Singapore-based PC manufacturer Aftershock PC is back with two new additions to its ultra-slim Vapor gaming laptops, following the success of last year’s Aftershock Vapor 15 Pro.
The first of the two new variants is the Aftershock Vapor 15, which is a step down the 15 Pro in terms of hardware. Weighing just 1.7kg and measuring just 18mm thick (a touch lighter and thinner than the 15 Pro’s 1.88kg and 20mm), the Vapor 15 is Aftershock’s most petite 15-inch gaming laptop to date, thanks to its lightweight and tough magnesium alloy chassis.
Under the hood, the Vapor 15 comes with a display that boasts an impressive 144Hz refresh rate. When combined with an Intel i7 processor and an Nvidia RTX 2070 GPU, Gaming on the Vapor 15 is as solid as it gets. Also, it has a 64WH XL battery, which enables it to run without being hooked up on power for about three-quarters of a day.
The Aftershock Vapor 17 Pro is the most souped-up version of the bunch, boasting similar CPU and GPU hardware, in a much more eye-catching 17.3-inch display. What takes the cake here is that it also comes with a Thunderbolt 3 input, meaning data transfer is lightning-quick, and it also has a massive 92WH XL battery, so it can literally last almost an entire day.
Not to mention that it is Aftershock’s most portable 17-inch gaming laptop to date, weighing just 2kg and measuring just 19.5mm thick.
The Aftershock Vapor 15 and Vapor 17 Pro launches on the Aftershock online store today, 18 February 2020. The Vapor 15 will retail from S$2,199, while the Vapor 17 Pro will retail from S$2,250.

Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
