  • What is the Asus ROG GR8 II-T017Z? The PC is the greatest gaming platform on earth, but the size of many such rigs makes them rather inflexible. Not so with the Asus ROG GR8 II, since this little PC is console-sized and will be as at home under a TV as it is connected to a monitor. A low price for this mid-range model (the T01Z) makes it all the more exciting, although a few hardware upgrades may be necessary to make the most of this computer.Update: Since my inital review, Asus has informed me they plan to sell a version with an SSD in the UK. It’s a good move, as flash storage would make the PC much faster to boot and load applications. If you want a GR8 II, it might be worth waiting. Asus has also announced that several new specifications will be launching later this year, including a 6GB GTX 1060 model along with a cheaper GTX 1050 Ti version as well. It might pay to wait until then, although right now some retailers are selling the ROG GR8 with a mouse, keyboard, headset and mou..
