One thing that current-gen MacBooks may be lacking is the ability to offer the same level of gaming experience that high-end and graphics heavy laptops are offering.

The MacBook Pro 2016 could possibly address that though even that remains to be seen. Given that laptops don’t have the luxury of easily replacing parts when compared to a PC, perhaps an ambitious external enclosure can be of help.

The Wolfe for gamers

The enclosure in mention is Wolfe, a piece which will reportedly bring high-performance options to gamers using laptops. That includes touching virtual reality and advanced graphics designs, not to mention upping the photo and video editing possibilities for the MacBook line.

Wolfe is seen as something similar to what RAZR tried to do earlier this year. The difference between the two is that Wolfe is claimed to be compatible with Apple laptops.

A Kickstarter project

There is no question that Wolfe has caused quite stir and MacBook owners are eager to see what it can do. The bad news is that the enclosure is a Kickstarter operation meaning it may take a bit more time before folks can actually get one. This is the assumption that Wolfe makes it into the next phase.

The intent is neat but there are several other factors to consider. Aside from seeing it hit the market, compatibility issues are a concern.

Risky as it may seem, those who want to back up and see Wolfe get real can do so by backing the project for $449. If all goes well, Wolfe could be out by February or March 2017. Right now, there are more than 550 backers for the cause and Wolfe has amassed over $200,000 as of this writing.

It could be an interesting alternative though Apple may be two steps ahead with a better GPU outside its expected updated Thunderbolt display. Check out the video below showcasing "Wolfe".
