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.

One snag

There is one (minor) problem that I see with it: I can't see the usual pair of 3.25mm outlets for audio out and mic in. I wonder how people are going to manage music and vocal chats when most headphones with a mic come with twin jacks at the end of one cable.

It is an hybrid input/output jack, with 4 wires, like the ones you see on most cellphones nowadays. I think there are adapters to plug dual-jack headsets on those, but I can't guarantee that.

Actually, many new headsets are USB based and do their own sound processing, which is not a bad thing unless you already have an expensive sound card.
