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.

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.

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.

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.

Key word was most. People will still buy it

there are no overclocking options on both of these products
What exactly does this mean? Because sure, it ain't like desktop CPUs, but I can OC my 4810MQ to from 3.8 to 4.2GHz on XTU.
