What does /g/ think about this concept?

We're talking about the concept, fucktard.
If you were able to put your own stuff in the modules instead of buying a new GPU module from razer (which will most likely cost a premium), then this concept is pretty much everything I ever wanted since I first heard of mineral oil cooling.
It has been said in the video that theoretically this concept could be extended to all the other manufacturers and create a sort of "ecosystem", much like it is right now (with a single component being "rebranded" by different manufacturers, with slight changes.)
I personally like this, but I wouldn't use it. Sure, this is more like a "plug and play" sorta tool to help newbies get their powerful computer up and running in no time, but aside from being modular, it lacks the "ghetto" and "modding aspect". Even just tying the cables however you want, or choosing which things and how you want them to be is something that should be worth noting. I can see where this is going honestly.

This is modularity but kicks creativity in the ass. Benchmarking and modding would be dead unless they pull off something of this kind that can still be customizable.
Basically it would become like Apple.
It seems to be a middle-ground between pre-built and build-your-own PCs where you're paying a (presumably hefty) premium for convenience.
I don't need to swap out PC parts on a regular basis, and honestly I don't know what type of consumer does, so the whole point is pretty much to make building a custom PC even easier.
It looks pretty slick, though not as good as the Level 10 in my opinion. Plus you've got that gaudy Razer logo on the side.
I'm guessing the target audience for this thing is people with lots of disposable income with no practical PC knowledge who are too lazy to watch any of the billion half-hour PC building guide videos yet would like a better PC for gayman.
>yfw Razer actually designed the entire system as an open specification and openly tried to recruit hardware manufacturers to build modules and compete with on another to drive prices down
There's no market for it. Anyone who gives a fuck can put together a PC in their current state, and anyone who doesn't give a fuck can pay someone else to do it. Both options cheaper than this.
But the Level 10 was just a fancy case designed as "modular" for thermal performance - it still takes standard parts and PC building know-how. Project Christine is designed to have all of your parts built into "plug an play" style modules and the central tower serves as a sort of "motherboard"
this. The only people that would buy it are 12 year olds that think it's cooler than alienware or the 22 year old babby streamers that would buy a pre built from alienware because theyre too scared of fucking something up, but instead would want this because hurrr i still built it myself
Not enough of a market for it. Normies get pre builts and anyone with some slight knowledge builds it on their own. Anyone buying this would have to be fucking retarded
