Razer blade features the Switchblade user interface that comprises of 10 dynamic adaptive tactile keys for easier access of in-game commands, and an LCD capable of two modes, one that displays in-game information when the mouse is in use and that other that functions as the ultra-sensitive, multi-touch panel designed for gaming.
The Blade is an ultraportable laptop that is less than an inch thick and weights not more than seven pounds - maintaining a balance between portability and performance and making it the thinnest 17-inch gaming laptop, till date.
However, there's no official release date announced yet, but its high cost, $2,800, is the buzz around PC gaming sites. Blade will release in North America before the end of this year.
