Interesting case, never seen anything like that. For $4k though, I'd rather build my own monster machine. But then again, I'm sure nearly everyone here on Tom's would do the same.

Is this the one where you press a button on the front and it goes into "overclock mode" and all the LED's light up?

It's ASUS and RoG so i'm sure it's well desgined, but I'm more than happy with my whisper quiet, low key but completely functional Define R3 from Fractal.

It says it has the dual-GPU Geforce 690, not two cards. I thought the specs were nice, they make a balanced gaming machine. But 4k is asking too much for that.

It is not dual GTX690, it is dual GPU GTX 690, which means a single 690 card which has two GPUs.

You can never pay too much for a Transformer!

Why go with a 690 when SLI of 670 or 680 is a better performance per price option?

Not to mention it would be easier to cool two GPUs than one hot GPU.

Specs look fine... but if I had $4K to burn I would want a machine that looks elegant and interesting, not... well, not whatever that thing is.

How about $4K for an all-in-one 30" game rig that still uses ATX parts? which runs silent? To me that would be way more impressive than some chincy pop-out mechanism... I mean, I would feel foolish for buying it every time I pressed the button.

Looks cool. Something about burning that much money and then only having 128GB of SSD capacity bugs me though. Maybe I'm just getting old; the pure gaming muscle doesn't impress me as much as I'm annoyed at the prospect of micro-managing game/application installs on a $4k machine.

Phhh, with the catastrophe of the G73J (I am one of the unfortunate customer), I would not touch that with a 10' pole.

Asus is on my black list for good after numerous RMA and fights with Fedex... never again.

I agree. A couple of 256GBs in RAID 0 would make more sense.

Still not great for a $4k machine, but it will easily fit the OS and a number of core programs/games.

Yeah you'll need that extra overclocking to get past all that BS that comes with Windows 8.

Actually, Windows 8 is more efficient and has more advanced power-saving features than Windows 7, especially with laptops.

It's just the UI that's causing some issues...

That ONE CARD is two GTX 680's, and it is around 1000 USD. So, yeah.
