Still, it's an important development—potentially the redemption that gaming laptops sorely need. While I use a gaming laptop because my job requires one, it's always been tough to recommend something so expensive that so quickly loses value.

The latter is clearly what Razer expects.
The Razer Core launches at some point in the first half of 2016, though there's no price yet. Stay tuned for more news from CES all week long.
