After taking out a full page add in the Wall Street Journal and proclaiming that PC gaming is very much alive, Razer unleashed the new Blade onto the world at PAX. The Blade is Razer's new 17 inch high performance gaming laptop. The sleek design is achieved through an aluminum chassis that weighs less than 7 pounds and is 1 inch thick. While Razer is most notably known for high grade PC gaming accessories, the company has stepped up their game with this new gaming laptop.
The Razer Blade isn't just pretty to look at. It has a few tricks up its sleeve like a new innovative LCD based control scheme that was previously introduced on the Switchblade. It is powered by a dual-core 2.8GHz Intel i7 that can be overclocked to 3.5GHz and comes armed with a NVIDIA GT 555M (2GB GGDR5 RAM). System memory is 8GB of DDR3 RAM and storage comes in the form of 320GB 7200rpm hard drive. The Blade can also connect wirelessly via Bluetooth 3.0 support and a 802.11 b/g/n network card.
Admission into club Blade is steep though with a price of $2,799. For those interested in getting one, it will be available later this year. No official release date has been made.
