Now we have some interesting news about their prices. The Lenovo Y520 and Aspire VX 15 still remain two of the most affordable models with high-performance for the class but the ROG GL553VE which packs some great features gets a price cut which makes it even more tempting.
The ROG GL553VE is equipped with the same hardware as all the other aforementioned models and most of its class – Intel Core i7-7700HQ and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti but it also packs some outstanding features such as a high-quality display with 92% sRGB coverage and above average battery life. Of course, everything which is better than its competitors usually comes with a higher price tag and the ROG GL553VE is no exception in that matter. Its usual price is around $1299 which is about $200 more than most other budget gaming notebooks. However, ASUS has recently dropped its price by 12%, now selling for just $1144.89 for a configuration with 256 GB SSD and 1 TB HDD and 16 GB RAM. That $150 cut makes it an even fiercer competitor to the similarly priced Y520.

Still, other models with the same configuration cost less. Lenovo Legion Y520 which is one of the hottest budget gaming notebooks at the moment sells for as low as $1100, still almost $50 less than the GL553VE. It does not feature such a good screen but it is still a great option for less money.
