The Asus ROG Zephryus G14 received strong reviews when it launched earlier this year, combining the specs of a gaming laptop with a Ryzen 4000H processor and NVIDIA graphics with the portability of a thin and (fairly) light notebook at just 3.64 pounds and 0.7 inches thick.
The notebook also has a funky lid with LED lights that let you display different patterns to folks looking at the notebook. It’s kind of gimmicky, but it’s kind of a nice feature to have if you happen to be a DJ or anyone else who works in public spaces where standing out and being noticed isn’t a bad thing.
Anyway, one down side is that a top-tier version of the laptop is pretty expensive, with a list price of $1450. But over the holiday shopping period, Asus and some retail partners have been offering discounts.
