If you want to be able to play games on your laptop but don’t want to be burdened with a large and heavy gaming laptop ASUS has a product that will allow you to play more graphically intense games on any laptop.

The device is called the ASUS XG Station and has an NVIDIA 7900 GS graphics card internally. I hope that they will launch models with higher performing graphics cards in the future, the 7900 GS isn’t ideal for PC gaming thought it will do the job. The device is large and is designed to be used at a desk with an external display. HDCP and HDMI are also integrated to allow you to play HD content.In addition to the DVI connectors, USB 2.0 ports and Dolby headphone jack is also included. On the front of the device is a display that shows the frame rate you are getting in your current game. Connectivity to your PC is via Express Card Connector only so unless your laptop has one you are out of luck. See also the initial XG Station coverage.
