Star Wars Razer Blade gaming laptop makes a splash, is truly unique

by

These days, carrying a gaming laptop around is not good enough, there is also the status that one wants to show off to the rest of the world. Even with copious amounts of money, you will be unable to pick up the Star Wars Razer Blade gaming laptop which is said to be worth more than a whopping $15,000, simply because this particular gaming laptop is literally one-of-a-kind, being made available to the winner in a sweepstakes that will see the lucky person walk away with this custom-designed Star Wars: The Old Republic Razer Blade gaming laptop. Of course, I suppose one of the more foolhardy millionaires who desperately wants one without leaving fate to chance might just attempt to pry the Star Wars Razer Blade gaming laptop from the sweepstakes winner by throwing a wad of cash in his or her direction, but that’s another story for a different day.

Robert ‘RazerGuy’ Krakoff, president of Razer USA, said, “Star Wars provides the benchmark by which all entertainment media is measured, and the Razer Blade is the standard for true portability, power and innovation in PC gaming. The opportunity to work with LucasArts and BioWare on this fun project is a testament to our common love of great entertainment and ensuring the best possible experience for fans.”

The Razer Blade maintains its insanely thin 0.88” profile despite carrying a 17.3” display that will certainly capture the attention of your eyes whenever you game with it. When merged with an ultra-slim power supply, the entire shebang tips the scales at just 6.46 pounds, now how about that? This is said to be less than 50% that of other gaming laptops in the market, automatically placing it on a pedestal as the lowest profile, lightest gaming laptop of its class. All that power without compromising on style and form factor? It certainly can be said to be a pint-sized killer, just like Master Yoda.

Sporting an SSD (solid-state drive) inside that delivers data up to three times faster than traditional hard drives, the Razer Blade will be powered by the latest Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA’s GeForce graphics processor for blistering performance even at high quality resolutions. Not only that, there will be the inclusion of Razer’s multi-award-winning Switchblade UI that integrates a LCD display/multi-touch panel and 10 dynamic adaptive tactile keys, letting you have full control of commands and functions within your fingertips. Feeling lucky?

Initially I was thinking that it would just be a cheap, unbranded laptop with a Star Wars price tag but on paper it look s pretty impressive. Not sure what the cooling would be like with it being only 0.88″ thin!

If I was the winner I’d simply sell it for a ridiculous amount of money to some rich person. I don’t have the need for such an overpriced peice of hardware.

That being said, I feel the need to look more into this laptop.

Hey Edwin,

Razor blade, ASUS rog, and Alienware from Dell are the good options.

The thing that I like from Razor blade is the glass-trackpad which looks so cool! (never owned though).

Alan.
