Although they started out making gaming mice and other PC accessories, Razer has been making gaming laptops for over a decade now. Although there are plenty of powerful laptops, gaming laptops have always been considered to be the race cars of the market. Given that association, it was probably only a matter of time before Razer decided to put that spin on one of its laptops. That day is today with a limited edition of the Razer Blade 16 dressed in the iconic Lamborghini design language to send a clear message that this gaming laptop is more than just fast, it’s a speed demon when it comes to delivering performance and versatility. Presuming, of course, that you can get your hands on one.
The Razer Blade 16 isn’t exactly a new model, having been launched earlier this year. It is, however, still the brand’s poster child, bearing the best of the best it has to offer for a smooth gaming experience. In addition to the latest specs, such as an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 and a 13th-gen Intel Core i9 HX processor, the laptop also boasts the world’s first and so far only dual-mode Mini LED display that supports both UHD+ 120Hz and FHD+ 240Hz resolutions. Such features benefit not only gamers but also content creators, especially those that rely heavily on graphics performance.
With the Automobili Lamborghini branding for this limited run of the Blade 16, Razer wants to really drive home the comparison with a supercar. Of course, neither company would be satisfied with simply slapping on the Lamborghini logo and calling it a day, so they went all out on the details and even the construction of a laptop that tries to put you in the driver’s seat of a race car turned computing speedster.
The chassis, for example, is made from a single custom CNC-milled aluminum block to provide the optimum strength-to-weight ratio. The resulting housing is then finished with an anodized coating of Lamborghini’s signature Arancio Apodis orange set against a matte black surface. The Lamborghini branding doesn’t stop there, of course, and almost every nook and cranny bears the automobile maker’s marque. USB ports, for example, are accented in the same color, and both the backlight color and the custom boot-up animation also bear this hue. The laptop even comes with a free copy of the GT World Race Challenge video game just to really drive home that image.
With such luxurious detailing and a partnership with a luxury car brand, you can probably guess that this won’t be an easy product to get your hands on. Never mind the astounding $4.999.99 price tag and exclusivity in the US, the Razer Blade 16 x Automobili Lamborghini Edition will only be available in a very limited run of 150 units, so it will be a race, pardon the pun, to get one.
