I'm sure many of you have seen this new ROG Mothership from CES. Supposedly the CPU, GPU, and what not are on the monitor side rather than on the keyboard side. Is this really a practical design choice especially for cooling and if so, why have laptop manufacturers not do this from the start? rclxub.gif

I think it is similar concept with AIO desktops, but packed in more firepower and portability.
Asus is probably testing the market with this product, once the trend took off then they will have advantage in the market.

Hmm, I suppose so. Seems like they claiming better airflow and what not but I don't quite get it. Also, if that is true, always wondered why such a design didn't happen before rclxub.gif

after check it out can say the design looks cool and innovate but the spec is kinda high i saw on website the graphic card is on RTX 2080 and not a max-q graphic and with the device thickness i really scare the device won't last long due to heat and i wonder what's that "A special shield" that can help heat affect the device display

at first when i saw this machine i'm like wow... but after i saw dave's review then i had another thought in mind already. Yea rtx is still new in the market and its yet to determine whether it's working or not. And it's carrying RTX2080? with the slim design i had doubt on the heat resistance for sure.

well.. laptop always amaze me sometimes tbh. due to portability. unlike desktop, great machine.. but more stuff to carry laugh.gif and amd new vega look like out perform rtx2080.. if i not mistaken... watching linus tech talk bout new vega vs rtx the other day.. and i was thinking vega looks good. still many games still favouring green camp. thats why its worth go for greencamp.. meanwhile... i keep switching green and red camp.. lol.. go for budget but gives almost similar performance
