The Razer Edge runs full Windows 8, not RT. It has a 10.1-inch, 1,366x768-pixel-resolution display and uses Intel's third-generation Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs.

The keyboard accessory, still in development, provides just one of the various usage modes available for the Razer Edge. It also includes an extra battery option, making the Edge a credible laptop.

With the docking station accessory, you can also use the Razer Edge as a desktop. You can even output the video signal to a larger display.

Gaming on the Razer Edge is totally natural and smooth, at least with the current generation of PC games.

The Razer Edge first saw life as Project Fiona at CES 2012. In that iteration, the game pad controllers were fixed to the main tablet body. Gamer feedback pushed Razer to build the control sticks into an accessory, one that also includes an option for an extra battery.

You can also use the Razer Edge's docking station to connect to a TV via an HDMI port. Plug PC game pads into the dock and the Edge effectively becomes a game console.
