Alienware builds desktops and laptops, and at CES 2020, the company showed off its vision for the future of portable gaming, the Concept UFO prototype. It looks a whole lot like a Nintendo Switch, except that its a full Windows 10 gaming PC that can play nearly any major PC game, anywhere.

A couple of hours of battery life??? If Alien ware went this far to create a hand held Im sure theyll have a solution for battery life,..what a ignorant assumption.

@Caleb144 It's expensive, but should be considered with a window handheld console. Can it access to Xbox game pass??

'Scaling down to portable' I hear this term all the time. But this is not what is happening for the Switch. So many people don't realise that the Switch is an absolute performance beast. It's WHY the market hand held market has kicked off; cause the switch is already doing it. Seriously, the creative of Nintendo is unmatched, I would be curious the upset in the market if they announce a Gamecube 2 with technology they work with. Unfortunately the focus on family friendly first and foremost so this is unlikely. It's still funny to hear people don't realise how performant the Switch is though lol. They should probably try it out, they might buy one after.

Not really sure why would you say "Switch showed people want console gaming on the go and paved the way" ... if anything PS Vita did exactly that 5 years prior. And that if we're talking about devices who already took advantage of it.

If it has a clock speed of 3ghz (or at least 2.60+) and a gpu like say, maybe GTX 850 or 1050 (or better) and at least 8gb of ram, then yeah I'd be totally down for one. My biggest concern however is if something goes wrong with Windows and you need a keyboard to navigate through the BIOS or similar, you might be screwed and even if there is a port for one, I don't think you're gonna bring a keyboard with you in the car or at the park, ect. Quick edit: ok maybe the gpu part is a bit of wishful thinking, but a guy can dream ok

That kickstand is atrociously large. Would rather have something small and unobtrusive or aftermarket to be honest. Plus I’m always weary about large moving plastic structural piece that will eventually break. But I’d still trade my Switch in for one of these cause PCMR.

As great as this thing is, I think the point on the fans kicking in really makes me think Microsoft needs to heavily expand on their “gaming mode” because Windows OS overhead just taxes hardware unnecessarily. I’m thinking three tiers of gaming mode settings: strict = maximum resources available for graphics rendering and the game process, minimal OS overhead, balanced = standard windows behavior when games are running, and lite = slight prioritization of gaming tasks and slight reduction in OS overhead.
