ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX502 Glacier Blue

For something well-integrated with a custom look and custom case that you can’t get anywhere else, pre-built desktops are the way to go. Obviously, ASUS ROG has a lot of fancy designs like what we’ve seen in the past – but today, they’re getting new hardware with the fancy designs.

There are a total of 3 different desktops that are coming to the market – the Huracan G21, Strix GL12, and also the Strix GL10. These 3 aren’t exactly new new, but they are definitely refreshed with the latest high-end hardware.

ROG Mothership

ASUS ROG Mothership

I wonder what went into ASUS’s mind when they are designing the Mothership. This thing is just out of the ordinary that I was shocked when I just knew about it. It’s an AIO-like gaming PC with the beefiest specs, but also portable. The keyboard serves as a cover for the screen and can be unfolded, or completely detached from the main unit.

The Mothership itself has a kickstand and able to stand up on its own, while you play your games remotely with the wireless keyboard. And yes, this thing is a “laptop” as it is also battery-powered.

New Glacier Blue color for ROG Zephyrus S and ROG Strix G

We all know this is coming – but we didn’t know that they are coming now. The new Glacier Blue color option takes the same design and materials but painted in this light skyblue color. I don’t know how to describe it but there is a noticeable hue of blue to it, but it’s not saturated. It certainly is less “I’m a gamer” in terms of design, and caters for both male and female.

Both the ASUS ROG Zephyrus S and ROG Strix G will be available in Glacier Blue color option with these specs:

ROG Huracan G21

We originally called this case the strip tease because of its unique side panel design. It is with the general consensus that PCs need to breathe – hence that is why we have ample ventilation on PC cases, but who wants a case filled with holes?

ASUS ROG Huracan G21

ASUS innovated the idea of having a side panel that folds out like origami, revealing an extra, unobstructed pathway for air intake. This side panel folds out easily and is held by strong magnets, making it easy to snap on and snap off.
