Enter a free contest and there's a chance to win a completely unique Star Wars: The Old Republic version of Razer's Blade gaming laptop (http://www.engadget.com/2012/09/30/razer-blade-review-late-2012/). The winner sees the system's normally black shell replaced with a matte, laser-etched aluminum gray and the green backlighting dropped in favor of a subtler yellow matched to the MMORPG (http://www.engadget.com/tag/MMORPG/) logo. Anyone who brings out this portable at a bring-your-own-computer gaming party is inevitably going to be the center of attention, although we have a feeling some would almost prefer the second-place bundle of peripherals -- at an estimated worth of $15,000, the Star Wars Blade might be too precious to carry for all but the most well-heeled of fans (http://www.engadget.com/2007/12/08/ebayer-wants-15000-for-darth-vader-wii/).
