If it is anything like the Asus ROG with the vents then it would be great.
Unfortunately if this is a modified Asus laptop it is butt ugly or they ran out of money during the design stage.

Then again it is for gaming, likely in a dark or badly lit room so who cares about appearances.

Looks bitchin', but probably costs an arm and a leg.
