Gaming laptops are known for its bulky size and weight but this year Asus launches its new gaming laptop. At first glance it looks like an ultra book with only 17.9mm thick and weight around 4.93 pounds. It is made with a combination of metal and plastic. When it comes to hardware this laptop is fully loaded having Intel i7 processor with the clock speed of 2.8 GHz, 16 GB Ram and SSD of 512 GB, it has Nvidia’s Geforce GTX 1080 with Max-Q Design and also 8GB VRAM is included.
Most interesting thing about Zephyrus is its active aerodynamic system. When you open the lid of laptop then in the bottom a part opens which allows 20 more cooling. It has four USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, a headphone jack, a USB type c port and it is to slim for an Ethernet cable so company included a USB to Ethernet dongle in the box.
Its screen 15.6 inch is pretty bright but it has resolution of 1080p which is quite less if we compare it to its rivals but having low resolution screen has many benefits such as improved battery backup, in spite of that it is quite decent actually. Viewing angles and colors are also good which supports Nvidia’s G-sync technology which is ideal for smoother gaming.
Performance wise it is a beast that can perform any task but the biggest problem for this laptop is its keyword placement. You don’t get any space for your wrist to rest while using this laptop. Company does included a rubber wrist rest which you can place in front of your laptop which I personally feel is not that good and make the whole laptop experience more uncomfortable.
Summing up if you are looking for a sleek gaming laptop that looks stylish and has interesting cooling system then you can spend your $2699 but you can also get poor battery life with bad keyword placement.
