ASUS is growing its Zephyrus family of notebooks. The original Zephyrus (GX501) was an impressive specimen of a notebook with a slim and light design, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q, and a novel cooling solution. However, it was also prohibitively expensive at S$4,898, which put it out of reach of many customers.
I'll be looking at the Zephyrus M today, a 15.6-inch notebook that retains aspects of the original Zephyrus' design while returning to a more conventional look. For starters, the keyboard and trackpad have returned to their traditional positions, but the bottom of the notebook still drops open when the lid is raised for additional ventilation.
Here's an overview of its specifications:
The laptop will cost you S$3,898 – not cheap, but still a thousand dollars less than the first Zephyrus. Here's a closer look at what the Zephyrus M brings to the table.
