Modular accessories and a dedicated GPU make the Razer Edge an intriguing PC gaming tablet, but weak battery life and usability hiccups leave us inclined to wait for a second-gen model.

From Project Fiona to Razer Edge (and Edge Pro), the Windows 8 tablet / portable game console / home game console / laptop from Razer has come a long way since its debut at CES last year. It's seen a crowdsourcing campaign on Facebook, a redesign, and now it's finally (almost) ready for primetime.

As tablets go, its an unusual one. This is a gaming device through and through and makes for arguably the most top of the line tablet gaming experience there is. For conventional tablet use however, it really is a touch too big compared to some of the other Windows devices or the iPad.

WarHammer was excellent and the controls worked quite well. Being able to wonder around the floor and play was quite entertaining. It might not be the most powerful gaming PC around, but then you can’t play most in your living room or the backseat of a car now can you?

Ars Technica
Based on my brief time with the Edge, I could see it as a more-than-decent solution for a gamer looking for a mid-range gaming laptop that's also usable as a general tablet. Customers who already have either of those two devices, though, could probably get more bang for their buck.

Though there are certainly with some glaring issues, Razer definitely deserves credit for the bold concept. It just needs refinement.

Seeing games run in Big Picture mode—Steam's solution for putting PC games on your television—is impressive, and it works as flawlessly (when a Windows update isn't causing headaches) as you'd expect a $1000+ console to work.

Powered by Intel and Nvidia, the Razer Edge is built from the ground up to be the Windows 8 tablet that gamers will want to use around the house and around campus.

Although it isn’t cheap, this is a highly effective gaming tablet, with the great advantages of games console buttons and sticks to make button jabbing more enjoyable.
