Get the Blade 15 in light gray for the same price as the standard black at $2200 USD. Razer has been pushing its line of Blade laptops harder than ever these past two years with the refreshed Blade Pro and introduction of the Blade 15.

Razer unveiled new SKUs and a second color option for its Blade 15 series one month ago during a press event in San Jose, California. True to its word, the company is now shipping everything it announced just in time for the all-important Holiday shopping season.

Starting this week, the Blade 15 can be configured in Mercury White instead of the usual jet black. The white color option also drops the bright green logo for a more subdued gray one instead. The reskin is meant to appeal to business users where the traditional black and green color scheme of Razer would look out-of-place in a professional setting.

Other than the new coat of paint, the Mercury White SKU is identical to the standard black SKU in texture and specifications. It's worth noting that not all Blade 15 SKUs are available in Mercury White as only the 1080p144 GTX 1060 SKU can be configured with the second color option. This unfortunately forces users to purchase an internal 512 GB M.2 SSD instead of the less expensive 256 GB SKU. Nonetheless, Razer is not charging any extra for Mercury White to be in price parity with the existing black option.

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.
