    The moment when you play the game on this laptop, and you get the rage so you hit the keyboard you just break your mobile. :D I MUST HAVE IT !! :D

    Linda's a popular girl. Apple's News app blasted c|net's story on this a few minutes ago.

    This is amazing! It would be cool to see it have some kind of core like feature too

    Amazing idea, looks so cool. However, was there any project from CES that actually came to customers? And another thing I'm afraid that other products will loose focus because of this. They dropped nabu support, stargazer just disappierd and many many more. It's sad to see such products die, and yet they had so big potential.

    This is going to end the same way switch Blade UI ended. Devs arent interested unless they make some money from it and that wont fly with most consumers since we all prefer free apps on android anyways.

    Am I the only one who doesn't get the reason for it besides maybe to lower the cost?
    But we're talking about Razer, it probably wouldnt be cheap either
    if you need to carry a laptop sized thing, you might aswell carry a fully capable one
    Sparing space for a phone never been an issue for me, so I really dont get the reason anyone would buy such thing

    I like it.
    I did have a feeling that we would get something cool that would work with the Phone. But never as big as this x3

    I already saw a project like that. Unfortunately the biggest issue will be usability.
    We all protect our phones. Be it with skins or cases.

    This integration will need phone users to strip their phones each time they want it to be plug in. Therefore, the case will wear faster, and it is annoying to be forced to do that each time you want to use this laptop.

    I love the idea, but this is a main issue.

    That is so awesome. This must move from concept to production. Of course I can't even buy the phone yet... :slightly_sad:

    I can see this being useful to those who rely solely on a cell phone as their "personal computer".

    Another thing that makes it harder to resist replacing my phone.

    I think the thing here is the "productivity" enhancing aspect. You're taking a gaming phone aimed at one (potentially) profitable market of users and giving it a whole new function that adds another (potentially) profitable market of users. That's (potentially) no small thing. There's (potentially) some potential there.

    For me, as far as I've seen, you can't credibly conduct business using just a phone (maybe this is just my world and what I do, but I've tried, so there you go...). If you told me I could buy (or have IT buy for me) a laptop-shell that turns my phone into a laptop workstation, I'd be on that immediately. It doesn't have to have a ton of features. Hell the ports in the demo would suffice. And I'd say toss the idea of on-board storage. Portability is the name of the game.

    Ultimately it all depends on the answer to Linus' very good question in the video linked above: pricing. I "could" see myself purchasing something like this for me to use professionally, but I suspect the price point is going to be higher than I would be willing to pay (not to mention the cost of switching phones, but we'll see). I'm not sure, though, that it will be too expensive for an IT department to consider, however that'd necessitate purchasing Razer phones for employees, which may (should?) be a more long-term goal for Razer (i.e. a Razer Phone Pro with specs/features geared towards business users). That last thought is probably a thread-worthy discussion on its own, though.

    Nice! Of course i hope this won't be too expensive as i still didn't buy the phone. . . cause if buying them both will be quite expensive already i think xD
