    Razer delayed the market release of its much touted Blade 17-inch gaming notebook. Originally slated for Q4 2011, it will now only ship sometime in Q1 2012. This delay is caused due to a last-minute specifications change, of using a 256 GB solid-state drive instead of a 320 GB hard disk drive (original specs). To those looking forward to buying it, Razer apologized for the delay, but to those who already placed orders (pre-orders) for the Blade, Razer announced that it's giving away coupons for a free Razer Orochi Black Edition gaming mouse that will ship with their Blades. Earlier this week, Razer announced a delay in shipments of its Tiamat 7.1 channel gaming headset.

    Right....because they couldn't last minute buy a few SSDs so they could sell them to the ten people who would actually purchase this.

    Looks awesome, from an aesthetics standpoint. But $5000 for the listed specs is ridiculous.

    Probably caused from how some of the prototypes were stolen :roll:

    I don't think razer has come out with anything worth while since the death adders and copper head mice, even though they have dabbled in a few things sicne then.

    I like the looks of their XBOX360 controller rip off, but it's an XBOX 360 design.

    A laptop for $2799.99 and a free mouse is hardly free.
