Over the past weekend, Lenovo and Razer made a joint announcement at the DreamHack Winter 2015 tournament that they were partnering up together to make a Lenovo-branded, Razer-flavoured, desktop gaming computer that would hopefully give Acer and Dell a run for their money. The two companies announced that their first partnership would lead to a special “Razer Edition” of Y-series desktops and notebooks in Lenovo’s range. Hit the jump for more.
What’s different about the new machines that will be borne out of this collaboration is that they’ll have Razer’s Chroma LED lighting technology infused into the product, which will be controlled by the Synapse software in the same way that you can do it for the keyboards, mice, and headsets that Razer produces. The rest of the system will be then up to Lenovo, which will select the hardware inside as well as design the chassis with Razer’s branding in mind. There will also be Lenovo-branded peripherals made by Razer.
“This agreement opens opportunities to advance the gaming lifestyle through world-class product in unprecedented ways,” said Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. “Lenovo is the world’s #1 PC maker. Razer is the world’s #1 gaming lifestyle brand. Together we have the passion, insight and operational capabilities to delight and empower the PC gaming community worldwide.”
No announcement was made as to when the first rollout of these products will begin, and pricing is still a mystery.
