[B&H Photo Video] 2021 ASUS 15.6" ROG Strix G15 [AMD 5900hx, RTX 3070 , 300 hz, 16GB DDR4, 1TB NVME] - $1799USD + tax (pre-order)

Pre-order now available. Stock issues ongoing, but US retailers have been shipping much sooner than Canadian counterparts.

Comes out to $2500 CAD, taxes in (no additional duties/fees). Expected price in Canada will be $2500 before taxes.

This is a higher TDP 3070 - I believe the 130W. It's geared for gaming, designed accordingly as well. A bit chonkier but still reasonably portable.

Note that this does not come with a webcam. Deal breaker for some, in the age of Zoom.

It maybe important to know that mobile rtx 3 series cards are 20 - 30% slower than desktop versions. Thanks for posting

If anyone buys a laptop expecting to have desktop like performance... they have issues.

Please correct the title. The processor should be AMD 5900HX. AMD 5900X - desktop CPU.

I believe B&H charges upon preorder for shipments to international addresses (which we are). Lots of people found out the hard way on the B&H price error Asus monitor and were dinged on the fx rate.

They also learned that on the 5900x unlimited pre order debacle.
