The game hardware manufacturer announced on Friday what it's billing as the "first true gaming laptop" - the $2,800 Razer Blade. Of course, customers won't just be paying for painfully obvious wordplay.

Now that’s a beautiful laptop…
But in the current economy, where my sister just paid $2000 for her new car, not sure how well this beast will sell at almost $3000.
It’s a pity that they didn’t use a higher clocked i5, better video chip, and an ssd/hybrid hdd.
Even in a bad economy, there are a lot of people who can easily affort this. Unforntunately for me, I’m not one of them.
I’m not sure is this an good idea, ask double price for a laptop, with current competition on the market.
For that price I could buy an Clevo P170HM.
With: i7-2860QM, nVidia GeForce GTX 580M 2,048MB, 16GB - DDR3 1600MHz Dual Channel Memory, 2x500GB (w/ 4GB SSD Memory) Seagate XT 7200RPM NCQ Hybrid striped to RAID 0.
If I would choose ATI Mobility Radeonâ„¢ HD6990 2048MB PCI-Express, I would be left with 200 $US, for beer (as for example :P)
I don’t think so that Razer logo is worth full laptop price.
