The Zephyrus M16 from ASUS is a thin gaming laptop that features a 144Hz display, modern components, and an understated design. Let us find out how it performs in our review.
As you can see, the laptop has a very nice design. The aluminum chassis feels very high-quality and the entire construction of the product is sturdy enough for daily use as well as some serious gaming on the side. Owners of older laptops will immediately notice that this device does not have a fan exhaust on top – it gets rid of all its excess air through a grille at the back which itself has an attractive honeycomb pattern that stands out from other systems on the market. You also get three USB Type-C ports here which is quite impressive as most companies limit it to just one or two such ports as far as gamers are concerned (see Alienware m15, for example). Up to four M.2, SSDs can be installed in this laptop, but keep in mind that users will have to forgo storage space if they want an additional SSD for more games. That’s because the device only has one M.2 slot that is used for caching purposes, while it also has two 2.5-inch drive bays if you need tons of storage right away. The famous United States games
As far as connectivity goes, you get Intel Wireless AC 9462 with Bluetooth 5.0 here which is a solid option in 2019. However, some models might ship with Killer Wireless instead so make sure to double check what you are buying before making your purchase decision (if possible). The entire keyboard surface is RGB backlit and looks very nice during use in the dark (especially when combined with ASUS Aura software). However, the keyboard itself is not very good in terms of key travel and it feels a bit cheap for this price category. Finally, users can also swivel the screen by up to 90 degrees if they want to do some casual work with this thin-and-light laptop that easily fits in a backpack or a handbag after all.
In short, ASUS did an excellent job at building the ROG Zephyrus M16 here as it looks great, comes with modern components and has enough ports for owners of modern laptops. The battery life might be quite low though depending on your workload – make sure to check out our dedicated article on it if you are interested.
