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.
