Sega's new laptops all look like old consoles Sega has unveiled their new "Sega Note" notebooks, a series of laptops designed to look like the company's retro consoles.
There are four covers, a standard blue Sega, followed by Mega Drive, Saturn, Dreamcast.

Each model has different specs, and a different price tag.

The base model has Windows 8, a Pentium R2020M processor, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, a Full HD display and a DVD drive for 97,500 yen ($1050 USD). Moving to the high end model, you get a 2.40GHz Intel Core i7-3630QM Processor, 8GB of DDR3 SDRAM and an NVIDIA GeForce GT650M 1GB graphics card, a 120GB SSD and a Blu-ray writer for the price of 194,250 yen ($2100 USD).

If you really want them, they are available (in Japan) here: Enterbrain

Yikes! Those are apple spec-to-price ratios!

Exceptional specs, but good lord the price! For the $2100 one I would certainly expect a secondary hard drive for storage.

Edit: maybe I spoke out of turn - after looking at the spec sheet, it seemed to show that a 500GB HDD was in there somehow, but to what degree I'm still lost.

Lol, now that would be cool.
Instant nostalgia from my youth imagining that sound bite.
