out of stock ASUS ROG Strix SCAR II GL704GW-EV045T 17.3in FHD 144hz i7-8750H RTX2070 Laptop $2,079.20 @ Sydneytec eBay


This is the cheapest price I have seen so far for this laptop. The 17.3 inch Scar III model is yet to come by this month or next month however you save aprox 1000$ with this one.

The only differences that I know of between Scar II and Scar III are:

    1. Scar III has latest i7 9750h where as Scar II comes with last gen i7 8750h (i7 9750h is aprox 5% to 6% better than the previous gen is it worth $1000 more??)
    2. Scar III has some design changes and ASUS added a keystone feature (NFC Drive to save customization profile and Encrypted Drive to store sensitive data)

    Looks like an absolute beast. 8gb ram seems a bit low though.


      I agree. I pulled the trigger on this one though because that was the cheapest RTX2070 laptop available for this price. Definitely I will upgrade the Ram to either 16Gb or 32 GB as soon as I get it.

      Pulled the trigger +1 … for this price , this 144mhz monitor and the RTX0270

      Surely will be upgrading the ram to 16g and maybe an 1TB nvme SSD

    Great deal for a 2070. Easy to upgrade ram if you need it.

    Just double check those ports.

    I initially bought the GL531GT from Scorptec which advertised USB-C and at least one USB-A gen 2 port. This was on shelf talkers and various websites. It was $1799 for that model.

    It had neither ports in the end.

    Apparently ASUS aren't always reliable with the specs they send out on pre-order devices.

    The design of the thing is great! The keys and independent buttons below the trackpad were awesome.

    However I took it back and opted for Metabox instead. For an extra $543 I was able to get an i7 9750, 32gb of Ram, 3 years warranty, upgraded Wifi and a 2060 (non max-q, which can perform better than a max-q 2070 in some tasks).

    Plus the ports I need including 2 USB-C as well as in glass fingerprint scanner and built in webcam.


      This does not have Max-Q RTX2070 though. I have used Asus Branded laptops before so I can vouch for the quality and durability of their products. Not sure about Metabox since I have never used it before. And the 1799$ model must have been Gtx1070 or Rtx2060 model, I have been researching on this laptop, keeping an eye on the prices from different retailers since few months now and has never seen RTX2070 model gone down below 2k. I could be wrong :)


        The $1799 was a GTX1660 and i7 8750h, a long way from an RTX2060.

        If that's a non max-q for under 2k that's great! A non max-q 2070 will beat a 2060. For $200 above the ASUS I initially bought it's well worth it. Though you'd need to add RAM desperately. 8gb is a joke. Might as well call it $2200ish.

        My point is though; be careful with what ASUS advertise. Make sure it has those ports, a non Max-Q etc. Because I felt like a guinea pig last time.

        Their build quality is nice. Amazing design (I love the lighting, great screen, great keys and touchpad). But yeah - double check you're getting what's advertised.


          You are getting seriously ripped off if you are paying 120 for 8gig. You can get it for less than half that. So don't call it 2200.

    This looks great, been looking for a bigger screen laptop to replace my PC, but too pricey for me.
    Anyone recommend another 17”+ laptop at better price?
    Don’t need it to be a gaming laptop.


    Thanks, the HP looks good. The Asus negative review has put me off it.
    Do most laptops just come with 1 year warranty?

      Personally I had not so great experience with HP. If I were you I would just stay away from HP in general. I never had issues with Asus Branded laptops but HP has been a nightmare for me. I had few HP tablets and 2 HP laptops in the past they all broke after warranty expired. The links that I posted earlier (as a reply) was just a quick search but spend a little more get any other brand than HP rest is up to you. I guess MSI comes with 2 years of warranty.

      HP Business laptops OK. End consumer HP I wouldn't touch.


      Lenovo L340 that was posted recently will be just fine.


    Great deal
    Most importantly it has 6 cores same as 9750h
    Can someone inform if the 8750h vs 9750h difference in performance

    • +1 vote

      As I mentioned in the post only 5% to 6% increase in performance overall, if you are interested in detail comparisons please visit the website:


      It is up to you if you want to spend extra $ for i7 9750h. Dell is having a great g7 model on sale with latest processor, but with extra $$ on top however dell g7 comes with RTX2070 Max Q version. It is up to you if you want to compromise on GPU or CPU. I personally prefer full RTX2070 with i7 8750h rather than having i7 9750h with Max-Q GPU.
