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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
