ASUS is partnering with League of Legends team SK Telecom T1 on a laptop designed specifically for esports.
The ROG Strix SKT T1 Hero Edition laptop is branded with the SKT T1 logo and features an Intel Core i7 processor and an Nvidia GeForce 1060 graphics card. On Jan. 8, ASUS unveiled the laptop’s price—$1,700 when the laptop becomes available in 2018’s first fiscal quarter.
SKT T1 is one of the world’s most successful League teams, with multiple World Championship titles to their name. Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok is likely the most popular League player in the world, most recently winning Best Esports Player at the The Game Awards in early December. SKT T1 took second place at the 2017 League World Championship, losing to Samsung Galaxy in the finals.
In November, Razer and SKT T1 launched a team-branded mouse and mousepad to celebrate the second-place finish. But if you’re interested in the ASUS laptop, ASUS will throw in its own SKT T1 mousepad, as well as an SKT T1 jersey and posters.
Faker’s signature is printed on the bottom, too, for all your Faker superfans out there.
