However, if you need to travel, then your game might have to be put on hold, so why not bring a gaming notebook with you? That happens to be rather heavy most of the time, and ASUS hopes to turn the tide around by announcing the ASUS G550JK.

Being the latest model to join up with the rest of the Republic of Gamers product rage, the ASUS G550JK notebook took part in the “highest elevation LAN party” world record attempt on top of Mt. Elbert, which so happens to be the highest peak in the Rocky Mountains at a majestic 14,440 feet in height.

The ASUS ASUS G550JK is no slouch when it comes to performance, thanks to its hardware that comprises of a 4th generation Intel Core i7 4710HQ processor, 8GB RAM, a 2GB GeForce GTX 850M graphics card with overclocking capability, measuring 15.1” x 10.0” x 1.1” while tipping the scale at 5.3 lbs. Expect the ASUS G550JK to be priced from $1,099. [Press Release]
