Gaming systems specialist Razer has announced a new laptop, which it says is the thinnest ever gaming notebook. The Razer Blade is just 16.8 mm thick, but has been designed to be more powerful than traditional desktop replacements, the company said.

The Razer Blade has a 14-inch backlit HD+ LED screen with native resolution of 1600 x 900, and runs on a 4th generation Intel Core processor, with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M GPU and 8 GB of fast 1600 MHz DDR3L memory. The notebook comes with either a 128GB, 256GB or 512GB solid state drive, and Qualcomm Killer Wireless-N high-performance wireless networking adaptor offering five times the wireless connectivity speed of comparable wireless adaptors.

The laptop has an all all-aluminium chassis, a custom-designed trackpad with support for multi-touch gestures and a backlit gaming-grade, programmable keyboard. The Blade also comes with Dolby Home Theatre v4 and a 1.3MP built in HD webcam. The notebook promises a six hour battery life, and weighs 1.876kg.

"We've designed and built the thinnest, most powerful 14-inch laptop in the world," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. "Thinner than a dime and more powerful than other traditional desktop replacements today, we've created an entirely new category of thin and powerful laptops that is generations ahead of other PCs."
