Hot off the press – SEGA of Japan Launch Range of Console-Themed Laptops.
SEGA of Japan have teamed up with ebten to launch a range of SEGA NOTE PCs. The laptops are themed around 3 SEGA consoles with an additional SEGA-themed laptop. The 3 consoles are Mega Drive, Saturn and Dreamcast which you can see in the above image.
As the laptops are Japan exclusive they will probably be very expensive to import.

Short HD video of the demo mode and some actual (bad!) gameplay by me. Dreamcast was hooked up to my LCD monitor via a VGA box. The Sega Dreamcast was a console released in late 1998. It replaced the Sega Saturn. The Dreamcast was discontinued in March 2001. This was the last console ever produced by Sega – they purely publish games now.
- Sonic The Hedgehog
- Castle of Illusion feat. Mickey Mouse
- Ecco the Dolphin
Picked up this bargain from eBay. Came with these 11 games.
Fifa 97, Clockwork Knight 1 & 2, Croc, PGA Tour 97, Daytona USA,Worldwide Soccer 97, Tomb Raider, Euro 96, Street Racer andy GEX.
I wont be keeping all of these game, and I have to get at least one Sonic game for it. Also need to replace the CR2303 backup battery as its dead.
The Sega Saturn is a 32-bit video game console that was first released on November 22, 1994 in Japan, May 11, 1995 in North America, and July 8, 1995 in Europe. The system was discontinued in Europe and Australia in 1998, April 1999 in North America, and in 2000 in Japan.
While the system was popular in Japan due to its successful marketing such as with the character Segata Sanshiro, it failed to gain a similar market share in North America and Europe against its competitors PlayStation and Nintendo 64.
According to a July 2007 GamePro article, the Saturn had sold 9.5 million units.. However in Invisible Engines: How Software Platforms Drive Innovation and Transform Industries (on p. 131) it was stated that the console had sold 17 million units.
A bargain in my mind….
1 * Unused official SEGA dreamcast keyboard – £1
2 * 3rd party dreamcast controllers (one unused and sealed) 95p each
I think I will have to check the charity shops more oftern!
