  4. MLG dhiLLoN on April 10, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    Waiting for asus A15 Ryzen 5 with 3060

  5. Jay K on April 10, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    Notice that these are paid advertisements never buy a MSI laptop ever it’s a piece of crap wasted 3k on one right after the warranty expired 1 year from purchase

  6. XRay Plays on April 10, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    Lots of the asus laptops I want have small screens big no no for me

  7. Damsel Gaga on April 10, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    *Can somebody suggest me what laptop do I have to buy when I’m using Lumion, Revit, AutoCAD and Premiere Pro?*

    Your suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

  8. Jonathan Shivel on April 10, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    Help me buy a laptop, I’m going crazy trying to pick

  9. Fabian Henrich on April 10, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    Oh no but what about the only 8 Pcie lanes of the Ryzen 5000 CPUs. A 3080 will be bottlenecked. Blah blah. Now the classic market manipulation of Intel and Nvidia gets crystal clear with the Ryzen 4000 and its pairing only with the RTX 2060 last year.

  10. Hudson Animations on April 10, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    I love the g15 ga503

  11. Tony on April 10, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    the best laptops we will never be able to get our hands on because they are unicorns * 🙁 at least the 3080’s anyway..

  12. Kevin Hill on April 10, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    me, thinking ill ever be able to afford these laptops for the next 7 years

  13. Usman A.K on April 10, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    So no point in buying an RTX 3060 powered laptop!
    I’ll be limited by 6gb vram

  14. little 1 on April 10, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    Wers dell?

  15. Mariano Tusa on April 10, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    Scar 17 or ge76.. ? Choose please!

  16. XRay Plays on April 10, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    Human malware lmao

  17. Allan Weisser on April 10, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Mi thought is that having in mind that Intel’s i7 is from past gen and AMD is the latest, plus that the core i7 10750h has 6 cores instead Ryzen’s 5800h 8 cores, the difference in FPS count in games is not actually too much (like 4 – 6 FPS), so it seems that the hype of the AMD’s processors in laptops is bigger than its shoes. Intel is doing it actually pretty damn good. Lastly, some people go for AMD’s R7 5800h + RTX3070 (tgp 90W) "because of the greeeeeat AMD’s beast" instead Intel’s i7s 10th gen + RTX3070 (tgp 125W), thinking they’ll get more FPS but in reality, it’s much better an i7 10th gen with a MAX-P RTX in terms of FPS. Sure! for multicore tasks and workstation could be better the 5X00’s, but you are buying a GAMING laptop isn’t?

  18. Fierce Squirrel on April 10, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    I hope asus puts a webcam in their new models….

  19. Renovatio2142 on April 10, 2021 at 9:44 pm

  20. Jose Lopez on April 10, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    What’s a good gaming laptop to play STAR CITIZEN ?..

  21. Sunil Gopal on April 10, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    The best is yet to come with AMD Ryzen 5900 HX + RDNA 2 GPUs!! so everyone.. please hold on! 🙂

  22. Dani Vu on April 10, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    Damn, I wonder if Asus will release g16 sometimes in the future

  23. emotional blackmail on April 10, 2021 at 9:46 pm

  24. Kevin Carter on April 10, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Jarrod plays music in the background… His camera lens: "WHATS THAT MELODY?!" iykyk haha

  25. BrennonMitchell on April 10, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    Razer is no longer keeping up. They better start moving to amd and let intel rot.

  26. Kanha on April 10, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Asus ROG Strix G17 Laptop AMD Octa Core Ryzen 7 5800H NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 16GB 1TB SSD Windows 10 Home Basic – G713QR-HG064TS
    Is this is good for gaming?

  27. soulsteela01 on April 10, 2021 at 9:50 pm

    You’re saying, asus change the thermals on a15? When did that happen, and if I buy it now, will I get the improved version?

  28. Miko Djako on April 10, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    Asus SCAR 17, Ryzen 9 5k, 300hz screen, RTX 3080 – this one is the best by my opinion

  29. Febin Madhav on April 10, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    Which is the laptop on your table ?‼

  30. Jarrod'sTech on April 10, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    Just to be clear, this isn’t a “these are models you should buy” video, I’m just recapping the gaming laptops that I thought were interesting and why during CES 2021.

  31. Avi B on April 10, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Meanwhile, Omen here is collecting gamer gametes to transcend humanity.

  32. George La Manna on April 10, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    What about the legion 5 pro? Seems too good to be true

  33. Patrick Stoute on April 10, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    Help me out here.. do you have another channel? Like a D2 one? Btw what do you think about embargo review issues?

  34. Luo Zheng on April 10, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    with pandemic am trying to look for a cheap($400-$500) laptop that can handle esports games like league or valorant at 1080p with 1% low atleast 60fps above.

  35. Chungus Khan on April 10, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    The scar 15 is hands down the sexiest laptop as of right now.

  36. John on April 10, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    The Ge76 w/ 3080 just tested as the fastest laptop currently out, that includes everything from Asus, Alienware, Acer, Dell, and HP. It’s 8% faster than the next best thing, and only beat in cooling by the new 15" Asus Duo, which costs nearly $1000 more than the Msi.

  37. Max on April 10, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    im looking to buy my first gaming laptop with my stim check, i want to spend about 1 grand of it, i dont care about the keyboard, speakers, touchpad (ill be using separate ones), fan noise or build quality (cause im going to be careful with it and use a big fan underneath anyways) i just want it to be VR capable and possibly have a bigger screen then normal, some decent space and a good battery and gc and cpu, it can have only 8gb ram as long as its upgradable later for down the road to add another 8. i was wondering if you had a suggestion knowing all that or anyone else for that matter? thanks for the vid.

  38. LoudAfterRiot Gaming on April 10, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    I wish TUF was amd they could of made it even more affordable or more powerful with the same $1600 price tag (I’m rounding up tax)

  39. Akshay Tonge on April 10, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    best budget laptop 2021 plz?

  40. Bibek on April 10, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    Legion 7 16in and the new G15, are the 2 beauties that are on my watchlist for an upgrade. I have owned Ideapad y700 for 6yrs so it’s about time.

  41. Charles Schwab on April 10, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    I just wanna see a somewhat powerful rig with a sleek professional futuristic design.

  42. Ash Lord on April 10, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    Insomnium T-Shirt = Instant Like

  43. Wissam Sidki on April 10, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    So are the older models gonna drop in price? Lol

  44. Ahmad Hazeem on April 10, 2021 at 10:12 pm
