ASUS K570UD Intel i5 GTX 1050 Laptop

For a laptop that can switch from “work” to “play” mode in just a click of a button, you really can’t do better than the ASUS VivoBook. Lightweight, slim and equipped with Windows 10, it’s ideal for everyday use. More importantly, with its 1080p FHD WideView display, Intel Core i5-8250U processor and top-of-the-range Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050, it’s even more ideal for gaming… which, let’s face it, is really why we’re here. (Gaming rules, work drools, amirite?)

For those who love multiplayer or online gaming, the ASUS VivoBook is an even sexier prospect. Equipped with dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi (for speeds that are six times faster than 802.11n), you can be online in the blink of an eye, brutally attacking strangers on PUBG or planting pumpkins with friends on Stardew Valley. Who could want more?

ASUS TUF FX505DY RX560X Gaming Laptop

There’s really only one appropriate word in the English dictionary to describe this beast: HARDCORE (capitals intended). With a strong, armour-like chassis and powerful features to boot, every gaming experience on the ASUS TUF is one to remember. Highlights include its IPS-level panel, which offers an ultrafast refresh rate and minimal motion blur (up to 144Hz on some configurations), an AMD Radeon Vega RX560X 4GB graphics card, Full HD display and AMD Ryzen 5 3550H quad core processor, which can reach up to 3.7GHz on turbo boost. Oof.

The ASUS TUF has some serious “wow” factor, and if you’re a little clumsy (see: prone to jumping out of your skin during horror games, sending everything around you flying across the room), it’s an even better choice. Having undergone US military tests including shock force, high altitude and vibration testing, this laptop is a real toughie, and doesn’t go down without a fight. Time to boot up The Evil Within 2.
