Reviews for the Asus Zephyrus M15 GU502LWS

80% Asus ROG Zephyrus M15 (GU502LW)
Source: PC Mag English
The Asus Zephyrus M15 is a very appealing laptop with few weak points. It's not the most affordable rig, but many more expensive machines have crossed our testing benches lately, putting it firmly in the midrange. It provides a totally fair deal for the cost. You may prefer a metal build, the Max-Q version of the RTX 2070 doesn't stand far above rivals, and there's no webcam. But those are mostly nitpicks.

The Asus Zephyrus M’s lighter and thinner overall structure does not undermine the excellence of its true actual performance. With Windows 10 Pro as its base operating system, the performance rate of the Asus Zephyrus M GU502 is further established and amplified through the integration of powerful 9th generation Intel Core processors paired with NVIDIA GeForce 1660Ti graphics unit. The NVIDIA GeForce 1660Ti graphics processing unit can achieve up to a shocking 1,425 MHz at 90 W upon the activation of Turbo mode. These powerhouse components are further accompanied and bolstered by the vastness in memory up to 32 GB of DDR4-2666 RAM as well as 1 TB of superfast RAID 0 SSD storage. These set of equipment highly suggests to the fact that any potential lethargy or sluggishness in performance when operating the Asus Zephyrus M (GU502) with burdensome tasks are almost non-existent. With plenty of ample memory space for the processors to navigate and operate through, the Asus Zephyrus M GU502 can easily handle any task that is thrown at its way. In terms of design, a gaming themed aesthetic is adopted in order to further highlight the identity of the Asus Zephyrus M GU502 laptop model. The design of the keyboard distinguishes the Asus Zephyrus M from other existing gaming laptops. For instance, the function keys are spaced and categorized into a certain area for ease of identification whereas hotkeys commonly referred are easily within reach. The key controls on the keyboard can be highlighted with LED backlight, which can be personally configured for ease of reference and compatibility depending on the game title or task at hand. This inclusion of personal customization can potentially improve the quality of life for users who consistently boot up the same program over the days of the week.
