Razer is known for it’s high quality gaming gear and they’re innovating more than ever before. A while back they released the basic Razer Blade, but now it’s due for a little upgrade. Starting today, June 3rd, you’ll be able to take pre-orders on the new Razer Blade and the Razer Blade Pro. The Pro version will have some major differences from the normal and will be better suited for those more hardcore laptop computer gamers. The Razer Blade was designed for games in mind and their hardware is good enough to back it up too. Ranging from the Solid Slate Drives (SSD) all the way to Future 4th Gen Intel Processor. Both systems are incredibly thin as well with the Blade being just 0.66 inches, which is smaller than the height of a dime, and the Blade Pro being just 0.88 inches.

Close up of the Switchblade UI

Like I said both platforms are awesome systems and are relatively affordable. The new Razer Blade starts at $1,799 for the basic 128GB SSD and goes up with additional drive size. The Razer Blade Pro starts at just $2,299 and also goes up with additional drive sizes. Honestly if you’re going to go with a gaming laptop you should consider the Blade Pro due to the Switchblade UI that it has. Basically it acts like a second screen of sorts with special programmable buttons, your touchpad, and a bright display. There have been multiple games such as Skyrim, Counterstrike, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Team Fortress, Battlefield 3, and League of Legends to name a few. Anyway, check it out if you’re looking for a new laptop to play some of the best and more tasking games that are available.
