I can't figure out who's supposed to be the target audience for these products.

They need to make these things smaller. It looks bigger than some ITX PC cases...

They need to make these things cheaper before that.

Just drop Thunderbolt 3 with all the bells and whistles (cause who needs a USB hub and Ethernet on an eGPU), and replace it with a hotplug PCIe 3.0 x4.
No expensive controllers, no extra peripherals, just a friggin' box with a PSU and PCIe connector. Just like DIY eGPU solutions, but prettier, and with some sort of a standardized connector.

USB hub and ethernet is super useful because it essentially turns this thing into a docking station. I'd love to have an ultrabook that I can use for work, then when I get home just plug in a single Thunderbolt cable and have a dedicated keyboard, mouse, wired ethernet, and discrete graphics to play games on. Plus this thing can provide power to the attached laptop so you don't even have to plug in your charger.

"gamers and enthusiasts will be able to play any types of games on the market without sacrificing the portability of a thin'n'light notebook."

But by having to carry this damn thing around with you, doesn't that kind of, I don't know, negate the portability of a thin and light notebook? lol

Might as well go SFF at that point as its similar in size.

...but if you already have a laptop and want to turn it into a gaming laptop...

If you're a straight up gamer though, wouldn't it just be easier (in more ways than one) to just buy a gaming laptop? :laugh:
