Reviews for the Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 GX650PZ

ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 (GX650, 2023) review – double the screen, double the fun
Source: Laptop Media English
The comfort under load depends on your work. In Silent mode, the two fans aren’t spinning until the CPU reaches a certain temperature. If you need the full power of the laptop, the Turbo mode is the way to go but the fans will punish your ears with 5000 RPM. In this preset, they are audible even in idle. On the other hand, the keyboard and the touchpad feel just a bit warm even when the CPU or the GPU are max stressed. Of course, the notebook isn’t perfect. We would like to see faster RAM and SSD considering the high price of this machine. Because of the dual-screen setup, the laptop is thick and heavy. The I/O features a lot of ports but it lacks a Thunderbolt 4 / USB4 connector. Last but not least, the battery life is short. Still, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 (GX650, 2023) offers two displays combined with perhaps the latest and greatest mobile tech on the market.

16.00":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
