Yours for only £3000 and your first born child.
Features a gimped i7 and a gimped 680m/7970m.
Or could this follow the APU route like consoles?

Apparently it is a i7-3517U, GT 640M LE (384 cores, 16 ROP, 21 TMU, 500MHz core with boost to 570MHz, 2gb DDR3/128-bit at 900MHz), and 8gb DDR3 1600. Performance looks pretty good, Anandtech's review shows you can do 1366x768 with medium/high graphics and maintain solid fps in a lot of games. This managed 60fps in Skyrim on medium, nearly 70fps in Dirt 3, and even BF3 would seem playable at ~40fps.

That review also has a Trinity based system in the charts, and while it scores well it does fall short of the hardware in the Edge. But I think AMD could make some hardware that would pair extremely well with a design like this.

I really like this concept though, but we are probably a few generations away from making this a must have. AMD's APUs should really go a long way in taking something like this into the mainstream, or perhaps even the new Haswell chips could improve usability and maybe not even need the GT 640M LE.

Too much compromise.
Today, yes. Give Razer 5 years, support their development of such devices NOW, and we'll get killer portable gaming stuff. Battery life is the biggest contributing factor to the performance such devices can offer.

This tablet is overpriced.
