Overall, for well-heeled gamers looking for a desktop replacement that can squeeze out just about every bit of performance possible and stay (and look) relatively cool doing it, the Mothership is the system for you.

That said, I don't think we should dismiss the Mothership altogether. ASUS clearly doesn't expect to move the Mothership in volume. Perhaps we should view it more as an exploration of what can be done with the traditional clamshell gaming laptop than as a misguided foray on the part of ASUS. And there may even be something in the idea – after all, if there was a 2-in-1 gaming convertible that was slim, light, and could work as a tablet, I'd be pretty interested to see it. Of course, I'm hoping it doesn't cost ten grand too.

But here's the real kicker. The laptop will cost a mind-boggling S$9,998, a stratospheric figure that excludes the vast majority of gamers. If you just won the lottery, you can buy the ROG Mothership in June, but it feels like ASUS made the device just because it could and not because it actually expects people to flock to it.

Overall, the ROG Mothership may not be for everyone, given its PHP 399,995 price tag. But if you’re a creator and a gamer and looking for a very powerful semi-portable gaming computer to invest in, then this is one of the machines we can recommend. It has the top-of-the-line graphics, but it is also paired with the latest processor and crazy-large RAM capacity.
