â€œThe Razer Blade is a full aluminum chassis gaming laptop featuring true portability, incredible performance, and an all-new revolutionary user interface. Razer is introducing the worldâ€™s first true gaming laptop.â€
With an intro like that from the CES website, any gamer would probably want to get their hands on the Razer Blade and see if it lives up to its reputation. By the way, a glowing description is not the only thing that CES heaped on this laptop, but also the 2012 Best in Innovation Award for Gaming Hardware and Accessories.
Released in the market just last August, the Razer Blade is a laptop like no other in terms of performance with its 64Bit dual core 2nd generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB DDR RAM, and NVIDIA GeForce graphics processor. All this power doesnâ€™t make it crazily heavy though, with the 17â€ laptop weighing in at 6.9lbs. More impressively, it is incredibly thin and is in fact almost an inch thinner than the average gaming laptop being only 0.88 inches thick (compared to 1.7-inch gaming laptops).
What makes this a gaming laptop unlike no other though is the Switchblade UI that I am personally raring to test. The UI comes with pre-defined profiles for popular games like Battlefield 3 and League of Legends, but is also fully customizable for gamers who are used to their own keysets. It also has a really cool LCD panel that doubles as an in-game information display and multi-touchpad, depending on the gamerâ€™s preference.
So guess which laptop Iâ€™m craving for this Christmas?
