      well if you are talking about this version of zephrus:
      https://www.newegg.com/metallic-blac...-189-_-Product

      then its better than HERO III in these departments:
      its GPU is better than HERO III but i think the difference in price is not worth it specially if you are not hardcore pc gamer and most of the games are playable on high settings on HERO III Laptop. still this is the only major difference between both.
      second is the storage amount, HERO III come with 512gb ssd+ 1tb hdd while this comes with 1tb ssd but i don't think its really worth it since you can install windows/games/etc in 512gb easily and rest in the hdd.
      third is the ram difference which is 32gb while hero iii has 16gb but i really don't think you need 32gb ram ATM

      both of the laptop have similar cpu and many more similarities like you should read its review here:
      https://www.notebookcheck.net/Asus-R....410959.0.html

      now if we look at the price difference there is a difference of 1000$$$ and i don't think its worth it so think about it and once again don't look at the models, look at the competition these companies have and what they are going to offer you

      @sunny945 that is a rasonable debate that the 1000$ overprice does not justify the upgraded ram and some other aspects of the zyperhus yes. hmm. but than again perhaps future proofing it with additional ram as perhaps it wont allow to upgrade later maybe

      what about the changing parts for laptop ? can we replace gpu and or ram etc later on from any of these models if required ? usually ram is changeable in laptops but not all allow that too.

      you can't change a laptop GPU.
      regarding RAM and HDD you can update later whenever you want.
      regarding future proof, i think you may not need to change ram. even if you need, the ram can be upgraded easily.
      hdd can also be replaced.
      the good thing about Hero III or similar laptops is that those laptops have 9th gen 6-core processors which means you are getting the latest series processors in very good price.

      Now if we talk about future proof, i think its not possible to purchase something futureproof at this time when latest gpus and cpus and ssds and other technologies are releasing rapidly.
      most of the times you want to have a better cpu and gpu in your laptop because other parts are usually replaceable so getting a core i7-9th gen 6-core cpu is great idea else core-i9 cpus are very expensive and i don't think you can purchase core-i9 laptop in your budget.
      finally for gpu 2 top gpus for laptops are rtx 2080 and rtx 2070. i think in your budget you can easily purchase rtx 2070 gpu but it will be hard to find a rtx 2080 laptop in your budget. take a look at the review of the laptop even rtx 2080 is not competitive for some games in 4k.

      You can actually change the GPU in certain laptops, although, off the top of my head I can only think of the Alienware 51m that allows that for now. The design is basically similar to the old MXM cards that were present in older laptops. The thing is, these modules are really expensive and, honestly their availability will be dependent upon the manufacturer. The more affordable and practical solution would be to go down the eGPU route where you can plug in an enclosure, pop in a full fat GPU, and continue playing whatever it is that you want.

      When it comes to enclosures you have two major options, the ones that are based on TB3 and then Alienware's solution which uses a proprietary connection. Multiple tests have shown that the Alienware graphics amplifier is able provide a significant increase in performance compared to the TB3 enclosures, with the downside that you have to buy an alienware laptop and TBH, there comes a point when you're just splitting hairs chasing the highest benchmark numbers. Both these types of enclosures have a performance penalty of anywhere between 10% to 15% compared to an equivalent desktop. If you haven't already, I'd definitely suggest you look into the A51m because that laptop fulfills all of your requirements, not to mention that it uses a full fat desktop CPU which you can change on your own. Hope this helps.
