Okay this could be a solution for me. Even since my wife threw out my (admittedly ancient) gaming desktop, I've been plotting my next move. To be perfectly honest I don't want a clunky PC messing with my Feng Shui and gaming laptops have always seemed a bit overpriced and underpowered for me. Maybe this little blighter, the Gigabyte Brix II, is the solution.
Yep, there's basically a bare bones gaming PC in there. It has an HDMI out, two USB slots, a Gigabit Ethernet port, built in Wi-Fi, and a 3.5mm audio jack in the front. It can come housed with new Haswell processors but you will have to supply your own memory and 2.5 inch hard drive. Oh, and you have to sort out your own OS.
If these guys can put together some sort of convenient all-in-one package that I can just plug and play, then I will seriously, seriously consider buying one. The size and convenience of this thing is mighty appealing to me. Particularly since I have two decent Macbooks in my house that I use for all the non-gaming stuff that I need computers for.
This is a potential game changer for me.
