If you’re shopping for a budget gaming laptop, then take a look at the brand new ASUS X570. It is a slim and light high-performance laptop that is equipped with AMD’s Ryzen mobile processor while equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 GPU too.
With a rather minimalist design, the X570 comes with a Reaper Black finish accented by Lightning Blue edges. Its 21.9mm profile and overall weight of 1.9kg makes it one of the lightest high-performance laptops available.

Do take note of the RAM and storage options of the ASUS X570. It only comes with 4GB of RAM and another extra RAM slot available for upgrade. This extra slot can only support up to 8GB of RAM, making it a total of 12GB at most, unless you remove the existing 4GB RAM too.
As for the storage, it comes with a 1TB SATA III HDD which we recommend to upgrade to an SSD. From what we found out, it does have an M.2 SSD for upgrade as well.
For the price of RM2,899, the ASUS X570 does seem like a really good deal on paper.
