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.
