Razer Edge gets March 1st pre-order date

by

Boy, how time flies when you are having fun – or not. I digress, it was just last month in Las Vegas, Nevada, when the folks over at Razer took the opportunity to announce that they have successfully put together all the best elements possible of a gaming notebook/tablet, taking input from hardcore gamers who know best what they want, and asking the engineering team to conjure a miracle, resulting in the announcement of the Razer Edge. Well, we did take a good look at its specifications back then, but there is no harm in going through the list again considering how Razer has just placed the Razer Edge on pre-order from March 1st, and shipping it set to commence sometime later in the same month. It is definitely going to be an interesting gaming spring and summer, for sure!

Razer did say that all purchased units during the pre-order period will be shipped to consumers later that very same month, and we do wonder whether there will be enough supply to keep up with voracious demand, assuming that happens, of course. The Razer Edge is touted to be the most powerful tablet in the world, and before it is even released to the mass market, you might be interested to know that it has already picked up its fair share of awards, having swept eight gongs at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), where among them include CNET’s “Best of Show” award.

Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director, had this to add about the Razer Edge, “The Razer Edge combines the features of full-functioning PCs, touch-enabled tablets and gaming consoles into one incredible, portable form factor. Furthermore, the Razer Edge’s powerful chipset, unique among all tablet computers, ensures that you can take advantage of the world’s most sophisticated games, programs and apps on these multiple platforms anytime.”

The Razer Edge will be powered by an Intel i5 processor and have a 64GB SSD, while the Razer Edge Pro sports an Intel i7 processor with an option for a 128GB or 256GB SSD. Its gamepad controller, home console dock and extended battery accessories will also be up for pre-order at the same time, although the optional keyboard dock is due for a launch in Q3 later this year. Prices for the Razer Edge begins at $999 and goes north from there.
