Should I buy the Razer Edge?

spacekungfumanspacekungfuman Poor and minority-filledRegistered User, __BANNED USERS regular
As a father to be who spends 45-50 minutes on a train 5 mornings and evenings a week, I am seriously considering the Razer Edge as a good way to get some serious gaming time in. I have an m11x which I use on the train sometimes, but the firm factor is not the best for gaming on the train, especially sitting next to someone. Has anyone here tried it yet? What are people's thoughts on this as a way to get serious gaming in on the train/in bed? I mostly play RPGs, strategy games and simulations, if that impacts anyone's thoughts. Thanks for any input!

    I'm very strongly considering one.

    I've used a Samsung Series 7 Slate as a primary machine for over a year - usually docked and connected to an external 22" monitor, or on the couch or otherwise wandering around the living room. It's been a spectacular set up for my use, mostly because it's so modular. I get a desktop with secondary screen (great for persistent stuff, like IM contact lists, music controls, or whatever), tablet, or pseudo-laptop on a stable surface when travelling. The Razer Edge is basically this, but with the ability to play real games at a decent level. First round of reviews support this and are pretty promising.

    I'm not sure if I'm going to get the controller right away - I'd primary use it as a tablet for tablet-stuff and docked for gaming. If there are specific games you're interested in playing, it might be worth seeing if they're 360 controller or touch-optimized, as you might run into challenges using them if not.

    I am inclined to wait for the second gen before pulling the trigger, based on the batter life reviews. But I definitely see this or something similar in my future.

    I'm banking on decent resell value, as I'm pretty sure the next few iterations of Intel chips will yield far fewer compromises in the next year or two.
