With online classes and work-from-home setups becoming the new norm, the demand for laptops have increased significantly. If you're also on the lookout for new tech, here's one that might catch your interest (though your bank account might disagree...).

This new laptop model by ASUS is gaining online attention, and not just for its impressive features, but also for its price: the laptop is worth a whopping P649,995. In a Facebook post, ASUS stated that the new model, called ASUS ProArt StudioBook One, is the first ever laptop to have NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ 6000 graphics. According to NVIDIA's website, the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000 "provides simple connectivity to the next-generation of high-resolution VR head-mounted displays," meaning it's really ~advanced~.

Aside from that, the new model also boasts of an Intel® Core™ i9-9980HK processor 2.4GHz octa-core with Turbo Boost of up to 5.0GHz. For comparison, Apple's newest Macbook Pro model (priced from P104,000 to P116,990) has a 2.0GHz quad-core 10th-generation Intel Core i5 processor with Turbo Boost of up to 3.8GHz.
