Razer Announces Razer Blade World's First True Gaming Laptop

Razer announced the "World's First True Gaming Laptop" -- The Razer Blade.

Razer had stated before that SwitchBlade was only a prototype codename, not its final trademark title. The final trademark is now Razer Blade.

Recently, Razer's "PC Gaming Is Not Dead" teaser campaign criticized closed consoles such as Microsoft's Xbox 360, Nintendo's Wii and Sony's PlayStation 3.

This led a few fans to theorycraft Razer was preparing to announce the world's first true gaming Laptop-Console hybrid with open architecture for developers to have the freedom they have dreamed of and wished from the console companies.

Razer announced a $2,799 laptop. No signs of open console-hybrid architecture features.

I hope so I've been following this from when the concept was first announced.

Gaming laptops are joke!
They mainly overpriced, overheating and their battery life sucks!
For 2800$ you can make GODLY gaming pc!

So Razer starts an ad campaign attacking console gamers as "conformists" and their latest product is one that caters to the MOBILE CRAZE, they display mostly WORLD OF WARCRAFT footage (though now they're showing some Battlefield B role footage, too), and is a gaming LAPTOP with a SUB-HD screen?

So this thing ISN'T for conformists?? Oh no - this is for elite gamers who want to escape the norm! LOL, what a joke.

For $2000 less, I'll get a PC for gaming at home, and an actual portable to play games on the go.

Man, I hope they decided not to use the atom processor. That thing is a POS.

nikrel2588d ago

is it? I don't know much about mobile processors, I have a Core Duo 3.0 E8400 Wolfdale. Still runs pretty damn good for being a few years old.

Shackdaddy8362587d ago

Ya. I said ^that^ before they showed the video. It's not. If you looked at the old design, the atom would lag even when not playing anything.

WoW $2,799 for this laptop? Whoa?

nikrel2588d ago

Yeah, I want it but do not want to drop 2800.00 on it.

nycredude2587d ago


This shit smokes it and cost $1,499no tax free shipping. Seriously this that crap is a rip off!

They kinda blew their whistles too loud. What was all that call to arms against the oppression of closed console monopoly, and PC and Console gamers uniting --- I seriously thought they would launch a pc/console hybrid architecture open to all console developers without the limitations of Wii/Xbox 360/PS3 and the multiplayer limitations of PSN/Steam/LIVE/Origin allowing game developers to take care of their own servers and ---- well that whistle did went off way too far to make us thing something like that.

evrfighter2587d ago

well everyone knew it was blatantly obvious it was a product announcement.

I was thinking a new mouse

SilentNegotiator2587d ago

I saw an employee of Razor giving a political speech the other day. I remember it went something like.... "Escape the shackles of capitalism! Hey kid, wanna buy some pokemon cards?"

They pretty much did the exact opposite of what they blew the whistle for, right?

With these prices PC gaming is certain to be dead lol
