Asus has once again managed to have the slimmest device. For now. This time it is the ROG Zephyrus GX501 gaming laptop. Despite its height of just 17.9 millimeters (~0.7 in), the 15-inch notebook is shipped with an Intel Core i7-7700HQ quad-core CPU and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q with the brand-new “Max-Q” design. We have already had the chance to review the ultra-slim gamer. How slim should gaming laptops be? The answer seems to be simple: As slim as possible. Who wants to carry around a bulky machine? But: How slim can gaming notebooks be? Obviously less than 18 millimeters (~0.7 in) right now, despite high-end components with Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU and GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q graphics card. Great, top-notch performance in an attractive super-slim chassis.
