IGN-Hands-on with the Razer Edge

IGN:Today at CES, we got an opportunity to take a first look at Razer's new Windows 8 gaming tablet, the Edge, which they're calling the "most powerful tablet in the world." With Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, Nvidia's GT 640M LE, and up to 8GB of RAM, it isn't an overstatement. The company is demoing games like Dishonored, Dirt: Showdown, Civilization V, and Rift running at medium-to-high settings in each of the tablet's four core modes — tablet, PC, console, and handheld. The variation really stems from how the tablet is paired with an array of optional accessories the company has produced, such as a docking station, side-mounted controllers, and a transforming keyboard.

I have to wonder if it's possible to upgrade any of it though, i mean sure it'll probably run new games for a couple of years or so but what then?.
