In this corner, standing 15.6" diagonal and weighing in at 2.1kg, we have the new Asus ROG Zephyrus S! With an i7-8750H processor, an RTX 2080 Max-Q and up to 24GB of DDR4-2666 this featherweight contender packs a lot of punch. The screen is an IPS panel with a top refresh rate of 144Hz, though it only offers 1080p resolution which may upset some viewers. This is definitely a right hander, you can tell by the placement of the touchpad and buttons, an interesting choice but one which allows the keyboard to extend right to the bottom of the shell.
With such a light and compact build, can it stand up to the competition? Check out the rumble over at eTeknix to see if it is a knockout or if we are looking at a split decision.
"When it comes to performance laptops, there are very few brands that demand more attention than the ASUS ROG 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."
