It sells a multitude of gaming hardware, systems, and even accessories. Let’s check out the laptops that Razer will launch in Nepal with their specs and features.
Razer: Brand Overview
Razer was founded by Min-Liang Tan and Robert Krakoff back in 2005. Back then the company had two headquarters, one in San Diego and the other in Singapore. In the same year, the company launched its flagship Razer Diamond gaming mouse. Razer, in collaboration with Microsoft, launched the Habu gaming mouse and Reclusa gaming keyboard in the following year. In 2009, the company launched the Razer Mamba gaming mouse. This made headlines as it was the world’s first gaming-grade wireless technology. The same year, the company moved its headquarter to San Francisco. The company launched Razer Blade in 2012, a year after the introduction of Switchblade.
Fast forward to today, Razer is one of the leading lifestyle brands for gamers around the world like Europe, China, and the USA. The company produces gaming systems, mice, keyboards, and even audio equipment. It also has its own cloud platform (Razer Synapse), RGB lighting technology (Razer Chroma), and game launcher (Razer Cortex). The Razer Gold and Fintech are the company’s fintech products.
