Typically, one of the caveats of a gaming notebook with incredibly powerful components inside is that the chassis is large and the whole system is quite heavy. Razer is trying to break out of that mold with its new Razer Blade and Razer Blade Pro gaming notebooks. (So that's what they were teasing.) The bigger brother of the two is the Razer Blade Pro, which boasts a 17.3-inch full HD LED backlight display and runs an Intel 4th-generation (Haswell) Intel Core processor, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M GPU (with Intel HD4600 graphics), 8GB of DDR3L-1600MHz RAM, and a 128GB SSD. (256GB and 512GB mSATA... Read more...
Razer says that it will introduce a new product for “serious gamers” at an event in San Francisco on Thursday, May 30th, and the subject of the announcement is shrouded in mystery. Razer’s teaser line for the event is, “What’s Thinner Than a Dime?”; an accompanying teaser trailer for the event is just as obtuse, so much so that you’ll probably be annoyed with yourself for even watching it. But go ahead anyway. See? There’s not much there, although the rolling dime does bump into something dark roughly ten seconds into the video, which is probably... Read more...
Looking to get in a bit of Street Fighter action with your Xbox 360? Razer's got you covered. The accessory company has just launched the new Atrox Arcade Stick for Xbox 360.

Over the years, Razer has spread its wings and expanded into much more than just mice and keyboards for gamers. This, however, may be one of its most broad initiatives to date. Razer Comms is the new product from the company, launching as an open beta and described as an "all-in-one communications solution for gamers." Applying feedback gleaned from a community-based closed beta program, Razer Comms now combines VoIP client, instant messaging and IRC-chat features, allowing gamers the world over to connect with one service, free of charge.

Some enterprising hacker decided to test out gaming accessory maker Razer’s UK Razerzone store shopping cart by dropping in a 90% off coupon code. Then, the coupon code went viral, and people started buying Razer gear at firesale prices. Once Razer finally discovered the code, it quickly removed the company but was left with a very expensive mess. What’s a company to do? Retract all those sales and make everyone mad, or eat the cost? Razer is taking the latter path. “While we have the option of cancelling the orders legally, we’ve always had a customer comes first policy... Read more...
Gamer peripheral maker Razer is launching a new version of its Orbweaver keypad with quiet keys. Like the original, the Orbweaver Stealth Edition uses mechanical key switches, only now it offers silent tactile feedback.

On the comfort side of things, there's an adjustable hand, thumb, and palm rest modules... Read more...

CES is chock full of enough new products and technologies to make even the most cynical techie salivate, but as always, there are a handful of items that tend to rise to the top and stand out for being the best products of their kind or for true innovation.  We thought we'd run down a short list of the stand-out products of this year's CES and highlight them here for the HOT hardware that they are. If you’re a gamer, you have to be pumped about this year’s CES. We know that a Steam console is in the works, and we got to feast our eyes on two terrific mobile gaming devices in the... Read more...
Plenty of folks thought that Razer was blowing smoke when it announced that it was developing a high end gaming tablet, dubbed Project Fiona, at last year’s CES. A year later, lo and behold, the company has a whole booth full of them at CES 2013. And the device is gorgeous. After garnering loads of input from actual PC gamers, Razer put together what is, in the most basic sense, a 10.1-inch tablet, albeit one loaded with high-end hardware and also essentially a Windows 8 PC and a portable gaming console, all wrapped up in one device. There are two models slated for release in Q1, with the... Read more...
Gamers who have been around the block a time or two may remember a vaunted product by Belkin -- something called the Nostromo SpeedPad n52. Now, it looks as if peripheral maker Razer is pumping out something similar years later, called the Orbweaver. It's a highly unique product designed for hardcore gamers, offering mechanical keys not in a keyboard, but in a key-based gamepad. Those who swear by mechanical keyboards will almost certainly have to give this one a look. As you'd suspect with any Razer product, this one is highly customizable. It lets users  bind an infinite number of controls... Read more...
