Asus ROG Mothership and Zephyrus gaming laptops make an impact at CES 2019

I've been reviewing hardware and software, devising testing methodology and handed out buying advice for what seems like forever; I'm currently absorbed by computers and gaming hardware, but previously spent many years concentrating on cameras. I've also volunteered with a cat rescue for over 15 years doing adoptions, designing marketing materials, managing volunteers and, of course, photographing cats.

While incorporating Nvidia GeForce RTX 20-series graphics, the Zephyrus models remain slim. Asus added a 17-inch model to the family for 2019.
