Razer Unveils Two New Ultra-Thin Laptops In The "Blade" Line

Razer today unveiled new-and-improved models of the two laptops in their ultra thin Blade Line. The Razer Blade's been equipped with an enhanced 14-inch 320x1800 touchscreen while the Razer Blade Pro's gotten a huge boost in processing power (it's probably better than most desktops at this point). Sadly, there's still no word on whether or not we're going to be seeing the Switchblade get past its concept stages any time soon. Truth be told, the Blade might just be the best we can hope for. 

That said, it's not like either of the two models is of terribly low quality. The New Razer Blade, starting at $2,199, will start shipping in early April, while the 17-inch Razer Blade Pro is available now for $2,229. That laptop's also going to come packed with six new Razer Switchblade User Interface Programs, including one designed to help make studio-quality music. Pretty sweet, right?

Included at the end of the piece is a full breakdown of each system's specs. (via Polygon)

Razer's probably one of the best-known organizations in the PC gaming space. They manufacture a whole host of awesome peripherals including headsets, keyboards, and mice. I'm typing this article on one of their mechanical keyboards right now, actually; it's a purchase I don't think I'll ever regret.
