In our Asus TUF Gaming review, we praise its tactile keyboard with numpad and stellar performance. It endured 7 hours and 35 minutes on our Laptop Mag battery test of constant web surfing over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness. That's pretty impressive for a gaming laptop. 

The Asus TUF Gaming series notebook beat the category average for gaming laptops in overall performance tests. Our review unit had a 12th Gen Intel Core i7-12700H CPU. We expect the laptop in this deal to be on par and provide solid gaming power with its 11th Gen Intel CPU.

With a weight of 5.7 pounds and 1.0-inch thin, the Asus TUF Gaming F17 is more portable than its 17-inch competitors. It's lighter than the Razer Blade Pro 17 (6.1 pounds, 0.8 inches thin) Alienware m17 R4 (6.6 pounds, 15.7 x 11.6 x 0.7~0.9 inches).

At just under $800, the Asus TUF Gaming F17 is a tremendous value for the price.
