    Asus ROG Strix SCAR 18 Review (14th Gen, 2024)

    If you wanted the most powerful laptop in 2023, then you essentially had the choice of several ROG Strix SCAR laptops, several of which are still on sale. Now, here’s the 14th-Gen Intel-wielding, 2024 model of the massive Asus ROG Strix SCAR 18 – ROG’s standard-bearing gaming laptop. We expect great things from this beast…


  • Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 review (2024)

    Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 review (2024)

    In the world of High Performance Laptops, the Asus’ ROG Zephyrus range is always popular. It’s Asus’ version of the do-it-all laptop that’s portable, can fit into an office environment and also be used to own the show at a gaming LAN. We got our hands on the 2024 edition of the Asus ROG Zephyrus…


  • Asus Zenbook 14 OLED review (2024)

    Asus Zenbook 14 OLED review (2024)

    Asus’ Zenbooks have been knocking it out of the park in recent times. Their ability to meld great build quality, excellent ergonomics, decent power and great value into a highly portable chassis has been remarkable. Now, here’s the AMD-based Asus Zenbook 14 OLED which, at first glance, looks like it’s going to follow suit. Just…


  • Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED review

    Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED review

    A load of laptops from Asus turned up and the smallest one was the Asus Zenbook S 13. It’s one of the smallest laptops we’ve seen in ages and yet it’s got an impressively high spec. It’s also made from a new, eco-friendly material which seems to be the strongest and lightest we’ve ever seen…


  • Asus Vivobook Pro 16X OLED review

    Asus Vivobook Pro 16X OLED review

    We were a little disappointed when we reviewed the last generation Asus Vivobook 16X OLED as we felt corners had been cut and that a potentially very good creator laptop could have been significantly better. However, a quick glance of the specs of the latest Asus Vivobook Pro 16X OLED suggests to us that all…


  • Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 review (2023)

    Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 review (2023)

    Previous iterations of the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 have been among our favourite laptops, ever. They’re genuine, ultraportable gaming laptops that have the most head-turning looks on the market. However, they’ve also previously come with foibles like volcanic heat that toasts your unmentionables and noisy fans that forlornly try to cool everything down. In 2023,…


  • Asus Vivobook S 14 review

    Asus Vivobook S 14 review

    Asus’ Vivobooks have impressed us with their great ergonomics and value over the past year. Now, here’s the Intel Evo-certified ‘S’ model which promises more high-value performance and usability for SOHO users and creators. Will it be your next notebook? Our Asus Vivobook S 14 review will spill the beans. Specs Screen 14.5-inch, matte, 60Hz,…


  • Asus Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED review (UX8402) 2023

    Asus Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED review (UX8402) 2023

    In the world of bonkers Asus’ engineering exercises, the fact that the Evo-certified, Asus Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED still exists, is noteworthy. Many such exercises fail shortly after leaving Asus’ Squid-Gamean survival-of-the-fittest SkunkWorks labs – even the revolutionary Netbook didn’t last long. But, here is the Duo’s next evolution – all updated and refreshed…


  • Asus Expertbook B5 review (2023)

    Asus Expertbook B5 review (2023)

    We’ve been enormously impressed with Asus’ Expertbook laptops in the past. They’ve been incredibly well made and impressively portable. This 16-inch version promises more of the same and we only had to pick it up to see that it could be yet another winner. So, will our Asus Expertbook B5 review show that this is…


  • Asus ROG Strix SCAR 17 review (AMD | 2023)

    Asus ROG Strix SCAR 17 review (AMD | 2023)

    We like a good Asus ROG Strix SCAR 17 at High Performance Laptops. They have a habit of redefining the industry with their absolutely massive leaps in performance. This particular model arrives after we’ve reviewed some of the latest and greatest rivals (including it’s Intel-based, 2022-model, 17-inch predecessor and new 18-inch siblings). This model eschews…


  • Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED review

    Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED review

    What do you call a laptop with no keyboard? It sounds like the set-up to a joke but the actual answer is a tablet and yet the Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED is indeed a laptop with no keyboard – so long as you ignore the separate, Bluetooth keyboard that comes with it. WTF are…


  • Asus ROG Strix SCAR 18 review (2023)

    Asus ROG Strix SCAR 18 review (2023)

    We’ve only just reviewed (and been blown away by) Aussie independent laptop manufacturer Pioneer and it’s monstrous DreamBook Power X370 RTX which had a full complement of top-tier tech. Now, here’s Asus’ rival flagship, the ROG Strix SCAR 18. For the past two years, its predecessors have reached the top of our Best Laptop list.…


  • Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 review

    Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 review

    Asus’s Zephyrus range has been one of our favourites since it first appeared. Its aim is to be sleek, powerful and portable and many models, over the years have succeeded in these aims. However, now we have 2023’s Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 which, at first glance, is a bit of a 16-inch chonk. How good…


  • Asus Zenbook 14 OLED review (2023)

    Asus Zenbook 14 OLED review (2023)

    Asus’ Zenbooks have been impressing the pants off us lately. They might not excel at all tasks, but they are phenomenal, all-rounders that will suit many tasks. We reviewed the 14’s sibling, the Zenbook 14X, last year and it had more bells and whistles – like an OLED trackpad. But that’s overkill for some and…


  • Asus Zenbook Pro 16X OLED review

    Asus Zenbook Pro 16X OLED review

    The Asus Zenbook Pro 16X OLED is part of Asus’ ProArt line for Creators. It’s not cheap, but it’s powerful and properly packed full of features. There’s also a gamer-friendly GPU in there. Can it be all things to all people? Specs of the Asus Zenbook Pro 16X OLED Screen 16-inch, glossy, 60Hz, 3,840 x…


  • Asus ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE review

    Asus ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE review

    We reviewed our last ROG Strix almost a year ago and absolutely loved it. Remarkably, you can still buy it at a bargain price and it’s still well worth considering. It even still sits on our Best Laptop list… that’s incredible! Well, now here’s it’s big, new sibling, the Asus ROG Strix SCAR 17 SE.…


  • Asus ZenBook 14X OLED review

    Asus ZenBook 14X OLED review

    We like a well-made ultraportable almost as much as an innovative Asus science experiment. Well the Asus Zenbook 14X OLED ticks both boxes and chucks in an OLED screen to boot. It was announced back in August and not our review unit is here. Let’s see how it went. UPDATE: Check out our 12th Gen…


  • Asus ROG Flow Z13 review (GZ301Z)

    Asus ROG Flow Z13 review (GZ301Z)

    Asus likes pushing boundaries and the ROG Flow GZ13 is another of it’s, ‘I can’t believe they invented it’ models. Should people want a convertible tablet, with an RGB, ‘soft’ keyboard, that’s built for gaming? Let’s find out. Asus Rog Flow Z13 specs 13.4-inch, glossy, 120Hz, 1920 x 1200, IPS, touchscreen display; 3.8-5GHz Intel Core…


  • Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 review (2022)

    Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 review (2022)

    Last year we declared the Zephyrus G15 to be the best laptop we’d ever seen. It was borderline ultraportable and yet one of the very best high-performance gaming laptops we’d ever seen. Now here’s the latest Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 and, on the surface it looks similar despite being an inch smaller. This partly puts…


  • Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED review (M3500QA)

    Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED review (M3500QA)

    A few months ago we were impressed with the 16-inch Asus Vivobook 16X OLED Creator laptop. It was most notable for having some funky design flourishes and sumptuous OLED screen. Now here’s the (marginally) smaller, 15.6-inch Asus Vivobook Pro 15 OLED laptop which offers less power and a (much) lower price but keeps the OLED…
