    Leslie, you vommit on it maybe? Either way must be something random.

    I looked at this and think its a great idea, and 650 ain't too step if it is in the formfactor especially when ultrabooks etc are 1k. I would be interested to hear of the battery life, as can't think it would be that long for gaming.

    An i7 but no mention of a GPU... I don't think the controls are going to be the major restriction on what games this thing is capable of running, somehow.

    And even that way it would most likely still bomb, I doubt battery life will be anywhere near decent.

    I had a bunch of reasons written here, but when I got to the end, one line summed it up perfectly.

    Can you honestly see yourself or anyone else playing BF3 on this for an hour, much less 3?


    Oh, and it does not appear that the handles come off.

    Hope they use a video card equivalent to the HD 5770

    Do they actually know what PC gaming is, what it's about, or what separates it from console gaming, aside from the elitism?

    pmsl!

    +1 ....from a devoted pc only gamer.

    The problem, I think, that most companies like Razer see with PC gaming is that it's profits are spread too thin for their liking. They all want to be like Apple or Microsoft (with the Xbox) - full control over hardware sales, and thus have all the profits filtering to them.

    I'd imagine that the upper-managers at these companies would faint if they saw a breakdown of brand names in an average gamer's rig: Gigabyte mobo! Asus graphics card! Kingston RAM! Antec PSU! Coolermaster HSF!

    Good god, man! All those little bits of profit going to different companies! The accounting ledgers and spreadsheets would look so *messy*!

    Should run anything a Core i7 laptop can run, but with two analogue sticks, eight buttons and four triggers - plus, admittedly, a touch-screen - anything that requires one of those crazy keyboards with eight macro shifts for umpty-million key combinations isn't going to be pleasurable to play...

    Based on the pictures I looked at, it won't be easy to change that. The handle itself is part of the body and plus you have the wires inside to deal with. I'm sure it could be done, but it won't be very clean unless you have some pretty impressive equipment and skills.

    Id replace those toggle sticks with a knife and fork and use the screen as a plate, that would definitely sell!
