Asus G550JK is the latest gaming laptop that is now available in the United States. It is the latest member of the Republic of Gamers family and more compact version of the Asus G750, another gaming notebook from the company. Both models are very similar as both come with brushed aluminum bodies.
As expected the Asus G550JK specifications are top notch. You get the latest Intel Core i5 4200H or i7 4700HQ processor that is backed by up to 16 gigabytes of DDR3 RAM. Screen size is 15.6 inches and it is available with either HD or Full HD resolution.
For storage you get either 750GB or 1TB HDD. Of course the main feature of a gaming laptop under 1000 dollars is its GPU and Asus does not disappoints us in G550JK. You get Nvidia GeForce GTX 850M with 2 or 4 GB of DDR3 onboard. Other specs include Gigabit Ethernet LAN, 3 USB 3.0 ports, HDMI digital video outputs and Intel WiDi (Wireless Display) for wireless video streaming.
