3. Cost and availability
Asus ROG G20CI costs 1,599 dollars. The fact that it packs the most powerful components that exist on the market in a small chassis is the reason why it is expensive. It is even more expensive in the UK. But there are several price ranges for it so it is worth checking out with several retailers before purchasing. You may end up saving some money.
The Asus ROG G20CI is 10.3 x 33.9 x 35.8cm. This is smaller than the compact PC gaming machines like the Alienware Aurora R6, that measures 21 x 36 x 47cm.
It is even smaller than the original Xbox1, but it is not so much big than the PS4 Pro. Its compactness also comes with a cost in terms of keeping it cool. When the chassis is small, fans have to work harder. This can lead to a so much noise.
Asus ROG G20CI is a gaming computer that you can use to play slot online and any other game you like. You can it plug into your television and it can never look completely out of place.
Its actual aesthetics can also leap out on you. It is a bespoke chassis created specifically for the Asus ROG G20 line of gaming computers. It stands out from gaming machines that use 3rd-party cases.
The Asus ROG G20CI design is definitely ROG although it has severe edges together with grilles from airflow which have a design similar to that of circuit boards. This design is seen in most ASUS ROG products, for instance the Asus ROG Gladius II mouse.
The case as well features Asus Aura RGB lighting. The light lights up the box with different colours. The lights get tweaked through a preinstalled app allowing the user to change the colours, patterns or just switch off the lights.
In front of the chassis, there are 2 USB ports, a headphone jack, a mic jack and a DVD drive (for playing CDs, DVDc or old disc-based games).
Several compromises were made to achieve the Asus ROG G20CI compact design. The compact design also makes it hard to upgrade. But in general, it is a powerful gaming machine.
