Bottom Line

The ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 is a thin and light gaming laptop that can handle anything that you can throw at it. Don’t be scared off by the new keyboard layout, it is far better for hardcore gamers.

The ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501VI-XS74 is a bestselling premium gaming laptop that has received positive reviews for its thin and light design, powerful hardware and for its dedicated GTX 1080 graphics card. However, some reviewers have mentioned the fact that the laptop will heat up while you game or run intensive applications. The new keyboard layout might scare off some users, but it’s a far better layout for gaming than traditional keyboards.
