Remember the whole ‘PC Gaming Is Not Dead’ thing a little while back? While nobody really debated that fact, there was the PAX announcement deal which got PC fanboys drooling, it was inevitable that it would be some kind of hardware, but I don’t think we were prepared for something like a whole new gaming laptop.
Not just any laptop either, think Alienware, but not built like crap and with specs you would only expect from a desktop system, so to give you all the info about the new epicness, read on…
The Razer Blade is a 17” gaming laptop that delivers incredible performance and a revolutionary user interface in a sleek, portable form factor. It features a fast Intel Core i7 processor and a high performance NVIDIA GeForce graphics processor designed in a lightweight aluminum chassis. The revolutionary Switchblade User Interface, found next to a full-size keyboard, was designed from the ground up to enhance gaming experiences and provide more control at the gamer’s fingertips. It features 10 adaptive tactile keys and a multi-touch LCD panel that can also display in-game information. And at just 0.88 inches thin and only weighing 6.97lbs, the Razer Blade is the world’s first true gaming laptop.
- 2.8GHz Intel Core i7 2640M Processor
- 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 Memory
- 17.3″ LED Backlit Display (1920×1080)
- NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M with NVIDIA Optimus Technology
- 2GB Dedicated GDDR5 Video Memory
- Built-in HD Webcam
- Integrated 60Wh Battery
- 320GB 7200rpm SATA HDD
- Wireless Network 802.11 b/g/n Compatible
- 16.81″ (Width) x 10.9″ (Depth) x 0.88″ (Height); 6.97lbs (Weight)
The only thing I would find slightly disappointing with those specs is the 320 GB HDD, I mean come on, if it’s for gaming, at least make it 1 TB.
Oh yeah, you can expect to pay around $2800 USD for the priviledge of owning the next evolution of PC gaming.
