    Who knows how this will play out but I really like the idea of it.

    There's nothing about this that I don't like (almost).

    It's too bad it won't take off... and yes, I'm aware that this is an opinion.

    Well the side glass panel is going to be a problem as far as heat goes.

    If the bottom is suitably vented and the top has dual 120's its probably not going to be that much of a problem. I guess we will see.

    I like the idea, but I don't like the $2000 Razer price point.

    I think you'd almost be better off with a laptop with Thunderbolt 3 and then an external discrete card for portability or a small ITX build for upgradability.

    Intel's new idea for their nucs is a good one on paper that they're implementing horribly. Laptop cpu, cooling that's up against the back of the installed gpu, I don't think there's a single aspect of this that they did right. Razer's case for it is bigger than a dancase for more money and less potential performance. I want to like this, but I just can't. It's too stupidly designed. The only plus is the toolless design from Razer.
