At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Alienware just unveiled the Concept UFO, a portable gaming device running Windows 10.

Inspired by the Nintendo Switch, it packs the internals of a powerful gaming PC (though details, outside of the fact that it will use the latest 10th generation Intel Core processors, were not disclosed) along with an 8" display with a 1900x1200 resolution and detachable controllers. 

With more and more people ditching consoles for the flexibiltiy and capabilities of Windows-powered machines, will this be the future of portable gaming? It's hard to tell just yet but the Concept UFO will certainly appeal to a very specific type of video game enthusiast. We'll keep you posted if further details, like a release date or price, are announced later this year.
