No matter how much power you cram into laptops these days, they still cannot measure up to desktop systems in terms of performance. This is a sore point for hardcore gamers as they want the same, exacting performance on-the-go that is comparable to their desktop counterparts. Magma is now offering a solution in the form of the ExpressBox1. Shaped like an external drive enclosure, the ExpressBox1 holds a PCI-E graphics card and is connected to the laptop via the ExpressCard/34 module and a PCI-E cable. Latency issues are non-existent accordign to Magma, and the ExpressBox1 currently supports only single-width video cards that guzzle up 55 watts of power at most. Support for double-width cards will follow later this year. The ExpressBox1 hits your pockets hard for $729. Looks like portable gaming just got a boost, but your suitcase will suffer from an extra lack of space.
