ASUS Design

First of all, here we have a laptop that looks like a regular gaming laptop. A pseudo-lid with the Republic of Gamers logo which lits like any normal Asus laptop. And then we see the kickstand which turns the lid into the undercarriage.

Then the strange thing happens, the lid goes down and becomes a full keyboard and touchpad. The keyboard in this device is similar to ROG Zephyrus and ROG Zephyrus S where the keyboard is pushed to the bottom edge. Similarly, the touchpad is located at the right and can be converted to a digital Num Pad.

The rear side of the Asus Rog Mothership GZ700 has large air vent above the kickstand. And below it lies a very well placed LED lights which makes the kickstand glow. The exhaust is located at the top for good thermal performance.

Finally, the best part about this laptop Asus Rog Mothership GZ700 is that the keyboard can be separated. The removed keyboard can be folded in half and is connected through Bluetooth or a USB-C wired connection. The Mothership laptop is an all-in-one laptop with a 17.3 inch 1920 x 1080 screen with a 144Hz refresh rate also available with a 4K 60Hz panel and offers a 100% RGB colour accuracy.
