Razer Laptops – Ultimate performance on the go

Razer is an electronics company that specializes in high performance computer peripherals as well as very exclusive high performance gaming laptops. From the start, the company has always been exclusively catering towards the gaming community; even the founders are gamers – that's how their tagline "For Gamers. By Gamers.," came to light.
Razer first started off with producing gaming mice and mouse mats, then they moved on to producing gaming keyboards, keypads, headsets, and many other gaming-centric computer peripherals. Over the course of their growth and development they have also gathered a very large community of fans, making them one of the few companies with a very loyal and strong fan-base.

The first Razer laptop ever produced is the Razer Blade which was released in 2013.

The Razer Blade Stealth is Razer's latest laptop – but do not be confused, it is not exactly a gaming laptop. The Razer Blade Stealth is an Ultrabook primarily, and is only capable of being a full-fledged gaming machine when plugged into the Razer Core, an external graphic card enclousure.
The Razer Blade Stealth is Razer's answer of a Windows Ultrabook that can stand up to the ever famous Apple Macbook Air. The Razer Blade Stealth has a 12.5-inch IGZO display with either a QHD (2560 x 1440) or a 4K (3840 X 2160) display, both offering great visuals rich in colors along with capacitive multi-touch capabilities.

But what about gaming? The accompanying Razer Core has got that covered. The Razer Core is an all aluminium external graphic card enclosure that allows its user to put in any compatible desktop-grade graphic card inside. The Razer Core then plugs into the Razer Blade Stealth via a Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) cable and acts as the Ultrabook's main graphic card, allowing the users to play intensive games on their Razer Blade Stealth. The performance of the graphic card is ultimately up to the user to decide, as they have to purchase their own to put in, be it the latest GeForce Titan or any other graphic card.
The Razer Blade Stealth is perfect for those who want a single computer that does it all: An Ultrabook for your studies or work and travels, then when plugged into the Razer Core at home, becomes a full fledged gaming computer.
Razer's gaming laptops aren't the lowest priced computer systems around, but their price warrants it with their exclusive designs and great innovation in computer technology.
