This laptop gets its "TUF" name from its military-grade toughness. It's been tested against drops, shakes, heat, cold, and humidity, so you know your laptop will get the job done even in difficult conditions.

The Asus TUF F15 weighs just over 5 pounds, and measures 0.96-inches thick. That means it’s portable enough to take with you on the go. The sleek bezels and RGB keyboard make this a stylish laptop, too.

However, as with most gaming laptops, you’re unlikely to get more than a couple hours of battery life out of this device if you keep it unplugged. Just keep a charger handy when you use it and you’ll be golden.
