    Its only a concept so may never see the light of day in terms of actual retail. Not sure how practical it is but I like the innovation.

    With Razer's product price premiums, only the richest of the rich trust fund kids could afford this!

    On game trailers they mentioned if enough people wanted one it'd be around $1000.

    No...it is coming out. The ones at the mo are prototypes but it's scheduled for later this year. I started a thread earlier in tablet section too. I may buy one tbh

    This year! I'm skeptical. Good on them for getting it out there if they do. Any word on price?

    And there will be no official retailer apart from PC World who will stick on a massive markup.

    The price is fairly reasonable, you have to remember this is a mobile i7, it is essentially an ultrabook in a different form factor.

    Considering that an iPad is not that much cheaper and yet is significantly underpowered in comparison, it is not so far fetched.

    Personally I will still be buying a laptop, I don't like the way that the controllers on both side from the photos are not detachable. Kind of limits the mobility of the product.

    That and the prototype didnt have a battery so no hints on if it will be completely mobile or not.

    It looks great but is there a market for this type of stuff? It's as if it is trying to sit inbetween PC and handheld console gaming, but for $1000 it's a bit of a luxury.

    Checking out Razer's Project Fiona
