Razer Blade (2012)

The gaming laptop that made a splash last year is coming to Australia, but with all new bits inside.

Australia is now the second country to receive the Blade, with the US being the first. Although it features a TN-based, 17.3-inch, 1920x1080 screen, the Blade only measures 22mm high and weighs 2.99kg.

There's only one SKU available, featuring a Core i7 3632QM with a 2.2GHz base and 3.2GHz turbo, 8GB of RAM, a GeForce GTX 660, a 500GB 7200RPM primary drive and a 64GB cache SSD. Razer has also managed to jam in dual-band 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0, and fits the Blade out with three USB 3.0 ports, a gigabit Ethernet port, HDMI out and a headset jack.
