ROG Zephyrus S GX502 Review PH
Our Verdict
The compact nature seems to limit both the CPU and GPU yet ASUS still managed to enable both hardware and even injects cherry-on-top features such as a 240Hz panel with G-Sync support. All the features that seem impractical for a gaming laptop to have are actually what makes the ROG Zephyrus S GX502 a suitable desktop replacement. At a price of Php 129,995 for the RTX 2060 and Php 159,995 for the RTX 2070 variant, the Zephyrus GX502 gaming laptop is not for everyone. But what you're getting is simply one of the best thin-and-light gaming laptops available in the market.
