This Asus ROG Zephyrus G packs a 15.6-inch 1080p IPS display, 2.3GHz AMD Ryzen 7 3750H quad-core CPU, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and a GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q GPU.
Sister site Laptop Mag reviewed this exact configuration and liked its thin design and solid graphics performance. They were also impressed by its above-average battery life (for a gaming laptop), which lasted 4 hours and 48 minutes.
At a mere 4.5 pounds, the Zephyrus G is thinner and lighter than the Dell G5 15 SE (5.6 pounds) and the Lenovo Legion Y7000 (5.3 pounds). In performance tests, the Zephyrus G juggled 40 Google Chrome tabs, five 1080p YouTube videos, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider simultaneously without skipping a beat. Thanks to its GTX 1660 Ti GPU, the Zephyrus G also blazed through Shadow of the Tomb Raider (Highest, 1080p) at 36 frames per second.
Overall, the Zephyrus G is a solid gaming laptop if you're on a slightly flexible budget. You get strong graphics performance, good battery life, and a solid pair of speakers all for a grand.
