Achieve great photo editing results with the ROG Zephyrus from Asus . It comes with a large NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q storage capacity for any pictures you keep on locally on the laptop.

Gaming

Basic games might need more than basic hardware. The ROG Zephyrus is a good choice for casual gamers, offering enough CPU power, RAM and storage to get the job done – hardcore gamers may need something a little meatier though.

Light, portable, and full-featured, the ROG Zephyrus is ideal for carrying between offices and libraries. You’ll have all the tools you need to research and write outstanding research papers and theses.

Videos for fun

In addition, this laptop can be used night or day thanks to the built in back-lit keyboard.

Music and Audio

Developing your own tunes and mixes is important to you, so we've recommended a laptop that has got an advanced audio system on-board with HD sound capabilities.

The presence of a 4 cores core process will help speed up music format conversions or codec-based compression.

Book keeping

Managing finances has never been simpler. The ROG Zephyrus has enough processing power to manage even the largest spreadsheets. And the inclusion of a 1 makes typing and updating numbers even easier.

Can handle UI Dev & Design work

With a 8914 CPU and 16 GB of RAM, the ROG Zephyrus is ideal for front-end development. Whether you’re coding basic HTML5, or working with more complex JavaScript frameworks, this laptop has everything you need.

Can handle a Full-Stack Coding Environment

You'll need a machine that can handle multiple VMs for your various Dev environments, which is why we've picked something for you that's got an Intel Core i7-7700HQ , (a processor with 4 cores) plus a healthy RAM size of 16 GB.

Also, its 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution provides adequate screen estate to view multiple window or more of your IDE while you work.

Regular Stuff / Everyday Tasks

Spreadsheets, presentations and documents, are relatively undemanding, but the Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor and 16 GB RAM ensures even image laden files won't leave you watching the 'spinning wheel' on the ROG Zephyrus

Surf comfortably as all components of your Asus will easily handle the web

Email demands very little from a laptop. We've taken this into account.

Facebook, twitter etc require little processing power or screen specification so the ROG Zephyrus will do just fine.

Suits your occasional mobility

The ROG Zephyrus is a great choice for when you need a good value, reliable laptop that won't be carried around too often. It’s not the smallest or lightest, however the 5 lbs weight is enough to get the job done.
