Razer Blade v2 gaming laptop

Those gaming peripherals guys at Razer have a sleek new version of the Razer Blade gaming laptop coming to Oz in Nov according to Gizmodo. This is a signature piece of hardware that would certainly turn heads and not because it is a gawdy gamer laptop, but because it seems to be well designed and yet boasts cool bits like that screen/mousepad that sets it apart.

The specs are pretty nice with good RAM, HDD and processor plus the integrated and then NVIDIA GTX 660M to drive all those pixels around on the 17.3" HD screen. Notebookcheck's gaming chart has plenty of GPU solutions above the GTX 660M but it is still right up there for most things. GW2 on max quality would be beyond the card though. I would like to see an Alienware M18x with dual 680M's then...

Take a look at the new design with its interesting finish, sleek styling and size/weight that make it a standout for this much firepower. These are promo images, but see more in the Gizmodo handson. Next to see if it is nice in the flesh when it arrives on our shores...
