For a limited time Best Buy is knocking roughly $600 off the price of this Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 gaming laptop. It packs a 14-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) 165Hz display, AMD Ryzen 9 7940HS CPU, a discrete Nvidia RTX 4060 laptop GPU, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD for storage. In our Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 review, we said the laptop's speed, attractive design, and plentiful port array make for a great machine, especially at $999.

I and other members of the Computing team here at Tom's Guide have reviewed multiple models of the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 in the past, and we've reliably loved them because they're attractive and relatively easy to carry yet deliver credible gaming power and decent battery life. These are strengths that aren't easy to find in a great gaming laptop, and to get them all in one package is rare indeed.

We recently tested and reviewed a model of the G14 that's very similar to the one on sale here, and in that Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 review our reviewer praised the laptop's speed, attractive design and plentiful port array. While we were less impressed by the heat generated by the laptop when gaming, that's a common issue that most gaming laptops contend with and shouldn't be a deal-breaker.

One of the things I've always loved most about the G14 is how long it lasts on battery power. Like most gaming laptops, it can't last more than an hour or two when playing demanding games like Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty unplugged. But when you're just browsing the web you can expect this laptop to last you through a good chunk of the workday, which is rare in gaming laptops. In fact, the G14 lasted nearly ten hours in our battery tests, which is better than competitors from the likes of Alienware, MSI and Razer.

So if you need a great 14-inch gaming laptop, don't miss this opportunity to snag one of the best at a killer price!
