These custom Razer Blade laptops will not be sold.
Razer announced on Tuesday that it has teamed up with Swedish supercar manufacturer Koenigsegg to produce limited edition Razer Blade laptops. Unfortunately, these will not be up for sale, but instead will be handed out to a select few Koenigsegg owners and Razer fans.
"As far as I'm concerned, Koenigsegg is the archetype by which all design innovation may be measured universally—a company hell bent on combining beauty, performance and sheer power," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. "Our shared obsession with extreme performance makes working with Christian and his crew an exciting project and an honor."
The Razer Blade, boasted as the world's thinnest gaming laptop, made its debut back in May 2013. The device sports a 14-inch LED backlit screen with a 1600 x 900 resolution, powered by an Intel Core i7-4702HQ quad-core processor (2.2 GHz, 3.2 GHz) and a built-in 70Wh rechargeable lithium-ion polymer battery.
The list of specs also includes 8 GB of DDR3L-1600 memory, Intel HD 4600 graphics, a discreet Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M GPU (2GB GDDR5), and a built-in 1.3MP webcam. The internal storage is provided by a SATA 3 SSD with 128 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB of storage, depending on your budget. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity are handled by the Killer Wireless N 1202 component.
"Every single detail of a Koenigsegg car is measured against our continuing goal to enhance vehicle performance," says Koenigsegg Automotive AB CEO Christian von Koenigsegg. "This is reflected in everything we do. Nothing is insignificant. We find our doppelganger in Razer—a company inspired beyond conventional reason to design products for extreme functionality and fun."
To celebrate the new relationship with Koenigsegg, Razer will be giving away two Koenigsegg-branded Razer Blade laptops right here. To enter the giveaway, fans merely need to "like" Razer on Facebook, follow Razer on Facebook, follow Razer on Twitter, and enter their name, email address and country. Simple.
Given that this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship, Razer and Koenigsegg customers/fans should expect to see more customized products in the near future.
