Back in 2020, the Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA706IU with AMD Ryzen 7 4800H and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti visited our labs for an in-depth review that unveiled an excellent gaming laptop with a low-budget price. Two years later, the FA707RM-ES73 launched with updated hardware including the AMD Ryzen 7 6800H processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics.
On Amazon, the list price of the configuration mentioned above, which also packs 16 GB DDR5-4800 memory and a 512 GB PCIe SSD, is US$1,399.99. Thankfully, the ongoing 20% discount takes it down to a more wallet-friendly value of US$1,115. While these prices might seem a bit high for the given hardware specs, any potential buyer should also keep in mind the fact that this is a MIL-STD-810H-certified laptop.

The list includes NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 6 GB GDDR6 graphics with up to 140 W and Dynamic Boost, a MUX Switch, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as 4 X USB 3.0 ports and a HDMI 2.0b port.
The Asus TUF Gaming A17 FA707RM-ES73 comes with Windows 11 Home preinstalled and is covered by a limited warranty of two years from the date of purchase for European customers, but only one year for US-based buyers.
