Powerfully specced, the Zephyrus GX501 from Asus is designed for notebook gamers wanting to turn things up a notch, but struggles to fit in with more simple day-to-day tasks.
PROS
Slim design; Powerful processor and GPU; Bright and crisp display
CONS
Keyboard layout not great for typing; Is still quite heavy
VERDICT
The Zephyrus GX501 is a powerful gaming notebook, of that there is no question. If you're aiming to invest in a solid piece of hardware that will stand you in good stead for the next few years, this one from Asus is tough to beat.
