Thunderobot ST Plus, balanced i7 gaming laptop with GTX 1050 Ti

In today's review we have to analyze the ThundeRobot ST Plus. We have not talked about any laptop for gamers for a long time, but it recently just debuted on GearBest with a really juicy price, so we are going to take this opportunity to see what the new laptop from the Asian manufacturer has to offer.

The ThundeRobot ST Plus came out about 6 months ago at a price of around 1,300 euros here in Spain. Its launch price on GearBest right now is € 999.99, a reduction of almost 300 euros. What can we expect from this "inexpensive" gaming laptop?

The least we can demand of a laptop of this type is that it has a good performance, but let's go by parts and take a look at the rest of the components.

Design and display

At the design level, we find a computer that embraces well-marked shapes and edges, which clearly denote its video game nature. It has a fairly thin thickness for what these types of devices tend to be, at just 2.9 cm, and a relatively light weight of 2.3 kg.

As far as screen is concerned, it shows a panel of 15.6 inches with a Full HD resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels. A screen that behaves very well in general lines, but that suffers a bit when we look at it from too curved sides. It is not that we are going to play games looking at the computer from a corner, but it is something that should be emphasized, in any case.

Power and performance

Entering the heart of the beast we discover more than decent hardware for productivity and gaming tasks:

  • A processor Intel Core i7 (Kabylake i7-7700HQ) running at a frequency of 2.8GHz to 3.8GHz.
  • 8GB RAM DDR4 (2 slots available).
  • 128GB SSD + 1TB of hard disk.
  • Operating system: Windows 10.

For a 1000-euro gaming laptop, the truth is that it is not bad at all, although if we want to get the most out of the most demanding games, it is advisable to expand the RAM of the device a little more.

This is not to say that the laptop falls short on the gaming experience, far from it. From what we have been able to read in different tests and tests, the Thunderobot ST Plus works wonderfully with games like Overwatch, League of Legends, Counter Strike or DOTA 2. In addition, most games run at 60fps in high performance, which is the refresh rate of the screen.

Graphic card

The graphics that equips the Thunderobot ST Plus is an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4GB of GDDR5 memory. This graphic has technology NVIDIA Gameworks and NVIDIA Ansel, with which we can take 360-degree game captures and view them in VR. A curious detail but that can give a lot of play in the face of replays and gameplay recording. Supports DirectX 12, VR and multiple monitors (Matrix Display with 4K enabled output for 2 external monitors).

Ports, keyboard and connectivity

The ST Plus has a backlit RGB keyboard with English layout. This means that it does not have the “ñ” key, although it is something that we can easily solve by setting the Windows keyboard configuration in Spanish. We can always pull a mechanical keyboard as an accessory, but if we are used to typing like this it is something that we will hardly notice.

As far as ports and departures are concerned, this Thunderobot includes 2 USB 3.1 ports, one USB 2.0 port, 2 mini DP ports, USB type C, HDMI, RJ45 and 3.5mm headphone jack.

How could it be otherwise, it also incorporates Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi AC.


Another important aspect is the battery. In this case, the Thunderobot wears a 5600mAh lithium battery, which gives a range of about 4-5 hours of moderate use, and between 3-4 hours of gaming before having to plug it into the charger.

Price and availability

As I mentioned at the beginning the Thunderobot ST Plus gaming laptop has just been presented on GearBest at a price of € 999.99, about $ 1218.39 to change. Without a doubt, a more than affordable price if what we are looking for is something that does not reach the limits of 2000 euros and the like, of the most premium laptops on the market.

It is important to note that GearBest is offering this laptop at the same price both from your main website and from your Spanish website (with shipping from Spain + 2 years warranty), so if we are residents in Spain we will be able to take advantage of this small great advantage.
