ASUS ROG Zephyrus S
When it comes to performance laptops, there are very few brands that demand more attention than the ASUS ROG (Republic of Gamers) Zephyrus range.
In terms of gaming laptops, the Zephyrus design really does look to tick all of the right boxes with high-performance components with an ultra-slim and light weight design.

As you might expect, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus has a number of slightly different model variants. We know this as we have already reviewed a few of them and, incidentally, also own a couple. These differences are generally quite minor and generally tend to be based upon the graphics card and storage capacity. For example, in this particularly range, SSDs are available from 256GB all the way up to 1TB.
The specific model we had was the GX531 which features an Intel 8750H processor, Nvidia 2080 graphics card and a 15.6″ 144Hz display.
