The Portable Laptop That Might Make PC Gaming On-The-Go Work

This is the Razer Switchblade, currently an "innovative concept design" for a portable laptop computer with a customisable keyboard and touchscreen interface, a device that promises a "full desktop experience in a netbook sized solution". World of Warcraft on-the-go, anyone?

That's one of the ways that Razer is pitching the Switchblade concept, as well as a device that could play Quake Live, with customised keys for game-specific actions. Razer says they're "replacing the traditional mouse and keyboard interface with an ultra-sensitive multi-touch screen, dynamic tactile keyboard and an intelligent user interface that adjusts the configuration and key layout on-the-fly based on game content and user requirements."

As one can see in the gallery of concept shots below, the Razer Switchblade is a tiny little thing. Looks playable enough, but since this is a concept, we'll have to wait until there's something tangible to play with to see if the Switchblade is a good PC gaming option.

We'll be visiting Razer at this week's CES to learn more about the Switchblade and everything else the company has for PC gamers.

    I don't care how portable it becomes, without a big enough screen I would never bother.

    Couple it with the ability to project the display onto a flat surface at a minimum size of 20" and you've got yourself a game changer.

    If they used the new Sandy Bridge cpu this would have greater appeal.

    That Asian guy at the start of the vid make it sound like the switchblade is a door way to the twilight zone.

    Looks to be a rather interesting concept, if they can get it off the ground. Small enough to carry around, yet built to play a variety of PC games? Bring it on I say.

    That guy at the start is taking it way too seriously.

    IT IS A CONCEPT. IT DOES NOT COUNT. STOP REPORTING THIS KIND OF THING AS NEWS.

    so...... its a laptop
