-This is one of the most wild-looking laptops here. It's so tiny. It is the Razr Switchblade. I'm gonna turn it around here so that you could see it. This is also a concept piece. It has a tiny Intel Atom-powered laptop from Razr designed for playing PC games. You can plug a mouse into it. It has a keyboard and I'm gonna tilt it up a little bit so you can see the keyboard. Each keyboard key is actually a little tiny display. There's actually a display under here that gives you a custom keyboard based on what you're doing. Now, I'm going to attempt to very quickly launch a game right here and this is a-- this is a concept PC. It's not gonna hit the stores any time soon. Who knows how much it'll cost. Who knows what the components will be. But showing that you can actually get a kind of gaming PC into a little clamshell design and add cool stuff to it that actually makes it usable, like, customizable keyboards, I think that's worth looking at and everyone has been very excited to check this out in person. -It's a remarkable idea. It's also unusual because you usually think of a gaming laptop as being a 17-pound Alienware-- -Oh yeah. -or Dell XPS. This, I mean-- -More people are just playing very casual games on their simple PC. I think we are not. -Exactly. We're having portable gaming. -Now, I got the Warcraft-style keys on here. If you look at the keyboard, it-- it's actually changed to Warcraft-style font on the keys. -Nice. -So anyway, that's the Razr Switchblade and I think it's a-- a super cool concept. Who knows if we'll actually ever see it, but, I-- I think it-- -This is the Best of CES finalist, yeah? -this prototype comes of looking really nice. I believe it is. -Yeah.
A first look at the Switchblade, a mobile PC gaming prototype portable with its own customizable keyboard.
This week, we check out the first new netbook we've seen in a long while, demo the amazing new Lytro camera, and test some games on the funky Razer Blade laptop.
The Razer Moray in-ear noise-isolating gaming headphones may not distinguish themselves all that much from their in-ear noise-isolating gaming headphones competitors, but they're a perfectly good--and affordable--set of earphones for the money.
Razer's Lycosa gaming keyboard has a lot of promise, and it mostly delivers, thanks to its solid feel, smooth typing, and powerful macro capabilities. However, we wish Razer had paid more attention to the LED lighting, but for strong touch-typing gamers,

Razer Blade Review
The good: The Razer Blade has a thin, sleek design, an excellent 17-inch display, fast bootup times, and unique touch-pad UI with a lot of potential for gamers.
The bad: The innovative Switchblade UI LED buttons are hard to customize, and the Blade has underpowered graphics for its price.
The bottom line: Razer's first laptop, the Razer Blade, is a thin gaming computer with some futuristic design touches, but a high price means you're paying for design -- and for the second-screen signature Switchblade UI interface that doesn't do as much as we hoped it would...yet.
