Default Portable PC Gaming Laptop



Interesting, and sound concept so far, but as to how it'll actually work and if it'll function correctly...skeptical. But let's keep an eye on it anyway, you never know.

"Portable laptop" is kinda redundant, isn't it?

It does sound interesting, but will the keyboard change like that? Also, it doesn't have a row where the F1-F12 buttons would be, and I've played an fps which uses some of those buttons. So this gaming laptop won't work as well for an fps that uses those keys? Looks like it'd be good for Starcraft, Warcraft, and WoW at least.

Also, was it just me or did it sound like they kept avoiding using the word "laptop" to describe what it is? I kept hearing them call it a "portable device". Why?

I'm cynical about this after watching the video. Right after they said 'Intel Atom', the next thing that shows up on the screen is Quake 3, which people played 10 years ago... on a Pentium 2. Yeah, yeah, it's a competitive game and suited for the demo. But still, why not showcase something that isn't weak on the hardware front and more recognizable to the modern audience?

Awesome! Let's play Metro2033 on an Intel Atom, how about some 4 vs 4 SC2? Seriously though. Atom? Even Atom Duo, won't be able to handle gaming at all. They need an i3 at least.

I really want to just try Atom Duo + GTX580SLI.

So it's an laptop with symbol keys feature/touch screen...with an intel atom that can play dota,WoW, and Quake. Would be impressive in 2007.

Useless
Great if you want to get hand cramps, tendonitis and RSI.

OpenPandora <-- i would rather buy this cause it is made for handheld


WASD on a handheld is just fail.
Although i know the keys are mappable but it isn't going to be more handheld.

I don't think it's supposed to be a handheld. It appears to be about the size of a small netbook. The screen is about 7 inches.

But honestly the asian guy talking from the start makes it sound so cool in some way.


But i did realise that there was a USB port, so i guess it isn't that bad. (Yea I need mouse for action and real time games which they seem to be showing)
It might work once microsoft release their Windows ARM and use ARM processors which can be as good as x86 ones using lesser power.

Anyway this is an old idea which is overrated due to the configurable keys.
IMO: Most gamers don't even look at the keys, cause most controls of the games are mappable you don't really need "special" dedicated keys, images on the keyboard are just to show off to your friends or strangers wanting to know what skills did you have. (Have fun configuring the button images thou)

Note: I would play world of goo on it thou.
And the problem is, it would "probably" cost more than a 3DS which can be an instant fail for me. (And you are definitely not going to do much work on it with limited keys so you might as well get 3DS)

Another Suggestion: Get a 11.6 inch AMD Fusion E350 on it, so you can do real work and play better games on it. Unless you really want to play FPS so badly in transit.

Luckily it is still a concept, if it is going to be a handheld keep it a handheld (Which most windows games aren't made for [auto gg])

Wow... I didn't think they were intending for you to use it like a handheld considering everything. I like it less than I did before now.

What's MX17? You mean m17x, that's 17 inches. G73 is also 17 inches. And gamers do use small shits like that. m11x for example.

I still advise people to save the money on a gaming laptop. Get a cheap laptop ~$400 i3, and a good desktop. Will cost same as a gaming laptop.

If this runs Crysis 2 on best graphics I will approve of this laptop.

Seriously though this sounds interesting the fact that it adapts....I wonder if MS is detected.

Same here, from the video it looks like it's a lot bigger. But from that picture of it, either that person is just huge, or it's a lot smaller. Though I will say the Asian guy talking in the beginning was pretty badass. His voice made the product sound so epic.
