The base version, which will retail for $1,000, runs on Windows 8 and includes a 10.1-inch touch screen, an Intel Core i5 chip, an Nvidia GT 640M GPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 64GB solid state drive. The $1,300 Pro model features a faster Core i7 chip, 8GB of RAM, and either 128GB or 256GB SSD.

Both versions include a front-facing 2MP high-definition camera and will be available sometime during Q1 (January-March 2013).

This add-on (pictured above) features two controllers with backlit action buttons and analog sticks. This peripheral will retail for $250.

Other peripherals available for the Razer Edge are a keyboard dock ($200), a docking station ($100), extended battery pack ($50), and a 65-watt power adapter ($50).
