ASUS is releasing an $1700 SKT T1 laptop in 2018

There is no optical drive but Asus hasn’t missed out on any of the connectivity options which matter such as Ethernet HDMI USB 3.0 USB Type-C 3.5mm jack and has a SD card slot

Asus' new ROG gaming PC sports an 8th-gen Intel 6-core CPU and a neat storage trick

The Hero Edition laptop is definitely merchandise meant for SKT T1 fans, because it also comes with an SKT jersey, mousepad, and posters of all the team members.

The laptop has 16 GB of memory, a 256 GB NVMe boot drive, and a 1 TB 5400 RPM hard drive for bulk storage.

As you might expect from one of the top League of Legends teams, the ROG Strix SKT T1 Hero Edition is optimised for multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) gaming. Powering the device is a factory-overclocked Core i7-7820HK processor which is up to 4.3 GHz from the factory, and GeForce GTX 1080 graphics with a maximum boost clock of 1974 MHz.

At CES 2018, the Taiwanese computer manufacturer Asus has tried to address the issue with a new accessory which they like to call Bezel-free Kit.

Two new gaming laptops were featured by Asus ROG; the ROG Strix SKT T1 Hero Edition and the ROG G703. It will be available Q1 2018 with a price announced upon launch. The light show runs in concert with Asus' Aura Sync illumination control utility so buyers can coordinate the blinkenlights on the GL12 with the diodes in their Asus ROG gaming headsets and monitors. A more practical element of the design is the expansion bay and eSports-ready easy-swap SSD tray. You can pick up the ROG G703 right now starting at $3499.

The key was Ben Roethlisberger's meltdown with five interceptions. "Once we got in the dance, we didn't want to be one and done". Bortles, who was 6 of 15 for 33 yards in the first half, also was Jacksonville's leading rusher with three carries for 35 yards.

The new Strix Flare from ROG combines a mixture of Cherry MX RGB switches, with funky Auraenabled RGB backlighting and a driver that cloaks the keyboard to stop games blocking your important macros. It also has a bank of media keys - including a dedicated volume wheel - and a detachable wrist rest. Connecting the displays via the long lens strips at that angle allows light to be refracted across the area that would house the screens' bezels, and the image from the connecting monitors to be blended together to create the illusion of a bezel-less, seamless screen.

Pricing for the ROG Strix Flare, ROG Aura Terminal, ROG Spotlight, and ROG Bezel-free Kit will be announced at launch.

Rounding out Asus' new stuff is the ROG Spotlight, an accessory that looks like a webcam but instead projects Asus' ROG logo onto a wall or other surface.

This accessory lets players with multiple-monitor setups to visually eliminate the gaps where their displays connect, giving your setup the appearance of being one long, continuous monitor. It features a magnetic base for secure attachment to any metal surfaces and provides 360 degrees of adjustment.
