The updated version of the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 GA401 impresses us just like the 2020 variant. The new iteration has a lot to offer – it looks good – not too gamer-ish and that’s why you can use it for office purposes as well without being distracted by hundreds of glowing RGBs. Moreover, the device is compact and light as well which contributes to good portability and it’ll fit in most backpacks. The ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 GA401 looks and feels like a modern compact versatile machine and it really is. Despite its premium look and build, the device is loud during heavy loads and its shell isn’t too cool in this situation. We don’t like the absence of Thunderbolt support – a premium device like this should offer an extra like that. Ok, we’ll not complain too much about the lack of an SD card reader. Despite the abovementioned cons, this 14-inch gaming laptop remains one of the best offers on the market and if you’re on the hunt for a powerful, compact, and light gaming laptop you can shortlist it.

Yes, the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 is a great buy, even a better one than its older 2020 variant. However, that is if you can ignore the few pitfalls like the lack of an ethernet port, and a webcam, which may not matter to a lot of gamers, but could be important for those planning to use the laptop for office-work and Zoom calls. If these elements aren’t as important to you, the Zephyrus G14 2021 is a solid recommendation.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
