ASUS' new ROG Zephyrus G14 is now listed at Best Buy (opens in new tab), giving us our first indication of U.S. pricing for the powerful gaming laptop. Though it's not on sale just yet, Best Buy has this particular model listed at $1,450. For the money, you're getting some of the Zephyrus G14's top specs, too.

The configuration shown on Best Buy's online store comes packed with a third-generation AMD Ryzen 9-4900HS processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q graphics. Those are both at the top end of what ASUS offers with the Zephyrus G14. In addition, you'll get 16GB of RAM and 1TB of SSD storage space.

This model also opts for the 1080p variant of the 14-inch display, though it's unclear if this is the 60Hz or 120Hz panel.

Once the ROG Zephyrus G14 is available, you'll be able to snatch one up in several different configurations. Here's a full look at the specs ASUS will offer on the laptop.

In his initial preview of the ASUS OG Zephyrus G14, Windows Central executive editor Daniel Rubino came away pretty impressed. The combination of AMD's latest mobile chips and NVIDIA's RTX graphics made it a powerful contender in our benchmark tests. A full review is still forthcoming.

Presumably, the ROG Zephyrus G14 will hit other retailers in the coming weeks. For now, however, you can keep an eye on Best Buy (opens in new tab) if you're looking to pick one up.
