It features 10 adaptive tactile keys and a multi-touch LCD panel that can also display in-game information. And at just 0.88 inches thin and only weighing 6.97lbs, the Razer Blade is the world’s first true gaming laptop.

I thought they were originally planning to launch an affordable SFF gaming netbook. Not this overpriced crap in an over saturated niche market.

I also wouldn't consider a 17" laptop portable ... no matter how thin it is.

While I agree with the above comments, it is pretty thin and I do like the touchscreen for info, would I buy one? Hell no

But yeah disappoint

If it were $1000 cheaper, I'd probably get one. But it's not remotely worth close to 3 grand for me.

It's cool and all, but not revolutionary. Lacking in quite a bit of specs that asus already has them beat, sure their laptops are massive but they're good at what they do :l
