The Asus ROG Zephyrus S Ultra Slim isn’t just the best laptop for Roblox, but also an ideal machine for playing the latest and greatest titles, like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and the recently released Cyberpunk 2077. The magic relies on its amazing NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070, a beefy graphics card that’s required to play great titles on high settings.

Why We Like It – Asus ROG Zephyrus S Ultra Slim

Asking if the Asus ROG Zephyrys S Ultra Slim if it can run Roblox is like asking if a bird can fly. In other words: yes, all thanks to a beefy RTX 2070, 16GB of RAM, and an Intel Core i7.

  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 (Max Q design)
  • Great build quality
  • 16GB RAM w/ Intel Core i7
  • Overkill performance for Roblox
  • Expensive

Performance & Battery

The Asus ROG Zephyrus S Ultra Slim is a monster of a gaming laptop, eating up PC requirements for breakfast thanks to its impressive NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 and Intel Core i7-9750H backing it up with 16GB of DDR4 RAM and 144Hz refresh rate, a massive leap above the Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Gaming Laptop. Those kinds of resources can not only play Roblox on high quality, but also titles such as Cyberpunk 2077. Unfortunately, the battery life is just under 4 hours. Not terrible, but not good either.

Ports, Expandability & Build Quality

With a military-grade magnesium alloy body, reinforced with a metal covering, the Asus ROG Zephyrus S Ultra Slim is one tough machine. It has RGB (adjustable via Armoury Crate) on the keyboard, which has Aura Sync for improved key input. There’s a 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD, which is expandable as is the RAM up to 24GB. You’ll get a variety of modern ports such as: USB Type C, like USB 3.1 Gen 2 and Gen 1, and Type-A USB 3.1 Gen 2 and USB 2.0.


Having an RTX 2070 and gen Intel Core i7 processor is overkill and can actually play new titles such as Cyberpunk 2077. This is a high end gaming laptop after all. Spending $1700 on a laptop just to play Roblox is counterintuitive. If budget is a concern, then the Lenovo L340 i5 and Asus FX504 are both wonderful alternatives for half the price. Pick this up if you have every intention of exploring graphically intensive titles and perhaps a larger PCIe SSD.

Asus ROG Zephyrus S Ultra Slim Wrap Up

To buy an Asus ROG Zephyrus S Ultra Slim for just Roblox would be silly and expensive; its price is only justifiable if you’re exploring the latest and greatest titles, too. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 is rated to run Cyberpunk 2077, which is far more graphically intensive than Roblox. However, we’d be lying if we said this wasn’t your best option, albeit an expensive one.
