Several new and refurbished Razer laptops are on sale

We may have said goodbye to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but not to tech deals altogether. There are some nice discounts available as we progress through the holiday season, including ones from Razer, which is having a sale on several of its Blade, Blade Pro, and Blade Stealth laptops.

Razer’s sale includes a mix of new and refurbished models, both in the US and UK. Here’s a look:

Pokemon Go to Get Chat App Made by Gaming Hardware Company Razer

Pokemon Go to Get Chat App Made by Gaming Hardware Company RazerHIGHLIGHTS

  • The Web version of app is already live
  • Android and iOS versions expected to come out around July 25
  • App allows players to talk to other players from same team

Razer, which is better known for its gaming hardware, is coming out with a chat app for the hugely successful location-based augmented reality game Pokemon Go. Called Razer Go, the point behind the chat app is to help the people communicate about the game, which currently lacks in-app communication feature as of now.

The Web version for the app has already gone live and the Android and iOS versions are scheduled to be launched on Monday, depending on approval by the respective stores, the company confirmed The Verge. With this chat app, the players will be able to talk to other players from the same team or individually with each other. A group chat option is available as well.

Just like the game, the chat app is also location-based and allows you to talk to Pokemon Go players around you.

Earlier this month, an app named GoChat was launched and tried to serve the same purpose as Razeris trying to do with its chat app. However, due to extensive popularity of the unofficial companion app, it was struggling to handle the massive load – leading to frequent crashes and new users being unable to register for the service.

GoChat’s developer Jonathan Zarra has since told The Verge that the situation has improved and even though now there are two million users, there are six people devoted to keep the servers online at all times.

Razer’s bet on this chat app can be considered a more serious venture than that of indie developer Zarra as the company already owns chat software.

Razer Blade 2016 With Upgraded Specs, Lighter Weight Launched at GDC 2016

Razer Blade 2016 With Upgraded Specs, Lighter Weight Launched at GDC 2016

Razer earlier this year launched Blade Stealth notebook for gamers with high-end specifications. After a couple of months at the onset of Game Developer Conference 2016, it now has launched the fifth edition of its Blade gaming laptop with upgraded innards, a lighter weight, and lower price. The new Blade laptop comes in two configurations – 256GB storage model at $1,999 (roughly Rs. 1,34,700), and 512GB storage model at $2,199 (roughly Rs. 1,48,000). The pre-orders have already started and the shipping is expected to start by next month.

Both the variants of the new Windows 10-based Razer Blade laptop feature 14-inch Igzo touchscreen display with 3200×1800 pixel resolution and are powered by sixth generation Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor (four cores, eight threads, 2.6GHz base frequency, 3.5GHz burst frequency), clubbed with 16GB of DDR4 RAM, and Nvidia GeForce GTX 970M graphics processor with 6GB of VRAM – twice the video memory that was present in the previous model.

razer_blade_2016_gaming_laptop_back_website.jpgAs per the company, while the overall design of the 2016 Blade laptop stays nearly the same, it has shed some weight off the CNC-machined aluminium chassis. The gaming laptop is compatible with Razer’s Core enclosure for desktop graphics cards. It supports USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 connectivity along with Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v4.1, and Micro-USB 3.0. The laptop additionally comes with Chroma keyboard, which we recently saw in the company’s Blade Stealth notebook. The keyboard includes backlit RBG keys displaying several colour patterns.

The new Razer Blade laptop features a 2-megapixel webcam; built-in stereo speakers powered by Dolby Digital; 70W/h rechargeable li-ion battery; measures 17.7×345.4×236.2mm, and weighs 1.9 kg approximately.
