While we certainly thought that the Razer Blade was an awesome gaming notebook, we never thought demand for a $2,800 notebook would be this high. So high, in fact, that Razer has run out of their initial stock within 30 minutes of putting it on sale.
If you weren’t aware of it before and you’re into high-end gaming systems, well you’re in for a treat. The 17-inch Razer runs on a 2.8GHz Core i7 processor, GeForce GT 555M graphics and 8GB RAM, but is made unique by a row of ten special gaming buttons and a touchscreen LCD to the right of the keyboard.
The extra buttons can be set to perform different in-game functions, while the secondary screen can show other gaming-related screens, such as character stats, inventory or a mini-map.
Interested? Well you’re going to have to wait a bit. According to a post on their Facebook page, Razer has explained that they’re currently working to put out another batch by mid-February, and will be sending out updates to those who signed up for notifications. If you haven’t yet, you can sign up for alerts here.
