CES 2017

It can't have escaped your notice that CES is going on at the moment, and manufacturers everywhere are doing their best to tempt you and your bank balance into spreading the wealth. No exception to this idea is the ROG arm of ASUS who have a whole array of new products. Let's start with their peripherals :

The Gladius II combines the most durable version of the Omron switches - 50 million clicks - with ASUS ROG Switch socket system that we've seen before, letting you pick and choose which switch types you prefer. Add this to the AURA lighting and an FPS heavy design and it should find a home in many environments. 

Following that are the two Strix models, the Evolve and the Impact. These similarly utilise the 50 million click Omron switches with AURA lighting, with the Evolve supporting four different swappable tops so that you can pick a design you find most ergonomic, whilst the Impact is designed for lengthy MOBA sessions. 

Lastly the GX970, although named in a manner guaranteed to cause Google search confusion, comes with the most interesting feature of the four. The side panel can be adjusted between a 10 button panel for the more complex games in your arsenal, or the more standard two side button arrangement. It's not the only adjustable feature on the GX970 though, as you can also tweak the weight to your preference as well as pick a DPI from a lowly 50DPI all the way up to 12000.

I don't get why they only went with 10 thumb buttons on the GX970 considering the norm for them is 12, and those extra 2 come in handyQuote

GL702 looks pretty sweet. I'm not a huge fan of thick chunky laptops and I get why they need to be like that for cooling running a 1080 so the 1070/1060 version would be a nice compromise.
The new desktops look like extras from the Pacific Rim movie. Crimson Typhoon Quote

The GT-AC5300 router reminds me of the Sarlaac pit for some reason.

Still confused why no 1080ti...Quote
