Reviews for the Razer Blade 18 RTX 4070

91.4% Razer Blade 18 laptop review: Smaller than many 17-inch gaming laptops | Notebookcheck
The spacious 18-inch Blade 18 is marketed as a desktop replacement without the desktop form factor. You'll have to really value the large screen, however, as performance and features are otherwise almost indistinguishable from the smaller and more portable Blade 16.

85% Razer Blade 18 review (2023 generation – i9, RTX 4070)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The Razer Blade 18 is a very capable laptop with high-end specs and a build quality that is arguably as good as it gets. This makes the most sense if you’re specifically looking for something larger and with this sort of premium craftsmanship, as otherwise, the Blade 16 is more portable and more affordable. For a Razer laptop, at least.

2023 Razer Blade 16 and Razer Blade 18 – bigger, more powerful
Source: Ultrabook Review English
That’s about it on these 2023 Razer Blade updates. I’m intrigued by Razer’s approach for these generations, as they steered away from the thin-and-light segment of performance laptops where past Blades competed in, and moved the 2023 Blades into the realm of full-size laptops, with the increase in size and the implementation of higher power components. I’m looking forward to finding out how where these new Blades stand in rapport with the established competition in this new space. Look for our reviews in the weeks to come. And in the meantime, I’d love to hear your thoughts on these 2023 Razer Blade 16 and Razer Blade 18 models, so get in touch down below in the comments section.

Razer is no stranger to making high-performance gaming laptops. But with the arrival of 13th-gen CPUs from Intel and 40-series mobile GPUs from NVIDIA, it really feels like the company is trying to cram as much power as it possibly can in its new Blade 16 and Blade 18 notebooks.

The Razer Blade 18 is an exciting desktop replacement, with a colossal 18-inch screen and the most powerful specs you could wish for. It’s just a shame there’s no 4K or OLED/Mini LED option to make this feel like the ultimate gaming laptop experience.

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.

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.
