$500 for that .. hrrrrmmmm...

hahahaha... Maybe $100... rolleyes.gif


But i bet they're just making the MSRP high, so that when it does go to 100 or 200 , people will think it's a good deal..

hahaa...

Not really, but you are missing the whole point.
The idea is to allow a laptop to become a destop with the first initial expence only.
Instead of having to buy a seperate desktop and laptop, which makes it cumbersome to people who need portability and all of their data up to date, all you will do is get back home, and connect your laptop to the core. Connect a set of gaming keyboard and mouse and a good monitor, and you get all the benefits of a desktop with the same data, same installs, same save points, as you do in the laptops.
Now add the option to just get up and leave, and continue your play later someplace else, it is extremely useful without buying a bulky desktop, having to sync data, or having to swap keyboard and mouse and monitor if you want to work with a larger screen for the laptops. It just basically cost you the initial 500$ instead of a while computer and tou can swap gpu instead of a whole laptop. Or no need to buy a 6kg laptop for the internal strong gpu or a huge watercooling dock to keep it from frying.

I'm looking forward to progression in this technology. I would love for this to work more seamlessly, and I'm willing to pay a couple hundred extra to get the enclosure.

This is bad news for anyone with a XPS 13 or 15 that was planning on using one of these. I'm curious to see how Windows handles hotswappable graphics.

no, eurocom is overpriced. I recommend HIDevolution EVOC instead.

cheapest option would be the AGA + alienware laptop
