The Amazon Big Spring Sale is plowing forward at warp speed. If you’re shopping for a gaming laptop but have been hesitant to buy one, you can stop waiting and get this budget gaming rig right now. 

For a limited time, you can get the ASUS ROG Strix G15 for just $749 at Amazon. It's close to the lowest price this laptop has ever been listed for, and it’s only a few dollars more than the all-time low, which was $731. This is an absolute steal for a laptop with these kinds of specs.

The RTX 3050 is a powerful GPU with 4GB of dedicated video memory. The display’s speedy 1080p 144Hz refresh rate will make your games look smooth. The display's Adaptive-Sync technology will also help ensure that games look good with no screen tearing. There’s also an MUX Switch, which increases laptop gaming performance by routing frames directly to the display instead of through the integrated GPU. 

ASUS also includes an AMD Ryzen 7 6800HS processor that should also deliver solid gaming performance. It’s not a top-of-the-line processor, but if you buy it on a laptop for $750, it should exceed your performance expectations. There’s also 8GB of DDR5-4800MHz memory and a 512GB SSD that’ll let you keep plenty of games installed and ready to play at a moment’s notice.

Is a gaming laptop even ready for games if it doesn’t have colored lights? Thankfully, ASUS included plenty of lights with customizations. These won’t make you better at your favorite games, but they will be pleasing to the eyes while you snipe (and get sniped), which is a nice bonus.

As you might expect, it comes with Windows 11 installed, so you can run all the PC games on Steam and other platforms. While SteamOS certainly has its benefits, there’s nothing like the flexibility to play all the games that Windows 11 offers. 

Wi-Fi speed is important when gaming on the go, and the ASUS ROG Strix G15 supports Wi-Fi 6E, letting you get maximum speeds when connected to a router that supports it.

    What a great computer it's going to need a new HDD and a bit more Ram would be nice. Hopefully you have an External NVME SSD enclosure of sorts unless it has an extra expansion port, to add or clone your operating system.
