ASUS' ROG Strix GL702ZC Ryzen-based notebook is now available to purchase

 
One of the highlights of Computex 2017 was the introduction of Ryzen-powered notebooks, which can feature fully-fledged desktop products with up to 8 CPU cores and 16 CPU threads.  
 
The first of this new line of products is ASUS' new ROG Strix GL702ZC, which will come with a 4GB RX 580 GPU and either a Ryzen 7 1700 or a Ryzen 5 1600, offering 8 and 6 CPU cores respectively. These are hugely impressive numbers for mobile products, but note that there are no overclocking options on both of these products. 
 
ASUS also plans on releasing a Ryzen 3 variant of this notebook with a Ryzen 3 1200 CPU in the future, though these CPUs have not been released by AMD at this time. 
 
Right now two variants of this notebook are available to preorder on Overclockers UK, a £1589.99 Ryzen 7 1700 variant and a £1,399.99 Ryzen 5 1600 variant. Both of these models feature a FreeSync display, a 4GB RX 580 GPU, a 256GB NVMe SSD and a 1TB 5400RPM mechanical hard drive. The Ryzen 7 variant will have 16GB of 2400MHz memory while the Ryzen 5 variant has 8GB of 2400MHz memory. Both models also feature 17.3-inch 1080p displays, which are listed as 60Hz by Overclockers UK, though ASUS states that these notebooks will only have 75Hz and 120Hz options.

Bad show Asus, too big and too expensive.

For the price of the most expensive one, you can get a Razer Blade with a 7700HQ and a GTX1060.Quote

It really depends on what you want from the system, do you want an insane number of CPU cores or do you want a thin and light?

I imagine that some people would appreciate the extra CPU grunt that an 8-core CPU can provide for portable workstation use.Quote

I would really like to see these in some non gaming design. I don't like gaming laptops, they have very limited use, but portable workstations have more sense.Quote

Portable Workstation? Nope. Anyone wanting a portable workstation is going to go for something actually designed to meet the task in that price bracket. It doesn't meet any niche at the moment.

Too expensive for the value/midrange gaming sector.
Not powerful enough for the high end gaming sector.
Not cost effective for a workstation, most users don't weight compute heavy work to the cpu.Quote
