May the 4th be with you. It's Star Wars Day and we're celebrating with a deep dive into some cool Star Wars tech that fans of the movies will love.
Earlier this year, we geeked out over the badass limited edition Star Wars inspired MSI laptop (opens in new tab) at CES 2020. We were floored by its gorgeous design, huge 99.9 Whr battery, and 300 Hz display.
Aesthetically, the MSI GE66 Raider (Dragonshield Limited Edition) looks like the lovechild of a Star Wars rebel ship and an Iron Man suit. It was designed by artist Colie Wertz, who has worked on both Star Wars and Marvel movies.
With killer specs to complement its out-of-this-world design, the forthcoming GE66 Raider could potentially be among today's best gaming laptops. It packs a 10th Gen Intel Core i9-10980HK, 32GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD and an RTX 2070 Super Max-Q GPU with 8GB of graphics memory. It's currently available for preorder at ExcaliburPC for $2,799, arriving by July 31.
For Star War fans who wish to channel their inner Luke Skywalker, Lenovo's Star Wars: Jedi Challenges (opens in new tab) is as close as you'll get. This augmented reality kit includes an AR headset, tracking beacon, and a replica lightsaber controller – made popular by the Star Wars franchise.
