 31 Wh battery for an import price of about $1330 USD.

Known primarily for washers, dryers, and kitchenware, Haier will soon be launching a new line of gaming notebooks called Thunderobot. The Chinese manufacturer showed off the Thunderobot ST-R1 last week at Computex 2016 with decent specifications including:

It's unclear if the notebook will be an original OEM design or a simple rebrand of an existing chassis. Nonetheless, the aesthetic and colors do give off an Alienware vibe. We recommend checking out the source for more specifications and pictures of the hardware and to see more Thunderobot SKUs as well.

The ST-R1 can be pre-ordered through Chinese resellers and GearBest in North America. Users in Europe will have to put down about $1300 USD for the notebook. Sales end June 10th with an unknown ship date thereafter.
