Razer has upgraded its Blade 15 Base Model with current-generation hardware alongside its sibling, the Razer Blade 17. As its name suggests, the Razer Blade 15 Base Model is a more cost-effective variant of the Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model, which has already received the aforementioned hardware refresh. The Razer Blade 15 Base model price starts at US$1,799/€1,899. One can pre-order it from Razer's official website effective immediately.

Moving on to the Razer Blade 15 Base Model specifications, we get an 11th-generation Intel Core i7-11800H processor coupled with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card. Alternatively, you can downgrade that to a GeForce RTX 3060 if needed. Memory and storage max out at 512GB (NVMe SSD) and 16GB (3,200 MT/s), respectively. Thankfully, one can expand the storage further via two M.2 ports. The notebook measures 0.78in x 9.25in x 13.98in (19.9mm x 235mm x 355mm) and weighs around 4.6lbs (2.09kgs).

The Razer Blade 15 Base Model features a 15.6-inch 1440p panel clocked at 165Hz, which has a response time of 3ms and covers 100% of the DCI-P3 colour gamut. A 1080p 144Hz variant is available, too. The notebook keeps the quintessential Razer aesthetic alive, complete with a black chassis, a Razer logo and green USB ports. And yes, there is RGB, thanks to Razer Chroma.

Wireless connectivity options on the Razer Blade 15 Base include Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1. Unfortunately, it does not get a 1080p webcam upgrade that the Razer Blade 17 got and still uses a somewhat antiquated 1MP module. The notebook ships with one Thunderbolt 4.0 port, one USB Type-C port, three USB Type-A ports, one HDMI 2.1 port and an RJ-45 Ethernet jack and a 3.5mm combo audio jack. Lastly, the Razer Blade 15 Base draws power from a 65Wh battery that can be charged at 230W.
