Hardware, Embedded Systems The race to the bottom has wrecked havoc in the PC industry. The only PC maker with decent margins is Apple, and even they aren't doing anything particularly innovative. Razor, though, wants to buck the trend. After a ballsy marketing campaign, the company has unveiled the Razer Blade. The Razer Blade is what you get when you combine the team behind OQO, add some engineers from Dell, Apple, and others, and tell them to design the thinnest, most stylish gaming laptop - no questions asked. The result is striking.

I see it has an nvidia gfx it should melt itself down pretty shortly. nvidia not good in laptops too freaking hot. My asus averages 88C it has gotten to 120c, one of my hps became a doorstop because the nvidia chip unsoldered itself lol

I had the exact same reaction. The i7 Macbook pro get so freaking hot under heavy load that it either makes your hand sweat while playing or makes you use an external keyboard. The razer doesn't seem to have much more fans than the Macbook, so I guess it will be the same story.

I would really like to see a test on how it feels after 2 hours of playing some last-gen game.

Other than that, looks pretty nice. Would love a 15 inches version with a standard touchpad. It's quite expensive too...
