The ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 is a high-performance laptop with a relatively premium price tag, suitable for intensive gaming, engineering, and 3D/machine learning tasks. It has an AMD Ryzen 9 processor and an Nvidia RTX 4080 GPU, delivering top-notch performance. It includes 16 GB of RAM and a 1024 GB storage drive, which is ample for most professional and gaming needs. The 14-inch IPS display offers a resolution of 2560 x 1600 and a max refresh rate suitable for fast-paced content. The battery life is decent, balancing performance with some degree of portability, weighing under 4 pounds. The laptop has a variety of ports including USB-C and HDMI, though it lacks Ethernet and Thunderbolt ports. The backlit keyboard, fingerprint reader, and Windows 11 Home enhance the user experience. However, its main drawbacks are its size, making it less portable than smaller, lighter laptops, and potential fan noise during heavy usage. Give Feedback

Andreas Osthoff | April 2023
"The Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 offers an impressive package. Asus improves the performance of the new 2023 ROG Zephyrus G14 considerable and offers a very powerful 14-inch notebook with plenty of performance for gamers and content creators. The high-quality chassis is unchanged from last year, but is now equipped with the latest and greatest from AMD as well as Nvidia. The Mini-LED panel also puts up a convincing performance in pretty much every regard, even though the MacBook Pro 14 still offers superior brightness values. The panel works extremely well for gaming and the included color profiles offer very accurate colors."
