Razer has been owning the gaming notebook market for a while now, but with competitors like MSI, GIGABYTE, and ASUS - that lead isn't guaranteed.

ASUS continued to refine their gaming notebooks, with reports suggesting a new premium gaming laptop is in the works - with it measuring in at just 16.65mm thick. There are Ultrabooks on the market that are thicker than that, so the rumor that ASUS is cramming in a GeForce GTX 1080 inside has us excited.

Not only that, but we should see Intel's new Core i7-7700HQ processor, up to 24GB of DDR4 RAM, and super-fast PCIe x4-based NVMe SSD. We should expect ASUS to unveil the GTX 1080-powered gaming notebook next week at CES 2017.
