Source: Unbox English version
We know that some of you might be saying that the Php 129,995 price tag is steep and that you can build a rig that’s just as powerful for cheaper with all the bells and whistles but what you’re paying for here is all the engineering to make sure everything runs smoothly on a gaming notebook that’s thinner than most out in the market.

The Asus Zephyrus S GX531GM-ES037T is a slim gaming laptop of the ROG ZEPHYRUS series which has redefined the category of ultra-slim gaming notebooks. The ZEPHYRUS S is precision-machined from metal and highly robust. It is 2100g light and measures just 15.75 mm at its thickest point. This makes it the most mobile ROG gaming notebook ever.  The Asus Zephyrus S GX531GM-ES037T takes off with the GeForce RTX™ 2080 featuring Max-Q Design, the Core i7 8750H/2.2GHz, Win 10 Home 64-Bit, 16 GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD NVMe and its frameless 144Hz/3ms NanoEdge display, innovative AAS cooling system, state-of-the-art hardware and advanced design standards. The exclusive ROG Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) automatically raises the rear of the chassis by 5 mm when the display is opened. Combined with the special fans, five heat pipes, four copper heatsinks and a self-cleaning feature, it delivers high-performance cooling with efficient heat dissipation, optimized ventilation and a 22% larger cooling circuit compared to traditional cooling solutions. The ROG Zephyrus S passed strict internal quality checks, including several drops from a height of 76 cm. This makes it durable enough to deal with everyday hazards. It also meets the demanding MIL-STD-810G standards for withstanding vibration, shock, height and extreme environmental conditions.

Aura Sync allows users to customize the gaming keyboard of the ZEPHYRUS S with different RGB lighting effects. In addition, the area of ​​the AAS cooling system can be freely illuminated. With Aura Sync, a user can also synchronize compatible ROG gaming equipment, from the mouse to the headset, and the colour matches them perfectly. The 15.6" wide-view NanoEdge display lets users fully immerse themselves, and with maximum speed at that, because the ZEPHYRUS S has integrated an extremely responsive IPS-based panel. With a 144Hz refresh rate, 3ms response time and 100% sRGB, each game is rendered smoother, more delay-free, more realistic and simply better. To enhance games and entertainment sound, the ZEPHYRUS S has a powerful stereo sound with Smart AMP technology. The audio system allows for sound reproduction with richer bass, a higher dynamic range and high volume. Possible damage to the speakers due to overheating or overloading is automatically prevented. The ZEPHYRUS S provides a total of five USB ports, including the fast USB-3.1 Gen-2 Type-C, all the options to connect gaming equipment, peripherals or external storage media. And with the back HDMI-2.0 port, users can enjoy their games on a compatible TV or an external monitor in 4K/60Hz. In conclusion, the Asus Zephyrus S GX531GM-ES037T is a powerful but very slim gaming laptop. It is suitable for gamers who are looking for the slimmest gaming laptop on the market to bring on the go.
