People have been straying towards Console gaming because of the fact that they are easier to play and are more innovative. There’s motion-tracking consoles, wireless ones and portable ones too. The problem with the PC gaming industry is that nobody has been super creative and brought out something new in a while. I prefer PC’s to consoles, because of the fact that I can build a custom gaming rig according to my specifications that would perform even better than a console. Yes, they are expensive, but they’re easier to maintain and customize as well. Razer, the gaming company thinks the same too. They believe that PC gaming is not dead, and once again they have proved it with their newly launched Gaming Laptop.
Razer, the gaming equipment manufacturer just launched their all new gaming laptop called the Blade, that has some kick-ass hardware and a new interface instead of the regular trackpad. This is going to revolutionize the whole PC gaming industry with that Switchblade Interface that is truly something. It has 10 customizable touch buttons and a multi-touch panel that acts as the mouse. This is all placed next to the keyboard. This isn’t you daily gaming laptop, the Blade is a true beast, but when you look at it, the whole idea is of a regular 17 inch Laptop.
It has a really thin form factor for a gaming laptop, yes it’s a lot slimmer than those extra weight Alienware laptops. Regular gaming laptops have nothing special other than awesome hardware, but this one brings a lot more. You must be wondering what’s so special about that Switchblade touchpad. Well, read on!!
The Razer Blade features the Switchblade User Interface – Razer’s multi-award winning, highly intuitive interface technology. The interface is comprised of 10 dynamic adaptive tactile keys for easier access of in-game commands, and an LCD capable of two modes: one mode that displays in-game information when a mouse is in use; and another mode that functions as an ultra-sensitive, multi-touch panel designed for gaming on the go.
That’s right, the Switchblade interface can be used to create custom macros for a game that you’re playing. For example, in Battlefield or Modern Warfare, you can make use those 10 touch buttons as weapon categories, grenades, mines etc. Okay, so let me tell you what that awesome hardware I spoke about includes:
- A 2.8GHz Intel Core i7 2640M processor
- 8GB DDR3 RAM
- 17.3 inch LED Backlit Display 1080p
- NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M with 2GB GDDR5
- 320GB 7200rpm SATA HDD
