Review: Razer Blade gaming laptop

The new Razer Blade differs from all other gaming laptops in the market at this time due to its extraordinary thin and light design.  The new laptop by Razer is equipped with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M graphics card (3GB memory) and a diagonal panel of 14 inches IGZO technology while there is also there is also an option to get the HD screen to reduce the acquisition cost. The IGZO screen offers an impressive resolution of 3200×1800 pixels. The RAM can go up to 16 GB and with the Intel Core i7-4720 HQ Quad Core processor operating at 2.26GHz and 3.26 GHz there are not many games that the new Razer Blade can’t run.



The SSD hard disk can store 128GB, 256GB or 512GB depending on the edition one might choose to purchase. The battery has a capacity of 70Wh and the dimensions are 345x235x17.8 mm while the weight is only 2.03kg. The operating system is Windows 8.1 which will soon become Windows 10 with the new free upgrade offered by Microsoft. Also the Razer Blade provided a great sound quality and the possibility of multiple connectivity interfaces with other devices.



The prices that were announced for America are $1999 for the standard edition (256GB SSD hard disk, 1920×1080 resolution) and $2199 for the more advanced model. However, in all editions the laptop’s body will be aluminum with a lighted keyboard.


Overall, this is a great gaming laptop that can run even the most demanding games and at the same time provide a very realistic audiovisual experience. The price might come as a shock on first thought and it is true that there are decent gaming laptops at lower prices (see our list here). But then again you get what you paid for. Besides keep in mind that Razer has always been at the top of its industry by providing good and reputable quality. So, apart from the price the Razer Blade gaming laptop is something you would want to – at the very least – try out.
