Razer makes a world claim of its own. The game-system maker says that its new Razer Blade is the thinnest gaming laptop in the world. Thinner, even, than a dime (standing upright). Packed into a 0.66-inch frame is an Intel Core i7-4702HQ quad-core processor running at up to 3.2GHz, 8 GB of 1,600MHz DDR3L memory, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M graphics chip with 2 GB of dedicated DDR5 memory as well as Intel's HD4600 GPU. Also inside are a 14-inch 1,600-x-900 LED-lit display, an SSD up to 512 GB, three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI port with Dolby v4 7.1 codec support, backlit keyboard, webcam, mic array and 70Wh lithium-ion polymer battery. Starting list is $1,799 with 128-GB SSD.
