Acer Swift X 14

It inevitably gained’t be a gaming monster however if you’d like a stability of portability, type and energy, it seems prefer it ought to ship the items.
Asus Zephyrus G16 and G14
We couldn’t not embody each new variants of Asus’ slim and trendy gaming laptop computer line, the Zephyrus G16 and G14. The bigger 16-inch G16 is an absolute marvel of engineering.

You in fact get a beautiful 2.5K decision OLED display and regardless of the slimness, the construct high quality is top-notch with a great-feeling keyboard and trackpad.
