The Asus TUF Gaming A16 Advantage Edition really stands out from the pack in terms of performance, battery life, price, and so on. As far as budget gaming laptops go, it checks off a lot of boxes. However, one of the more unique things about this sub-$1,000 laptop is its long battery life.
Gaming on a laptop while unplugged can seemingly drain your battery in the blink of an eye. This makes it difficult to game on the go without having to constantly be seeking the nearest outlet. But Asus has done wonders with the battery life in its A16 models and the latest 2023 version is even more efficient. In our battery tests, the A16 ran for a whopping 11.5 hours of continuous use without stopping. Now, intensive gaming will reduce this significantly, but the 90 watt-hour battery should still net you about seven hours of 1080p gaming without having to plug into an AC outlet. That’s way better than most of the competitors on this list.
The Asus TUF Gaming A16 Advantage Edition is no slouch when it comes to performance either. It’s loaded with a Ryzen 7 processor, AMD Radeon RX 7600S graphics card, 16GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD. Plus, it’s also relatively affordable. All of this makes the A16 an excellent option for 1080p gamers—especially those who want to take their gaming on the go.
