The return of the living dead, or rather, Sega, a company that has not churned out a video game console for the longest time after calling it quits with the Dreamcast (that was a pretty good console in its own right, by the way), is back thanks to the help of hobbyists and enthusiasts. Clearly created just for hardcore fans of Sega, the new laptops will boast of interchangeable covers that were specially designed to resemble its old school game consoles.
The quartet of custom laptops would be the Sega-blue Mega Drive (that was known as the Genesis in the US), with the Saturn and Dreamcast alongside in tow. Each of these creations will be accompanied by a 15.6-inch display at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels), Windows 8 as the operating system of choice, and a trio of pre-loaded custom Sega themes (wallpapers, icons and sounds), not to mention 60 songs from classic Sega games. Unfortunately, you will not find emulators on board to run classic Sega games. Features include an Intel processor and Intel HD Graphics 4000 chipset, a 500GB hard drive, 4GB RAM, a DVD burner drive for the bare bones model, and these will be available from June 3rd onwards, retailing from around $1,075 and goes all the way to $2,094, depending on the make and model. Too bad they are Japan-only at the moment but who knows? Things might change down the road.
