                                  So its NOT a game "Console" at all! Its a Laptop or Tablet with NO monitor! Anything with Windows is NOT a Console is it. How much did they pay you Linus Tech Tips to advertise & lie about this piece of hardware and actually call a Windows Notebook without a monitor a Console? rofl.

                                    There are HUNDREDS of garbage game consoles from China, its Nothing new.... What would be New & extremely amazing is if Linus Tech Tips WERENT paid to do a video for a product & for the FIRST time ever Didnt completely LIE about a product & claim it was garbage just because they werent paid or they didnt receive one for Free, Just like the disgraceful, dishonest , LIE of a video they did for the HTC Vice Pro, the BEST VR HMD available...

                                        I guess i misinterpreted the intro, "Essentially all console hardware parts are PC Components, so whats someone to prevent to build a faster console?"
                                        I thought we were getting this Chinese Console we could heavily modify and upgrade ourselfs, and i was hoping the entire video to see Linus Pimp this Console to its max limits !!! but i was wrong...

                                              ps4 is really popular in china, but me and the genral public prefer mobile gaming. The graphics aren't too bad and you can play on the go.

                                                @MindTroll The Great not able to play on the go is a huge downside because not many people in china actually have time to sit down and enjoy a game. It's important to be able to have "lan parties" at any place anytime, when commuting etc.

                                              Irony, American companies building consoles in China for cheap labor costs, while China bans American game consoles to its own citizens. Chinese people are getting shit on from both sides, Trump not helping matters either.
