It seems like just yesterday that Razer made us salivate by announcing their new Blade. It’s a 14-inch “ultrabook” that doubles as a gaming PC for when you’re on the road. This bad boy is only available through Razer’s website, but that changes soon. Microsoft Stores will soon be carrying this insane machine. If you’re up in San Francisco you’re going to want to swing by your local Microsoft Store today.
Let’s refresh you of the specs on the new Blade. You get an Intel Core i7 quad core processor, 8GB of onboard memory and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M with 3GB of GDDR5 VRAM. The display is a 14 inch QHD at a 16:9 radio (3200x1800) and with capacitive multi-touch. Head to Razer’s website, linked below, for the full specs.
On Razer’s website you can configure the new Blade to have either 128GB, 256GB or 512GB of storage. Though the 256GB model is the one you’ll find at your local Microsoft Store. As of right now, the new Blade isn’t listed online at the Microsoft Store website. Better hurry, we’ve heard most physical locations only have a handful in stock. The new Blade will set you back $2399.
Those in San Francisco might want to swing by the Microsoft Store located at the Westfield San Francisco Centre on 845 Market Street. From 6PM till Midnight there will be prizes and pro gamers hanging out to help launch the new Blade at Microsoft Stores.
Anyone thinking of picking up the new Blade? It’s a serious machine that we’ll be going hands on with soon.
