If you are looking for the latest greatest thing in new gaming laptops then you might be interested to know that RAZER is coming out with the latest answer to the gaming laptop community. The Razer Blade claims it will be the world’s first “true gaming laptop”. I was a bit skeptical at first but then I took a closer look. Most of the hardware offered by Razer is pretty standard in performance laptops with the exception of a couple of things. They are offering a Next generation NVIDIA™ discrete GPU (GT 555M) with 2GB dedicated GDDR5 of video memory and Intel’s 2nd Generation Core i7 processor, but the thing that is going to making this the world’s first true gaming laptop is The Razer Switchblade UI Interface.
The Razer Switchblade UI Interface is a revolutionary LCD panel and keyset that is completely customizable. There are an infinite number of commands and combination of commands that you can set on the 10 dynamic adaptive keys with the matching icon overlays for whatever particular game you are playing. The panel below the keys is capable of two modes: one mode that displays in-game information for quick and easy access to certain commands that are need to optimal game play; and a second mode that functions as a super sensitive multi-touch panel for the gamer that relies on his/her senses rather than waiting for reactions. The fact that this LCD touch screen is completely customizable is awesome. I’m definitely one of those gamers that has to have his buttons set in the right way in order to tear it up online. This is a brilliant idea by Razer to come up with something that will make the user more involved with their own laptop. Having a configuration that is not only optimal for online game play but something that is comfortable and innovative is a step above the rest. I can see the Razer Blade setting the standard of new gaming laptops. Any gamer will tell you, the best way to succeed at any video game, or any kind of competition, is to have the most up-to-date equipment. Not only that, but having the where-with-all to know how to use your equipment to achieve it’s maximum potential. If the Razor Blade can give you the slightest edge, in that respect, then it is definitely worth a shot. Now the Razer Blade isn’t out quite yet I believe a release date has yet to be reached. I will most definitely keep you posted.
