Razer Introduces Modular PC Concept With Project Christine
Best known as a peripheral manufacturer and most recently the purveyor of the world’s thinnest gaming laptop, Razer took to CES 2014 to premiere its first foray into the modular PC market with Project Christine. Designed for even the most novice of users, the Project Christine computer features a motherboard-contained central tower that allows for various hardware components to be replaced at any given time or as upgrades are needed. Whether it’s a new graphic card, hard drive or additional RAM, each brick-like pod neatly connects via two self-sealing ports and are cooled by circulating mineral oils. As DIY computers have long been reserved for enthusiasts, Razer hopes to bring the build-your-own PC to the masses with this creation. Lastly, although Project Christine is just a mere prototype at time of posting, the brand hopes to have a market-ready version by CES 2015.
