    Gonna be completely wild if this is actually priced at a decent price

    But knowing how these kinds of devices tend to go down in history, it'll be garbage specs for an insane price. expecting 999 to start for the same performance as an i5 4200u and a GTX 730. Oh you want more storage/ram? That'll be another 400.

    Thanks but no thanks.

    This looks sick!!! But I agree with the 2nd post... unfortunately.

    Also; DONT GO FOR LUNAR WHITE! I’d bet that device will look like absolute crap VERY quick.

    2nd photo, middle cover with a screw; my bet is on that that’s an m.2 slot for an NVMe/Optane drive. Upgradeable storage in that form factor would be a plus.

    It would be a brilliant move to price it competitively with the Xbox and Playstation next-gen consoles. Would sell like Hot-Cakes even with (likely) Iris Pro 655 GPU (About Nvidia MX250 power).

    Sure it wouldn't play 2018+ AAA titles at all; but it will play 2014- Stuff like Skyrim and Bioshock 3 at Ultra, and all the Indies just great.

    Yes, my thought exactly on that panel. Also hoping for a Micro SD somewhere on the outside on final version. Could put another 1TB on those now.

    Also a headphone jack in 2020!

    Would be great if there was something like 80 - 128 GB internal storage for the OS. Would not take up more than 1 - 2 chips of room. Only time I'd be a proponent of soldered hardware is a case like that.

    Ram unfortunately, will be soldered. Which is a letdown, but necessary for the form factor

    Me too, I’ve always thought that that would be a no brainer in devices like this!
