    From PC Gamer

    "There are no special graphics drivers required to make the system work—you’ll just be using the normal AMD or Nvidia drivers for the GPU you place in the enclosure. The one catch is the laptop BIOS. According to Razer, the laptop BIOS will need to properly support Intel graphics switching, so the system can recognize and utilize the dedicated GPU when plugged in, and operate on the integrated GPU when unplugged. Right now, the system only works with the Blade Stealth, but once the Core is released, nothing should prevent Dell or Lenovo or Asus or anyone else from supporting the hardware, too."

    Good lord, Razer can't even make a reliable mouse.

    I'd never trust them with something like this.

    The price has been announced, $499 - was hoping for a little lower, but this is not too bad, probably there will be some much cheaper sales deals for these after it has been on the market a while
