Asus has finally introduced its latest range of gaming laptops in India. This is not the first time that the company has introduced such devices in the domestic market. It had earlier introduced the Asus ROG-G701 gaming laptops as well. The latest range includes the following models: the Republic of Gamers (ROG) FX503, the ROG Strix Hero Edition, besides the ROG Strix SCAR Edition as well as the ROG Strix GL503.

Given that such MMORPGs like Dota2 and Counter-Strike have gained so much popularity, it is not surprising that the Taiwanese major has decided to launch the new laptops.
