And? That's fine, folks who build PCs won't generally have an interest in it themselves. There's nothing wrong with not holding interest in a product.

while i can agree with you, there is one little thing. you don't have to buy 3 780 TIs to use this. for console people mayby a 7790 or a 7850 will be enough and add to the posibility of subscriptions it can be quite cheap, while not as cheap as consols. this does rely on razer beeing cool enough to make this a open project and not soly sell this as there own. i'm guessing you could have a ok gaming rig for 30-35$ a month atleast if you buy in so you get a PSU and some storage that will hold a while. i truly hope razer goes through with this as it could make pc gaming easier to get in to.

Right, but not its not a matter of showing interest in a product. People are actively bad mouthing the concept saying it's overpriced and you could just build this instead! Well no kidding, this isn't for us. This is for the console player who's grown up and wants to move onto PC gaming.

For example... someone not having interest in purchasing this product would say:

"Good concept, will probably serve some people quite well if they can pull it off, but it's not for me"

someone not having interest and bad mouthing product:

"I can build this ridiculous wall build. Razer? Flashing lights, severely overpriced, this is stupid."

See the difference? Read the thread, most are chiming in with number 2. Once again, if they can make this work, which it's a great looking concept, it'll be awesome for PC gaming as a whole. You know all those games that are on console that we rant and rave we don't get on PC? Well, when you increase the PC gaming market, you increase your chances of receiving such titles.

I'm always surprised how many people on tech forums just assume we're the majority. We're SO not. If you're reading a tech forum, much less participating in one, you are the tech elite.

But... this is just... boring. Takes the fun out of it.
But that's just me. This thing has its market out there. If they turn this into reality they will make quite a bit of money with it and have some satisified customers.
Though these days Razer is so popular you could sell a pile of dung for 500 bucks if you slap a Razer logo on it...

No doubt it'll be hella expensive if it comes to light but if they would release blank or bare modules that PC enthusiasts could add their own hardware to I would play with the idea of having one.

You should probably go back and read the thread yourself. I've scoured over the posts again just to make sure, and the people you refer to... err, they don't exist. Plenty of criticism for this mockup's incredibly questionable technical accomplishments, but literally none of the posts I've looked over are what you describe them as. So you know, stop lying please.

Actually those posts do exist. The simplest clue is look at one anyone who has this pic in their post.



I even recall people saying the idea is stupid and leaving it at that without that pic.

Such as this post.

There are others.

Other than I agree with you that Clownie isn't giving the participants here enough credit. You and I are at polar opposites of interest but I would say we've both been equally critical of the idea because there are valid reasons to be concerned about what they intend to do and there is too much we don't know about how effective their prototypes have been.

It's also for professional artists, architects, financial analysts, etc who need a workstation but aren't technically inclined.

And most of the posts you suggest are quite fair. Most of the ones that are socalled "badmouthing" are frankly fair. This project is going to be costly as ****. Proprietary casing for the hardware, proprietary hardware, proprietary interfaces, proprietary etc etc. There is nothing about this project that won't be horribly overpriced. And then this is made by Razer, to boot, who aren't exactly known for being aggressively priced.

There is just no way this project is going to be economically viable without being significantly closer to current standards. If Razer are able to use current hardware with minimum alteration then we'd be having a different conversation, but even then it'd be quite expensive if they stick with mineral oil; they would need a modular interface still after all, such that you "can't" have leaks without derping bad.

please re-think that sentence...

professionals are not going to go out and buy something like this... this is for anyone that wants to buy it

I don't think people or console gamers need a potentially costly stepping stone like this to get into computers...
You don't have to be in the "PC gaming master race" to see the $$$ saved by assembling your own rig.
That's why there is such a boom in AiO water coolers on the market, and vendors don't sell very many whole pre-assembled computers, except to businesses... which aren't looking for anything *fancy looking*

This is already common sense in today's world, if not it's pretty darn close.
Even if a person doesn't personally put together their own computer, I'll bet you they know someone who does, and would help them... family, friends, relatives... inlaws....
