  • “Blade Laptop:” Possible Gamechanger

    The Blade gaming laptop looks like a notebook computer from the future, but it’s arrived at a prime time for PC gamers.

    The Blade gaming laptop looks like a notebook computer from the future, but it’s arrived at a prime time for PC gamers.

    Razer, a video game accessory company, brought the pricey $2,800 product to market late last year, and the laptop earned an Innovations award at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.

    But last month’s debut of Diablo III, the fastest-selling PC game ever, could finally give gamers in the market for a replacement PC the option of one optimized for gaming.

    “There’s a rapidly growing market for high-quality hardware that targets PC gamers, and Razer is tapping into that,” says DFC Intelligence founder David Cole.

    Despite its price tag, the Blade has some strong selling points:

    Portability. Manufactured with an aluminum chassis, the Blade weighs less than 6.5 pounds — less than half that of some competing units.

    And at 0.88 inches thick, the Blade is half the thickness of other gaming laptops. Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan has said that he expects pro gamers and hard-core enthusiasts alike to gravitate to the Blade because it is easier to carry but can work as a replacement for a desktop computer. It’s also cool-looking. With a brushed obsidian finish, the Blade has a minimalist profile that wouldn’t look out of place in a futuristic film such as Prometheus. Atop the display, there’s a built-in webcam and microphone for video chatting.
