Razer Unleashes The Latest Series Of Blade Laptops

When it comes to PC gaming most people tend to use desktop machines. After all, you can build a desktop from the ground up, and often times you can make yourself a great gaming PC for not a lot of money. The only major problem with a desktop is that they’re big and bulky, and if you don’t have the space that can be a problem.

And in this ever-expanding world it’s not too uncommon to see plenty of PC gamers with laptops. If you’re thinking about getting a laptop for gaming, you might want to look at Razer’s 2013 line of it’s Blade laptops, which come in 2 variants. The new 14-inch Blade (an LED-backlit HD+ display with a resolution of 1600 x 900)  is being powered by Intel’s 4th generation Core processor, Haswell. It comes with 8 gigs of RAM and a GeForce GTX 765, and has a SATA III SSD that comes in 128, 256, or 512 GBs. The battery on it will last up to 6 hours, and what’s more space is not an issue as it’s merely 2/3rds of an inch thick. Of course, with this much power in a small system it does not come cheap, as it’s starting price is at $1,799.99.

The 17-inch Razer Blade Pro is pretty similar to the 14-inch model internally, but it’s got some extra features that helps make up for the $2,300 price tag. The 1920 x 1080 LED Backlit display is a step up from the 1600 x 900 that the 14-inch model carries, and if you’re looking to make sure you don’t have any issues with wireless, the Pro comes with an Ethernet port as well. One other big thing that comes on the Pro is their proprietary capacitive multitouch LCD display/trackpad, which I’ll admit it looks pretty cool, though admittedly I don’t know enough about it to know if it’s really worth it. If you do want to pick up one of these rigs, though, you’ll be glad to know that pre-orders start on June 3rd.
