    Looks interesting for people that use devices like these as their ownly ones at home, having a keyboard and bigger screen whenever they need something like a computer.

    Won't catch on. Motorola did it, Asus did it, HP did it, never catches on. It's a cool concept but people just are not interested in having an all in one device like this.

    Another Dead-weight device.
    This time 13.3".

    If I wanted big Android device, I would get regular notebook with Multitouch and install Phoenix OS. There is no Android device capable to deliver even 50% of gaming performance which x86 HW delivers due to much higher thermal/cooling design.

    And to be honest, Playing most of Android games is already pretty hard on 10" device as controls are hard to reach in center of screen.
    For that reason Phoenix OS has very advanced touch emulation function for keyboard and mouse.

    indeed i agree at 200%...

    And if Android is the right choise for gaming on phone, it never convinced me on desktop/laptop device, gaming net device.
    Even NVidia shield (wich is the best for this exercice) is not what i expect from a gaming device.

    If Razer do it below 500 Euro maybe it get a chance...

    I like playing moba games on Android. And Playing on PC in emulator or directly in x86 OS is quite comfortable.
    It gives you edge due to larger screen to look at and higher fps + better response times.

    My favorite is Mobile Legends. Playing that on keyboard and mouse is like cheating.
    But as stated before. Here device rendering is having small thermal envelope of cellphone inserted into dock.

    For 500 Euro, you better get half decent x86 chip and do yourself a dualboot. As that gives you device with wider usability.
    And in worst case resale value.
