Hey fellas, I'm a FIFO worker and need a 14 inch portable gaming laptop replacement for my older 14 inch laptop, I'm mostly using it to play CS:GO/COD and Netflix/movies. Settled on a ASUS Zephyrus G14 (2021) model with QHD 120Hz, 3070, 32GB RAM, but I can't seem find it in stock anywhere? I'm happy to wait 6 months or so as my current laptop isn't on its last legs yet. Happy to ship from overseas/USA too if cheaper.
I'm wanting the G14 QHD 1440p screen as it has a 9 ms response time, while the FHD 1080p has 20 ms or so response time, but happy to hear suggestions.
Contenders wise, I did consider the Razer Blade 14 (2021) as an option but seems like it has noisy fans even while web browsing which is a no no, and issues with battery bloat after a year or so. Suggestions are welcome cheers.
EDIT: August 2021 - Just an update after further research, I found PBtech selling the 2021 G14 with 3060, 32GB, 1TB SSD for a hefty A$3400, which I guess is the premium for being the only lightweight 1.7kg portable gaming laptop. However, the equivalent Razer Blade 14 with 3060 graphics is A$3100, which I would be better than the G14 given it has a webcam. The fact that the equivalent specc-ed Razer is cheaper is stopping me from pulling the trigger.
