    That's really bad. I thought finally a real MXM RTX came out but its not.
    The aerodynamics really helps in increased intake by several folds on paper but I'll wait for official review. With U3 cooler or similar temps should be decent.

    U3 cooler wouldn't help with the "Mothership", the "parts" are in the vertical section behind the screen. The "bottom" is the detachable keyboard, unknown what else is in that section, maybe more battery?

    The Asus has been using non-MXM AIO components on the motherboard for several years now, since the G751, without notable failures of CPU's or GPU's - I'm sure some do fail, but Asus has been servicing them.

    And, I haven't seen a lot of mention (any?) of CPU / GPU failures in G751's after warranty expires either.

    Watch the PCWorld video coverage of the 2 laptops, they show the motherboard. And watch the Linus video for views of milled aluminum case shell pieces, pretty wild build details.

    Neat, I guess? I'll have to see real performance specs, but it kinda looks like a backwards Zephyrus with a removable keyboard...

    That one looks sick. Wonder what those hinges are made of.

    It looks promising... But ultimately curious about the price. It's not my cup of tea but I'm sure it will have suitors. No laptop external fan in use today will be able to cool it though. Linus showed how the body is made of aluminum. Going to have to wait for reviews to see how this notebook will cool in this chassis design.

    Love the hardware, hate the design. What kind of affect will the screen suffer with such hot hardware behind it? I didnt watch all the videos, and not sure if they already mentioned something about that. IMO, its just a marketing gimmick.

    Their is a big slab of aluminum in between the mobo/panel from what I seen in the a video, but ya looks gimicky. I bet the price is $4000++ USD.

    If a MXM variant came out most of us would not be able to use it. TDP for the 2080 is 215w with a recommended power supply of 650w. The two bricks with 600w is barely there. And of course it's BGA....
