If you are a long time gamer you probably remember Sega was once a console maker too. Whenever rumors pop up of a new company entering the market I cross my fingers they do it with Sega. Well the good news is Sega is making hardware, but it isn't consoles.....
Instead of consoles, Sega teamed up with a Japanese company to make Sega console inspired laptops. Yep I just got you excited for some over priced laptops. You can get one of four designs (or all four if you are that stinkin rich!), the designs include Generic Sega, Mega Drive, Sega Saturn and Dreamcast. Each one comes with Sega inspired Windows themes pre-installed, complete with classic sounds.
What do these bad boys have inside of them? Glad you asked! They include a 64-bit version of Windows 8, a 1920x1080 display, 4 gigs of RAM and a 500 gig HD, with a Pentium 2020M processor. With the lack of specs you would think it would be a bit cost friendly right? Wrong, each one will cost between 99,750 ($1075.47) to ¥194,250 ($2094.35).
Not exactly the hardware we were looking for out of Sega. They could have at least made them true gaming machines or something.
Regardless the laptops go on sale in June all across Japan.
