While we rarely cover devices that aren’t likely to retail in the U.S., the power of anime compels us to let you know about the ASUS Sky Selection 2. Namely, this gaming laptop is now a thing, in all its unapologetically flashy glory.

Could this quirky design hide a serious gaming powerhouse?

In all seriousness, it doesn’t appear the anime connection goes any deeper than ASUS opting for an in-your-face marketing campaign. That bold approach is likely to pay off, given how the ASUS Sky Selection 2 wields plenty of stopping power on its own. Namely, the neon-blue finish makes it difficult for anyone who catches so much as a glimpse of it not to stop and take a genuine look at what this gaming-oriented notebook has to offer.

Do not let the eccentric design fool you, however – the ASUS Sky Selection 2 is a true gaming powerhouse. From its 15.6-inch FHD display and its 240Hz refresh rate, 64GB of 3,200Mhz DDR4 RAM and a 512GB PCIe SSD, to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 GPU and AMD Ryzen R7-5800H CPU, this thing is as futureproof as they come. The ASUS Sky Selection 2 is currently available for pre-orders in China at the equivalent of over $1,400. While we’re unlikely to ever see it hit stateside retail, every true hardware connoisseur can always resort to importing.
