ASUS ROG GR8 keuyboard

The ASUS ROG GR8 comes with a mechanical gaming keyboard and mouse which feels really great to use. The hardware of the ASUS ROG GR8 isn’t the best in its price range (Yeah, they should’ve used at least an Nvidia 8xx series GPU) but I’m pretty sure that it can run games like Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare & Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes at the highest settings at 1080p resolution (And yes! it was awesome!). The ASUS ROG GR8 is now available and it comes with a mechanical keyboard and mouse for P57,990.
