Asus ROG Zephyrus M15 (GU502LW) Review

 

Sleek, lightweight design ; Better-than-60fps performance in AAA games ; Potent enough to take advantage of its 240Hz display in competitive multiplayer titles ; 1TB SSD in test model ; Solid port selection ; Long battery life

No webcam ; Key backlighting is only single-zone

Boasting a trim design, high-end performance across a variety of games, and useful extra features, the Asus ROG Zephyrus M15 is an appealing 15-inch gaming laptop with few weak points at a fair price.

Asus ROG Zephyrus M (GU502GV) Review

 

Asus' ROG Zephyrus line, launched with this 2017 release, represents the company's best thin-and-light gaming laptops. The family has grown to include 17-inch options, as well as higher-end and entry-level alternatives. The ROG Zephyrus M GU502GV...

Sturdy build, yet thin and light. High-quality keyboard with per-key backlighting. 1TB SSD.

Underwhelming performance for the price. Hardware can't make great use of 144Hz display.

The trim, light Asus ROG Zephyrus M (GU502GV) is a solid-enough gaming laptop all around, but for the price and performance as tested in our RTX 2060 config, it's not the top value we've seen.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus M GM501GS laptop review: Premium build, awkward design

 

It's a good device, but it doesn't manage to walk the fine line between portability and performance.

Great build quality ; Exceptional display

Price ; Value for money ; Bulky

The Zephyrus M is an odd device. It’s powerful but not as powerful as its bulkier counterparts. It’s slim, but, you can get similar specs, and performance, in a slimmer form factor.

Asus ROG Zephyrus M15 (GU502) Review: Solid, but Outshined by AMD

 

An understated design with high temps

Decent gaming performance for the price ; Attractive understated design ; Resists fingerprints and smudges well

Slightly smaller AMD-based G14 performs better and gets better battery life ; No webcam ; Single-zone RGB keyboard

Asus’ ROG Zephyrus M15 is a mostly pleasing mainstream gaming laptop. But high temps and better performance from Asus’ own 14-inch AMD-powered G14 make this model M tough to recommend.

Supremely comfortable keyboard ; Impressive overall performance ; Lightweight construction

The Asus ROG Zephyrus M GU502 offers fine performance using Intel's latest 9th Gen chip, a comfortable keyboard, and a lightweight construction along with quite a bit of heat and noise. You can't go wrong with it.
