    ... Asus seems proud of the desktop’s ‘unconventional’ design ...
    Really? Looks like an incredibly conventional "gaming" case to me - asymmetric, ugly, and too much RGB lighting...

    And what does an easy swap SSD tray have to do with e-sports anyway.
    And the sliding front door was done on at least the Cosmos II long before this.

    And that keyboard is another with that stupid plastic shroud around the keys.
    Get rid of that rubbish, and make cleaning easier to do without having to remove the keycaps first.

    Can't argue with that.
    Coordinate a theme and compliment it with lighting, don't smother it.

    Re: Asus ROG unveils latest gaming laptops, desktops, and more

    Dear Asus, you are one of my go to companies for components, but your pre-built machines and attached marketing lingo make no sense to me.

    Also, why bother going all out with an I7 in a gaming laptop if the only thing it is going to be driving is a 1060? Why not have an i5/1060 model at a lower price point and have an i7/1070 or i7/1080 model for the higher budget gamers?
