I guess the only thing i see about this laptop that is nice for gamers is that touchpad monitor and the hot keys above that, but other than that, it's nothing special. Performance wise, you can probably get better gaming portable laptops, plus it's so expensive too.
Ok, I might also give extra kudos to the fact that the laptop seems to be quite nice and slim, but to be honest, I got one of the recent Macbook Pro's, paid about $500 less than what Razer is asking for (Macbook Pro = $2300) (Razer Blade = $2799), I can have Mac OSX and Windows 7 as bootcamp and play any Windows games I want, and my laptop has a 1680x1050 res, Core i7-2720QM Sandy Bridge Processor 3.3GHz with Turbo, and an AMD 6750M graphics. From what it seems like even an overpriced Macbook Pro is way cheaper than this RAZER laptop compared to performance. Then again you can get a standard PC gaming laptop from ASUS for half the price with same or close to the same performance.
So here is how I see it:
- RAZER Blade - $2799 - 2640M Procesessor, GeForce 555M GPU, 8GB Memory
- Macbook Pro (Early 2011 Model) - $2300 (with $300 student discount) - 2720QM Processor, AMD 6750M GPU, 8GB Memory
- Standard PC Laptop - $1199 -Same specs as the other laptops, or slightly higher
What you get from each:
- Razer - Fancy keyboard and touchpad with extra hotkeys, slim design.
- Macbook Pro - Mac OSX or Windows 7, slim design.
- Standard PC Laptop - Cheaper Price, Thicker casing, But better hardware. (Probably best performer)
I don't think it's worth it at all, what do you guys think?
