Razer has already introduced a high-end Windows gaming tablet this year, so it’s pretty clear the company things you can pack some serious gaming chops into a small package. So I suppose it’s not a huge surprise that the company is following the Razer Edge tablet with a new ultrabook aimed at gamers.
It’s called the Razer Blade and it’ll be available soon for $1800 and up.
That steep price gets you a portable notebook that weighs 4 pounds and measures 0.66 inches thick. It packs a 14 inch, 1600 x 900 pixel display, and more power than you’ll find in most ultrabooks, with features including:
- Intel Haswell processor
- Intel HD 4600 integrated graphics
- Switchable NVIDIA GTX 765M graphics with 2GB of dedicated memory
- 8GB of RAM
- 128GB to 512GB of solid state storage
- 3 USB 3.0 ports
- Up to 6 hours of battery life (that’ll probably only happen if you’re not actually, you know, gaming)
This isn’t the first gaming laptop from Razer, but it’s the first model that falls into the ultrabook category.
Razer is also launching a new 17 inch Razer Blade Pro laptop which will have a 1080p display, a bigger battery, and a few other premium touches, along with a starting price of $2300.
