Cyberpower’s Fang Battlebox lets you fold it up and carry it around like a briefcase

cyberpower releases fang battle box portable gaming pc starts at 619

Tricked out and eye-popping PC case designs are nothing new, especially when you’re talking about a gaming PC. However, Cyberpower takes that to a whole other level with the Fang Battlebox, which lets you fold it up and carry it around like a briefcase.

Decked out in a shell that’s dominated by black and supplemented by red trim, the Fang Battlebox, which was first shown off at CES 2014, doesn’t compromise when it comes to what components you can stuff in it. Sure, you can opt for a sub-$1,000 configuration, but if you have the cash, you can outfit it with all sorts of high-end gear.

That includes super-powerful graphics cards like the AMD Radeon R9 290X, and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780Ti. Want a Core i7 CPU? Check. Liquid cooling? No problem. Dual hard drives? As long as you have the dough, you can absolutely turn the Fang Battlebox into a PC that chews up and spits out demanding games like a logger tearing through a stack of pancakes.

The one drawback to the Fang Battlebox, as you might imagine, is the bulk associated with carrying around such a beastly system. However, the strain that you experience by schlepping from one LAN party to another with a Battlebox in tow may be mitigated by the fact that, instead of taking the form of a traditional tower, the Battlebox compacts your PC into a smaller-than-usual space. On the other hand, the layout of the components may also play a big factor that determines how comfortable it is to carry one around. Another concern of ours is this: how easy it will be to upgrade a Fang Battlebox yourself?

Anyway, an entry-level Fang Battlebox will run you $619. That includes an Intel Core i3-4310 CPU, a 1TB hard drive, 8GB of RAM, and Intel integrated graphics. Bumping that config up to one that sports an Intel Core i7-4770K CPU running at 3.5 GHz, and an Nvidia 780Ti graphics card, nearly triples the price ($1,710).
