    Weird to see an image of an ASUS TUF model but no listing. And no ROG Strix G513/Strix 15? The pricepoint of the Ryzen models shame these things I'm seeing. I sense bias.

    Who buys the 3050 4GB models? You're better off with a 2060 6GB laptop for $700.

    And where exactly would you find a 2060 laptop for $700? At $700, you're normally seeing going to find a 1650.
