Today, Razer announced two new laptops that are going to take advantage of NVIDIA's latest GeForce GTX 765M and the Intel Haswell line of CPUs. 

The Razer Blade is a 14" laptop with a 1600x900 screen encased in aluminum and measuring just 0.66 inches thick. It's got 8GB of ram and can be configured with a 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB SSD. You'll get up to six hours of use out of this one, although gaming will probably put a big dent in that battery life. Because of the size, the Switchblade UI won't be featured on this laptop. It'll start at $1,799 for the lowest configuration.

If you want a 17" laptop, the Razer Blade Pro might just be for you. As with the Blade, this will come with a 4th generation Intel Core processor codenamed Haswell. It also has 8GB of memory and the same SSD configuration options as the 14" version. The size of this one does allow for the Switchblade UI setup on the keyboard. It's also mighty thin at 0.88 inches and weighing in at 6.5 pounds. The Pro starts at $2,299 if you're interested.
 
 

 
Pre-orders start June 3rd on both laptops and you can expect sometime in Q2.
