The latest Razer Blade gaming laptop, unveiled today, features a GeForce GTX 970M graphics card, IGZO display panel, 16GB of 1600 MHz DDR3L memory and when closed is .70 of an inch thick.

The Razer Blade, which went on sale today, starts at $2,199 for the IGZO model and $1,999 for the HD model. It will also be available in some Microsoft Stores starting Feb. 16.

"When we debuted the Razer Blade in 2013, we set the benchmark for gaming laptops - and other companies worldwide have followed in our footsteps," says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. "We continue to listen as gamer needs evolve and the new Razer Blade again sets the industry standard by which gaming laptops are measured."

Housed in a precision-cut CNC aluminum chassis, the Razer Blade features a custom-designed track pad and backlit gaming-grade keyboard that has anti-ghosting capabilities and programmable keys powered by Razer's Synapse 2. software.
