Republic of Gamers (ROG) – once you have one of these, you become part of a community of game lovers! This beast is specifically designed to give you an unparalleled experience. This is the (slightly) lighter-spec sibling of the Asus ROG G752VL-GC169T, but there is no compromise on the epic gaming experience that you would expect from the ROG range.

ASUS has produced a premium-gaming-monster machine that is able to handle demanding of games. It gives you the power to take control of your destiny, introducing the world’s first anti-ghosting backlit keyboard! This means that “your commands are instantaneously and correctly interpreted – even if you hit up to 30 keys simultaneously. And with more macro keys at your disposal, everything you need is at your fingertips.”
