Sega releases new hardware..kinda
« on: February 12, 2013, 06:36:13 am »
Sega has released Sega Note PCs, Laptops themed around their various consoles, mainly the megadrive, saturn and the Dreamcast.

Details..

The company has partnered with Japanese PC retailer Enterbrain to launch the Sega Note PCs, a range of laptops themed around the company's various historical console efforts. Each of the Mega Drive, Sega Saturn and Dreamcast Note PCs feature a cover designed to replicate the appearance of their console namesakes, while a brushed-aluminium blue version provides a more understated look for the generic Sega fan.

The entry-level model packs an Intel Pentium 2020M chip with a 500GB hard drive and 4GB of RAM, with the next model upping the stakes to an Intel Core i3-3120M processor, 500GB hard drive and 8GB of RAM, while also replacing the lower model's DVD drive with a Blu-ray reader. The near-top version, meanwhile, boasts a Core i7-3630QM chip with 8GB of RAM and a 120GB SSD, while the top-end model matches those specifications but replaces the Blu-ray reader with a writer. Each comes with a Full HD 15.6" display, and a choice from the aforementioned four lid finishes - except for the peak model, which comes with all four lid types for easy swapping and changing depending on mood.

There's another bit of bad news along the way, too: thus far, there is no indication that Sega is planning an international launch for the laptops. If you're planning a trip to Japan any time soon, pricing starts at ¥99,750 and rises to ¥194,250 (around £680 to £1,325 excluding taxes.)

I guess one could buy one of these systems and run whatever emulator of their fave Sega system to get close to the real thing.

The link is already included in my original post. I can't see this going beyond anything they've done already with computers like the Sega PC/Teradrive and the Sega Pico/Beeno line of computer hardware. Japan only or limited release and then it stops all support.

If Sega was to go back into the hardware consumer market, i think creating a PC style system like Apple Mac for example is the way to go as the console market is defiantly not going to last in its current format with digital taking over everything at the moment and the horizon. The market is leaning towards PCs more and more in whatever form they take and the game system part of it is being left behind as mobiles are taking the place of them. Anyway we shall see.

More photos and details: http://segabits.com/blog/2013/02/15/want-to-see-more-images-of-the-sega-note-pc-and-a-learn-a-few-more-details/

Looks like they include SEGA Windows themes and will be pre-loaded with SEGA music.

I already gave you a link. I'm afraid you gonna have to figure it out yourself since i dont know about your finance card whatever you use.
But this may help, a direct link to the sega store sega note pad section, you probably have to translate the page...

Good luck.
