Probably some gimmicky control device of some sort, a new gaming mouse or keyboard or pad. Or maybe just the Switchblade.

Razer is always so dramatic.

PC gaming will not die. I am a convert to PC gaming and use my XBOX as a drinks coaster.

Some good, some very bad. They've got SERIOUS quality issues on some products, although I do love my non-Epic Naga.

Right now I've got the Lycosa, G13, and Naga. I wish they could have made the Naga with the quality of my G9x, or I wish Logitech could have put 12 thumb buttons on the G9x, either way would have been nice.

Battlefield 3 and The Old Republic are bringing me back to the PC after not touching it since C&C Tiberian Sun (my first PC game).

You need 13 left side buttons, the normal buttons, AND buttons on the other side of the mouse? I guess I'm not as serious of a gamer as I thought.

Between the Naga and a G13 or keyboard with programmable macro buttons, I don't see the need for any more complexity. What games do you play which make you say "13 buttons on the left side of my mouse is not enough"?

It's not so much that I need more buttons its that the past 10 years Ive always used a right side button and gaming without it its pretty hard for me. I play CS, wow, bf and much more.. I usually use the right side for critical binds. I bought the naga thinking I could get used to it but just couldn't.

The LCD panels below the programmable keys is awesome.

Other than that, what can I say? It's a "gaming laptop". LOL.

No SSD.

Also, given Razer's flaky reliability already, I don't see them stuffing this much HW into a laptop that small and properly cooling it. There's no way. Only way I see this thing running full steam without shitting its own pants is if you've got an active cooling mat.

Yeah the LCD panel was the only part that really intrigued me, but for 2800 give me a break...

It's also thinner than the new MacBook at 0.88".

Eh as a gaming laptop you shouldn't really be worried about thinness (<- Is that word? Looks funny..)

Thinness should not be a factor in building a gaming laptop. If it's thin, it's not going to keep your shit cool effectively unless they've got some revolutionary cooling system going on there.

Gamers understand there's no such thing as a gaming laptop, but the ones that do alright are also thicker and that's just understood as being a trade off.

Also, I'm not sure what a gaming laptop proves about PC gaming not being dead.... Any laptop is going to game better while mobile as compared to a console.

Yeah not really sure where they were going with this, it proved nothing. PC gaming is far from dead so I'm not sure why people need to prove anything?
