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 love the design of Asus Mothership. A neat way to enable users to sit or stand at their desirable positions without a monitor too close to them. All required components are packed nicely behind the screen in a standing position make it easier for cooling solutions. Just put this monitor aside with whatever cable you need to plug in and freely detach the keyboard at your own convenient. Too bad with this configuration it'll probably not for the average gaming users. I would love it to have another version at around $1000 - $2000 price range.

    This thing with 1 power brick instead of 2 (i think 2 power bricks kill the portable aspect a bit) not throttling and as silent as the Zephyrus would be my dream device. I love how Asus is thinking different, they became kind of the Apple of the Windows laptops. The only problem is that the tech is not quite there yet. The Zephyrus throttles hard and the Mothership will most likely be very loud and probably throttles.

    Don't know why it's called a laptop as it clearly isn't. Really do not see the market for this other than those who just love to have the latest kit. I mean how many people really need a mobile gaming rig that needs a desk ?
