Campaign Blog test May 07

Intel Extreme Masters in Sydney kicked off today in Sydney, Australia, but we spent a better part of the day walking through the massive demo area where we sighted the Asus ROG Mothership. In case you’re wondering what that is, the ROG Mothership (GZ700) is Asus’s adventurous form-factor for a gaming machine. We got to spend some time with an engineering sample which was not running any games, to get a glimpse of what the future of gaming laptop form-factors could be.

The Asus ROG Mothership is a very unique take on a gaming laptop. It’s a detachable gaming machine, with all the important components being housed in the display assembly. The keyboard attached to a set of magnetic pins and can also be used detached, via Bluetooth. The keyboard on the machine offers quite a bit of travel, almost 1.8mm of it and of course sports the usual RGB treatment. The ROG Mothership comes with a built-in kickstand, just like the Microsoft Surface so that it can stand upright.
