A gaming laptop does not actually let you gamine anywhere. It lacks a critical component for gaming anywhere: a desk. That’s not to mention laptops usually lack the raw power of a PC. This age-old dilemma of gaming laptops or gaming desktops remains, well, that’s until BASE comes along.
BASE is a portable gaming setup that comes with a high-end computer, screen, keyboard, mouse, and believe it or not, a gaming desk. The desk itself is the computer, by the way, and it has the space to stow away a monitor up to 27 inches with adjustable distance and height, and a mouse and keyboard in it.
The brainchild of Finnish esports company UNEVN (pronounced Uneven) founded by Aleksi and Santeri Rinkinen together with former Dota 2 world champion Jesse “JerAx” Vainikka, the new BASE is designed with pro-e-athletes and pro-to-be in mind.
But is BASE a PC or laptop? Well, it is kind of like a laptop, except that it uses PC components, including GPUs that laptop many users clamor for, and it is also a desk. When it is time to move, it folds down in under a minute, allowing you to pack the entire setup for boot camps and whatnot.
The desk – which is the entire setup basically – measures 27 inches deep (68 cm) and 45 inches wide (114 cm), and it has a height adjustable from 21 to 33 inches (54 – 82 cm) which means it can be like bed tray or a full-fledge table. UNEVN BASE has to be the craziest thing coming from the gaming PC industry thus far.
It is configurable, obviously, and if anyone’s interested, it has a base price of €1,290 (about US$1391). You can learn more about this exciting new gaming rig at unevn.gg or configure your very own HERE.
