if its based around the atom it will be rubbish. i like the keyboard although i thinkid like some tactile feel to the keys so i know im pushing it.
I can't see it ever having the power from Atom hardware. Make it bigger, improve the cooling and hardware.
IF it's one of the new Sandybridge atoms combined with some sort of easy GPU it will be win. The GPU and CPU doesn't have to be all-powerful. Afterall the resolution of the screen is not exactly mindblowing.
I do believe it is possible - and the fact that they cater to casual gamers also solidifies the fact that it doesn't have to deliver >100 fps.
even hardcore gamers shouldnt expect 100FPS cause thats just a waste of time
if your running an LCD screen it probly ha a refresh of 60hz so therefore anything over 60FPS is a waste as the screen doesnt update fast enough to show anything.
Where's the mouse then?
Atom = fail
Is he doing an impression of Jamesssssh Bond?
I saw a USB port, but looks like they want to use a touch screen instead of a mouse. Wich is a bad move because you will be putting your hand in front of the tine monitor.
This looks to me a netbook for gaming wich isn't good unless you just want to play "popcap" games and some other weaker graphics titles. And its razer, wich means it will be costly.
Anyway, I don't see how it is going to be a market hit.
Ah yes, comprehension error on my part but the point you make does highlight the major flaw. It's not going to be easy to use unless you have a hand made of glass.
sandy bridge would be better for this, if they can fit it in a small case
I'm sure it can be configured, but not having any buttons to the left of WASD sounds like a terrible idea. Shift, Ctrl and Tab are amongst my most highly prized buttons!
Shows it with a wireless mouse in the video, built in bluetooth?
I imagine you'd use the mouse when you had a bit of room and were gaming and the touch screen would let you navigate the device for when you were just watching movies etc.
It looks like a really cool idea. It seems like you can customise the keys so you can still have the keys you want. Just the specs need looking into.
If the animation in the video is properly scaled that thing is TINY! Why would I want to play ANY PC game on a screen maybe as big as the Samsung Galaxy Tab? I can see this used like Android/iOS based phones, judging purely by screen size.
Oh, one problem I see with the keyboard (unless it really IS that small) is where you would rest your hand? I mean, you have to put down the base of your palm somewhere, right? But will the keyboard being touch-sensitive I'd be scared to accidentally press the bottom row of keys by putting my hand down on it.
Also... watch the video, it's hilariously bad.
what? Why are they all talking so slowly? Are they afraid we don't understand it?
It's a nice piece of design, and a nice idea, but i honestly can't think of any scenario where i would want one. Play anything serious, and it's too small, play anything casual, and it's too overdesigned, and mileas and miles behind any old iPhone.
The CEO is like a fast-show character! Brilliant!
Make this with a fusion APU and you're sorted. As it is this is just a fancy looking netbook, it has zero gaming performance.
This = Panasonic Jungle?
