Wow the trolling in this thread... I for one am stoked on this product and it solves a few very real problems.
"so you enjoy gaming on a 15" screen? fuck that"
Only if you don't have a monitor to plug your laptop into.
"The CPU will still be heavily limited by the terrible heat dissipation problems that most laptops have, and you will still have an expensive solution that's not really a solution."
True, as long as CPUs produce more heat than GPUs. </sarcasm>
"For the same price you can get a dirt cheap laptop good for everything you're likely to be doing on the go, and also get a regular gaming PC. A Mini-ITX build is you're concerned about space."
True, as long as you only play cloud synced games, don't do any work on your computer, never pay for software licenses, and enjoy keeping two machines patched and up to date.
"But when you're marketing to the core gamer, you're marketing to a different set of people who value performance and usability over something as nebulous as "feeling dated."
True, as long your use cases don't included having friends you want to play games with in person.
"It seems like a solution in search of a problem to me, unless they planned to market it solely to the ultra-niche "Hardcore Gamers Who Wants Laptops" demographic"
If you look at their pricing you'll see they're marketed towards the "people who want nice laptops" with an extra feature appealing towards "Hardcore Gamers Who Wants Laptops"
Sorry if I seem vindictive but WOW, some people are truly blind to the fact that other people are different than them :/
