Razer Giving Away Edge Pro Gaming Tablet

By - Source: Razer | B 17 comments

Here's your chance to score a Razer Edge Pro gaming tablet without having to shell out the $1299 USD.

Razer is currently giving away a Razer Edge Pro tablet for free, and you're going to want to win it. It doesn't matter if you're one of those who must build the biggest (literally) and fastest monster gaming machine on the planet: you'll want a free Razer Edge Pro tablet. Just trust us.

As I stated in my hands-on during CES 2013 in Las Vegas, the Razer Edge Pro is more like an AIO PC smashed down into a tablet form factor. It's surprisingly light on its own, blazing through Windows 8 Pro and Dishonored at the default settings like a knife through warm butter. And the beauty of this tablet is that you can install "off-the-shelf" PC games and play on-the-go – no stupid app store required.

From now until the end of January 22, Razer is offering this portable gaming workhorse to one lucky winner who heads here. Simply choose your favorite mode: tablet, laptop, handheld or home console. After that, you'll be darted over to Razer's Facebook page where you'll be requested to accept the "Get The Edge" app. After that, you're done.

Want even more prizes? Recruit your friends for a chance to win five other goodies including the Razer Taipan, the BlackWidow Ultimate 2013, the Goliathus Extended, an Intel Solid State Drive 330 Series SSD, and a copy of Bethesda's Dishonored for the PC. Up to five friends via Facebook or Twitter must be "recruited" for a chance to win.

The Razer Edge Pro starts at $1299 and features a dual-core Intel Core i7 processor clocked at 1.9 GHz (3.0 GHz Turbo), 8 GB of DDR3 RAM, Intel HD 4000 and Nvidia GT 640M LF graphics (Optimus Technology), a 10.1-inch, 10-point IPS screen with a 1366 x 768 resolution, and a 128 or 256 GB SSD, depending on your wallet. Windows 8 Pro is the OS of choice, but don't let the Modern UI scare you away -- the desktop is still your best friend.

    Darn, why did they have to post this for everyone to see. I was hoping not too many people would enter.

    They couldn't do 1920 x 1080p on that huh? Free is good but would never pay $1300 for that.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but should it be "warm or hot knife through butter"? One don't even need a knife cause even a blunt chopstick can glide through warm butter cause it's already soft...

    The only product Razer seems to offer that's worth anything is their Blackwidow mechanical keyboard (I personally prefer the old blue model vs the new one). Outside of that product specifically, their products seem overpriced and overrated. They're very Apple-like.

    Can't wait to pick one of these up. Haters can hate while I'm playing all the games in my Steam Collection.

    I didn't know about this tablet. I just ordered an Acer Iconia W700P. I wouldn't mind having one of these Razer Edge Tablets.
