Unboxing the ASUS ROG Zephyrus S

Want some serious gaming hardware on-the-go but don’t want something large and heavy to lug around? ASUS managed to do that with their ROG Zephyrus line of laptops and now, we have the latest one in our hands and it’s known as the ASUS ROG Zephyrus S gaming laptop.

There are two variants of the ASUS ROG Zephyrus S gaming laptop; one with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q and the other with the regular GTX 1060. The unit we have is the GTX 1060 variant but, it’s also worth noting that in Malaysia, only the GTX 1060 variant will be officially available.

Clearly, the folks over at ASUS are gearing up to fight against the ultra-thin MSI GS65 Stealth Thin 8RF gaming laptop with this one. This will prove to be an interesting laptop to review as our big boss Superdaddy is actually using that very same MSI laptop.
