I saw this posted on facebook. Huge fan of this and love the looks, especially the keyboard and mouse pad. However, for the price the HDD should definitely be bigger with a 120GB SSD (SF 2200) and a better video card. Id buy one though, just cause its Shexy!

I want to have a time machine that can teleport (2-in-1) and go to the moment in that meeting table at RAzor HQs, and when that guys says "Hey, lets make the logan be "the world first true gaming laptop!", teleport right there, in front of him, so I can punch him directly in his nose with all the posible strengh my entire body can give, and tell him after "you are so stupid".

For the price I would rather have a Laptop that plays anything at max settings. Keyboard is cool, but not worth it.

If you had Desktop components in that machine the battery wouldnt last at all. Plus laptops reduce speed when not hooked up to the wall

beautiful laptop with an impressive 'portable game' design... macbook-meets-alienware... thin, stylish, illuminated keyboard, programmable 'game pad', top quality screen, good battery life, ... but... ummm... 1. non-replaceable battery (extended gaming on-the-go is difficult if you can't swap batteries)? 2. the 'best gaming laptop ever' comes with a 555M mid-range card that can't play max setting now and "mid range today is pathetic tomorrow"? 3. 7200rmp HDD... for $3000 i would like to see a 120gig SSD... and on that note... 4. entire system is non-upgradeable (seriously! part of 'pc gaming' is upgrades)?!?!?! IF you want to play WoW for the next couple years while on the road... this is your laptop... otherwise... wait for common sense to set in at Razer and let see what 'revision 2' of this bad boy can bring to the table.

Anywhere I would play I most likely would have it plugged in. Car rides, or at friends houses, I'd rather have a portable desktop, especially for the price. If I wanted a battery conserving gamer, I would spend 2k less, like I said, keyboards just not worth it.

While I do like the idea of the touch pad and the ability to customize it, the fact that it's sealed and not upgrade-able (in addition to the ridiculous price) deters me from this laptop.

cool idea... but...

well i can see the "potential" use of that LCD, mini maps in all games pretty much, and those bottons could be for weapon selection in fps, hero selections, etc, for rts, and w/e keys for certain mmos. however every game would need some type of software patch or 3rd party program to make use of it. would even be useful in race games, put the track map on there instead of blocking the main screen.

the screen could also be used for say a lite OS with an MP3 player set up for listening to music or streaming radio at night or w/e or a lite media center OS on it with a monitor hooked up to the hdmi and use the little screen for media functions and nav. somehow I don't think all of that is included...

it is pretty slim and light, but then so is the battery, which means good luck gaming without an A/C outlet or car adapter.

and i'm sorry... the GTX555 is not nVidia's "NEXT GENERATION" graphics... its CURRENT gen. however its not all THAT bad at the screen's max res (for all but the most demanding games, and those that actually USE DX11 features.) O wait laptop GPUs have about half the cores (a little more) of a desktop gpu... so yea gtx 560 at least. (192 cores)

Dual core i7? really? why not just use a quad i5.

320GB... yea that's my My Docs folder... ok and a few .iso files. but yea... I'm using over 500GB and i don't even have a large photo or music collection or all of the latest games. just a handful of the large titles and a few steam games installed. GBs are 15yrs ago's MBs. At least a 500GB...

their biggest problem right now... EVERYONE IS BROKE!

edit: final thought... they should have developed a more entry level/cheaper laptop to sell first, as those would actually sell. THEN this one. As they'd have funds from the other sales to perhaps intro this one at a slightly lower price and therefore sell more... Win Win for everyone.

edit 2: ok yet another... they could sell that keyboard/lcd combo by itselft in a slim package, usb for the k/b, and a slim micro hdmi for hooking up to a video card, with maybe a dvi>micro hdmi adaptor on the video card end.

What seems to be certain : The dudes at Razer company are out of touch with reality. They need to get laid and go outside; get a better picture of reality.

"The world's first gaming laptop."

Don't make me laugh.

What the hey?

1: First off, the razr isn't really all that groundbreaking. A GT 555M and a dual core sandy bridge CPU aren't bad, but NOT WORTH $2700! Not even Apple charges that much for their quad core 17", which means something is SERIOUSLY wrong here. Sure the LCD keypad is and thin size are cool, but is it really worth the $1700 premium? I could buy a dang good flatscreen TV and a gaming PC/ xbox for that money.

2: Their claims of mobility are really bogus. Sure, it's thin, but nothing smaller than a 15.6" laptop will fit in my backpack anyway. This would be reasonable is they made a 15" or 14", but a 17" is by no means portable in my opinion. Just buy a dang desktop, and put it in a small form factor case if you want to haul it around.

3: Everyone seems to be missing one key feature of this article. Notice how Intel teamed up and worked with Razr to make the gaming notebook? Anyone reading SA knows Intel is pushing thin notebooks into the market. This laptop is Intel's pet project: it's just an attempt to get a thin gaming notebook into the market and, more importantly, into the news.


So, what the hey? Why is the the only "real" gaming PC when everything else, even dang alienwares, offer better value? This is more like the rich kid's dream WOW PC he can stuff inside his suitcase.

i think the sneakiest part is that i7-2640M is actually a crappy dual core CPU, poor naming convention.

it's not bad if you consider the keyboard alone is about $700 of that price scheme.

F*ck the fancy keyboard. A true gaming laptop/pc needs performance. Peripherals come second.
