    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.

      I have seen reviews, where the asus heats up more than the razer blade 15 and the msi gs65. What is your honest (unpaid) opinion?

    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.

    I used to have ROG G751JY ut was a great laptop but very heavy, i had a terrible time at the university so I bought Gx531 with 2070 max-q, this laptop is a super A+++, light , performance, and super good thermal it .

      @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.

        Which of these gaming laptops is better 1.Zephyrus S GX531 or 2.Helios 300(2019) considering both oh em r under 1400$

          DEEHAN XLR I’m asking this rn, they are both in my cart. The zephyrus comes with marginally better performance and storage out the gate but the Helios is good too. It’s a hard choice!

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

              • Praetor
                Praetor  1 месяцев назад

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

                  @Khelgar Ironfist at this price point, getting a premium gaming laptop is a really really big bonus. 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.

                  Khelgar Ironfist  1 месяцев назад

                  @Pranjal Samarth yep "gamery" looks of Helios always pushes me away from it.

                • Pranjal Samarth
                  Pranjal Samarth  1 месяцев назад

                  @Khelgar Ironfist if you're looking for purely gaming, then go for Helios. But I need something that is fairly portable and can be used as a workstation when I'm out in classes or work. Plus, it just looks really good. :P

                      Hello sir, great review 🔥
                      I'm really confused right now as this laptop (zephyrus s) is now available for 1400 usd and is this a good choice against the rtx 2060 variant of zephyrus m gu502gv (priced at 1900 usd) or the 2060 variant of strix scar III (priced at 1799 usd)
                      Hope you clarify this.
                      Thanks in advance 💙

                        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.

                                                  It has the power, but if you would be working with video, keep in mind it only has a 512GB SSD for storage and no bay for a second drive.

                                                          A lot of reviews on Amazon say this laptop has screen bleeding issues?

Like I said before, the screen has to be black, you have to be in a dark room, and you have to crank the brightness for it to even be visible. And even then you really have to look for it. I do have to warn you though, I don't know if this varies from unit to unit.

                                                            @KesslerE wouldn't consider it to be effect gameplay at all?

                                                            I have one. You can only really see it when the screen in completely black, and you're in a dark room. Even then it isn't bad at all, so I wouldn't worry too much.
