€1194.99 instead of €1399.99. That’s literally just $200 more than an RTX 3060 Ti at market price right now. I would have compared the price of this Asus with a 3060, but they are almost impossible to find at the moment. We’re not going to dwell any longer, because unfortunately we all know it: if we want to equip ourselves with decent gear during this period of shortage without breaking the bank, we have to switch to laptops.
At the cost of a reduction in power compared to their competitors on a fixed PC, we gain portability and above all: availability. Especially since this Asus Dash TUF 516 is not equipped haphazardly. It has an 11th generation Intel Core i5, the 11300H which is 3.1 GHz. The RAM is 16 GB at 3200 MHz, so perfect for what you want to do with it: good gaming (and office automation if you have to work/go to class).
As often with these offers, you can run out of storage. To overcome this, it’s easy: tinker a bit to add an SSD to the existing one! Go below for a link to a quality product. In the meantime, we already have 512 GB in M.2 here, which may be enough for the less storage-hungry among us. For the rest, the 1TB Crucial reduced from €121 to €89 will be perfect!
For the rest, we are in the classic, but with nice surprises. For example, the 15.6-inch IPS panel is Full HD, but has a 144Hz resolution that will suit the most demanding gamers. It is equipped with many technologies such as: anti-glare, a 45% NTSC wide color gamut and Adaptive-Sync technology.
In short, here we have a powerful branded gaming laptop with an RTX 3060, at a reasonable price. Little more, it is already equipped with Windows 11, so no need to look for a key elsewhere!
