We got our first look at Razer’s Project Christine at CES earlier this year. The idea behind the system is to store all of the computers components in modular slots. If a user wanted to upgrade a certain part they would just replace the modular slot with a new one. Well it has been a while since CES and it looks like Razer is having trouble getting OEM’s to buy into the concept.
