    Really impressed by the thermals on the Zephyrus S. The thinnest gaming laptop in the world is one of THE best cooled thin and light devices on the market. Thanks for watching!

      I hope dave reads - Better cooling was just a biproduct not a primary reason for a keyboard placement dont get why so many people hate the placement, as someone who played games on a laptop for years, i was waiting for the keybard to be at the edge and mimic the desktop one i literarly had this idea like 7-8 years ago, its not cause of cooling, its just that someone had finally figured it out how easier it is to play games for more than 20 mins on a laptop if the keyboard is desktop-like and u have it on a desk, lap use is just something ppl didnt get used to with this placement - its normal to feel weird about something new, but its way more logical like this. More than 90% ppl have their 15 or 17in laptops on a desk somewhere, i only see people use 13's actually on a lap more often than on a desk.

      :thinking: a ultra-thin laptop with RTX 2080 and 16gb ram and a decent processor and 240hz screen with a not too steep price for the laptop, tell me that's amazing

              I bought it. really enjoying it for work and play. the keyboard is very comfy and I don't think I'll ever switch back to a regular laptop keyboard. this laptop is genuinely genius

                        I need to know if G-sync will function with the USB-C with displayport connector on that one side when using an external g-sync monitor... Asus says no, but it was just an online chat support person. I read that it works like this with the Razer blade.

                              Bought this laptop at a discount for 50%.
                              Well worth it, been using this laptop for a month and it is the best gaming laptop I ever bought.
                              The only downside of this laptop is the battery other than that, great laptop

                                    una mierda total, sangrado en la pantalla, calentamiento brutal, errores con los altavoces y ademas la garantia no cubre nada de eso.

                                            Got the regular gtx 1070 version for 1100 USD. This is an absolute beast of a laptop and probably the best you can get under 2000 USD.

                                                @Chris Behling this laptop uses nvidia optimus to switch to Intel graphics when it's working on battery, i have test it couple of times, to me personally when the battery is at 15% that is where i stopp using the battery and plug the AC ,anyway, it last me 3h 20m ( +- 10% ).
                                                It charges up to 61~62 watts in about 1 hour, fully charged. Hop that was helpful.

                                                          Dave, which is the better buy this or the Razer blade if I find them for the same price?

                                                            I'd go for the Asus because Razer Blades are known to have bad quality control and poor build quality on the long term.

Albeit, Helios is slightly more GPU heavy, the thermals and the 8gb 1070 max Q combo won't be too far off. Plus I honestly think that the build quality and the RGB are worth the extra 200. I was actually eyeing this a few months ago even when it was at 1799.

                                                                  Hope you clarify this.

                                                                    Hi! I don't know if this answer will help you, but here I go. The short answer is, the 1070 is the better deal to get. These cards run very similarly benchmarks wise, and after using both for a while, I actually returned the 2060 version because it was simply not good value. Now, the only thing that sets the 2060 apart is just the light rendering technology, which is relatively new. However, only like 4 games support it anyways, and so it really isn't of much use. Interestingly, I am getting on average slightly better frame rates with the with the 1070 playing titles such as Shadow of War, Battlefield, and Overwatch, which kind of surprised me. But all in all, if the RTX card is 500 bucks more than the GTX, then go for the GTX. Similar performance for a much better price.
