Razer Ultrabook targets gamers

Posted by Trent Nouveau

Razer clearly hearts gamers, having debuted a high-end Windows gaming tablet (Razer Edge) earlier this year, and quickly following up with a 14-inch Ultrabook that launched this week.

Dubbed the Razer Blade, this slick 4-pound Ultrabook carries a starting price point of $1800, scaling up with various options.

Key hardware specs include a 1600 x 900 pixel display, an Intel Haswell processor paired with Intel HD 4600 integrated graphics, switchable Nvidia GTX 765M graphics with 2GB of dedicated memory, 8GB of RAM, 128GB-512GB of solid state storage (SSD), three USB 3.0 ports and up to 6 hours of battery life.

It should probably also be noted that Razer will be launching a new 17-inch Razer Blade Pro laptop with a 1080p display, longer battery life and additional features for a cool $2,300.
