Best for: Gamers who want excellent performance and strong battery life in one.
The best gaming laptop title usually goes to the most powerful gaming laptops, and that's understandable. But more modest gaming laptops like this Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 are arguably better for general use, as they not only deliver excellent gaming performance, but also have longer battery life and a lighter chassis.
The G14 laptop embodies all that and then some, with a great blend of performance and portability, a winning combination that helps make this model a good choice for students, too. Inside, this laptop has an AMD Ryzen 9 6900HS CPU with AMD Radeon 6700S graphics—an efficient pairing of powerful gaming components to enable AAA gameplay at high detail settings, and esports gaming at high frame rates and resolutions. The 2K display has a high 120Hz refresh rate, and a peak brightness of around 500 nits. At just 3.6 pounds, this is one of the lighter gaming laptops around.
