I didn't make it!
What if Alienware was considering producing a gaming console that included a portable gaming device?
The portable gaming device would allow users to continue playing the exact same game (including online games) they were playing on the console when the users have to leave the console. The portable gaming device would also have the ability to run other programs, connect to the internet, and be able to connect to any screen with a cord (like at a hotel).
This product would run on a Google Operating System.
Thoughts? I would love feedback and opinions on this idea!

It would suck.
Given that it's an Alienware, it would look horrible, be hugely overpriced, and have the battery life of an electrocuted brick. Given its target size, it would also overheat within 10 minutes and burn your fingers off.
It's slightly possible were it to be a Dell/Alienware product. Dell/Alienware gaming LTs have done quite well lately. A huge corporation like Dell would also give them more pull at getting games written for it and keeping pricing from being as astronomical as Alienware exclusive products are. I'm not so sure Google's the way to go for the software interface though.
Google is pretty cautious about how they invest their money. Putting it toward a new portable gaming system in such a competitive market when they've never done such a thing would be a huge gamble for them. They typically get into tech that everyone uses. Gaming, though a growing industry, is still small niche compared to the search engine and cell phone markets.
There's a lot more to gaming system development than just the hardware. Ultimately it takes huge corporations with lots of money to invest in game development to pull it off, and even then it takes expert strategy and wise deal making to pull it off. Otherwise you end up with haphazard system development the likes of which SEGA has subject abandoned customers to.
I probably wouldn't care about it, because knowing Alienware, it would likely cost a small fortune compared every other console.
i think it would be bad for them
i dont think this will ever happen seeing as dell own alienware now
Isn't this a duplicate thread? I swear theres a copy in general discussion.
is wont give them big profit and to few that i know have bought alienware products

They bought them because despite the name being attached to overpriced systems, they also still have appeal to lots of people as making high end gaming systems, thus this thread. Dell has actually done well partnering with them to make what are fairly unique, aluminum shelled gaming laptops that some here own and rave about. It's not less possible, but more so that such a thing as a portable gaming system could be developed now that they're under Dell, although with the Dell/Alienware name vs Alienware. It would however be a gamble for Dell to do that, and I don't think they will, esp in times of recession.
The things i feel makes alienware great, isn a mixture of its brand recognition of gaming excellance, this is partly down to them using the right hardware as simple as it sounds.. I have the middle spec laptop coming from the US atm....
