    That's some serious power with a heavy price tag. What do you think? Is it worth it or is it a bust?

    For me, that is far too expensive for a fancy gaming machine.

    I don't see any dedicated PC gamer really wanting to spend such a ridiculously high price on this. It's interesting and all, but you can buy a PC with probably the same (if not better) specs for significantly less.

    Plus it's not like a lot of PC gamers actually get out of the house, amiright?

    Good god, that thing will sell, at most, 5 units.

    NO ONE would spend that much money. If they did, chances are they have no idea how to even use it.

    When they have 5 year contracts with all the major game studios stating that they will implement enhanced touchpad functionality for the Razer's pad, then it would be a good buy. I'd wait a couple more years as touchpads finaly have caught on with the ipad and are just becoming mainstream. I have a tablet laptop from 2004 and it wasn't tell now that there were actualy programs that made it worth it, to bad they won't run on such a poorly specced machine.

    I'm gonna guess the cooling system for such a powerful machine really sucks.

    Yes people, desktop parts are cheaper than laptop parts and more powerful... Fucking Duh™. You can take pretty much any prebuilt gaming laptop and custom-build a gaming desktop for less money. Again, Fucking Duh™.



    But yeah, I don't see the market for this thing.

    Dude. LAN parties.

    Oh sure, ubiquitous broadband internet and voice chat kind of removed any need for those, but they're still more common than you'd think.

    Never been to a LAN party, but I have seen cases with carrying handles and specific shapes to make moving them for LAN parties easy.

    I never said you needed a laptop for that, I'm just saying that PC gamers do indeed go outside. Sometimes.
