Gaming is something to be enjoyed, so why not be more comfortable for extended gaming sessions? Fatigue will be a thing of the past, thanks to the ROG G53SX-XR1's 5° incline keyboard designed to provide a better ergonomic angle, as well as super comfortable rubber-like palm rests that's easy on the palm and wrist. There's also more space between the keyboard and number pad, so it resembles a desktop keyboard.
The harder you work, the more heat you generate. A computer is no different, and with the amount of power in the ROG G53SX-XR1, some serious cooling is needed. A unique venting design pulls air from underneath the notebook, cooling the system down, and then vents it through the rear, keeping hot air away from the user and reducing ambient noise for prolonged gaming.
Like its predecessor, the ROG G53SX-XR1 design was inspired by sharp polygonal shapes, but this time inspiration came from the US Navy's Sea Shadow stealth ship and modern day aircraft carriers. Like the stealth ship, opponents will never know what hit 'em, and like an aircraft carrier, the ROG G53SX-XR1 has the firepower to shock and awe the competition.
