    It's a mish mash of everything and far too expensive to be taken seriously.
  3. Who doesn't have to rest their Tablet on something to use it? After a few minutes it's inevitable. I guess handles would help some though.

    People always find something to complain about. If a reviewer doesn't find a few things wrong with a new product they're afraid it'll hurt their credibility.

    I like Anandtech (www.anandtech.com) for the reason that they explain to you exactly what you're getting, along with the cost and let you decide if it's a good purchase or not. Sure they have opinions, but they're always framed correctly , like this comment from their review on the price. "Surprisingly, price isn?t one of the issues ? the $999 base cost is actually a pretty good deal relative to the competition, considering the GPU horsepower on tap, and the upgrade costs are pretty reasonable, too." So much better than $999 is too much for a tablet.

    This will be interesting with Haswell. Maybe they can up it to a 1080P screen. It is just a rip off as of now.

    I was rather excited when they first introduced this - after all there's a lot of power here in a tablet computer - however the 640M does not even match the performance of a desktop GTX460 so while you may be able to play +4yo games on LOW settings, the device is outdated before launch.

    However most mobile devices and the games targeted for them are more like a 'Gameboy COLOR' than a Sony Vitia - except without the benefit of the GBC's transreflective screen and without the Vitia's graphics capability.

    While this can be considered a bit of an advancement in 'mobile gaming', without a transreflective screen and more GPU power its fairly useless.

    You can play modern games on low/medium. You can play old games at high.

    The good news is that the Razor Edge is a great alternative to gaming on a laptop. The bad news is that the thing is more expensive than most laptops that can be used for low to mid gaming.

    I give it a year.
  10. To make it perfect, Razer edge pro should add their device with these optional accessories:
    - a stand or maybe docking stand integrated with additional battery,
    - keyboard, definitely thin and compact
    - small mouse

    ..hmm, I think it wont make any different with gaming laptop with all that accessories :D
