Razer’s tablet equivalent of a full fledged Windows 8 based gaming PC seems to have hit jackpot. The company recently announced it is stopping the pre-order process for the Razer Edge Pro, which is sold out for months to come. The company had started accepting pre-orders for the tablet March 1st.
“We’ve had to stop taking pre-orders for the Razer Edge Pro as the pre-orders have gone beyond our foreseeable manufacturing capacity (i.e. all stock is sold out for the months to come) … We’re doing everything we can to get more units out in the coming months. We appreciate the patience,” said the company CEO, Min-Liang Tan in a Facebook post.
The slightly less powerful and cheaper Razor Edge is still available, but supplies for it are said to be limited. Interestingly, the Razor Edge tablet series is nowhere near any of the present crop of tablet offerings. They are big, fat machines that are bulky, pricey, and have a limited battery life. The Razor Edge tablet devices are not for everyone. The tablets are aimed at the gaming enthusiasts and have been built after its targeted clientele agreed to its specifications and price. It is good they have stood by it and have actually forked out the $1,300 price that the top of the line Razor Edge Pro commands.
Let’s just hope the company is able to produce enough of the Edge devices to keep the gaming community satiated.
