The 2019 Blade 15 Base Model is now the cheapest it's ever been. You might want to have a secondary 2.5-inch SATA III drive or external drive ready though because the primary 256 GB SSD is going to fill up fast.

Love them or hate them, Razer arguably makes some of the most sleekest gaming laptops in the market right now. If Apple ever decided to jump into the world of gaming laptops, then their models would probably look a lot like the Razer Blade series.

However, the Apple-like looks come at Apple-like prices as Razer laptops aren't exactly know for being affordable. Even the 2019 Blade 15 Base Model with GTX 1660 Ti graphics, for example, launched for $1600 USD at a time when competing laptops with the exact same GPU would retail for $500 less.

Amazon is currently holding a sale on the aforementioned Blade 15 Base Model for $1100 to be the cheapest Blade 15 laptop we've seen with Nvidia Turing graphics. It's true that other laptops with the same GPU can be found for around $1000 as well, but these are typically made of cheap plastic materials that don't hold a candle to the high-end anodized magnesium alloy build of the Blade 15. In other words, you're paying just a little more for a significantly better chassis design with integrated Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.

So, what's the catch? The Amazon configuration comes with the slightly older 9th gen Core i7-9750H CPU and only a 256 GB SSD. Fortunately, gaming performance between the Core i7-9750H and newer 10th gen Core i7-10750H is marginal at best and the limited storage can be easily upgraded without much effort.

Our full take on the Blade 15 Base Model can be found here.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
