Reviews for the Razer Blade 18 2023 RTX 4060

The Razer Blade 18 is the most luxurious gaming laptop around, but who is it for?
Source: Engadget English
Razer says the new Blade 18 is the most powerful laptop it’s ever built. However, with a fully loaded model coming in at a whopping $4,500, it’s way out of reach for pretty much everyone. So instead, we called in a base model that goes for a slightly more affordable $2,900 to try and figure out who this thing is really for.

Razer Blade 18 review: Overpowered and oversized
Source: Engadget English Archive.org version
That said, the reality is that for most people, the Blade 18 doesn’t make a ton of sense. There are a number of other desktop replacements that aren’t quite as fancy for hundreds (or even thousands) less. And if you still want a machine with serious performance that’s easier to carry around, there are rivals like the Zephyrus M16 too. Ok, so what’s left? Luxury and prestige, because if you have a sky-high budget and want a super premium gaming laptop, there isn't much that can top a fully loaded Blade 18. But for everyone else thinking about getting in on the ground level with a base model, your money would go a lot further elsewhere.

18.00": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.2 kg:

A laptop with this weight is comparatively heavy and less designed for mobility than for use at the desk. Therefore, the devices tend to shine less with battery life than with a large screen and higher performance.


Razer: Razer USA Ltd. is a US hardware manufacturer founded in 1998. The focus is on gaming devices as well as accessories, traditionally computer mice and mouse pads. The products are often named after mythical creatures or animals. However, Razer laptops are also offered under the series name "Blade". Razer has also released a VOIP software called Razer Comms.


96%: This model is obviously considered exceptional by the testers. There are almost no laptops that are rated this well. If the reviews or the sources that give these ratings are to be taken seriously, then it is a very clear buy recommendation. Unfortunately, sometimes top scores are also squandered.
