ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501

The ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 features one of the most novel cooling solutions on a laptop. The bottom panel opens up like a trapdoor when the lid is up, in order to provide more ventilation for the powerful NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q GPU under the hood. The laptop also measures a mere 17.9mm thick, but you’ll still get a 120Hz G-Sync display for a smooth and tear-free experience.
