Asus ROG GZ700 2-in-1 is essentially a giant Surface Pro with Ge Force RTX 2080 graphics

Internally the system is powered by an Intel Core i9-8950HK processor supported by the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 GPU. The ROG Matrix GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is the latest graphics card to earn this pedigree by introducing Infinity Loop, a unique all-in-one closed-loop cooling system that is integrated into the card's 3-slot footprint. This desktop replacement redefines what's possible for portable gaming machines that take hardcore horsepower to go. "The limiting legacy blueprint of previous designs not only limit cooling, but also locks the user into a fixed position that's really only required for use on a lap". The keyboard can detach and be reshaped. The laptop can be placed vertically, giving its cooling system more room to breathe. It also boasts up to 64GB of RAM. Also along for the ride is an HDMI 2.0b port.

The display is geared towards gaming as well.

NVIDIA's GeForce RTX family provides a significant performance advantage over its Pascal-based predecessor, and real-time ray tracing performance should be more than adequate given the Full HD resolution of the 17.3-inch display.

Cyntoia Brown will reportedly be required to perform 50 hours of community service and also participate in counseling sessions. Celebrity support from entertainers like Rihanna and Kim Kardashian helped ignite a viral campaign to get Brown out of prison.

On paper, this is an impressive kit. Asus kicks things up a notch by overclocking the CPU to 4.8GHz.

No pricing or exact launch date for the Mothership was announced, but it is expected to ship in Q2 2019.

"Factory overclocked chips generate a lot of heat, so they're covered by a network of eight heatpipes that transfer thermal energy to the heatsinks at the edges". They stretch across four heatsinks lined with 375 ultra-thin copper fins.

DeMar DeRozan, one of two players acquired for Leonard, propelled San Antonio to the easy win with his first-career triple-double. After the game started , Leonard was booed each time he touched the ball.

While ASUS has certainly embraced its weird side at CES 2019, it's keeping things a little more sedate for two of its new laptops in the Zephyrus S line.

The keyboard on the device can work wirelessly when detached, and you can use it while attached to the device, of course. The keys have a 2.5mm travel distance and there's also aura sync RGB backlight which can be enabled in wired mode. In this case, however, Asus says the ROG Mothership will land sometime in the second quarter of this year. There was no mention of price, though it's a safe bet it will cost at least a couple thousand dollars, and maybe even a few grand.
