Asus ROG Strix Scar 17 G732LXS laptop review: Frontier runner
In view of the laptop’s price, the connectivity is a bit meager. You’ll look in vain for a cardreader or a Kensington lock. Neither a Thunderbolt 3 port nor a dedicated DisplayPort can be found. External monitors either go to the HDMI output or to the USB C 3.1 Gen2 port, which supports DisplayPort. The remaining three USB ports (Type-A) only support the 3.0 standard. The package is rounded off by an audio jack, an RJ45 port, and the so-called Keystone slot.
The Keystone is a special key, developed by Asus, which serves to individualize the device or saves its settings and is supposed to protect personal data (hidden shadow drive). Seeing the Keystone as a useful feature or as an unnecessary gimmick is something everyone has to decide upon for themselves. Since a majority of the ports are located at the rear, there is plenty of space for moving a mouse.
