There's been more than a little hype floating around PAX regarding a special PC gaming announcement coming out of the Razer camp. This morning the bomb dropped, and it was a big one: The Razerblade gaming laptop. Sure sure, we have all seen those monsters other companies call laptops, I even have one myself, and it weighs more than my desktop tower. This system, Razer promises, is built to be portable and powerful, and the features alone are making me a believer.
This is an i7 Intel processor, ladies and gents, not some Atom lightweight like another Razer laptop I know. But more than screen resolution (17 inch LED back-lit display run by a gForce Nvidia GT 555M graphics processor), and weight (just under 7 lbs) the most amazing thing to me is the switchblade UI area. There are 10 dynamically adaptive tactile keys, and an LCD that is both your mouse and a multitouch panel whenever you need it. I am drooling just talking about it.
Hit the jump to watch the video and read the specs and prepare to be amazed.
