  • If you're willing to spend nearly $3,000 on a laptop with the looks of an ultrabook but the power of a desktop, this is for you. Yes, it might have keyboard and touchpad placement off the beaten path — their placement will either drive you mad or leave yo...

    Good: Fantastic gaming performance, Slim form factor, Interesting cooling system

    Bad: Battery life is incredibly short

    What if your gaming laptop just looked like a laptop? That was the promise of Nvidia's Max-Q tech that the company announced earlier this year — a new specification that could put the company's most powerful GPUs into laptops that were just as thin, light...

  • Good: Good build quality, Clean and sophisticated design, Incredibly thin and portable, Excellent IPS panel with G-Sync support and 120Hz refresh rate, The screen doesn't use PWM across all brightness levels, Well-designed cooling system – keeps the heat away f...

    Bad: Lower than usual maximum brightness for an IPS panel, Limited upgradability (only one M.2 SSD slot and one RAM slot), Shallow keyboard, small touchpad, Poor battery life

    Finally, we have a new generation of ultra thin gaming notebooks without sacrificing too much performance. The ASUS ROG Zephyrus is one of the first of its kind and impresses with high-quality build (although a bit flexible at times but given the thicknes...

    Good: Performance never seen before in such a slim chassis. It's pretty quiet under full load. Great 1080p 120Hz GSync display

    Bad: It has a GTX 1080 inside, but you're not getting full GTX 1080 performance. Somewhat awkward keyboard and trackpad

    Gaming laptops are more popular than ever, and that's explained by the fact that today you can get a laptop that provides a desktop-like experience in a highly portable form factor.Gone are the days of ridiculously bulky laptops. Consumers never loved t...

  • Good: The super-slim design of the Asus Zephyrus hides excellent gaming performance and a powerful Nvidia 1080 graphics card. The hidden kickstand vent provides cooling while not interfering with portability

    Bad: The large cooling vent feels flimsy when opened. The display tops out at standard HD resolution, and the misplaced touchpad on the far right side is tough to get used to

    Asus has created a surprisingly slim Nvidia 1080 gaming laptop in the Zephyrus. It's expensive and has a few design quirks, but it's also very portable and just plain fun to use...

    Good: As powerful as a gaming desktop, Thin and relatively light design, Great cooling

    Bad: Battery life is terrible, Screen resolution is just 1080p

    No matter how you look at it, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus is remarkable. It marks a new era for gaming laptops, one where you can expect a thin, 5-pound notebook to pack as much power as an 8- to 10-pound machine from a few years ago. It could conceivably be th...

    Good: Excellent gaming performance for its size and weight, 120Hz display with Nvidia G-Sync, Top-notch build quality, Quiet fans, RGB keyboard backlighting

    Bad: GTX 1080 Max-Q graphics wasn't much faster than a standard GTX 1070, Chassis gets very hot while gaming, Short battery life

    The Zephyrus is a revolutionary gaming-laptop design, packing a mighty GeForce GTX 1080 graphics chip into a body under 5 pounds. Just know it runs hot while gaming, and the gaming performance is close to that of some thicker, bigger GTX 1070 models we'v...

  • Good: Solid build quality, Amazing aesthetics, Outstanding performance for a thinandlight laptop, Color and grayscale accurate display with great contrast, Unique thermal dissipation approach

    Bad: Awkward touchpad placement, Performs much warmer than a traditional gaming laptop, Poor battery life, Thermal panel is flimsy, Expensive

    The Asus ROG Zephyrus packs outstanding performance in an ultrabook-like form factor, accomplishing what we previously thought was impossible. Plus, you won't get judgemental stares if you use it in public! This laptop is sexy. - MORE: Best Gami...

    Good: Sexy, lightweight chassis, Innovative cooling system, Stunning Nvidia G-Sync display, Impressive gaming and overall performance, Runs cool when gaming,

    Bad: Subpar battery life, Weak audio,

    The Asus ROG Zephyrus squeezes a powerful Nvidia 1080 GPU into a thin-and-light chassis, giving you a 5-pound monster you can take anywhere...

  • A couple of weeks ago I was braving the big crowds of E3 to meet with the Nvidia team, and while I was ostensibly there to check out Destiny 2 on a PC, what I really wanted to know was what the hell Max-Q Design was. Nvidia announced its new design philo...

  • Good: Super-thin GTX 1080 laptop, Tasteful design with innovative, quiet thermal solutions, Top-end performance in initial testing, 120Hz G-Sync display, Plenty of ports, including USB-C with Thunderbolt 3

    Bad: Short battery life, Only 1080p resolution, Bottom panel isn't sturdy when venting, Skinny right-aligned touchpad

    Thanks to Nvidia's Max-Q initiative and a clever design, the Asus ROG Zephyrus looks to be the new benchmark for powerful, thin gaming laptops...
