    What a waste, as you can already get desktop-class performance in a laptop, from Nvidia, so you don't need to buy a one of these. :p

    This is more geared towards laptops without a dedicated GPU.

    But you have to figure, a laptop with TB3 would cost probably what $500 minimum?

    You buy this Devil Box for $420, so now you're at $920. Which would be great! But then you still need a gpu, which if you're dropping the cash for this already, chances are you're going to get a pretty fast GPU to go with it.

    Now on the other hand, if you're someone that already has a laptop or a Macbook even with TB ports and you want max performance at home or even a lan party, this is a pretty sweet deal. Well, price wise it isn't. What if offers though is pretty nice.

    I think this is a killer idea, but an awful price. If these external GPU Enclosures keep coming with high price tags, then it's going to turn out being a very niche market. I would buy this at say $200.
