Gaming notebooks have been notoriously expensive for beginners. ASUS, however, is breaking the budget barrier for gaming notebooks with the ASUS Gaming X560, one of the cheapest gaming notebooks with a GTX 1050 you can get for the money.

With a starting price of PhP 39,995, the ASUS Gaming X560 comes with up to an Intel Core i7 8550U processor, up to 16GB of RAM, and a 15.6-inch 1920 x 1080 display at 60Hz with Anti-Glare coating. The display also sports the brand’s NanoEdge display, which means that bezels are kept to a minimum to ensure proper immersion in games.

As we’ve said, it also comes with NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1050 4GB, which should be enough for the average gamer playing games such as DOTA 2, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Overwatch, and even PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS.
