Deal | Own one of the fastest 14-inch laptops for $1200 USD through this Asus Zephyrus G14 sale
Best Buy is currently running a sale on the 14-inch Asus Zephyrus G14 gaming laptop for $350 USD off the original launch price. The sale is notable because this is the latest version of the model with an AMD Zen 3 CPU and Nvidia Ampere GPU instead of the original first generation model with the older Zen 2 CPU and Nvidia Turing GPU.
Highlights of the deal include the high-end specifications relative to the sale price. Users are getting the Ryzen 9 5900HS which is one of the fastest mobile processors available on any laptop and not just for a 14-inch form factor. Meanwhile, the FreeSync display supports both a native 144 Hz refresh rate and 100 percent sRGB coverage for both gaming and professional editing purposes. The GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q GPU is also nothing to laugh at especially when compared to other 14-inch laptops.
Drawbacks include the lack of Thunderbolt support and per-key RGB lighting. Its closest competitor, the Razer Blade 14, is also a thinner system with very similar AMD CPU and Nvidia GPU options. For $1200 USD, however, this Zephyrus G14 deal is probably one of the best options available for those who want to maximize performance from a 14-inch form factor without spending $1500 or more.
