Gaming PCs often come with eye-catching designs. Manufacturers and modders want to draw your attention with RGB lighting and distinctive decorations. A Danish manufacturer, however, takes a different approach: Its PC concept may look a bit bulky, but it is definitely useful.
We’re talking about the X10 from the manufacturer eBlaztr. This is a portable gaming PC that has the screen built right in. It also has retractable and extendable feet so that it can be used anywhere. In action it looks like this:

The concept places a similar focus on portability as a gaming laptop, but brings with it some key advantages. The PC can always draw fresh air through the open back plate. In addition, he stands on his feet and does not lie on the table, which also increases air circulation. As a result, the X10 does not have the cooling problems of a laptop.
According to the manufacturer, this is officially a desktop PC. So you don’t get any less powerful laptop components. In addition, parts such as the graphics card, RAM or processor can be easily replaced. Although this is also possible with laptops, it is often more difficult than with a PC.

The best configurations from 500 dollars
But despite its portability, the X10 remains a desktop PC at its core and is accordingly much larger and heavier than a gaming laptop: the housing alone weighs 6.8 kilograms, with the standard hardware the construction comes to 11.6 kilograms.
For just over 2,000 dollars you get a decent gaming package
The computer is currently not available, but you can basically buy the finished PC directly from the Danish manufacturer order for 15,999 Danish kroner (equivalent to around 2,150 dollars). In return, you get enough computing power for current games. The following hardware is installed in the X10:
- processor: Intel Core i5-10400F
- graphic card: RTX 3060 Ti LHR
- RAM: 16.0 GB with 3,200 MHz
- Storage: 1,0 TByte NVMe SSD
- Mainboard: Asus ROG Strix B560-I Gaming
- power adapter: 650 watts 80 Plus Gold
- Monitor: SharkGaming SG24240 (24.5 inch, 240 Hertz)
Not only the hardware inside is interchangeable, but also the screen on the front. In order for the construction to remain stable and portable, however, only rather small TFTs in 16:9 format are possible (a Full HD screen with 24.5 inches is installed by default).
But that’s not the only curious gaming PC. We recently reported on a high-end PC from Japan that can drive at speeds of up to 100 km/h. You can find out what’s behind it here:
What do you think? Is the Danish manufacturer’s concept an alternative to the gaming laptop? Or is the design too clunky, despite its advantages? Please let us know.
