Device convergence race heats up with Razer's game-friendly tablet
Device convergence race heats up with Razer's game-friendly tablet
January 8, 2013 | By Patrick Miller

The convergence of game consoles, PCs and tablets has been something of an arms race and an ongoing trend at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, and now PC peripheral manufacturer Razer has come forward with a device aimed specifically at PC game players.

At the show, the company unveiled Razer Edge, a new Windows 8 tablet designed specifically for playing games.

Additional accessories (sold separately) aim to turn this into a device that suits just about any need. Attachments include a dual analog stick gamepad ($250), a battery-powered keyboard and mouse ($99) for traditional PC games, a living room home console dock ($199) with HDMI out and multiple USB ports.

The Razer Edge comes in two configurations, a $999 base model with an Intel Core i5 processor, an Nvidia GT640M GPU, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 64GB solid state drive, and an Edge Pro model ($1299) with a Core i7, 8GB of RAM, and a 128GB or 256GB SSD.

Both models will be available in the first quarter of 2013.
