Razer Edge Pro = $1300.......Asus G75VW Thin Laptop = $1300

Asus G75Vw has a 3D screen, a GTX 670m GPU, 4 core i7 3720QM CPU all which are SUPERIOR to the Razer Edge Pro's tech spec.

You need to tell the whole story "ATi". The Asus has a 17" screen and uses SATA HDD. It does not have a touch screen and can not use the side connected controllers to make it a hand held console.

The Edge is a tablet (10" screen), it has an SSD 256 drive that boot in a few seconds and has 8 Gig of RAM. You can put it in a pouch and attach it to your belt to carry it where ever you go. The touch ability makes it more than a gaming unit, even though they are marketing it that way. Many people will buy this as a powerful tablet to run apps and windows programs. It may not be as powerful as that nice gaming Laptop, but it will run any REAL game on the market quite well, at mid range level.

This is more powerful than the surface pro, but I like the Surface Pro better. It has the 1080p screen and all the Ports (USB 3.0, HDMI, micro-SD) all on the body, with a keyboard and stylus. I see these devices as the next big thing in computing hardware. And, because there are so many partners making their own versions, we will see varied pricing, form factors and configurations that should appeal to different needs.

In short, I think these new windows 8 pro tablets, which use X86 processor (i5 and higher) will be successful and be the hot items this year. This could also hurt valve console project as it connect easily to your TV and the Razer controller are very good.

trailer not new.

250$ for the controllers is crazy.
LOGICWINS  +   638d ago
You can use ANY USB controller though.

how much is the table its self?! (scared to ask)
meowthemouse  +   638d ago
If I remember correctly:
1000$ tablet
1300$ tablet "pro" processor upgrade and 256 SDD.
100 for keyboard
100 for docking
250 for controller
70 for battery
?? for mouse

you can get a high end laptop with that amount of money. Plus its Razer.

Hell No. £621 GBP for the basic model without the extra keyboard and controllers. I guess you pay for making good specs portable.

Too bad those prices is what will turn people away.

For me it's the battery life. 1 hour of gaming is a joke! Two hours with the cradle is really disappointing.
LOGICWINS  +   638d ago
Suped up tablets like this are only going to get cheaper and better. Battery life will be improved. It's priced WAAAY out of my stratosphere, but its still a milestone that indicates that gaming tablets are going in the right direction.

Just wait until the Tegra 4 tablets arrive :)
Letros  +   638d ago
Lol...

This is far beyond the capabilities of a Tegra 4
a08andan  +   638d ago
I was more thinking in the lines of "wait until Tegra 4 arrive, then the prices will be lower". Should have been more precise :D

too many portables are being released too quick, are we heading to another video game industry crash?
TheBreezyBB  +   638d ago
And they say consoles should cost no more than $400!!
Feralkitsune  +   638d ago
Well, this is likely stronger than the Current consoles. lol And they were 500-600 when they released.

Wouldn't it be smarter to put an APU, like a A8-4500m, into one of these things? I think when we get into the x86 SoCs that when these things will be viable.

This looks really great....if the price was a bit cheaper.

But for what it is, I really dig it.

Looks good. Should be an interesting year for windows 8 and the tablet market. I got my self a surface this week and I was shocked at how good this device is. Even though it's only running rt I have to say I don't miss anything that I was running on my laptop. It's not for gamers but then again I don't think any tablet or laptop really is as this is still the desktop market but I do think if hp, dell ect get there act together they can really have a hit on the android and iPad market as they offer so much more.
