Keep in mind that Project Linda is purely a proof of concept; Razer hasn't released any pricing or availability details because they may never bring the device to market.

Razer's Project Linda laptop docks the Razer Phone inside its chassis where a touchpad would normally reside and connects with the press of a button.

We've seen many previous attempts at this kind of phones-powering-computers tech of course, but Project Linda stands out in terms of both its unique control system, and in giving off the impression that it actually might work. You'll also be able to use the phone as either a touchpad or a second screen.

That said, Razer's intent is to provide "enhanced productivity and differentiated gaming experiences" with Project Linda.

With a full sized keyboard in place, users will benefit from a more responsive and faster typing experience. It has Razer's Chroma keyboard so you get the full customizable backlight experience. The 13.3-inch Quad HD touchscreen offers the same 120 Hz experience as Razer Phone. It has enough power to charge the phone three times over (essentially allowing the laptop to power). Instead, Razer added an extra 200 GB of storage as well as a 720p webcam, a battery, and a microphone.

Finally, Project Linda improves Android gaming and productivity.

Razer typically puts its wacky concepts on display at CES 2018, and this year is no different.

For now this is just a prototype, so there's no guarantee it'll ever go on sale, but Razer seems upbeat about Project Linda's prospects.
