Razer is a privately held American computer and computer peripherals manufacturer specializing in products specifically marketed to gamers. The Razer brand is currently being marketed under Razer USA Ltd. Razer's main slogan is 'FOR GAMERS, BY GAMERS'.
Razer was founded in 1998 by a team of engineers and marketers to develop and market a high end computer gaming mouse, called the Boomslang, targeted to computer gamers.
In May 2013, Razer unveiled the 14-inch Blade and 17-inch Blade Pro gaming laptops with 4th-generation Intel Haswell processors. The Razer Blade 14-inch portable gaming laptop was dubbed the "world's thinnest gaming laptop" which weighed just 4.1 lbs., while the 17-inch screen Razer Blade Pro featured the built-in 'Switchblade' LCD display. 
Razer's products are generally targeted at gamers. The bulk of Razer's products are PC peripherals including mice, audio devices, keyboards, mouse mats and gamepads. Razer has also released a laptop (the Razer Blade),a tablet [the Razer Edge], and more recently a VOIP software Razer Comms.
Most Razer products are named after predatory or venomous animals, ranging from snakes (mice), insects (mouse mats), arachnids (keyboards) over marine creatures (audio) to felines (console peripherals). The Razer Blade laptops and Razer Edge are the only exceptions.
