*drops the Alienware laptop in the bin* Sometimes, just sometimes things arrive in my inbox that truly set out to bore me but other times you dig a little deeper and then take a second to digest before MIND BLOWN!!!!
Recently I've moved away from my consoles in order to experience the world of Free to Play MMO's like Guild Wars 2 and I've been loving them, I've not been loving them so much since I moved to London and left my PC at home though. My laptop is awesome but it sounds like it's about to blast off in to space whenever I try to play graphics intensive games like Guild Wars or the Old Republic.
Razer, the folks behind great gaming peripherals are taking a step into a brave new world but instead of going in one direction they've gone in three and created a portable system that acts as a tablet, a PC and a console. Play Steam or EA Origin games direct to your TV, Take your games on the morning commute with tablet functionality or even settle down to do some work with the handy dandy PC functions this device offers.
The Razer Edge Pro is a mind boggling piece of kit which has me in awe but also makes me fear for the likes of the iPad if the marketing for this thing goes insanely viral. Its already won awards at CES 2013 and looks set to take the gaming world by storm. With games like Guild Wars 2 and World of Warcraft being 24/7, imagine your lunch breaks, you could take your favourite MMO's on the go (as long as you had the net connection) or you could be shooting hookers and stealing cars in Grand Theft Auto.
The Razer Edge Pro has blind sided me in a huge way, it looks versatile, pretty and super fast with it's i5 or i7 processor depending on which you go for.
Here's a video which can explain it better than I can. Oh my good golly... gief... please. Check out the website for updates, currently the hardware is only available in the US but should be coming to Europe soon!
