Ultra-Thin Razer Blade Gaming Notebook Aptly Named

Razer has a new Blade. The gaming hardware, software and systems maker just took the lid off the Razer Blade. The company is billing it as the world's thinnest gaming laptop, with a $1,800 price tag.

How thin is it? The Razer Blade measures 0.66-inches thin. It's powered with the coming Haswell Intel Core series processor, the latest Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M GPU, and taps into solid-state storage technology, with boot speeds as much as four times faster than a traditional 5,400-RPM notebook hard drive.

"Incredible innovation is happening across the computing landscape, and the new mobile gaming experience Razer is delivering with the Edge, and now its Blade, is remarkable," said Navin Shenoy, vice president and general manager of Intel's Mobile Client Platforms. "Powered by a future fourth-gen Intel Core processor, people can expect the highest level performance from the Blade for the most discerning gamer."

Gaming on the Go

Weighing 4.1 pounds, the Razer Blade has a rigid all-aluminum chassis, with a 14-inch LED-backlit HD+ display with a native resolution of 1600x900. A custom-made gaming grade trackpad offers multi-touch gesture support. The Razer Blade also features a full-size backlit gaming keyboard that has full anti-ghosting capabilities and programmable keys powered by Synapse 2.0.

Synapse 2.0 is Razer's unified configuration software that allows gamers to rebind controls or assign macros to peripherals. The software also saves all settings automatically to the cloud. That eliminates device configurations when games arrive at LAN parties or tourneys.

The ultra-portable laptop features 8 GB of 1600-MHz DDR3L memory and comes standard with a 128-GB solid-state disk, with options for a 256-GB or 512-GB SSD. The Razer Blade also comes with Dolby Home Theatre v4, featuring immersive audio-quality output that is custom-tuned to deliver a cinematic sound experience. Battery-wise, the laptop offers up to six hours of life.

A Gamer without Heft

The Blade is expected to hit the market in June.

Rob Enderle, principal analyst at the Enderle Group, said the Razer Blade is almost a perfect-storm product.

"It really showcases what you can do now with a gaming notebook. You don't need that 13-pound product that's gigantic and thick. You can buy something that might actually fit in your backpack," he said.
