    Snoy shills out in force in this thread.

    Xbox Series X will do just fine, just like the first 3 Xbox systems.

    Might as well buy one, rip the insides out, and put this motherboard in it.
    And might as well add 64 Gigabytes of RAM and a Octa Core CPU.
    Also stuff this in there as well, then get Windows 10 Pro and three 1080p Screens.

    Or if you're rich, you could put this in there instead.

    Because thers still a massive market out ther for people aged 8 to 16 who ther parents buy a console for or teenagers who can't afford afford a decent pc - stating the obvious but a lot of gamers just want something ready to go and play

    I like to imagine one of the reasons of this giant box, is because of cooling. Microsoft still has PTSD of the first gen Xbox 360. I never did an Xbox 360 for years, because of RROD. I know now they fixed it in their remodel, but when I was younger, I had no idea. I assumed they all RROD, lol. So, I bought a Wii instead.

    I should clarify, my why was directed at the design. Why is that the final design? It looks like they just tried to make a PC and said, “Fuck it, it’s an Xbox now” and didn’t even finish making it look like an Xbox.

    Its funny how we talk about putting it on the floor and it looks like a dehumidifier, because I literally have a dehumidifier next to my cabinet.

    I guess I'm the target audience?

    Laptops sucks, dont care a single bit for them... I bought a expensive one back in 2012 and totally regret it and barely used it... their gaming performance-per-price is actually QUITE BIGGER than a desktop and I don't care taking a laptop anywhere with me, in fact that's so outdated that like a decade ago or more I saw lot of ppl on bars and crap like that with laptops, now for years I don't see a single one, everyone uses their phones\tablets...

    The only ppl that currently use laptops here are mostly ppl on the university and even then I don't see them with the laptops out there like a few years ago, they mostly only use it for work at the university or at home to continue their work...
    I don't actually understand how can anyone say that super tall tower looks nice specially in this modern era where most houses will have space for short height things and not tall tower like things which are more to stay like in a PC desktop desk...

    yep, all pc allows all kinds of controllers, emulators, video editing free multiplayer and ''free'' games, none of these things are available on consoles.

    pretty sure both M$ and STEAM has enough money to buy out each other's company, years ago there were rumours about M$ willing to buy STEAM but Lord Gaben said NO.

    Xbox Two:Scarlet or even Xbox Scarlet would have been better.

    But.. that's kinda the point? You don't get laptop for "gaming performance-per-price", you get it to do PC-related things with comfort. The "only" people who use laptops are those who want to get shit done, be it college/uni students, web designers, CNC workers, etc. - something gaming PCs are an overkill for, and tablets/phones objectively suck at. If I already have a laptop, why would I want to replace it with an expensive, non-portable piece of clunk just to play some vidjas, when I can simply get a fancy 200$-300$ box, connect it to TV and be happy with it? Not saying that gaming PCs are inherently bad (they have their audience), but more that it's a matter of lifestyle more than anything.

    Like I said laptop for working purposes it's OK now laptop for gaming doesn't even enter in my dictionary, that's only for rich guys like LinusTechTips who keep getting all the latest shitty gaming laptops for free...

    Laptop for gaming is garbage in terms of value and 0% upgradeability too since only very low number of laptops can have CPU and GPU upgrades and it tends to be on that gen only contrary to a desktop where I could even fit a RTX2080TI in my 2011 PC if I wanted even though it would never work any good on my old CPU and I would never ever buy any high end garbage stuff anyway since the performance-per-price on the highest end is always much lower and have ridiculous prices lol.
