Asus made significant improvements in the 2023 ROG Zephyrus M16 (GU604) thin and light gaming premium laptop. The metal clad laptop is less of a fingerprint magnet, it has improve cooling and is quieter. It has an Intel Core i9-13900H CPU and your choice of an NVIDIA RTX 4070, 4080 (our unit) or 4090 GPU. In the US, all but the base model have a striking QHD+ mini LED display with 1,000 local dimming zones and an HDR 1000 rating. The design is low key with little bling, there’s a single zone RGB keyboard, windows Hello 1080p IR camera, and Thunderbolt 4. It competes with (but is considerably less expensive than) the Razer Blade 16. It also competes with the Lenovo Legion 7i Gen 8 and is a roomier and higher watt alternative to the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
