ASUS is a popular PC and gaming brand with a range of notebooks, gaming gear, graphics cards, motherboards, and more. There’s something for everyone.
ASUS has a wide range of consumer laptops that are both affordable and powerful. Entry level laptops includes theChromebook line-up, which offers a space-saving compact design, oftentimes with 2-in-1 laptop and tablet functionality. Chromebooks are perfect for younger children or those wanting a simpler computer experience. However, be aware that Chromebooks are a bit different from your standard laptop. Since it runs on Chrome OS, all the applications you want have to be downloaded from the Google Play Store. Just keep this in mind if you are planning to download web-based apps or legacy applications. However, since there are no built-in apps (you know, the ones nobody ever uses), the Chrome OS is much faster. If you want a full comparison of Chrome vs Windows or Mac, check out this review here.
ASUS also offers a range of productivity laptops, like the Vivobook or the X515/D515 range. Although supply-chain disruptions have reduced the levels of available stock in Australia, they are regular best-sellers. The X515 offers a standard mid-level laptop (Intel i5 11th Gen CPU, 8GB Memory, 256GB SSD Storage, and Windows 10) for under $1000! By contrast, the comparable MacBook Air starts at $1499. The Vivobooks offer an even better specification to price ratio, with many models offering 17-inch screens! For shoppers looking for a large screen, relatively lightweight model, and business-class specifications, the Vivobook range is the place to go.
ASUS Gaming Laptops
Gaming laptops are the bread and butter of ASUS’ line-up. Forming one of the best-selling gaming notebook line-ups, there is no shortage of precision and power. ASUS has two main gaming product lines: TUF Gaming and Republic of Gamers (ROG).
TUF Gaming - Next Level Gaming
The TUF Gaming lineup offers durable laptops with high quality specs like impressive refresh rates and the latest components for affordable prices. With the majority of available models running between $1500 and $2600, TUF laptops are perfect for new gamers or budget gamers looking for a best-selling, high-quality product. At Rosman Computers, we are partners with ASUS and stock the latest models. To check out the laptops we have available now, have a look here. If you still aren’t sure if the TUF lineup is for you, check out this review by pcgmer.com, where they highlight the affordability, versatility, and top-notch components.
ROG Republic of Gamers - Powerful. Portable. Precise.
The ROG lineup is among the most powerful gaming laptops in existence. ASUS regularly tops the charts for speed, aesthetics, power, and everything else you could want in a gaming laptop. Boasting high quality screens, efficient cooling, and features like the second screen on the Zephyrus Duo 15 SE that allow for high levels of control and extra viewing space. In addition to the base ROG series, ASUS offers the ROG Zephyrus and the ROG Strix, both of which are absolute gaming powerhouses. These laptops range from $1700 to $6000, so there is a wide variety of specifications to allow you to choose the best fit for you. Another great feature of ASUS gaming laptops is the ability to upgrade the internal components: ASUS permits end users to upgrade components like the RAM or SSD, so long as the components are of valid, high-quality and the upgrade is performed by a professional. This allows customers to build the laptop of their dreams without compromise. PC Mag’s review of the ROG Zephyrus G14 was nothing short of stellar. This laptop boasts the incredible Ryzen 9 5900HS and the highly sought-after 3000-series GPU (3060). Customers have nothing but great things to say about the ROG laptops, so you’re essentially guaranteed to fall in love with it.
ASUS Graphics Cards/GPUs
Graphics cards. If you haven’t heard about the latest 3000-series release, you’ll need a reality check. NVIDIA announced the release of their highly anticipated RTX 3000-series (RTX 3060, RTX 3070, RTX 3080, RTX 3090, and Ti editions) in 2020. AMD announced the release of their latest Radeon-6000 series GPUs around the same time. Due to supply chain disruptions, the release was more of a soft launch, with stock trickling in and demand higher than ever to get ahold of these unbelievably powerful cards. The 3000-series and 6000-series line-ups have expanded substantially; there is no shortage of options to sift through. It can be tricky, but understanding what games you want to play, considering your current build setup, and comparing to your old card will help guide your decision. Many people are dying to upgrade their RTX 1650 to an RTX 3080 - but keep in mind, the entire 3000-series lineup has made incredible power and efficiency improvements, so if the RTX 3060 is the only card available, we recommend considering it!
ASUS has over 40 GPUs available with Rosman Computers. By far the most popular is the ASUS Strix range. Powered by NVIDIA’s GeForce technology, these graphics cards pack an unbelievable punch (and they look pretty cool too). The Strix GPU comes in black or white, so you can match the colour to your build. With anywhere from 10GB to 24GB of VRAM, these cards are guaranteed to redefine your gaming experience. Although it requires more power than previous generations, these cards are nothing short of amazing, highly rated by all users, and make high-demand gaming easier than ever. If you are in need of a new power supply unit for your new graphics card, check out the latest on our website.
