Promising to help save a bleak PC industry, gaming peripheral company Razer has unveiled a laptop for gamers.
Razer says the laptop promises to provide a spark of innovation into the bleak industry. The Seattle based company's entry into the PC space comes as many manufacturers, such as Hewlett-Packard, are leaving the industry.
The laptop, being called the Razer Blade, has a full aluminum chassis, an Intel Core i7 processor and a NVIDIA GeForce graphics processor. The screen is 17 inches and includes LED backlit display. Razer is emphasizing the portability of the gaming console.
The Razer Blade was designed to give gamers a laptop they could truly use on the go, Min-Liang Tan, chief executive officer and creative director of Razer, said in a statement. Its sleek, lightweight aluminum construction makes it the thinnest 17-inch gaming laptop available today.
Razer says compared to other mobile gaming systems, Razer Blade will be easy to handle with a weight of 6.97 lbs. and a measurement of 0.88 inches thin. This, Razer says, is twice as small as the typical mobile gaming system.
Razer's user interface is another selling point for the console. The company says the interface includes 10 dynamic adaptive tactile keys for easier access of in-game commands. There's also a dual function LCD, which can display information on a game when the mouse is in use and is a multi-touch track pad when it's not.
The price of the Razer Blade is steep at $2,800. Razer is known for making items such as controllers, keyboards and mouses.
