The Razer Blade presents itself as a 17.3-inch frame, with 2.2 cm thick, seems especially fine for a PC gamer listed in the segment. The details which according to Razer make a difference is the presence, alongside the green backlit keyboard, a color touch screen and a dozen function keys LED display making it possible to customize the look . Integration that is logically at the expense of the numeric keypad usually present on the computers of this size.

Razer has hired a certain awesome talent, including the people behind OQO, and the engineers from Apple, Dell and others. These were operating into stealth mode for three years, been working on a certain number of projects which were finally canned for not meeting the standard for Razer. Razer Blade will be great coming out, and it is certainly a product stand out for $2,800 in the market for PC games.

1. Old news
2. Razer once again showed what a bunch of $#!theads they are
3. They just hurt the cause of PC Gaming further**
4. They are trying very hard to be the Apple of Gaming
5. They just proved their bias against left-handed people
6. A desperate attempt at making Alienware look cheap
7. Most importantly, this isn't even newsworthy

**They had launched an ad campaign 'PC Gaming is Not Dead'. Other than parts and specifications, price had always been one of the biggest thorns in PC Gaming's backside.
If they were trying to promote PC gaming, they should have released this at a $1000 price range and outfoxed all other gaming laptop makers.

So their Title should've been: 'PC Gaming is Not Dead*' (notice the asterisk)
As the footnote: *Terms & Conditions Applied
In T&C:You may purchase this product to help us kill PC Gaming.

^^^Haha why do you say so.
As a gaming peripheral maker they are pretty good. I really loved the concept they had. Anyone thinking a gaming PC would be cheap is being naive.

Love this point
5. They just proved their bias against left-handed people
:-D :-D :-D

But on a serious note, I am not sure but I feel they are based in South east asia and hence have a strong affinity for MMORPGs and such. Thats the only bias I have seen. Being one who does play such games, I love this bias :)

I would get one when my PC gets old and the concept picks up. Anyone who plays these "life-draining" mmorpg(s) knows the value of having all "50" hotkeys neatly laid out. Ah bliss!

We don't yet know the price. There is no official confirmation anywhere. I had already anticipated it to be around the 80000 mark.

Ok Ok !!

The Hotkeys placement is alright.

But if they really want to bring GAMING to Indian Market. They seriously need to re-think

1. On the pricing factor.

2. On the specs of the laptop itself.

3. I don't see any innovative feature, other then HOTKEYS. They need to make it more user friendly.

4. Battery Life ??

I don't think anyone thinks beyond the US market while making such products. But then you get 60k awesome gaming notebooks there while we get the same above a lakh.

I agree with this is only for the rich part.

I think everyone is overlooking a few finer aspects and stuck on to the general what is the price and what is the specs part.

~We don't know what OS this runs. If its Wins then it is just as good/bad as any other. If its propriety then it benefits from the feature what we see in consoles- "optimization". Games optimised for the OS will run faster with less hardware requirements. That adds to another problem; the number of games will be mearge hence not every developer will look at optimising it for this gaming machine.

~However that is not a problem for a lot of people. If you play MMORPGs then I needn't explain. But for the rest, if you play something like WoW then a laptop+propriety OS+ WoW + hotkey mapping is like a divine gift. Things like "it cant run CoD etc" are null points. For such people, even if it doesn't play any other game it makes no difference at all. Since it is more likely to support RTS and RPGs it will most likely be a win-win situation for such guys. But I wont be so sure they would cater to just one section of gamers.

PC Gaming = Windows. Otherwise they should call it a new console.

Get a medium end laptop and a Razer Naga. Mouse > Touchpad and you can buy 3 of these and still have cash to spare.
Win so you can actually do some work sometimes.

If its windows then it sucks as usual. I just re-read everything about them and it runs on windows. I am saddened.

Just a week back I switched to my PS3 since gaming on my PC was so bugging.

They should have created a propriety OS. Get WoW developed for this and we are done.

Still hotkey mapping with an extra screen for guides and strategy builders is cool. If it can be used for in-game chat then it will be awesome. For 2800 in $ it sucks. 1500 would have been good.

Razer Nostromo + Naga + Dual screen setup = well would be good too and give the same experience as the lappy above. But hotkey mapping is a pain.
