The ROG Zephyrus M (GM501) is a powerful notebook designed with an emphasis on cooling. How does it stack up against the competition?

Good gaming performance;144Hz G-Sync IPS-type display;Windows Precision Touchpad

Limited display outputs and no SD card slot;Thick bezels;Heavy;Poor battery life

Asus' latest gaming laptop powered by Intel's new six-core chips

 

With a new CPU, lower price and a much better touchpad, this is a slim gaming laptop that can, finally, work for almost anyone.

This second-gen version of the Asus Zephyrus keeps the inventive raised cooling vent, lowers the price, adds a new six-core Intel Core i7 CPU and fixes the poor touchpad placement in the original.

The fans still get quite loud, battery life is short, there's a thick screen bezel around the nontouch display, and there's no built-in Ethernet jack, which is important for downloading large game files.

Asus adds Intel's powerful new six-core Core i7 CPU to the slim Zephyrus gaming laptop, while fixing some of the original's design quirks and even lowering the price.

Powerful, solid, well-designed laptop

 

"Asus's Zephyrus gaming laptop is named after the Greek god of the west wind, and this laptop is both exceedingly fast and able to make its users very productive, both defining characteristics of the original Zephyrus. All components are neatly...

Very high performance; Excellent screen (especially in g-sync mode); Well-built throughout; Neat cooling solution

Greater key-depth would be good

Really nice laptop

 

"After 20+ hours research of laptops in 1300-1800 range, I chose this laptop. I don't regret it. "

Brutally fast; simple design; great keyboard; great performance monitoring apps (asus); can run any game on high/ultra >60fps; amazing display - 144hz 1080p, nvidia g-sync; Plenty of RAM, plenty of storage; No heat issues; perfect for everyday use

Case can get smudged - not a problem really though; short battery life - made to be plugged in

Exceeds Expectations

 

"This is amazing, was looking at buying another Mac originally but this is so much better, the graphics are stunning. Not the cheapest by any means but you do get what you pay for and this is quality."
