Today we spotted a large discount on the Asus ROG Strix G18 gaming laptop that's now reduced to $2,099 at Best Buy. This is still a very high ticket price item, but you do get some impressive hardware in this large chassis. The 18-inch screen has a QHD resolution and a very fast 240Hz refresh rate - helping to power these specs are an Nvidia RTX 4080 GPU and an Intel Core i9-13980HX processor.
An alternative to either AMD or Nvidia on the GPU front, this AIB edition Acer Predator BiFrost Intel Arc A770 has a slight discount of $309 at Newegg. This GPU comes with 16GB of VRAM, and Intel has been delivering frequent driver updates that look to ever improve the performance of this GPU.
Pick up this last-generation AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU for just $189. Still, a solid performer if you want to put together a budget-build PC or even upgrade a previous AM4 system. With eight cores and 16 threads, this CPU is still highly capable of either productivity work or gaming.

The Asus ROG Strix G18 is not a great deal. Today at Best Buy still at $2,500. And especially with a paltry 16GB of DDR5 at 4800Mhz. Then lacking Windows 11 Pro and sporting a unspecified and small 1TB M2 which most likely will not be a Samsung 990. In my judgment the G18 is also not a real ‘Looker’ and taking my breath away as to the design of the enclosure. Like when I first met my blond, she had the right upholstered curves in all of the right places, excelled in her walk and talk and came with perfumed suggestions galore. If I ever had the cash for a luxury laptop like the G18 I would buy it next year around May-June when the 15th generation is looming and then probably be leaning more towards an Alienware M18 with better specs and looks for about $2,000.Reply
