One of the best things about this machine is its cooling. It can take all of the abuse even from the top-tier spec. Although the one we tested was not the top model, it clearly shows how well this system works. With three fans and liquid metal, it is one of the more revolutionary designs out there. It is going to be interesting how it will compare to some vapor chamber solutions out there. Despite the very powerful hardware, the ASUS ROG Strix G18 (G814, 2023) has a good battery life. It lasts up to 10 hours of light use. This is commendable, considering the fact that the HX-series of Intel CPUs have a 55W TDP – higher than any consumer laptop processor out there. To accommodate the great cooling, and the large display, ASUS has made the laptop a bit heavy and clunky. Its thickness reaches about 30mm, while the weight is set in stone at 3.00 kg.

18.00": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
