Ugly, but the simplification of the modular concept makes sense for the future - I honestly don't know why it's taking as long as it has.

I don't think I would use something like that.

First of all, it's so ugly. Second of all, I really like building a PC. It's fun.

I like it, although I'm guessing for someone like me who already knows how to build a PC, the price premium that will apply here will not be worth the steps that it eliminates.

I like the idea though.

Between that and their new Smartband, Razer seems surprisingly relevant this year... at least much more than with "big things" like the Blade, the Edge and other such nonsense.

Wait... what?

Being a Razer product kills it for me. I can't imagine them offering a GPU upgrade pod for less than $300 over MSRP.

Ugly looking and a bad idea.
The swapping out of parts will be more time consuming because of needing to remove old parts from the modular cases and then putting in the new one.

They added steps to assembly and PC maintenance.
