Gaming in the PC world is traditionally done on a bulky desktop system, spread across a number of monitors and conducted with the highest level of graphics cards.

Well Razer is aiming to redefine what PC gaming actually means with the announcement of the Razer Blade, the worlds first true gaming laptop. "Gaming laptops do not exist today," commented Min-Liang Tan, Razer’s CEO, "Instead there are desktop replacements that perform well for gaming but are over three inches thick and weigh up to ten pounds."

Cue the "Razer Blade", Razer’s built from the ground gaming laptop. Packing a whopping 17" screen, the Blade comes in at under 7 lb’s (3.1kg) and under an inch in thickness.

The Razer Blade not only packs some impressive design specifications, but carries some impressive hardware too. The i7-2640M processor is backed up by 8GB of DDR3, a 320GB hard drive and a 2Gb NVIDIA GT 555M.

Although there’s no official word of price, yet, many people seem to be throwing a figure between $2,500 and $3,000.

Check out the trailer for the Razer Blade below.
