Star Wars Razer Blade laptop has a $15,000+ price tag, wants users to ‘Wield the Force’

Star Wars Razer Blade

The Star Wars Razer Blade laptop is the latest addition to the company’s SWTOR series of gaming products and this one has an estimated price of over $15,000. Well, interested buyers won’t have to shell out a heap of cash for the notebook as the company states that only one of its kind exists and the only way to score the unit is through a sweepstake promotion where a lucky winner will take home this grand prize.

The Star Wars-branding aside, what makes this gaming rig so ‘unique’ is the custom design adopted by the company. In collaboration with LucasArts and BioWare, Razer has reworked the laptop’s appearance from the ground up. The exterior features laser etched, matte painted aluminum panels and a yellow backlit keyboard. Complementing these components is the official font and iconography from the SWTOR MMO title. The new visual enhancements haven’t taken a toll on the sleek and lightweight profile the latest iteration has to offer. The notebook measures 0.88 inches in thickness and weighs less than seven pounds.
