    I apologize, I have edited this post because I think it was originally too negative sounding. Anyway, a few years ago, Razer came up with a really cool design and prototype for a new idea, the 7 inch gaming mini laptop, Razer Switchblade. It was going to be really awesome, and have a transparent keyboard with an LCD below that changed so that the keys would display colorful icons from the game you were playing. Unforunately, Razer didn't decide to actually release the product which is disappointing.

    I wrote a hopeful post several months ago, trying to raise interest in the Switchblade, hoping that Razer might realize that some of us actually wanted to have one of our own. But only one person replied. It's too bad, because now we have Windows 10, and better processors and other improvements that would make the Switchblade even better.

    Razer didn't produce the Switchblade, but I recently discovered that another company is making something similar. It may be lacking the cool feature of the keyboard that the Switchblade would have had, but for those of you who may be interested to know, GPD is planning to release their very own version of a 7 inch mini laptop called the GPD Pocket. It is not aimed totally at gamers, but it most likely has better specs than what the Switchblade would have had a few years ago, and the same form factor. I'm excited someone at least is working on such a thing, but for sure the Switchblade would always be a welcome addition. ;0

    I would have to agree, it seems like every time I see razer release a new product I'm asking the same question; I guess the same could go for Project Christine
