Portal 2 Goodness

Though I completed Portal2 what seems like an age ago now, I still have good memories of the incredible quality the Valve team was able to squish into every corner of the game. The CGSociety article covering Portal2 design shows off some of the depth behind the scenes and gifts us with some of the concept art. More at the COMBINE OVERWIKI.

Razer Blade

The play on words in the name perhaps shows the fun that peripherals gurus Razer have had in creating the Razer Blade gaming laptop. Armed with some very nice specs, a gorgeous chassis and the switchblade UI there is alot to love about this stealthy black tech-candy.

Perhaps it looks rather too much like a black MacbookPro on the outside, apart from the black and those glowing green snakes. The switchblade UI with the LCD/mousepad and those neato buttons is the standout feature. No doubt the NVIDIA GT555M makes the 17.3" screen look great with the games running - I am looking forward to seeing one in the flesh...
