Razer Edge Announced, Gets $999 Price Tag

Rememember the Project Fiona Razer announced in last year's CES? That tablet-looking thing with controllers sticking out its sides? It took a whole year, but Razer has finally announced the final product, the Razer Edge.

The Razer Edge is the world's first true gaming tablet, and one that was designed by gamers for gamers. It sports a 3rd gen Intel Core 1.7Ghz i5 processor, a 10.1-inch 1,366 x 768 display, an NVIDIA GT640M LE GPU, 4 to 8GB of DDR3 RAM, USB 3.0 and a 64, 128 or 256GB SSD, and that's just the cheapest variant (which is of course relative to how you define cheap), at $999. What's more, the 1.9GHz Core i7 Pro variant will just be $300 more, sitting at the comfy $1,299 mark (the Edge was expected to blow past $1,300).

Unfortunately as with all cost-cutting measures, something has got to give. The Razer Edge's detachable controller gets sold separately at $249, which is kind of bittersweet since the masses themselves demanded that the console's controller be detachable, yet it will allow first and third-party developers to out more peripherals such as keyboard docks and battery packs.

The Razer Edge (plus some selected peripherals) will launch this 1st quarter of 2013 in North America.
