Just three weeks after the AI-equipped Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 model launched on June 3, it's 6-month-old predecessor received a discount on Best Buy. You can get the Asus ROG Zephyrus G16 (2024) at Best Buy for $1,599.99 (was $1,999.99).

It's hard to argue with a deal that nearly discounts the new model down to the old one's standard price. This model upgrades the 2023 model with new features like an OLED screen, Intel Core Ultra 9 Series CPU, and slightly better GPU. 

This is one of the cheapest sales for this model yet, so it's worth buying for people who want a gaming laptop upgrade right now. It's also cheaper than many of its rivals currently due to today's sale; offering high-end specs at a price closer to mid-range models.

The new Asus ROG Zephyrus G16's biggest upgrades are its OLED screen and Intel Core Ultra 9 Series CPU. Now more than ever, colors should pop on the 16-inch QHD screen with little to no lag thanks to the 240Hz refresh rate. It also upgrades the Nvidia RTX 4060 from the older model to a 4070. All that for the price of the older outgoing model is a steal.

The 2024 Zephyrus G16 upgrades the 16-inch screen to QHD OLED, with support for up to 2560x1600 resolution plus more precise, brighter colors. Its Nvidia RTX 4070 GPU is a level above the previous G16's RTX 4060 - not a huge jump but still a decent improvement for playing games at higher resolution. It also boasts a 240Hz refresh rate, runs on 16 GB of RAM, and includes 1TB of storage. All these features come together so that users don't need to worry as much about lag, multitasking, and saving space.
