The Asus ROG Strix Scar II takes aim at first person shooter (FPS) gamers, sporting a 144Hz display with a 3ms response time. Other specs include an Intel 8th generation Coffee Lake Core i7 processor, up to 32GB RAM and discrete graphics using Nvidia's GTX 1070. There's also a similar ROG Strix Hero II meant for multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) players, with the difference being the keyboard layout -- the Hero II has QWER highlighted instead.
With highlighted WASD keys, the Scar II is definitely meant for FPS gamers.
The keyboard is backlit and can be customized to your favorite colors.
You probably won't use the trackpack for gaming, so it's smaller compared to other laptops.
The single USB port on the right feels like it's meant for your gaming mouse.
The Scar II's screen is narrower than last year's model.
What's a gaming laptop without bling lights?
The rear cover features a cut out so that it doesn't block the air vents that keep the laptop cool.
The beautiful brushed metal back is gorgeous.
