    This looks amazing, too bad it'll be the new Mac of the PC world. The price is a little high, and i gurentee we are going to have buy the Razer upgrade modules, adn those won't be cheap either.

    definitely not going to be a big seller IMOP... It will cost a lot more than a standard pc and probably be a lot slower than most gaming rigs around here.

    I think you're right. While the design is pretty sweet, the price is going to kill it, plus what about upgrades? can you only put their hardware in, or can you stuff your own ****e in these boxes?

    and aren't PC's already modular?

    "Modular design, or "modularity in design", is an approach that subdivides a system into smaller parts (modules or skids) that can be independently created and then used in different systems to drive multiple functionalities. A modular system can be characterized by the following:
    • (1) Functional partitioning into discrete scalable, reusable modules consisting of isolated, self-contained functional elements
    • (2) Rigorous use of well-defined modular interfaces, including object-oriented descriptions of module functionality
    • (3) Ease of change to achieve technology transparency and, to the extent possible, make use of industry standards for key interfaces."

    think you missed the point of what Razor is trying to accomplish. At some point you will have to replace you board to support a new gen cpu, gpu or memory. Those get tossed or sold. What Razor is trying to do is instead of you getting rid of your current hardware you just add a new little pod that adds the processing power you need. Say you buy this system with specs that match your current system. 1 year later you want to add more gpu power. instead of getting rid of whatever is already in the system you buy a pod with a gpu or even dual gpus in it. You go home stick it in the slot. Bam you now have that additional power without getting rid of anything you already have. Same goes for CPU power. Within a few years of buying mods and additional pods you will have a crazy powerful system with some crazy capabilities. in therory you can have multiple PCs running off this system since the Pods are individuals. A pod with a CPU is basically and SOC with everything a full pc needs to run.

    I think it is an amazing innovation and very forward looking.

    this we already have, it's SLI/crossfire.

    I did not miss the point you're stating though, my point was just that PC's are already fully modular systems, and that this is merely an expensive way to do it.

    You cant just add an additional CPU to your system now? The SlI/Xfire we have now requires us to open the pc install the cards, install the cables, setup system software ect. This is an walk in the door, stick in a slot and your done SLI/Xfire. What if you have all of you slots full in your current PC? How do you add additional GPU power to that? You cant. With this system you can continue to add as you need without getting rid of any of your existing hardware.

    hell yes it will be expensive. All new technology is for awhile. Still think it is a great innovation. I dont think I would use it for my main rig. I enjoy building PCs and this would take that fun away from me.

    yes in the direct definition of the word PC are modular. No questions on that.

    True this does make it possible for the masses to "build" their own systems, but I don't think it is as innovating as you do though. And i don't see much "new" tech here either. It's a simpler and more fool-proof use of existing tech, the way i see it. Not that i won't open doors to possibilities down the road.

    the innovation part comes from how they made it all work. How you can add and tie in new parts without making it crash. I wonder if I can add Nvida and AMD Gpus to the same system. Or AMD and Intel Pods to the same system.

    The cooling method is pretty awesome tool. ill just keep my eye on the progress and see what they do.

With this system you can continue to add as you need without getting rid of any of your existing hardware.

    hell yes it will be expensive. All new technology is for awhile. Still think it is a great innovation. I dont think I would use it for my main rig. I enjoy building PCs and this would take that fun away from me.

    yes in the direct definition of the word PC are modular. No questions on that.
    Yeah. Razor did specifically mention the masses being people who don't know how to build computers, but can build a lego piece. That being said, if the additional cpu, mobo etc thing is true on this, then I'm impressed. It would be nifty to be able to add cpu power without having to pull the old one, or in most intel cases, buy a whole new motherboard as well. I'll be keeping an eye on this!
