Dads have many different ideas about what should happen on the perfect Father’s Day. Some imagine an afternoon cooking at the backyard grill. Others plan an afternoon at the golf course or movie theater. Some just look forward to a well-deserved nap on the couch. But almost every father thinks first and foremost about time with family. When you see Dad this year, why not surprise him with a thoughtful gift? For this year’s Father’s Day gift guide, we have a tempting selection of laptops, computer components, and peripherals ready to make this holiday one to remember.

Laptops with the right touch of luxury

Many dads out there love their tools—and the one they work with most often is their laptop. Our Zenbook and Vivobook laptops will give him the effortless performance he demands for everyday computing, and their stunning OLED displays will elevate everything he uses his laptop for.

Maybe Dad is a bit of a space geek. We are, too—we can’t wait for the first images from the James Webb Space Telescope. That’s just one reason why we created the Zenbook 14X OLED Space Edition. This out-of-this-world laptop celebrates the 25th anniversary of the first ASUS laptop sent to space. With its space-grade durability, space-themed styling, and futuristic 3.5-inch OLED ZenVision display on the lid, it’s the ultimate laptop for the dad who can’t keep his eyes off the stars. Its high-resolution OLED display is perfect for everything from streaming shows to browsing the web—click here for a full breakdown on why Dad’s next laptop should have an OLED display.

Get him the gaming rig he craves

We wouldn’t be surprised if Dad has his eye on a new gaming PC. With hot new games like Elden Ring on the market, fathers everywhere are sizing up their computers to see if they can handle the stunning visuals on offer in the latest games. If Dad needs an upgrade to truly enjoy his favorite PC games, we have a full selection of options for him.

TUF Dash F15 gaming laptop on a desk

Let’s start with a budget-friendly option that covers all the essentials. The TUF Dash F15 is a lightweight, easy-to-carry laptop, yet when it’s time to perform, it draws on the power of a 12th Gen Intel Core CPU and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti. A speedy 144Hz display will give Dad an edge in his favorite online multiplayer games, and this laptop offers all the connectivity he needs to hook up his favorite monitor and peripherals.

ROG Flow Z13 gaming tablet with a controller

By any measure, the TUF Dash F15 is a portable machine, but for a gaming PC that’s even more personal you can’t beat the ROG Flow Z13. Our first gaming tablet, this device packs exceptional PC power into a stunningly compact and versatile package. If Dad likes to cozy up in a corner with a gamepad, this is the PC for him. He can even connect it to the ROG XG Mobile external graphics dock for blazing-fast graphics performance and wide connectivity whenever he’s at his desk. Click here to learn more about what it’s like to game and play with the Flow Z13.

Whether you’re looking for more screen space, more sheer gaming horsepower, or more top-tier gaming features, the ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 offers all of the above. With its built-in secondary display, it’ll give Dad the multitasking prowess of an extra display no matter where it goes. We used the space underneath the rising screen to augment the laptop’s cooling system, so it offers stunning CPU and GPU performance, all without undue fan noise. And it’ll give your father an incomparable set of display options: either the Nebula HDR Display with its Mini LED backlight, or the Dual Spec Panel that offers him the choice of 4K or 240Hz FHD modes.

The cure for a congested home WiFi network

One of the best gifts for any father is the gift of great internet. Many folks’ home router just isn’t made for the demands of a modern connected household. If dad’s online ambitions are being slowed down by a congested network or an out-of-date router, it’s time to get him back in the fast lane.

Larger, multi-story homes can pose a challenge for traditional routers. Our mesh WiFi systems make it quick and easy to extend one network to every corner of your dad’s home. Take a peek at this quick guide for some notes on how to pick a ZenWiFi system that meets your father’s bandwidth needs, the decor of his home, and the construction of his building. For dads who live in a region where the 6GHz spectrum has been opened for consumer use, the ZenWiFi ET8  is a tempting choice. For devices with compatible WiFi 6E radios, this system can use the wide-open 6GHz band rather than the congested 2.4GHz and 5Ghz bands, giving your father the seamless internet access he desires.

ROG Rapture GT-AXE16000 wireless router

Here’s a great option for the gamer dads out there: the ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000. The world’s first quad-band WiFi 6E gaming router, this device offers data rates as high as 4,804 Mbps to compatible WiFi 6E devices—and that’s before you consider its two 5GHz bands and 2.4GHz band. All told, that’s 16,000 Mbps of aggregate throughput, provided that WiFi 6E is available in your region. Exceptional wired connectivity options, premium performance from a quad-core CPU, and customizable Aura Sync RGB LEDs add up to make this a coveted piece of tech for dads who demand the best from their gaming hardware.

For the dad with a need for speed

Dads know that life moves at you fast. Their favorite competitive online games do, too. Here’s a gift for the Counter-Strike competitors, the League of Legends ladder-climbers, and the Valorant victors. The ROG Swift 360Hz PG259QN gaming monitor is poised to give Dad more speed than he thought was possible.

With its astonishing 360Hz refresh rate, this monitor is perfect for today’s fast-paced esports games. Its supremely fluid and responsive animation will give him the edge he needs to stay on top of every moment in virtual battle.

For the dad who likes to build PCs

There’s nothing wrong with handing Dad a fully assembled and ready-to-go gaming PC. But there’s a special pleasure in building a PC yourself. For the dad who’ll love his computer more if he has the chance to assemble it himself, we’ve got the foundational components that he’ll need.

The ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3080 OC Edition graphics card

We encourage you to sit down with Dad and pick the parts for his new PC together—PC builders have many preferences you might not know about, and he’ll love the opportunity to talk with you about his hobby. But while you’re shopping, you might nudge him to go big and set up his dream machine with one of the finest graphics cards on the market. Once Dad takes one look at the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3080 OC Edition graphics card, he’ll fall in love with its exceptional 2.9-slot cooling solution, beastly boost clocks, and impeccable styling.

Of course, Father’s Day is a great opportunity to give that man the best. The ROG Strix LC GeForce RTX 3090 Ti OC Edition reigns supreme with a liquid cooling solution that allows its top-tier GPU to deliver its chart-topping performance. A whopping 24GB of supremely fast GDDR6X VRAM accelerates gaming and content creation alike. For the dad with a passion for cutting-edge PC hardware, this is a gift he’ll never forget.

ROG Strix Z690-E Gaming WiFi motherboard

A brand-new graphics card would look awfully nice inside a brand-new gaming PC. We built our company’s reputation on the legendary quality and performance of our mothoards, and that legacy continues today. If Dad’s been eyeing up one of Intel’s latest 12th Gen Core processors, consider setting him up with a high-end motherboard. The ROG Strix Z690-E Gaming WiFi will give him access to next-gen DDR5 RAM—not to mention PCIe 5.0 graphics cards and storage drives. From premium audio to high-end networking, from its exceptional port selection to its robust VRM circuitry, this flagship board will give your father the perfect foundation for his dream PC.

ROG Strix Z590-A Gaming WiFi motherboard
