    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.

              Still rather get the Zephyrus since it has a 240 Hz screen and much more compact but still works great (I mean the new GX502)

                You forgot to mention the Mothership has VirtualLink compatibility allowing all your VR headset cables to be condensed down to one USB-C connection.

                                          The only reason why I am buying gaming laptops are cause I suck at using mouse and I'm pro at gaming with tracpads that have dedicated buttons.

                                            The price will be a huge issue, but the mothership concept is exactly what I've always wanted. A portable computer that can be easily stored and cleaned up (perfect for those using computers without offices or dedicated computer desks)

(Or Surface Pro with Keyboard Cover) ;) I'm really glad they solved the thermals and as I commented on your other video, nobody makes Scissor keyboards like they did 15 years ago, so this compares favorably to e.g. the foldable Dells I've been looking at to put a proper keyboard in front of. +1 :)
