Razer Says Small PCs Are In Its Future, Maybe The Switchblade?

Brad Chacos

After the whole brouhaha over the cryptic “ PC Gaming Is Not Dead ” website, Razer’s big secret – as we told you back in August – was the Razer Blade gaming laptop, a 17-inch notebook with a i7-2640M dual-core 2.8GHz CPU, 8GB of memory, and an NVIDIA 555M discrete GPU. Now, reports say they have a bunch of little secrets in the works, too, in the form of smaller, more portable PCs.

"More products will follow including small form factor systems," Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan told PC World . They won’t start appearing until sometime next year, however, as the Razer Blade itself isn’t due to hit the streets until November. The report doesn’t go into much detail other than the single quote. Perhaps one of the “small form factor systems” he’s talking about is the Razer Switchblade, a netbook-like “mobile PC gaming concept design” that Razer showed off at CES 2011 (and supposedly served as the genesis of the larger Razer Blade). Remember the Switchblade? It had an interesting “ dynamic tactile keyboard ” that changed depending on the game being played. In any case, expect to hear more details as time goes on.
