With more "affordable" configurations that start just north of US$4,000, the Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 upgraded by GreatPriceTech tops at no less than US$8,568. For this price, Amazon customers can get the 64 GB/2 X 8 TB version of this laptop with AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080, as well as a mouse and a pad.

While the latest Asus ROG Strix laptops are still not available for purchase, GreatPriceTech is unleashing customized configurations of last year's models that come with generous memory and storage, but also high prices to match the changes. The custom-upgraded Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 (model G533QS-DS98, released back in 2021) with AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 with a pair of 8 TB PCIe SSDs and 64 GB DDR4 memory is available for an eye-watering US$8,568 via Amazon.

The aforementioned gaming laptop that was upgraded by GreatPriceTech comes with a one-year manufacturer warranty and the standard retail package also includes the wired TUF Gaming M3 mouse and the TUF Gaming P3 mouse pad. In addition to the specs and features mentioned above, the 15.6-inch WQHD display with 165 Hz refresh rate should also be mentioned. The machine comes with Windows 11 Pro 64-bit preinstalled.

Next to this configuration, GreatPriceTech is also selling an US$8,088 Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 with 32 GB memory and a pair of 8 TB SSDs. The list of less expensive options includes three price tag: US$5,368 (64 GB/2 X 4 TB), US$4,568 (64 GB/2 X 2 TB), and US$4,088 (32 GB/2 X 2 TB).

These custom products have no reviews on Amazon yet, but those interested in them should take a closer look at our in-depth review of the Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 G533QS. The review concluded that "Asus' latest 15.6-inch ROG Strix Scar 15 feels more complete and easier to upgrade than the thinner Zephyrus lineup." while also showing that its loud mechanical keys don't make it a good choice for use cases where silent operation is mandatory.
