Would You Buy The World’s First Gaming Laptop?
Are you tired of trying to blast up aliens on a 10-inch netbook? Or fighting warlocks and trolls with a touchpad the size of a postage stamp? Then the new Razer Blade might be for you: It’s the world’s first laptop developed specifically for gaming, and it’s got features that put even customized Alienware laptops to shame.
The star of the show is the laptop’s key pad. It features 10 “dynamic adaptive keys” with OLED video screens right in the keys! Each one can be programmed with “an infinite number of commands, skills, and macros,” according to the company’s Web site. Below the keys is a touch pad with a full color LCD screen and multi-touch capabilities. Instead of fumbling with a bluetooth mouse, you can be right in the action.
With 8GB of dedicated RAM, a NVIDIA GeForce CPU, and a 17-inch display, the system is sure to have you games looking and running their best. But at less than 7 lbs. and less than an inch thick, it won’t weigh you down on the go.
What do you think? With the system coming out in late 2011, will you shell out the reported $2,799?
