Razer Blade Gaming Laptop

If you weren't lucky enough to secure a Razer Blade when they first shipped, but still want one, now is your chance. After a delay due to SSD sourcing problems, the Razer Blade shipped, but has been out of stock for quite some time since then. It's back in stock, however, and ready to be bought.

For those of you who don't know, the Razer Blade is a 17" gaming laptop unlike any other. Razer was able to cram some serious hardware into a very stylish, Macbook Pro-esque chassis. At 16.81in (w) x 10.90in (d) x 0.88in (h) and 6.4lbs, this is no regular gaming laptop. One of the biggest attractions on this laptop is the touchpad (pictured below).

The main difference between the Blade's touchpad and a regular touchpad is not only its position, but its  ten "dynamic adaptive tactile keys with matching icon overlays for the game you’re playing." Each key can be programmed to be a macro for the game you're playing. If you're not into touchpad-gaming (I don't blame you), the touchpad can turn from an ultra-sensitive multi-touch trackpad into an LCD screen displaying information about the game you're playing.

The hardware specs for the laptop are below:

  • 2.8GHz (3.5Ghz Turbo) Intel® CoreTM i7 2640M Processor
  • 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 Memory
  • 17.3" LED Backlit Display (1920x1080)
  • NVIDIA GeForce® GT 555M with NVIDIA® OptimusTM Technology with 2GB Dedicated GDDR5 Video Memory
  • Built-in HD Webcam
  • Integrated 60Wh Battery
  • 256GB SATA III SSD w/ TRIM Support
  • Wireless Network 802.11 b/g/n Compatible
How much does this amazing laptop run you? Well, it costs a pretty penny. A penny worth $2799.99. You can order from the Razer Blade's product page. Don't forget the code for a free Blade Orochi gaming mouse you may have gotten from the delay.
