"HP and MSI both announced backpack PCs designed for use with high-end VR headsets."

mashable: Zotac also announced a similar product last month. by Raymond Wong

'Though they go by different names, the idea is the same: cram powerful PC guts into a backpack powered by a large battery pack.

'We don't know how much any of these backpack PCs will cost, or even when they'll be released, but it's probably fair to say they'll be a trend very soon.

'Part of HP's Omen gaming PC lineup, the Omen X backpack PC concept is the sleekest of the trio. It weighs less than 10 pounds and has a battery that's good for up to one hour; you'll also be able to swap batteries in for uninterrupted VR.

'Specs include either an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor and options up to 32GB of RAM. No details on what kind of graphics card this baby is packing, but it should be at least an Nvidia GTX 970 or AMD R9 290 or higher.'
