[Canada Computers] ASUS TUF Gaming Notebook 15.6'' FHD AMD Ryzen 5 4600H GTX 1650, 8GB DDR4, 512GB SSD - $899 - preorder only

Available for pre-order here, without having to go in store: https://www.cendirect.com/main_en/tech- ... 61354.html

Good specs, will be a bit heavy, and the screen might suck.

But otherwise, incredible Ryzen 4000 CPU, much faster than the 15W 4500U cpu that will be used in lighter notebooks.

Available for instore pre-orders only. Probably don't buy anything else in this price range for a gaming laptop.

Huge Caveat is the temporary returns policy at Canada Computers, in case you do find stock:

Temporary Return & Exchange Policy

Ontario and British Columbia Return & Exchange Policy
All purchases made on April 5th, 2020 and onwards, will be considered final sale.
Defective items may be exchanged within 15 days from date of purchase through contactless curbside exchange.

Keep in mind the screen is shit. As per Newegg

LCD Features 60 Hz, 200 nits, NTSC: 45%, Anti-Glare.
Edit: review of the 166Ti version: https://www.ultrabookreview.com/36432-a ... iu-review/
The 4600H is mostly within 10-15% of the full-power Ryzen 7 4800H processor and way ahead of many of the existing Intel mainstream competition

I've been looking for a purchase option for this without any luck until now, so thanks for posting this.

Have you pre-ordered this in store? If so, what does that process look like? I can't tell from their website if their stores are open or not. Any indication on delivery date?

Edit: It looks like stores in BC are open: https://www.canadacomputers.com/covid_19.php

I was interested and called in. They have no idea on ETA if you place an order in store. They are coming from Taiwan/China.

I haven't, but I'm waiting for them to go on sale around thanksgiving. Still an incredible deal for $899. Here's a review of the higher priced laptop: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digi ... top-review

This 17" model with 4800H and 1660Ti is available in stores for $1500: https://www.canadacomputers.com/product ... _id=165762

So I know nothing about gaming laptops/PCs. Would it be worth it to get this mainly to play PC games on my Oculus Quest? My desktop as it is, is way too old. I have a Dell XPS 13 which is more of an ultrabook and can't gaming. I really want to play Halflife Alyx! Would this be a good idea or should I just build a gaming PC?

The 1650 is weak for VR. I'd get the 1660Ti or 2060 models for $1500.

Desktop parts are a little pricier right now because of Covid19, and the 4600H and 4800H CPUs in the new laptops are pretty incredible and close to desktop Ryzen performance: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/guide/

Preorder only.

Mind you, they don't have free shipping, so unsure what the total cost comparison will be.
Comes for $13 for most provinces and $33 for the territories. So, about the same, but you don't have to go in-store to place an order.

It's definitely good enough for most games on 1080p medium:

I don't know when the mobile Ampere will come out, or when they'll be integrated into actual laptops. Could be a year or more.

Better build quality and lighter and better screen on the Yoga, and more RAM.
Thnx a lot, searching for a sub 1000 one.
