Ultrabook Review

Andrei Girbea | March 2023
"The 2023 Asus ROG Zephryus G16 is a refinement of the popular Zephyrus M16 2022 chassis, with updated hardware and a fresh set of either White or dark Grey clothes. This series is most competitive in the more affordable lower and mid-tier configurations, as a compact and lightweight all-purpose laptop with a big 16-inch display. Just make sure you're ok with its design quirks and the mix of temperatures/noise levels under load."

Florian Glaser | August 2022
"Users who travel frequently and are looking for a portable laptop are in the right place with the Asus ZenBook 14. The sleek case is extremely light (1.2 kg) and surprisingly thin (1.5 cm). Outdoor use is also enjoyable thanks to the bright Full HD display, which is something that can rarely be said about laptops with TN or IPS panels. The excellent battery life complements this as well. Longer trips are no problem with the ZenBook 14. Another plus point is the high-performance Ryzen 7 5700U, which often leaves the Intel competition in the dust thanks to its large number of cores."
