The Razer, along with the Intel fourth generation processor, has been installed with 8 GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GTX 765M graphics which has a 768 CUDA cores and is powered by 850 MHz.

The laptop has a 256 GB SSD drive fixed storage. The device has been built in a very sleek aluminum chassis which is just 16.8 mm thick and laptop weighs just 1.88 kg. Other features of the laptop include a fully anti-ghosted Synapse 2.0-enabled backlit keyboard. The laptop has a 70 Wh battery, which gives a claimed six hours usable time away from the power outlet.

Both devices will be available for pre-order in US and Canada starting June 3, 2013. Razer Blade will be priced at $1,799 and Razer Blade Pro will cost $2,299.
