The Nabu is a new product from Razer that possibly gives us a hint of the company’s plans to expand its business beyond the manufacture of computers and PC peripherals. However, this doesn’t mean that Razer would stop its computer building business.

On the contrary, it’s growing its business by bringing to ordinary “less tech-savvy” consumers a system of PC-building that has long been used in the industry by gaming rig builders – the concept of a modular PC with Project Christine.

Basically, the system will use a concept modular design that will allow users to build and customise their PC in any configuration without prior technical knowledge. Moreover, the process of upgrading the system will be made more convenient as users will be able to choose which components to change.

The system features a PCI-Express architecture making it easy to automatically sync new components; users simply need to plug in the new module (say a graphic card or a new hard drive) into a slot and the system will automatically detect and integrate it to the existing setup.

Project Christine also comes with a cable-less design with self-contained modules that features active liquid cooling and noise cancellation. This also allows Razer to factory overclock components without voiding warranties. The system also has a touch-screen LED screen that indicates control and maintenance information.

Lastly, Project Christine offers additional flexibility to consumers by being capable of running multiple operating systems.

At the moment, Project Christine is still in development but there’s a good chance that we might see this system in the near future, just like the company’s Project Fiona, which eventually became the Razer Edge tablet.
