Thin as a dime

Razer loves to cram quality hardware into an efficient and appealing package, while also maintaining a relatively reasonable amount of affordability in their products. They are one my favorite brands for this reason: awesome, sturdy tech without making me feel guilty about the price tag.

With the reveal of their new Razer Blade laptop, the slim-as-they-come portable gaming machine lives up to its name, filling it’s 0.66in little chassis with all sorts of exciting and cutting edge performance-ready hardware.

Sounds like it’s time to prepare for a lot of gaming on the go. As Razer puts it:

The 14-inch Razer™ Blade is designed for gaming with essential gaming grade peripherals built-in. Synapse 2.0 ready, with a fully programmable anti-ghosting backlit keyboard, adjustable ultra-sensitive track pad, and plenty of green USB 3.0 ports ready to plug and play.
