HP shows off "Firefly" concept gaming laptop

Computers, Gaming, Laptops / Notebooks

Pity it’s just a concept, but at least one laptop that HP will be showing off at CES next week looks *amazing*. Laptop Magazine has managed to get a hands-on of the HP Firefly – an innovative gaming laptop. Click over the jump for the full details of this beast.

There’s no point talking specs on the Firefly, if it’s not going to make it to market, so lets just concentrate on features. The keyboard has adjustable backlighting, HP’s great media buttons, volume and EQ controls, and a mute toggle-switch. There’s also a multitouch (:D) trackpad is mounted to the right of the keyboard (like a mouse), and a night-vision webcam(!).

In addition to the main 17.1″ screen, there’s a secondary 4.3″ 800×480 display underneath, which anything can be dragged to. It’s a bit small for reading a walkthrough though, probably. Laptop mag says that using the secondary display heavily caused a little bit of in-game lag, but other than that, the machine steamed through every game they played with absolutely clarity on top settings.

I wonder if we can get a petition running for them to release the thing… Even if they don’t, then it seems that they realize what gamers want from a desktop-replacement machine, which is good news. More of this please, HP!
