Razer Edge

The Razer Edge has a very comfortable and remarkable design which allow the users to interface conveniently. Gaming devices are mostly ugly but this won is the top gaming device. Razer Edge is a tablet which make you comfortable while playing games. Some Games can't be played on touch devices. This makes it possible. PC Games can be played on it even if they are modern games. I handed you an Edge, though, the first thing you'd say wouldn't be "look at the fans!" It would be something like "by the hammer of Thor, this thing is huge!" At least, every single person I showed the Edge to reacted that way. They're not wrong: the Edge is the biggest tablet I've ever seen, almost more like a prototype than a finished product. 11 inches wide and 7 inches tall, it's fairly standard 10-inch tablet fare, but at 0.8 inches thick it's like a laptop and a tablet fused together. Or three iPads, or something. It's really thick. It also weighs 2.1 pounds, again in the category of "preposterously large for a tablet," but that's the weird thing about the Edge. It's huge for a tablet, but 0.8 inches thick and 2.1 pounds is enough to make any gamer drool — gaming laptops are typically scoliosis-inducing monsters that require rolling luggage, not slates 50 percent larger than the iPad.

No one's drooling over the Edge's display, however. The 10.1-inch, 1366 x 768 display isn't bad — it has great colors and excellent viewing angles – but it's far from impressive, and far from what I'd expect from such a high-end device. A 1080p screen like the Surface Pro's could have obviated the need for a second screen, unless you really wanted more physical space. The touch experience leaves a lot to be desired as well: the screen frequently seemed to lag behind my finger or scroll awkwardly as I swiped through the Start screen, and edge gestures were annoyingly unreliable. None of those actions befit such a powerful device.

And make no mistake: the Edge is powerful. More so than any tablet I've ever seen, and even more than most ultrabooks and laptops. The base, $999.99 model includes a 1.7GHz Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of solid-state storage; for $1,299 and up, you get the Edge Pro, which comes with a 1.7GHz Core i5 or 1.9GHz Core i7 processor, plus 8GB of RAM and 128 or 256GB of storage — the storage may be the most compelling reason to upgrade, since PC games will fill 64GB of space in a hurry. (I tested the high-end Edge Pro model.) The spec that really sets the Edge apart is the GPU, though. Hopefully by now I've taught you that "Intel Integrated HD 4000 graphics" is a dirty word for any kind of gaming — integrated graphics are never very powerful. The Edge offers discrete graphics, a separate chip for graphics processing — in this case the Nvidia GT 640M LE — that is orders of magnitude more powerful. Mind you, it's not as powerful as some discrete chips — the 640M LE is designed for relative portability and lighter power consumption, not optimized for sheer horsepower — but it's still more than enough to power a gaming machine.
One more thing for your Razer shopping cart: an extra battery, which you can embed in the GamePad, for $69.99. You'll need it, because without it the Edge only lasts for about an hour and ten minutes of gaming, less on a game as intense as Crysis 3. With the extra juice, you'll get two hours and change of maniacally intense gaming. My visions of playing Assassin's Creed all the way from New York to LA are sadly unfounded, but I was at least able to play a full NBA 2K13 game while on the New York City subway (and break my record for receiving quizzical, "what in the hell is that thing?" looks in the process).

I got between three and four hours of life from the Edge in more normal use — browsing the web, watching videos, and the like. When I was doing lighter things, and thus not engaging that power-hungry GPU, it lasted longer, but as soon as the fans kick on the battery starts to falter. For the most part, I just kept the Edge plugged in, either to the dock or the GamePad — the power cable is pretty long, and it snaps securely into the bottom of the device. This device is too big, too heavy, and too cumbersome to be really portable anyway, so I don't mind the battery issues — it'll shut your kid up on the car ride home or last you an hour spent gaming in bed before you go to sleep, and that's at least something.
