Re: Epic gaming laptop

The price of it however, is not epic. And this was being marketed as "pcgamingisnotdead" ? it is at that price, ******* hell.

Re: Epic gaming laptop

i dont care how cool the mouse pad is, first things first plug a mouse in :P, nice design keyboard is proper flat though, don't know if I could cope with that. Also just seen some benchmarks for that GPU, seems alittle ****e... but what more could you want from a lappy.

Re: Epic gaming laptop

it's good dont get me wrong but i think it's great but it think that it falls just a little but short and in some places they have made some bad decisions. for instance a touch pad is just not playable for gaming no matter the position. the quick keys are a good idea but the should be placed within easy reach above the keyboard. also the keyboard is bad. island keyboards have poor feedback they should have used a more traditional keyboard with more tactile feedback and more travel (eg thinkpad keyboard) also the screen looks to be too higher resolution for the video card. it maybe fine for the screen now but a laptop lasts longer than a desktop and next year or the year after games are going to have higher demands and the video card may not be able to fill the screen at native res. they also missed a trick by not having a video card in a removable modual. other than these rather minor niggles it looks like a step forward for gaming laptops and that can't be bad considering the state of current machine when everyone got excited alienware m13x

Re: Epic gaming laptop

Did everyone forget the Switchblade or something?

It was the proper version of this which had no keyboard whatsoever.
Just one big sexy touchscreen which configured itself to the game you were playing.
So WoW for example, instead of pressing "qwertyuiop" you were pressing your abilitys complete with tooltip icons in glorious colour.
Not this.

Not this.
I imagine if this is successful (i.e. the number of games supported by it grow quite fast) they probably will release the full blown switchblade.

Re: Epic gaming laptop

There is no way in HELL I'd pay for something that has flashing lights. For that price I could buy a better than base configured Horize laptop.

http://www.horize.com/index.php/computers/x7200.html

GTX580 and an i7 second generation CPU and at least I know I'm solid for the next year or two.

And the GFX are similar enough...
