Check out ASUS’ new gaming notebook

Aside from launching the Transformer Book Chi a few days ago, ASUS also released their ROG G551 gaming notebook in the PH as well. The G551 is part of ASUS’ Republic of Gamers gaming brand, and as such is equipped with the latest gaming tech to let you play your games on the road, anytime. The ROG G551 is equipped with a 15.6-inch full HD display, GTX 960M GPU, Intel Core i7-4710HQ processor as well as 16GB of DDR3 memory and 1TB of storage.

The ROG G551 may be the one of the most expensive notebooks you can buy in the market but its performance more than makes up for the price. The GTX 960M GPU is able to play most (if not all) modern games at full HD resolution without any issues, plus the 1TB of storage is more than enough to handle the inevitable installation of Grand Theft Auto 5 (if ever Rockstar decide to release it for the PC).

The ROG G551 also has better thermal disappation compared to other notebooks, and has the company’s SonicMaster Premium audio as well as a pre-installed headphone amplifier – for those times you want to pump up the volume without waking your neighbors.

Of course all of these nice features come at a price – the ROG G551 retails for Php 69,995.

  1. 69,995 is not bad for the specs and bragging rights that its an ROG notebook. I don’t get the point why its “whooping” in price if they too have those giant 100k rog laptops.

    1. I think the price is quite right for the specs. I’d go for this rather than alienware unless may 50% discount ang alienware. Hahahaha! 🙂

  2. Have this laptop. Bought it a month back or so.
    I do like how it performs right now. Have not tested it yet with games but I did run Tera at full graphics for 30mins to test it out and it ran at 30fps or below depending on how crowded things got. Playable but if you want 60fps.. might have to lower the graphics a lot.
    Still.. I would say I could play a lot of games on this rig if i so choose.
    One thing I would point out is that you are getting a 1tb 7200rpm hdd and 16gb ram and a 960gtx with 4gb DDR5 ram and a cpu that’s just been released Q1 of 2015. overall, you would spend a lot if you want to change the ram and hdd of a cheaper laptop.
