The Crazy Mothership Laptop!

  • Published on Jan 7, 2019
  • The RTX 2080 Asus ROG Mothership is the most powerful gaming laptop design I've seen. It redefines the whole concept of portable gaming hardware.
    Mothership -
    Zephyrus -
    The GZ700 and GX701 are two of the best gaming laptops from Asus this year. With RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Max-Q laptop GPUs, these devices are crazy powerful and push out very impressive benchmarks.

    I'm stoked for all the new RTX 2080 gaming laptops but the Asus ROG Mothership is on another level. This thing is an absolute beast. Thank for watching!

    The only problem that I would ever have with that laptop is all that USB gear that will stick out of its sides. It might even make it look a little ugly and not neat... other than that, I don't think I would find anything else... :)

    Interesting laptops, the "Mothership" is interesting, but still no pen and touch on either of those laptops. The zephyrus can go further to make it a tablet touchscreen with pen and make the keyboard like on the mother ship so we can choose between desktop class graphics and all-in-one like computer or we can choose the tablet computer that can be carried like any other 15 inch laptop.

    I was wondering if you could review a USB endoscope! They seem pretty nifty and useful as they allow an up close look of things! They seem to be pretty cheap(like 10-15$ at walmart) and can be hooked up to an iphone/split screen via computer or phone. You can demonstrate it like say looking at pipes, crevices, or even be silly and show it in your nose/ears/throat/face(doctors use these cams!) XD Just something small and inexpensive! :)

    why would anybody call this a laptop if the keyboard is not attached and the whole device wont be able to
    sit on your lap ??? i don't get it.
    looks to me like an all-in-one pc with a place holder for the keyboard for easy carry and go

    Bulky loud gaming laptops are really unnecessary, you can just build a small pc, and buy a budget laptop. That way you save more money and you have 2 machines in case one stops working.

    I'm totally cool with no webcam cause i have an Asus ROG Strix 2 and it has a web cam but i haven't used it frm start,i have just tested the cam and there is no other use.I don't use the webcam as I'm a gamer and you don't need a webcam for gaming and if you are streaming then also you can't use it cause it's not good enough so you'll definitely gonna end up buying another good camera even if you do have one inbuilt.So i like the design,can't complain about the specs,the only thing i don't like is the number pad,i like to have physical keys cause sometimes i map some of the movememt functions and other stuffs on the keypad and using that kinda keypad while gaming is not gonna be easy.Conclusion is i love it👌

    lol, mothership is such a fucking joke, take a gaming laptop, put it in a different package, wow, fucking innovation! While all they had to do is add a touch screen and it would have been the most EPIC TABLET EVER! FUCK ASUS! Was actually thinking about buying their phone, but I dont give my money to FUCKTARDS.
