These gaming laptops are made even more affordable now! The variant with the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB is especially enticing, as it offers great performance with a very reasonable price tag.

Pokdepinion: Could this be part of the benefits ASUS gleaned from the GeForce Partners Program? Or are they just clearing off older 7th Gen hardware to make way for the imminent 8th Gen Intel hexa-core CPUs? Regardless, these laptops are great value for money now!
