    7.1 is nothing TBH. Anything with an HDMI port should theoretically be able to support it....and there have been a number of phones with HDMI recently.

    The biggest "WTF?" for me is the i7 CPU!

    Re: News - Razer details Project Fiona concept PC gaming tablet

    you mean the switchblade that's in production at the moment?

    We was discussing this in our house today. Concept is good, but where it fits in the market, and what graphical punch it packs are the key questions

    Doesn't this still mean having a big battery - or at least one that's not going to last any appreciable length of time when squeezed into a tablet's chassis?

    Project Fiona? Does that mean that we're due for a bigger one called "Project Shrek"?

    Re: News - Razer details Project Fiona concept PC gaming tablet

    Very curious about this one... surely it can't claim to be a genuine gaming platform without a dedicated GPU, but that's gonna make it bulky, heavy and probably very hot. Not ideal for a portable device!

    Also, I like the concept of the handles/controllers for gaming but unless they're removable it's going to be useless as a general purpose tablet.

    no the one that was a concept at CES last year, went nowhere since that and now appears to have mutated from a gaming netbook to a gaming tablet..thing, you must be thinking of something else.

    I think the point about 7.1 is more what on earth are you going to connect it to?

    What would be good is dolby virtual headphone.

    Also you can't help but think that Fusion might provide a better balanced option here unless they have some sort of discreet graphics going on.
