    Heat is a bit of an issue with laptops, well ASUS solved it plain and simple by adding a liquid cooling loop. The GX700 comes with an overclockable Intel Skylake processor, NVIDIA graphics, and an e...

    LOL!

    They should make it more practical - just replace this bow with an ability to connect to tap water source! =) They can even add 5-20m rubber hose (not everyone has tap water in living room ;) and several sized connectors, all in ROG colors!
    The biggest challenge will be to make the system non-conductive... and resistant to corrosion!

    better have an ITX desktop with WC than this on the desk... but i guess some like it.

    Hohooh man that looks bad.

    At that rate it's probably a better idea to make a thick-ass laptop and be done with it.

    We all know for a long time a fact that laptop manufacturers, especially for gaming laptops (I would never buy gaming laptop neither for me or for some of my kids), are desperate to find good enough cooling solution that will do the job on a long run. Classic "fan or two + heatpipes" solution are simply not good enough after two or three years (oftenly even less then that) of use for most of gaming oriented laptop users who in most cases (read: rich kids) don't give a f.u.c.k about cleaning laptop cooling sistem once in a while. When dust accumulates inside + summer comes gaming laptops are choking to death because of too much heat, resets, BSOD's, sudden turn offs because of overheating... I saw that personally way to many times: usually some spoiled rich kids with 3000, 4000€+ gaming laptop clogged with insane amount of dust inside laptop after just 6 months or year of constant everyday (ab)use.

    But this Asus attempt to make this liguid cooled ROG gaming laptop really makes me wanna :puke2:. Fugly as my mother in law ass. I'm not sure that even extreme ROG fans would buy something like that. Just imagine guy sitting on the bench in the park gaming with something like this, lol

    One day, maybe, (if mobile PC survives as a gaming platform) real gaming laptops will be more (OK, I'm not sure that'll ever happen) affordable, more compact and with some kind of new yet unreleased advanced cooling solutions. Until then attempts like this liquid cooling ROG gaming laptop are nothing more then waste of time and resources for Asus and any other manufacture who wish to make something simmilar and plain stupid like this.

    Agree that the're trying to push the limits but this :bang: If some new cooling technology doesn't comes soon to replace fans+heatpipes or stupidity like this I really don't see gaming laptop as a viable solution for comfortable enough PC mobile gaming.

    My Sager with an i7 4770K (desktop CPU) and GTX 980m runs just fine without being significantly thicker then my older "gaming" laptop with an i7 4700Q (laptop CPU) and GTX 765M let alone with a huge cooling loop/radiator plugged into the back of it. I'm betting this ROG setup cost more too and isn't exactly portable....

    To me id rather purchase the laptop from MSI that allows you to use desktop GPUs in them rather than this ugly looking thing.

    Also, ASUS G751 gaming laptops have exceptional cooling already, offering good temperatures (including cool hand rest) at low noise. Seeing one in action on regular basis (Haswell quad core + 970M), I can hardly justify such solution.

    Agree - I have one(4720HQ + 970m) and it's great machine - it's cool, quite, display is good(FHD IPS in my case), but it's a thick and heavy machine( 4 and a half kilos without the power brick - ouch).

    Yeah, I completely agree with you. If Asus offered a desktop CPU option and you wanted to overclock it heavily then I can see this being useful. Since to the best of my knowledge they haven't offered such an option yet I can't see the reason for this. If they offer an unlocked i7 6000 series then I'd be quite interested. :nerd:

    As a gamer, I would rather tote my mini itx build around than that laptop.
