ASUS ROG 17.3” Touchscreen Gaming Laptop
Part of ASUS’s Republic of Gamers line, this laptop ensures that video-game enthusiasts get the most out of contemporary games with cutting-edge graphics. Stuttering frame rates and on-screen lag are a thing of the past thanks to a dedicated video card and a whopping 24GB of RAM, and the Full HD display renders everything in vivid detail.
Work and Play in Full High Definition
From full-length films to funny video clips, virtually everything you see on this computer’s display renders in crisp, lifelike detail. Its 1080p Full HD resolution is the same as that of many big-screen HDTVs, fitting the same amount of pixels—just more than 2 million—into a smaller space, so even everyday websites appear sharp and realistic. In addition to heightening the impact of streaming shows, video games, and other visual media, Full HD resolution makes photos pop and can help you get a more accurate look at potential online purchases.
Touchscreen Display: Tablet-Like Control
Zoom in on photos, jump to the next story on news apps, or play a mobile game on a bigger screen—all without using the keyboard or touchpad. A touchscreen display expands your control, giving you more ways to interact with apps and programs that support touch gestures. For more traditional tasks, such as answering emails, you can move back to the keyboard at any time.
Hybrid Drive: Fast Loading, Efficient Storage
Solid-state drives (SSDs) boot computers and load files quickly, but typically offer little storage. Traditional hard-disk drives (HDDs) can store huge files, but run slower. A hybrid drive gives you the best of both formats: its solid-state portion quickly loads startup files to rapidly boot the computer, and its hard-drive portion stores larger programs and files, such as games and movies. This configuration is not only faster, but also more energy efficient.
Dual-Band WiFi: Play and Stream Without Lag
If you play a lot of data-intensive online games or stream online video for hours on end, dual-band WiFi ensures you can connect to the fastest available network. While most internet networks operate on the congested 2.4GHz band, dual-band WiFi also lets you connect to networks operating on the more modern 5GHz band, which provides more bandwidth for faster app downloads and smoother video streams.

ASUS was named for Pegasus, a symbol of wisdom and knowledge in Greek mythology. In addition to these two tenets, the company mirrors the winged horse in another significant respect: both entities have taken part in a series of epic journeys.
ASUS notebooks have lived on the MIR Space Station. They were the first to work in the thin, icy air atop Mount Everest. As fireworks exploded over the opening ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics in 2008, ASUS servers directed the show. ASUS motherboards have probably even found their way directly into your home or office, as they’re present in one of every three computers and one in every two pizza delivery men. That’s a lot of ground for the Taiwanese company to cover in less than three decades.
