The ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 is, once again, a part of our deals, but here is a little something special for you, and no, we are not referring to the RTX 3080, though it is impressive how the company managed to cram in a powerful GPU in the chassis this thin. The surprise here is that the gaming laptop is equipped with 40GB DDR4 RAM and a whopping 4TB SSD (in 2TB + 2TB configurations), all for the price of $2,199.99 on Amazon.
Now, it is understandable if you find the asking price a little ridiculous, but when you take into account the RAM and storage upgrades, you will eventually be convinced that this purchase will be worth it. Aside from that, you get the best of what the Zephyrus G15 has to offer, including that magnesium alloy chassis that makes the gaming laptop sturdy and lightweight at the same time.
The 15.6-inch QHD panel with a 165Hz refresh rate is the absolute sweet spot for gaming and will definitely allow the RTX 3080 GPU and its 8GB frame buffer to stretch its legs properly. The CPU that is a part of the package is a Ryzen 9 5900HS, which features eight cores and 16 threads, running up to a speed of 4.60GHz when required.
The battery is also a large 90WHr cell, and given that the Zephyrus G15 is equipped with an AMD Ryzen CPU, you will get several hours away from the wall. You can charge the gaming laptop using the included barrel connector or through the machine’s USB-C port, though keep in mind that the latter cannot deliver maximum wattage to the G15, so do not use it while gaming. Instead, use the included adapter to get the most gaming performance.
In terms of other ports, you get a decent assortment, including a microSD card slot, HDMI 2.1, a couple of USB-A ports, and more. Since the gaming laptop has been upgraded for you, it will be unnecessary to purchase RAM and storage down the road, which can be slightly intimidating, especially when there are a multitude of options available on Amazon and so little time. The one thing you likely get over is the pricing, and seeing as how more and more games require a chunk load of memory and storage, these additions were necessary.
