Last summer, at E3 2011 in Los Angeles, Razer unveiled their specially made keyboard designed to play Bioware’s Star Wars: The Old Republic. Now, in Seattle, PaxPrime 2011 was the place where Razer unveiled their Blade.
The Razer Blade is a 17.3-inch gaming laptop that has a fast Intel Core i7 processor and high performance NVIDIA GeForce graphic processor designed from a lightweight aluminum chassis.
The Blade also has a Switchblade User Interface, which has a has 10 adaptive tactile keys. Each one has the ability to be a tiny screen in and of itself. There is also a multi-touch LCD panel that is made to work like a touchpad, and it can display important gaming information like maps in MMOs.
Razer claims that its Blade is a thinner than less than half that of current mobile gaming systems at 0.88 inches. It also weighs in at 6.97 lbs, much lighter than most gaming laptops.
Other features include an integrated 60 Wh Battery, 320GB 7200rpm SATA HDD, Wireless Network 802.11 b/g/n compatible, as well as a built-in HD Webcam.
As you can see in the image here, I could only get a shot of it under glass. I didn’t get a chance to try it out, and it will be available in Q4 for a price of $2799.99.
