Default Razer Blade Switchblade User Interface Panel Hands-on

What we want to do now is giving you a full hands-on look at the Switchblade User Interface panel that comes with the Blade. I guess in the design phase, the Razer folk thought in their efforts to create a highly focused gaming laptop that the regular touch pad in its centralized and boring location had to go and I applaud them for doing do. I personally cannot stand laptop touchpads and encourage other tech companies to get out of the square and experiment like Razer has done with the Switchblade UI.

If you are new to this whole talk about the Switchblade UI, let me sum it up right now. Gone is the run-of-the-mill regular touch pad and number pad area. The Switchblade UI is a combination of functions that is placed where the number pad is usually located on a keyboard. It is a combination of ten fully customizable buttons with graphical icons (Razer call them Dynamic Adaptive Tactile keys) as well as a four point multi-touch touch pad with gesture support and under the touch layer is a 4.05-inch LCD screen with an 800 x 480 resolution. There are also left and right click buttons as you'd see on a usual laptop touch pad. I doubt these buttons would get used much as any real gamer probably would have a gaming mouse hooked up to the Blade via USB.
