ASUS' Surface-style gaming PC gets an Australian price-tag

Shown off at this year’s CES, ASUS have finally detailed just when their Mothership gaming PC will be coming to Australia - and just how much it’ll cost.

On display at this year’s IEM Sydney, ASUS say the ROG Mothership will be available locally from the end of June at an RRP of $9999. This high-end price-point makes it the most expensive gaming PC in ASUS’ local range.

According to ASUS, the driving factor behind the Mothership’s unique design is cooling.

They say that “conventional clamshells limit cooling and lock into a fixed position in order to fit a form factor that can sit on a lap – a good compromise for a lot of laptops, but desktop replacements are too heavy to sit comfortably, so ROG has reimagined the form factor to improve the experience.”

“Instead of lying flat on a desk, the ROG Mothership stands tall to give the cooling system unrestricted access to airflow at the back.”

The keyboard for the Mothership can also be separated from the display - allowing you to use it wirelessly when needed. Doing so also reveals a row of four speakers.

Locally, the ROG Mothership will be equipped with a 17.3-inch UHD IPS display, i9-9980HK , RTX 2080 graphics, 4x 16GB of RAM and 3x 512GB of PCIE storage.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
