It also has a Pantone certified display at 144Hz IPS with G-Sync. Plus it has the ability to have 3 hard drives (2 x M.2 NVMe slots + 1 x 2.5inch Hard Drive). It also has I/O slots for days including the magical Thunderbolt 3 Port and even a really fast full-size SD card reader.

Price drop to 33K (R33000 rands) and I will sweeten the deal even more by including another 512 NVME SSD which would then bring this machine up to 2 TB of storage.
2 x 512GB SSD drives + 1TB HDD = 2TB storage in this machine, you could always swap out for more if you wish ;)

Did I forget to mention that it has a full RGB keyboard, individually controlled keys and even dedicated programmable macro keys on the side!
O and even a num pad for the number crunchers.

Here is a picture of this machine's internals (The one to the left). Check out all those heatpipes, it can control its temperature pretty well and has built-in fan control software.
Also, this laptop is extremely easy to access the RAM memory modules and the Hard Drives for any upgrades you might want to do in the future as opposed to my new laptop on the right which has its RAM modules on the other side of the motherboard.

Bump still available.

Can you compute? Check out all those logical CPU processors on this thing. It also has the ability to overclock to 4+GHZ out of the box with its Aorus command center software. GPU can even be overclocked if seek more performance.

Price Drop R28000

It's a great powerful laptop with lots of memory upgrade options and ports for days. The SD card reader is also super fast and this is great for content editors.

Friendly bump.

From all the laptops I see on sale here, this is probably still the most powerful laptop on sale here for now.
Still in very good condition with no scratches, just like new and come with Windows 10 Pro that is ready to be set up as if new.

Dropping the price to R25K.
It comes with the standard 512GB NVME SSD + 1 TB HDD.
It has a free M.2 slot available if you wish to put more storage in it.

This beast is just resting in its original box waiting for a new owner to take it out for a spin.
Does nobody want a portal Thin and Light platform for Work and Play?
This thing is also not like your average laptop, it has the fastest 8th gen Intel i7 CPU, IO ports for days including Thunderbolt 3, fully customizable RGB keyboard, full performance 1070GTX, super fast SD card reader and 144Hz G-Sync display screen.
