Not content with revealing more dedicated gaming hardware at this year's CES, ASUS have also announced a trio of new premium gaming monitors.

First up, there's the Strix XG438Q. It's a 43-inch 4K monitor with Freesync 2 and HDR support, a 120Hz refresh rate, 90% DCI-P3 coverage, VESA DisplayHDR 600 compliance, ASUS GameFast Input tech plus PiP and PbP modes.

Then, there's the Srix XG49VQ. It's a 49-inch super ultra wide display with a 144Hz refresh rate, 90% DCI-P3 coverage, VESA DisplayHDR 400 compliance and support for up to 3 sources at the same time. Compared to the XG438Q, it loses the FreeSync but gains a higher refresh rate.

Lastly, there's the Strix XG32VQR. The Strix XG32VQR is a 32-inch curved monitor with a 144Hz refresh rate, 94% DCI-P3 coverage and VESA DisplayHDR 400 compliance.

Expect the XG49VQ, XG32VQ  and XG438Q to be available in Australia and New Zealand from the second quarter of 2019. No pricing has been announced as of yet.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
