Asus ROG GX700 which has the unique distinction of being the world’s first liquid-cooled notebook device is now on sale in India for a cool Rs. 4,12,990.
Apart from the premium hardware setup, the other distinctive quality of Asus ROG GX700 is its ROG-exclusive Hydro Overclocking System cooling module, which the company says is capable of dissipating 500W of heat, aided in no small measure by its twin 92mm radiators. The cooling module is also detachable, which means users have the option to operate the notebook depending on its native cooling mechanism alone.
