Razer has bolstered its Blade range of gaming notebooks with the addition of two new devices.

First up is the 14-inch Razer Blade, which is a welcome change to the current line-up of gaming orientated devices.

Whilst most gaming devices tend to be hulking behemoths, the 14-inch Blade is designed offer viable gaming performance without the excessive size.

The device is set to benefit from Intel's soon-to-be-released Haswell CPU, along with 8GB of RAM and a GeForce GTX 765M GPU with 2GB of dedicated RAM to power the latex titles' graphics.

However, the miniature frame comes at a cost, with the device offered just a 1600 x 900 resolution display instead of the 1080p featured in its full-sized brothers.

Priced at $1,799, the device is likely to rival high-end devices such as Apple's MacBook Pro and will certainly appeal to gamers looking to play on the move.

In addition to this, Razer is unleashing a rebooted edition of its Razer Blade Pro device, which measures in at 17.3 inches.

Whilst packing similar specs to the 14-inch Blade, the Pro also sports a 128GB SSD as standard, with upgrade options to both 256GB and 512GB available.

The Razer Pro also incorporates the Switchblade trackpad and buttons, which allows user to completely configure their setup for different games.

Priced at $2,299, the device offers a slight boost to performance for a pretty hefty price tag.
