Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 review: 360Hz of gaming goodness

The Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 is a compact gaming laptop with some serious punch and some awesome style too. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
That style includes swappable customisable plates for the back of the laptop. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Download the instructions and you can 3D print your own panels to add your own design to this laptop (image credit: Pocket-lint)
It's not just 3D printing or fancy accents that make the Scar 17 stand out, but also things like the underside light bar and glowing bezel lighting. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The ROG logo on the lid and the keyboard too are Aura sync capable. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The underside light bar is the most satisfying aspect of the design in our mind. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
This lighting bar adds a satisfying and stylish glow to your gaming space. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Of course, packing a 3000-series graphics card and some serious specs under the hood, the Scar 17 is great for gaming too. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
With as much as a 360Hz refresh rate screen, you can get your game on in glorious fashion with this laptop. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Scar 17 also sports an optical-mechanical keyboard, for a more satisfying gaming experience. And clever things like larger directional arrows too. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
We managed to crank out some high frame rates and satisfying gaming sessions on this machine and really enjoyed the results. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
All told, the Strix Scar 17 is a fantastic gaming machine that games as well as it looks. Great fun, if you can stomach the price tag. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
