Asus is a respected brand when it comes to computing, so we’re always keen to hear about deals on its gaming laptops. We gave this particular laptop a 6/10 score, albeit at a significantly higher price of £980. It’s also worth noting that we praised some of the key features, including its solid 1080p gaming pace and fast, versatile Core i7 processor.

What we said
“This laptop is designed to deliver 1080p gaming for less than £1,000, and it generally succeeds at this,” reads our review’s verdict. However, it’s worth noting that the laptop's SSD and screen are both less than impressive. Still, it’s important to remember that this deal knocks £230 off our original review price.

How good a deal is this?
This deal is pretty impressive, considering how expensive gaming laptops usually are. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M featured in the Asus notebook is an impressive, tried-and-tested mobile GPU, and the £150 saving is not to be scoffed at.
Better still, we tested this particular laptop at a review price that was £230 more than today’s deal, so there’s good reason to consider the GL552VW.
