The latest 16-inch gaming laptop from Asus has been discounted to a more reasonable final price considering the GPU involved.
Allen Ngo,

Best Buy is currently selling the Asus Zephyrus M16 for $1199 USD or $250 off the original launch price of $1449. This particular laptop is notable for its 16:10 16-inch 144 Hz display with full sRGB coverage whereas most other gaming laptops are typically 15.6-inch or 17.3-inch instead. Thus, the 16-inch form factor may be perfect for those who prefer something in between the two usual sizes.

There is one significant drawback to keep in mind. The configuration from Best Buy comes with the mediocre GeForce RTX 3050 Ti GPU which is much slower than the more common RTX 3060. It is essentially on equal footing with the older and generally cheaper GTX 1660 Ti. Thus, users should only expect mid-range 1080p performance out of this system despite the fast CPU and sleek narrow-bezel design.

We recommend checking out our existing review on the Zephyrus M16. Our review configuration comes with the much faster RTX 3070 GPU and higher resolution 1600p panel instead of just the RTX 3050 Ti and 1200p panel, respectively, but its physical features are otherwise identical to the Best Buy unit.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
