    Just an FYI, ASUS actually DOES have a newer version of this laptop that's based on the DRAMATICALLY superior AMD Ryzen 5000 platform!(Aka 7nm Zen 3, or "Cézanne")

    It just has an evvver so slightly different name, with it instead being called the "ASUS ROG Zephyrus Pro Duo", as it's "technically" more focused at high end gamers (hence the ROG + Zephyrus branding) than the creative pro's the Intel model's focused at for whatever arbitrary reasons ASUS marketing executives pulled out of their butts (as the laptops as basically identical outside of the CPU platform & some changes to styling/aesthetics).

      As an owner of the last zen pro duo, one of the few downsides was the thunderbolt 3 plug was not directly connected to the GPU. Is this still the case in the newer model?

      Using the zen pro duo has been an absolute joy for audio engineering and working with DAWs. By far my favorite laptop.

        Still the same. HDMI is hooked into the dGPU, but USB-Cs are iGPU

    Dear Andrei,

    I hope that you and yours are well. Thank you for your insightful reviews especially on laptops. I also like the numerical scores as well as good and bad bullet points. I often rely on these aspects of the review to determine what I need in a laptop. That said, can you provide the top five highest scores you have given for laptops, in particular, Asus, Dell, and Lenovo?

    About what I am looking for: laptop with decent number of ports, USB-A, USB C, HDMI, Ethernet or TB, sturdy keyboard (as your reviews of Asus zenbooks), 15 inch screen for streaming, metal chassis, and good cooling system. I plan to use this for work with MS Word, excel, minor sound editing, and downloading files. I realized one cannot find a perfect laptop but something close to it would be great. Price range: $750-$1600 USD

    Thank you, gary
