Razer was founded back in 1998 to create a specialty gaming mouse called the 'Boomslang.' The company was well known in the professional gaming world for years, but the general public didn't take much notice until 2009 when they entered the console peripheral market. In 2011, the company burst into the spotlight with their Razer Switchblade prototype.
Now Razer has unveiled the first product based on the Swtichblade, a gaming laptop with a full keyboard, a set of 10 customizable LCD buttons, and a touchscreen touchpad. The Razer Blade is an impressive piece of technology that, in addition to its customized gaming controls, features an Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M graphics card, 320 7200rpm SATA hard drive, and a 17.3" 1920x1080 resolution display. The Blade is also very compact despite all of those features and measures in at just .88" thick.
While the Blade is very impressive, it's hard to see a lot of people buying one. Razer placed the price of the Blade at $2,800 and isn't backing down from that position. Still, if you can afford this gaming masterpiece, I doubt you'll regret it.
