The $1,000-$1,500 Razer Edge gaming tablet actually became affordable for many when an unauthorized coupon code slipped through. Thousands of customers snagged jumped on the 90% discount giving Razer a ton of orders—certainly far more than they would’ve gotten with the gaming tablet’s original prices for Razer Edge and Razer Edge Pro (not including attachments). Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan stated that the company would honor the online coupon on one product in their order.
Min-Liang Tan also stated that going through the thousands of orders is likely to take them quite a while and while they could legally cancel orders—as the coupon was unauthorized—Razer wanted to do right by its community and will accept the inevitable loss.
While the discount issue has been resolved, this should come as a relief on the wallets of gamers who were looking to purchase the tablet or the inputs and managed to catch the deal. The Razer Edge gaming tablet released at $1,000 and the Edge Pro version at $1,300 and $1,450 depending on the version. The attachments for the Razer Edge were $100 for the docking station, $250 for the gamepad (plus $70 for the backup battery), and $200 for the keyboard dock.
