Same price as a Windows 8 Pro and you get a GPU. IMO it is worth it if you want a tablet. But your wallet will like you more if you just get an Asus or Sager gaming laptop.

Hint: Don't buy one of these till next gen hardware is out. Haswell GT3 is equal to a gtx 640 desktop and it will be in tablets and AMD Apus will be out soon. You have been warned.

One of the worst gimmicks to come out in 2013 lol. Might as well buy a gaming laptop if someone is serious enough to even consider getting a portable gaming hardware @ the $1,000 mark.

The activities that will be spent on this will certainly be casual but the price is not. This thing is going to flop so hard i don't even know why it exist

For that price they need to have a 128G SSD and a full HD screen. Not a bad idea though. A good handheld PC could appeal to some PC gamers. This has the controller on the grips to make it a true handheld. You cannot hold a laptop and play on it. This is more practical as a portable gaming PC.

I can see racing games and even FPS being popular on this. It has the true power of a PC to run most core games with no problem. Casuals will stay with Android and ipad.

I just don't understand the why someone would want this, you can buy so many better things with $1000 not to mention you'd look ridiculous playing on it.

WHat's the point? It's not exactly portable that you can just carry it along with you when you go outside.

So if you want to play at home better to have a desktop/laptop or a console.

People buy gaming laptops for portability. This is same for people that want maximum portability on a powerful device.
