Hit The Road
A power user is someone who demands the best performance possible out of a given product, at a specific price point. For this person, tech enjoyment isn’t about all about flashy design and gimmicks; it’s about high functionality, and products that do a given job exceptionally well.
However, not all power users can afford to spend loads of cash on every product they buy. In many cases, a true power user would put most of his resources into one specific setup, like a gaming or multimedia desktop with all the trimmings. Afterwards, what little money is left might be reserved for the mobile space. That is the setup we have designed today.
This person already has a $1500-$2000 gaming rig at home, along with the best peripherals money can buy. He is looking for something in the netbook range, but the traditional Atom N270 and GMA 500 graphics just won’t cut it. Being away from home doesn’t mean he can stop playing Counter-Strike. He needs peripherals that make computing simple while maintaining a relatively low price tag, or make a compelling argument if they’re more expensive than the competition.
So where does this profile fit in the real world? College students and recent grads that study or work all day and play World of Warcraft into the wee hours of the morning could use a light version for campus carrying. Or perhaps the seasoned working professional who still wants to get in a game of Quake while he/she is on the road somewhere could take advantage of what we’ve put together. This was designed with anyone who has a specific low-dollar amount in mind—someone who needs the absolute best mobile performance for the money.
