    The concept is not a bad idea for a LAN Party Device or portable desktop, but the cost alone will make it not realistic. Probably cheaper to buy an external GPU and get a nice high end laptop.

  • Ry Lanfersieck
    Ry Lanfersieck 5 days ago

    i hate the smaller is better trend, like i understand lighter, its supposed to be portable but i dont like smaller, if i buy a laptop i am going to because i need a portable desktop, so while yes i would rather have a lighter laptop, i would prefer the heavy g703 over a gram, cause while yes it is a hell of a lot heavier, im not using it for its lightness im using it because it is equivalent to my desktop and i can bring it to class or to lunch, being in college having a high powered computer on the go would be amazing since i spend a lot of time out of my dorm and the only computers i ave are my desktop and an older Chromebook, so if i want to get any work done that isnt an essay i need to go to my dorm, and i would say this beast gets the job done for me, also come on, if you saw someone sit down in class or in lunch and just pulled this thing out of their bag, tell me you wouldn't want to go sit down and be like what the hell is that, and then they just pull the keyboard off their laptop like its nothing, i want that in my life

    The problem witht these titles is when i search rog mothership looking for an ltt video on the machine i simply cant find it cause i gotta guess since the tittle is vague clickbait bs. Nobody clicks the video because the title says "wow i cant believe this..." These titles arent peaking anyones curiousity. Its the same viewers as always searching for entertaing wacky af pc talk. The only difference now is nobody knows wtf their clicking on anymore

    The hardware was in the back and the keyboard could be klicked on to the front to cover the screen, think it weight about 8 kilo.

    Have you heard about DWAVE? Perhaps the MANDELA EFFECT?? These events are part of an even bigger picture. The Matrix Movie inside our world brought much understanding to many asleep that taught the start to simulated reality , From the thirteenth floor , dark city , the Nine, Parallels, Another earth and the list goes on. We have a message from our heavenly home of creation . We as spiritual energy made of electromagnetic properties but self aware inhabitanting a physical flesh avatar have many evidences showing from past Yogi and ritualistic sharman of how everything of creation is nothing but energy working in either energy moving with haste or manifesting at slow vibrational frequency can be accounted as the creator of everything physical. We have a electromagnetic virtual reality experience we created for our divine spiritual light beings to be able to experience physicality and everything as outside only being able to feel divine love. We live in a vibrational reality that Cymatics ,The schuman resonance frequency The spiritual Aura energy fields and Spiritual avatar connecting through the physical avatars endocrine system create manifesting as a singularity of a collective algorithm that is our version of simulated reality. This book explains your afterlife , Methods of DMT release , Quantum meditation , and will explain everything of those questions why are we here , where did we come from , and also covers what ,why, who , and how the Mandela effect was created. We from saggitarus Arm have a duty to awaken those lost and also to inform the Orion spur population that from firsthand experience the whole design of quantum realities can be explained once understanding the fundamentals of our blueprint of creation, Law of Duality , The Time delusion , This book reveals the truth about all of creation as one easy to read manual into the depths of understanding what consciousness itself really is and how does one once again regain contact to the infinite source we inside reality deem God, the creator , buddha, yahweh, Krishna and the many more names that are only one true creator of alternating intents manifested by individual interests and socialogical programming of the masses subconscious.
    we are gamers for a reason and the trend of gaming is only a code of consciousness trying to bring back realizations that we are inside a simulated construct of alternating vibrational frequencies manifesting physical matter that we then believe is really physical. This Quality 370 page color illustrated book teaches those questions of life that have those question marks created. In one easy to read Manual for young or old all of these questions of reality are explained that allow you as a single consciousness signature to bypass all the fear programs created in our construct and remember the truth of who you are ,What we all are, Why religions exist, What's on the outside of our construct, What's the meaning of life and more all explained in 44 chapters that allow the reader to progress through awakening and remember how to contact and communicate to source through your spiritual body and ethereal antenna of electromagnetic self aware consciousness energy or the H.E.F human energy fields. Everyone is a GAMER as reality is a simulated electromagnetic construct of vibration. And inside a simulation you have players ( spirit driving your flesh avatar) Everyone has a spirit or electromagnetic singularity and everyone at ethereal level is a divine virtual reality gamer.
