    Asus ROG Zephyrus M15

    Towards the end of last year, Asus had a chance to renew its line of gaming laptops . At that time, the company updated its Asus ROG line up with Intel's latest processors, namely Intel Core 10th Gen.

    The one that got the update is the ROG Zephyrus M15 GU520LU model. This laptop comes with an Intel Core i7-10750H, GeForce GTX 1660Ti, 16GB DDR4-3200 RAM, and 1TB NVMe SSD.

    also had the opportunity to try out this laptop for some time. For Indonesia itself, Asus sells this laptop at a price of IDR 25 million.

    So, what kind of experience does this laptop give? Here's a brief review of the ROG Zephyrus M15.

    Design

    ROG Zephryus M15 has a metal body and for the front uses aluminum. There is a distinctive ROG logo on the front body, but it is not accompanied by RGB lighting.

    This design must be admitted to make the ROG Zephyrus M15 display less striking as a gaming laptop. In fact, we feel the appearance of this laptop tends to be elegant.  

    Turning to the keyboard , Asus does not include numeric keys. Just like most gaming laptops , this ROG Zephyrus M15 keyboard comes with LED backlit.

    ROG Zephyrus M15 has a 15.6-inch screen with 240Hz refresh rate support . This laptop screen also has thin bezels, both on the right and left, including the top.

    Unfortunately, the Taiwanese company did not include a webcam on this laptop. Another interesting thing about this laptop is that it weighs less than 2 kg, 1.9 kg to be exact.

    With this weight, the ROG Zephyrus M15 must be admittedly quite portable for a gaming laptop . Therefore, we feel that this laptop can support user mobility.

    For connectivity matters, this laptop offers a fairly complete port . There is an audio jack of 3.5 mm, ports USB 3.2, port HDMI, ethernet, and a port for charging.

    Performance

    As per its category as a gaming laptop , the first thing we try to find out its performance is playing games. As a result, we feel that this laptop is capable of serving a variety of games well.

    We tried playing several game titles on this laptop, such as Apex Legends, Injustice 2, FIFA 21, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

    After trying it out, we felt that this laptop was able to do all the games well. We feel there are no significant problems, including when trying it with high graphic settings.

    We also tried it to watch multimedia content through a streaming platform , and the results were satisfactory. Moreover, the audio output is quite fast, plus a high-resolution screen.

    To illustrate, this laptop managed to record an overall score of 5,509 with the Time Spy test at 3DMark. While the graphics test score was 5,730, and the CPU recorded 4,525. 

    In that test, the laptop's performance is also estimated to be able to play the Apex Legends game at 70 fps, while Battlefield V is 60 fps. 

    Given that during this pandemic there was a recommendation to work from home, this ROG Zephyrus M15 could also be a mainstay. The need for productivity can be overcome very well.

    Its weight is not too heavy, it must be admitted that it makes it easier for us if we want to change places of work.

    The ability of the battery is also good, when used for working on documents or just browsing , this laptop can last about 8 hours.

    However, the absence of an internal webcam is a minus of this laptop. Given that in the current pandemic era, video conferencing activities are increasingly being carried out, so an external webcam is a must.

    Conclusion

    Overall, the Asus ROG Zephyrus M15 can be said to be a versatile gaming laptop . 

    This is not without reason, considering that this laptop is able to offer high game performance, but also supports the daily productivity needs of its users. 

    Its light weight plus a sleek design and not too flashy as a gaming laptop , in our opinion, is a plus in itself.

    In contrast to gaming laptops that are synonymous with large and heavy bodies. The ability of the battery is also quite good to support user activities.

    Only the absence of an internal webcam, we admit that we have to slightly reduce the function of this laptop to support productivity. Although this can be circumvented by using an external webcam.

    For that, we feel this laptop can be an option for those of you who often play games and want a great experience, but don't want to miss the productivity and portability side.
