While the ASUS ROG Zephyrus was definitely a showstopper last year, it wasn’t exactly the best “laptop” primarily because the track pad was in such a weird position. Then again, this isn’t something that was uniquely ASUS’ problem.
Sure, you could get used to it, or use a mouse. But what if you didn’t want that. Well, for those, you’ve got the ROG Zephyrus M (GM501). It’s a laptop that keeps a lot of what’s good with the Zephyrus but in a form that makes sense.
In tech, it feels like everything that was once big will eventually become small. Stuff like phones, desktop towers, laptops, and display bezels have all shrunk significantly over the past few years. It’s all about getting more into less and last year, gaming laptops got a massive leg up in this space.
NVIDIA’s Max-Q design GPUs were created for the sole purpose of cramming the best graphical performance in the smallest form-factor possible — even in bodies that are as slim as 2cm thick. And that gave way to a rise in the number of super slim gaming laptops that, as we found out, were all pretty darn good.
So, if the slim ones are so good, why would you ever buy something as massive as Lenovo’s Legion Y920 gaming laptop?
Oh boy. Acer threw down the gauntlet in 2016 when they snatched the crown of world’s thinnest laptop right out of HP’s hands. The original Swift 7 was a stunning 9.98mm thick, making it the first laptop to take things below 1cm. It’s been two years since then and nobody’s been able to beat Acer’s accomplishment.
Left without a contender, Acer decided to take things a step further and outdo themselves. Here’s the world’s thinnest laptop 2.0.
You can’t have your cake and eat it too. For the most part, life is a barter trade where luxury demands hard work, perfection necessitates dedication, and power requires sacrifice. It’s a humbling principle that basically reminds you that you can’t have it both ways.
This is primarily the reason why purebred high-end gaming laptops never really interested me. Sure, they had all the power in the world but because of these high-powered components, the laptops needed to be enormous so those components could breathe.
There was no such thing as a no-compromise gaming laptop that was also super portable. Well, at least I didn’t think there was until I saw the Acer Predator Triton 700.

If you’ve been looking for a gaming laptop, you’re in luck because it’s gaming laptop season. Hot on the heels of HP’s Omen and a little after Lenovo’s Legion, Acer‘s throwing its hat in the ring with two brand new gaming laptops that sit firmly in the budget and midrange gaming category.
This is it. ASUS has done something absolutely awesome with the gaming laptop and it comes in the form of the ROG Zephyrus. Named after the Greek god of the West Wind, its name alone should give you a hint about what makes this ultra-thin, ultra-powerful gaming laptop special.
Yep, it’s in its cooling.
