Save $600! The Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 is the best overall gaming laptop you can buy. This configuration comes sports a 14-inch 1920 x 1080 144Hz display, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, an AMD Ryzen 7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of SSD storage. In our <a href="" data-link-merchant=""" data-link-merchant=""">Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 review, we said the Editor's Choice laptop delivers great performance, incredible battery life (11 hours and 32 minutes), and unbeatable portability.

In my Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 review I celebrated this laptop for its potent blend of performance, power efficiency and portability, a blend that only gets headier when you get it for nearly half off. Now that some of the best Prime Day deals are live, you can score this machine ahead of July.

I've always liked the slim, aggressive design of the Zephyrus G14, and at under 4 pounds it won't break your back when you're on the go. The battery is good enough to make taking this gaming laptop to work or school seem like a good idea, too, which is rare in gaming laptops. In our testing the Zephyrus G14 lasted 11 hours and 32 minutes while surfing the web, and while you'll likely get less out of it (especially when gaming), the fact that you can stretch the battery that long in a gaming laptop is a real feat. 

The 14-inch 1080p display is nice to look at and offers a speedy 144Hz refresh rate, which is important to have when playing games at high framerates. You'll be able to do a decent bit of that too thanks to the power under the hood, provided by an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, an AMD Ryzen 7 CPU, 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. 

In short, it's a solid gaming laptop that's a steal at this price. If you're in the market for a mid-range portable gaming PC, this is a great deal.
