In our Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 review, we were impressed by its slim design, stellar performance and solid audio. We were also fond of its comfortable keyboard and amazing battery life.
In real-world tests, our Ryzen 9-charged Zephyrus G14 tore through multitasking. Our reviewer opened 40 Google Chrome pages, five YouTube videos streaming and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla running in the background. The ROG Zephyrus G14's didn't so much as stutter. We expect the laptop in this deal which has a Ryzen 7 chip to be on par.
Weighing in at 3.8 pounds and 12.3 x 8.9 x 0.7~0.8 inches, the Zephyrus G14 is one of the more portable 14-inch gaming laptops. It's lighter than the Alienware x14 R1 (4.1 pounds, 12.7 x 10.3 x 0.6 inches) and Razer Blade 14 (3.9 pounds, 14.1 x 10.8 x 1 inches).
Now $400 off, the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 is a steal if you're looking for a gaming laptop under $1,000.
