Razor Is Proving The Power In The Size Of A Dime With The Blade Pro

Razor Is Proving The Power In The Size Of A Dime With The Blade Pro

I remember my first laptop computer as if it were only a few years ago. It was probably about three inches think, felt like 20 lbs in heft, and could barely keep up with even most of the ‘eMachines’ currently on the market. That was a gaming laptop from 2004 mind you, but it was top of the line and one of the most powerful out there at the time. Now, almost a decade later we are getting a new gaming laptop that is not only about as powerful as a desktop, but just a bit thinner than a dime when shut and lighter than the smallest weights in my gym.

If you haven’t already skipped to the video below, what we have here is Razor’s new Blade and Blade Pro systems currently available for pre-order. I’ll let you look over the specs before I continue on.

Not too shabby when I look at it compared to what I currently am rocking. The price is also about the same that I paid oh so long ago to boot. I do have to say though that I do like that Razor seems to be targeting developers, indie developers at that, more than just gamers with the new laptops. Not that one couldn’t use their machines for both in the past, but usually the power needed meant that the machine had to stay mostly stationary. In the end though it looks like I have some saving to do so I can score one of these awesome machines.
