Blade (early 2012) | Razer
Razer's Blade gaming laptop has spent quite a while in development, but it's finally coming in January for $2,799, and we were able to get our hands on it today at CES.
Razer will miss the Q4 shipping dates for its Blade gaming laptop and Tiamat 7.1 surround sound headset, saying that both products should be with customers by the end of January. By way of an apology, the company is giving freebies away to customers who sign up for notifications on the products.
Razer's Blade gaming laptop should be available for pre-order in the next few days, with units shipping in time for Christmas. It also bumped the specs by dropping in a 256GB SSD.
Razer posted on its Facebook page that someone stole two prototypes of its Razer Blade gaming laptop from its R&D lab on November 5th. The company told Kotaku that the perpetrator had access to the company's lobby, and police are reportedly going to examine the log of people who used their security cards that weekend.
