The Razer Blade is an awesome laptop as according to the spec sheets. At only 0.88-inches thick, it’s super thin (but still weighs 6.97 pounds), packs a 2.8GHz Core i7 2640M CPU and GeForce GT 555M graphics replete with 2GB of GDDR5 video memory, a crisp 17.3-inch LED 1920 x 1080 full HD panel with an HD webcam, 8GB of RAM, three USB ports (one will support 3.0), HDMI out and a 60Wh integrated battery. And all of this glorious machine will cost $2,799 in Q4 of 2011 when it’s available. However, what makes the Blade different than every other laptop out there is that it contains a 480 x 800 LCD trackpad to the right of the keyboard, which could be used for in-game commands, or customized for different needs (including an API that soon will be available), which uses the Switchblade UI concept design. Otherwise, besides that, it’s just like every other gaming laptop out there, except it’s built by Razer. And therefore is probably pretty awesome. Like, so awesome that I want one. Like, coolest laptop of the year, or something.
PR after the jump.
