The Razer Blade gaming laptop features impressive hardware, including a 17.3-inch LED screen, 2.8GHz i7 processor, 8GB of RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M graphics card, a 320GB hard drive and a weight of just under 7lbs.
"The Razer Blade was designed to give gamers a laptop they could truly use on the go," said Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan. "Its sleek, lightweight aluminium construction makes it the thinnest 17-inch gaming laptop available today."
However, the most impressive feature of the Blade is the Switchblade user interface - ten dynamic keys and a multi-touch LCD panel to the right of the keyboard. While most laptops feature a touch pad beneath the keyboard, the Blade's multi-touch panel is placed to the left of the keyboard to simulate a desktop computer.
The multi-touch panel and dynamic keys will change depending on what game is being played. As an example, the LCD multi-touch panel can display level maps or character stats while the dynamic keys display the user's hotkeys for in-game spells and abilities.
"The Switchblade User Interface on the Razer Blade is a revolutionary innovation that truly defines the new standard for gaming experiences on a laptop," said Min-Liang Tan.
The Razer Blade will cost $2,799.99 in the US, making it one of the more expensive laptops available. It is scheduled to ship in the US in late 2011.
