    In all I'm not sure just how I feel about the whole thing, the more I try and wrap my head around it the more I just pick it apart. But I will admit that they're whole changing keyboard design they have there is probably the future of gaming keyboards.

    I guess this is cool but still not going to replace my current 17" Asus G71. Problem is I doubt this can handle any real PC gamers multi tasking like running multiple internet windows,music, Vent/Skype, and the game usually all at the same time. Looks a lil gimmicky till they release the full specs.

    Ok, potentially I could see where this device could eventually fail. If Razer doesn't support all the games people play, the keys can't be set automatically. I expect them to make it so you can manually change the keys yourself, so you can make the graphics on them what you wish them to be. But that being said, once it's out, and with no real way to upgrade it to play newer released games, this thing would tank, and I mean hard. Like being curbstomped by the Incredible Hulk. They need to make it work with, oh say, steam games. So then you can download your games wirelessly and use the keys in tons of popular franchises. The potential is there, but sadly they should have kept developing this till it was more up to date with the graphic capabilities.

    I'll stick with Duck Hunt and Mario Bros. on my Droid. This seems like a "Prototype" GPU Gigabyte would show off.

    All that I learned from this video is that Razer has the most dramatic Asian dude in the world working for them.

    Yeah actually Warcraft III Battle Chest is still selling great after all these years. Of course, it's inevitable that sheer computing power and graphics processing capability must be sacrificed in order to gain the ability to game on the go (it's a trade-off). However, consider that ultra-detailed level graphics would be wasted on a screen that small anyway.

    I'm just confused as to how the Switchblade can be marketed as a mobile device? Even in their own advertisement video, they seem to show a Razer gaming mouse sitting next to this netbook, meaning that it's still more natural to use a mouse as opposed to the touch screen.

    I suspect this device is marketed specifically towards WoW addicts, as the mouse is not required to play this MMO (it'll make do with a touch-screen) unlike say Battlefield Bad Company 2, where a mouse is almost a requirement. The main appeal is that WoW fans can now take their addiction to work in their briefcase, essentially being immersed in that world 24/7.

    However, non-MMO PC gamers will really not benefit much from the Switchblade.

    This thing is really cool and the power problem with that small of a device. two words. Cloud gaming!! Onlive would work awesome with this because you barely need to have any power just internet and be able to play the video so partnership right there would be perfect.

    This is my point right here, this so should have been a highlight in the Keynote..it is "PC gaming"
    and PC meaning hardware. We could have done less with Kinect talk and more talk on this sweet little piece of machinery (The Troll is at play)

    I was watching the vid, and I see that they're play Warcraft 3 at 0:54.

    Does anybody play that anymore? Just asking.

    this looks so cool but so expensive at the same time, battery life looks like it might be really crappy on this. but to be able to do the stuff it says you can do would be awesome. i hope this becomes a reality and soon but even then would i even be able to afford this? my guts says 'HELLS NO! *slaps me in the face*
