Hands on: Razer Blade review
Source: Techradar English
Our time with the Razer Blade at PAX Prime 2012 was all too brief, but we were intrigued by the combination of raw power, tight form factor and the stunning Switchblade UI. The Blade impressed us when it was first announced in August 2011 as part of Razer's "PC Gaming's Not Dead campaign", and the San Diego-based computer maker has certainly made its point. This new redesign is very exciting, especially at the not-unaffordable price point of $2499. We look forward to putting the Razer Blade through its paces for a full review!

Razer made a huge splash with the Blade at CES 2012 thanks to its extremely thin profile, fancy LCD backlit keys and trackpad and promise of high gaming performance. For the most part, this system does deliever as being the thinnest 17-inch on the market with its unique trackpad and programmable buttons.

You can't accuse Razer of playing it safe. Razer's first laptop, the Razer Blade, is a thin gaming computer with some futuristic design touches, but a high price means you're paying for design -- and for the second-screen signature Switchblade UI interface that doesn't do as much as we hoped it would...yet.

The Razer Blade Review
Source: AnandTech English
Before starting on the Blade itself, let’s talk about what it represents to Razer as a company. This is Razer’s first foray into the PC space, and it’s a very, very solid first effort. There are definitely some details that show they’re new to this game, but they’re the kinds of things that Razer will figure out as they move forward.

Unfortunately it's going to be out of reach of many and I really hope Razer come back soon with a cheaper model, maybe a 15-inch version with some cut down specs, to open up the Blade laptop to the mass gaming market. To Min and the rest of the Razer team, just don't ditch the SSD though and keep all your cool bits you added to the Blade, as it is a really good product in my opinion and deserves the hype surrounding it. Now, I think I was about to install Battlefield 3 on the Blade, allow me to get back to it, will you?

Razer Blade review: hands-on
Source: T3 English
The Razer Blade is definitely a niche product, and an odd one at that. You’ll get some fast hardware in a well-designed package, but because of the placement of the touch screen, the laptop feels really wide. Even though this thing comes equipped with a large 17.3-inch screen, there’s no optical drive, and hardcore gamers might also find that they’ll run out of space pretty quickly with only 256GB on the SSD. With a $2,700 sticker price, you probably have some incredibly specific gaming needs if you’re the target for this machine.

Razer Blade: Eyes-on With the 'Future' of PC Gaming
Source: PC World English
It takes quite a bit of bravado to claim that this machine is going to "save PC gaming," but I can see where Razer's going with this. Consoles have stolen the limelight, largely leaving us PC gaming fans stuck with shoddy ports. A product like the Blade is supposed to get people talking again, about the unique features and opportunities you can only get on a PC. I'm still partial to desktops, and that $2800 price tag gives me pause -- it's closer to the higher end of the desktop replacement category. But well heeled gamers take note: this is one to watch.

90% Razer Blade (R2) Gaming Laptop Review
Source: Hardwareheaven English
Starting with the build quality and design of the new Razer Blade we have a system which has taken the Ultrabook concept and built a gaming system around it. This of course means a significant change in size to accommodate the large 17" display but also allows a much more flexible choice of components. The overall build quality of the Blade is very good with the metal chassis finished nicely.

Razer's New Blade system corrects many of the performance issues that plagued the original model of thin gaming laptop. In particular, the graphics and processor and now much closer to a full gaming system than the past model. The drawback still is the extreme price tag that is nearly a thousand dollars more than many similarly performance equipped systems.

So if you're a LAN party aficionado looking for something lighter than the usual massive gaming laptops, Razer's Blade is a sleek system that will turn heads. But if you're looking to acquire a thin, light 17-inch laptop as a tool for photography or other general use, you'll want something else.

The new Blade makes good on its promise of improving its internal specs to a level we expected in the first place. It's still impressively thin, runs games better than before, and has a striking design. However, the Switchblade UI, while innovative in concept, doesn't yet have the sort of gaming support it needs. Who knows when it will. The Blade is the most portable of the big-screen gaming laptops, and the new version improves on the first.

80% Razer Blade (2012)
Source: PC Mag English
If you want truly portable gaming, there's no passing up the Razer Blade (2012). With its lightweight, slim design, and relatively long battery life, the Blade is one of the few gaming laptops that will actually game on the go. It's also one of only two laptops on the market to feature the Switchblade interface (the other is the previous Razer Blade laptop). You'll get better raw performance if you pick up the Editors' Choice Alienware M17X R4, but unlike the Alienware, you actually can pick up the Razer Blade (2012) since it's half the weight. And while the $2,500 price of the Blade may seem a bit steep, it's not hard to justify for on-the-go gaming.

At the end of the day the new Razer Blade provides a very unique experience for PC gamers. Of course, you can get a far better specced gaming laptop for far more than the single option available on the new Razer Blade, like Alienware; or slightly better specs with a slightly lesser price point, like MSI and ASUS. However, none of those companies have the build of the new Razer Blade, vis-à-vis real portability.

The New Razer Blade: Thoroughly Reviewed
Source: AnandTech English
Though they are unwilling to release sales figures, Razer claims that the original Blade was an unqualified sales hit, with demand far outstripping supply in the first number of weeks after it went on sale. Undoubtedly, they weren’t manufacturing units in any huge volumes, but it’s safe to say that Razer themselves weren’t expecting the Blade to sell as fast as it did. But even though the original Blade was a success, it wasn’t really a hard product to follow up.

While the Blade remains a quirky and wholly unique computing — and gaming — computer, I’m hard-pressed to name a more enjoyable gaming laptop. Using the touchpad instead of a mouse for WASD games isn’t easy, but it’s doable in a pinch — and external mice are still cheap. And hey, Razer would probably love to sell you one of those, too.

It's hard to hit the market with a self-given description as the "world's first true gaming laptop" only to get knocked down by critics.

Razer Blade 14 inch

The latest 14 inch Razer Blade is super thin. In fact, it is marketed as the world’s thinnest gaming laptop. It is super light at 1.8 kg and is filled to the brim with power. The design is the Razer Blade’s signature look is all premium stealth plane black with minimalist green accents. It is sturdy without doubt and the keyboard is as perfect as usual for Alienware keyboards. For those familiar with the previous Razer Blades, this latest offering is missing the unique Switchblade interface. This could be a good step into the mainstream market – most people prefer not to learn how to use new interfaces. However, the Switchblade interface was a spark of innovation that was impressive and exciting and some fans will miss it.

The 1600 x 900 TN display provides a purportedly slightly faster response time by milliseconds and allows a thinner profile, but it is not what one expects from a high end device. Under the slim hood is a 2.2 GHz (up to 3.2 GHz with Turbo Boost) Intel Core i7 4702HQ Haswell processor, 8GB of RAM and NVIDIA's GTX 765M GPU. With the power saving Haswell core users can expect over 6 hours of battery life for moderate use – previously unheard of from a powerful gaming machine. Most games can run at the highest settings, while the most demanding ones will run well on medium settings. It is not future proof, since it cannot quite handle the most demanding games on the highest settings now, future games will be sure to flummox it. Considering the high price of the Razer Blade, this is unacceptable – but the brand is known to have its fans.

Razer Blade 14 (2014)

When it comes to gaming gear, Razer is no stranger. With the introduction of their latest Razer Blade 14 inch laptop designed for gaming, they show why they are one of the top dogs in this industry. The Razer Blade 14 inch runs on an Intel Core i7 4702HQ processor, which comes to no surprise as gaming laptops require the best of the best. The graphical capabilities of the Razer Blade is truly enhanced with its Nvidia GeForce GTX 870M graphic card, which is one of the highest performance graphic cards out there in the market.

All the graphical prowess will be of no use if there isn't a screen that is capable of supporting it. Thankfully, this time around, Razer did not disappoint in this aspect. The Razer Blade 14 inch comes with a 14 inch screen with an amazing pixel resolution of 3200 by 1800 pixels, the best of its class and probably among most laptops. Furthermore, the screen comes with a touchscreen, which is a rare for a gaming laptop but still a nice feature to have, especially when coupled with Windows 8.

Despite this powerhouse's extremely high specifications, the laptop itself is thin and light. It is only 0.7 inch thick and weighs 4.47 pounds (2.03 kg), making it very mobile and easy to pack. Unfortunately, the Razer Blade sacrifices its battery power to give all these benefits. But in its defense, a gaming laptop should not be expected to have a great battery life, anyway.

Though it's nice to see that Razer was listening to criticism of last year's Razer Blade for not having full HD resolution, the 3,200x1,800 display of this year's update feels like overcompensating, since it's hard to get playable frame rates at such sky-high resolution.

The 2013 version of the Razer Blade was an amazingly small yet powerful gaming laptop that had an extremely flawed display.

The Razer Blade (2014) is disappointing, mostly because we had such high hopes. Razer still manages to outfit the laptop with some amazing capabilities, but it feels like the company reached too far, too soon, stepping up the resolution at the expense of gameplay, and opting for powerful hardware that chews through battery life and runs alarmingly hot. Past models of the Blade left us eagerly anticipating the point when Razer could finally bring everything together into an ultraportable gaming system that required no compromises, but between the heat, the short battery life, the display issues, and the higher price, we're still left waiting. The previous model, the Editors' Choice Razer Blade (2013), is still available through Razer and other retailers, so it remains our top pick for ultraportable gaming, thanks to better battery life and a more affordable price.

Razer Blade 14 2015

Razer's Blade series of gaming laptops combine a high level of power and relative lightweight features for portability. Rather than having a huge screen, the Razer Blade 14 has a 14 inch screen with a resolution of 3200 x 1800 pixels and a pixel density of 262 ppi. Thus, images are sharp, clear and vibrant, which makes any gaming experience more realistic and immersive. A unique feature of the Razer Blade 14 is the incorporation of the IGZO (Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide) display technology which gives the graphics extra quality, because IGZO screens work at a significantly higher speed than usual a-Si TFT screens. The graphic vibrancy is consistent over wide viewing angles as well. The Razer Blade 14 has unparalleled portability as it measures only 0.7 inches (1.78 cm) and weighs slightly over 2 kg. The processor in this system is an Intel Core i7 4720HQ with base clock of 2.6 GHz and a Turbo clock of up to 3.6 GHz. Additionally, there are an NVIDIA GEForce GTX 970M graphic card and an integrated Intel graphics card. The NVIDIA Optimus technology is used for graphics switching. There is also a 16 GB RAM and users choose between a 128, 256 or 512 GB SSD.

If you want a gaming laptop, and you want one that’s actually portable, you don’t have many choices outside of the Razer Blade. Thankfully, it’s a well-equipped option with an attractive exterior, solid performance, and decent battery life. Unfortunately, you pay a premium for the Blade’s bright spots.

Razer continues to dance gracefully along the edge of power and portability. The updated Blade ($2,399) retains some of my favorite things (design, keyboard, display and battery life) and updates the rest with a powerful Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 970M GPU. The result is a laptop that not only delivers solid frame rates, but can also easily double as a powerful multimedia or business notebook.

All told, the Razer Blade remains, as it has since 2013, one of the sleekest and most stylish, not to mention most portable, of gaming laptops. And whereas, in our review of the 2014 model, we suggested the Blade was better off at the 1,600x900 resolution of its predecessor, we can now say with confidence that the 2015 Razer Blade performs well enough to work and play at 1,920x1,080 and higher resolutions.

The fact that the Razer Blade 14 is not officially sold or supported in the United Kingdom hasn’t stopped enthusiast users importing it. As we discussed earlier in the review, Amazon are now working with a select group of partners, offering various configurations for sale under the AMAZON PRIME delivery service. These dealers are also offering 1 year technical support and warranty terms, via local UK repair stations. Of course without official support there is an extra risk involved, but hardcore UK Razer gamers wanting the most portable, powerful gaming solution may find this too good to resist.

With a new processor and graphics card, the Razer Blade (2015) delivers better graphics performance and longer battery life than its predecessor, fixing two of the bigger problems I had with the 2014 Blade. Heat is still a big concern, but that's a problem endemic to the category. As it stands, the Razer Blade 2015 not only outshines the 2014 model, it also offers a better overall value than the previous Editors' Choice, the Razer Blade (2013). If you still aren't sold on the new Razer Blade, the MSI GS60 Ghost Pro 3K is a great alternative (and our top pick for midpriced gaming laptops), but the Razer Blade (2015) is our Editors' Choice for ultraportable gaming.

Razer Blade 14 inch 2016

The unrealistically thin yet powerful Razer Blade 14 inch 2016 almost defies physics. Rounded edges, clean lines and a minimalistic matte black chassis provide the design core, while the multi-colored keyboard backlight breaks through this monotone color scheme. The top cover sports the ionic triple snake Razer logo in green. Display on the Razer Blade 14 inch 2016 is a stunning 14 inch QHD panel at a whooping 3200 x 1800 resolution with touch capability. Colors are rich and deep while the detail produced is simple exceptional. This is mostly due to the Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide panel technology that allows for faster propagation times. The built-in stereo speakers provide a surprisingly rich sound experience. The Windows 10 system comes with an Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad-core processor clocked at 2.6 GHz base speed, 16 GB dual-channel DDR4 RAM which is non-upgradable, a powerful Nvidia GeForce GTX970M GPU with 6 GB GDDR5 VRAM and up to 512 GB SSD as internal storage. Other features found on the laptop are Bluetooth 4.1, a 2 MP webcam, a USB 3.1 Type C connector, three USB 3.0 ports and an HDMI out. The Razer Blade 14 inch 2016 comes with a built-in Lithium-Ion Polymer battery pack rated at 70 Wh.

Of the three new Razer laptops, the Razer Blade is probably my favourite. It’s the best option for someone who needs a good laptop for work, a good laptop for gaming, and doesn’t want to compromise in either direction. It’s expensive, sure – but all thin, light and powerful laptops are. And with a slick design, it’s hard to fault the new Blade.

We've always appreciated Razer's Blade gaming laptops for their attention to build quality and design. It's something that, at the time of their debut, was a bit lacking in the world of Windows notebooks. From the start, Razer has always been after a very specific type of gamer. And, it's only in this revision that we think we're starting to see who that is. With the addition of Thunderbolt 3, doubling the video RAM and cranking up battery life: Razer has made its Blade a rather appealing option to people that both work (or study) in visual fields and happen to be PC gamers.

Of course, by that way of thinking you’ll be waiting around for the next big thing indefinitely and never get to enjoy what’s available in the present. As it stands today, the 2016 Blade is an excellent contender for anyone looking for a sleek and lightweight gaming notebook with room to grow. You can likely get a bit more bang for your buck elsewhere although be prepared to take on a bit more bulk in the process.

I’m very impressed with this year’s version of the Razer Blade. It is a very powerful laptop, considering the small size, it gets solid specs, and let’s not forget it still offers decent battery life. On top of that, the 2016 is more affordable than the previous Blades. However, you do have to consider the fact that this laptop still only comes with an Nvidia GTX 970M graphics chip, while soon to be released GTX 1070M laptops should offer a significant performance bump.

Razer's Blade laptop has come a long way from when it was first introduced. The latest version continues to improve on many of the flaws that kept it from being a great laptop for those that want to game on the go. The system offers some great power in a portable package but the price is still quite high. With a little more tweaking, Razer could end up with a truly spectacular laptop.

To be honest, I'm still not sure I'll buy a Blade. As much as I love its solid construction and perfectly weighted hinge, I need to see how long the battery lasts. I also generally prefer laptops with 1080p screens. (Games generally run more smoothly on lower-resolution displays.) But I also don't see a lot of gaming desktops in my future -- not now that external graphics are a thing.

Razer Blade (2016)

Released in 2016, the Blade 14 inch from the manufacturer Razer is thought to be the convenient version for those who want a powerful laptop with comfortable design. With 1.9 kg weight only and the 14-inch screen, this notebook is compact for user to bring with when travelling. However, its performance is still similar to the previous version's, actually there are not too many changes or improvements. Razer still keeps the same graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970) as the last year’s model. This is also true for chassis, screen, touchpad, etc. Yet the Razer Blade 14 inch 2016 is powered by the i7-6700HQ processor from Intel’s 6th generation of the Core i-series. In addition, this manufacturer still develops it with some new ameliorated features for a comparative price.

Design and Display

Regarding page UltrabookReview, the general design of the Blade 2016 is rather extraordinary. Although it hasn’t changed much during a year, it’s still one of the best constructed and best looking laptops. “It’s not the fastest gaming notebook on the planet but at just 4.5 pounds (2.04 kg) with a profile that’s thinner than a dime standing on its side, you’ll have no trouble tossing it in your backpack as you walk out the door”, said page TechSpot. The chassis, as remarked from page UltrabookReview, is very well constructed. Razer opted for the same anodized aluminum unibody design, which is a good move in the reviewer’s opinion. According to UltrabookReview, the Sharp IGZO IPS 14-inch QHD touchscreen with a maximum resolution of 3,200 x 1,800 pixels is still a real pleasure to look at after already two years. Yet, “Perhaps the only thing not to like about the screen is that it’s glossy and has a high reflection factor” (TechSpot’s quote).

Keyboard and Trackpad

For the trackpad, it’s exactly the same as in the previous models. “It works very well in my opinion, correctly registering all my touch gestures without fail. Tracking was accurate and it felt very smooth to the touch and comfortable to use”, UltrabookReview gave an opinion. Moreover, TechSpot supposed that at 10.48 cm (4.125 inch) wide, the touchpad of the Blade 14 inch 2016 is plenty large for a system of this size. Rather than integrate the mouse click buttons directly into the touchpad, Razer went with physical click buttons, a practice that isn’t nearly as common as it used to be. Besides, the keyboard itself is more than adequate for a gaming notebook and the layout leaves nothing to be desired. The reviewer of page TechSpot said that if he had had to single out one shortcoming, it would have been that the key travel is a tiny bit shallow. According to page UltrabookReview, “Like the Razer Blade Stealth, the Razer Blade uses a very unique keyboard. It’s Razer’s Chroma variant, so each key is programmable to 16 million color choices. So if you ever wanted a keyboard with the ability to make each key a different color, this is the one for you”. Nevertheless, also from this page, the reviewer complained that one of the other big issues he had with the keyboard was there was no backlighting for the secondary key functions. On top of that, the media keys are not backlit either, so finding the key to turn off the keyboard lighting ironically requires a flashlight until you memorize its location.

Performance and Emissions

Equipped with a sixth generation Skylake Core i7-6700HQ processor, the Razer Blade should be very capable of essential web tasks, along with some more intensive productivity workloads such as heavy spreadsheet editing, photo editing and more (a remark from page TechSpot). “Unfortunately, the RAM is soldered onto the motherboard, so there is no way to upgrade it in the future”, complained UltrabookReview. The Blade 2016 version falls in line with other laptops using the Nvidia GTX 970 chip. As an evaluation from UltrabookReview, in Witcher 3, this laptop itself just reached 38 - 42 fps at High Setting at 1080p resolution, the CPU was at 83 Celsius degrees, and GPU temperature was 85 Celsius degrees, while the frame rate fell to around 25 - 30 fps with Ultra settings. When it comes to graphics performance, the 970M was able to run most modern games at the native 3,200 x 1,800 resolution at normal/medium graphics quality. Bumping up to high/ultra at this resolution resulted in a framerate drop that’s below acceptable standards. For the heat, whereas most notebooks take in fresh air from the bottom of the system and expel it out of the side or back, the Blade disposes of hot air via vents below the display that channel air up from the bottom of the screen. Using an infrared temperature gauge, the reviewer of page TechSpot found that the wrist rest never climbed above 40.56 C (105 Fahrenheit) during heaving gaming, which is barely warm. But for UltrabookReview, under gaming loads, the laptop gets extremely hot. Hence, it will definitely be difficult to do long sessions directly on your lap. Also from that page, they thought: “Under full gaming load, the laptop’s fan start to get extremely loud. The pitch was pretty high, which made the noise more noticeable to others in the room”.

Battery Life and Audio

About the battery, as commented on UltrabookReview, “The Razer Blade lasted a stellar 7 hours and 45 minutes before shutting down using stock “Power Saver” power profile, 40% brightness, Wi-Fi off, bluetooth off and running 720p movie in a continuous loop. I am pretty impressed with the battery readings I was able to measure with the Razer Blade”. Sadly, the Blade doesn’t follow this trend. Its 70 Wh battery regularly struggles to last longer to three-to-four hours, even when doing basic tasks, such as word processing and web browsing. As for the speakers, they are good but not great. Evaluated from TechSpot, it feels as though the speakers are right on the edge of being overpowered. “Unfortunately, the speakers aren’t the highest quality in terms of putting out sound. Still, as far as gaming laptops go, they are pretty good” (quoted from UltrabookReview).

Verdict

In conclusion, the Razer Blade 14 inch 2016 did not have considerable upgrades as user expected. Yet, the beautiful and high resolution display of this laptop as well as its thin and slim design could conquer most customers, even though they are extremely awkward. Furthermore, the performance of this notebook is not really an disadvantage, however, do not consider it an advantage as well. Yet, the laptop is still powerful enough for every demands even some heavy gaming. “I’m very impressed with this year’s (2016) version of the Razer Blade. Although there are a couple areas that need a little more work, I think they’ve improved in a couple key areas that have piqued my interest” (from the UltrabookReview’s perspective). On contrary, there are some flaws existing, such as: the Nvidia 9 series mobile GPU is on its way out, or a touch display is useless on a non-convertible system. In general, page UltrabookReview concluded that this is a powerful laptop, considering the small size. They really did a nice job taking up as much space in such a small footprint and keeping the weight low and let’s not forget it is still having decent battery life. Press Review by Capuchino Saber

Razer Blade (Late 2016) Laptop Review
Source: Reviewed.com English
There are plenty of reasons why this laptop deserved to win our Best of Year award, but it's really the combination of all those strong assets that make this latest Blade a strong choice. With Apple sacrificing so many critical assets on its pro machines, it's great to see that Razer is unafraid to continue offering users what they want and need in a package that truly focuses in on the highest performance possible. If you opt for the Blade over a similarly-equipped MacBook Pro, you won't be giving up much, and what you get in return is a top-notch typing experience, blisteringly fast graphics, and a lower price. Headed into 2016, it's the professional PC laptop to beat. Even dyed-in-the-wool Mac people should consider the Blade they're looking to switch from the Mac to a comparable Windows PC with the best performance available.

The new Razer Blade brings an unmatched combination of performance and portability, with new components that put it beyond the power of its 970M-wielding forebear. It doesn't lose anything in the process, and in fact gains longer battery life. It's probably not worth upgrading if you already have the previous model, but if you held out for a Pascal card, you're in luck. The Alienware 13 comes close, but the Blade offers a bigger screen (especially important as some might already consider 14 inches too small), a longer-lasting battery, and a nicer design. If you expect to take your laptop with you frequently, or move it around often, the Blade is unbeatable due to its power and build quality, earning our Editors' Choice for ultraportable gaming laptops. If your system will remain more stationary, you don't mind carrying a bigger laptop, or you are set on a larger, higher-resolution display, our recommendation in this price range is the HP Omen 17.

90% Razer Blade review

The 2017 Razer Blade is stronger and longer lasting than last year’s, making that steep price tag all that much easier to justify. But, as the Blade begins to out-pro the MacBook Pro much less comparable gaming laptops, we'd like to see more original features come to this model.

80% Razer Blade (2017) review: A terrific gaming computer with a few shortcomings
Source: Techno Buffalo English
There are other alternative computers that offer the same specs as the Blade, but none offer the same premium and portable design. And that’s why you should consider Razer’s beefy laptop: To receive a level of refinement few others can match.

If you like to game on-the-go, you can't get much better than the Blade. Between the slim profile and top-tier components, it not only packs serious computing power, it's also one of the most portable gaming laptops I've ever seen. Whether you're tweaking that presentation at the airport or watching Stranger Things on your morning commute, it's the type of laptop that works well as a productivity machine too.

85% Razer Blade (2017) Review
Source: Techspot English
The main factor that will prevent people from buying the Razer Blade is its price. The Blade starts at $1,900 for the model with 256GB of storage, but really you’ll want to spend at least $2,100 to net yourself a 512GB SSD. This makes the Blade several hundred dollars more expensive than any equivalent GTX 1060 gaming laptop, even slim competitors from MSI and Gigabyte. If you want the best, you’ll need to pay for the best.

The only other point of contention is how much of a gaming experience can you appreciate from a 14-inch screen as opposed to the more common 15.6-inch gaming notebook models, for which there are plenty of choices. This clearly boils down to personal needs like high portability, yet wanting to have great gaming hardware equivalent to the larger notebooks. If so, the Razer Blade is your clear choice. However, if you clearly prioritize the need for a larger screen for better visual impact, which is quite important for gaming casually or professionally, you should consider the 15.6-inch gaming notebook tier instead.

But at the end of the day, the Razer Blade is largely effortless machine. While it lacks the customization of a full-sized gaming desktop, Razer’s made great choices when it comes to the Blade’s hardware, leaving you with a powerful, actually portable gaming laptop that looks great and most importantly, plays games great. The Razer Blade may be based in compromises, but Razer seems to have found a niche that makes it just right.

However, if you want all the colors of the rainbow and then some, you might want to consider the Alienware 13 and its incredible OLED display. Starting at $1,799, the Alienware 13 has similar specs and power, although it's somewhat heavier and has shorter battery life. But if you're looking for a VR-ready notebook that's powerful, portable and downright pretty, you can't go wrong with the Razer Blade.

People on the market for an Ultrabook, or Windows-flavoured MacBook Pro rival, have plenty of options. For example, the Dell XPS 15 doesn’t match the Blade for graphical grunt, but it’s cheaper, lighter and, if you go for the GTX 1050 option, is more than good enough for video editing and lightweight gaming.

Still, the $1899 Razer Blade does so much right that we are more than comfortable recommending it. This machine has been a lot of fun to play with over the last couple of weeks. Yes, there's better price/performance value for the money on the market currently, but we'd be hard-pressed to find another notebook that performs on the level of the Razer Blade in such a sharp, lightweight package.

90% Razer Blade Review: a colorful, ultraportable gaming beast
Source: Slashgear English
The Razer Blade is an impressive machine. If a gaming desktop is out of the question and a huge gaming laptop sounds like an unpleasant burden, look no further than Razer’s colorful and slim alternative. The addition of a 4K UHD display, latest Intel processor, and increased memory make for a solid update over past models. The laptop’s ultraportable size is truly impressive, but its loud fans mean many people won’t want to use it in public.

85% Razer Blade (2018) review: Looking sharper than ever before
Source: Hardware Zone English
The 2018 Razer Blade is Razer's most refined laptop yet. It's not revolutionary, and lacks any particularly novel features such as a second screen, but that may just be what makes it so good. This seems especially significant, given that the very first Razer Blade that the company announced in 2012 featured a trackpad that doubled as a secondary display and 10 additional buttons with customizable icons.

Comment

Razer: Razer USA Ltd. is an American hardware manufacturer founded in 1998. The focus is on gaming devices as well as accessories; traditionally computer mice. The products were often named after fables or animals. However, Razer also offers laptops under the series name "Blade".

There are reviews on the Razer Blade series since 2013, but not overly many. The market share in the laptop market is low and the ratings are average (as of 2016).


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M:

As the successor to the GeForce GT 445M, the GT 555M is available in many different versions based on different chips (GF106, GF116, GF108) with different graphics memory (128 Bit, 192 Bit, DDR3, GDDR5) and  varying core speeds.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M:

High-end graphics solution as part of the 600M series and the slowest enthusiast GTX model.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M:

High-End Graphics cards as part of the Geforce 700M series based on the Kepler architecture.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M: High-end graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M:

Second fastest high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell GM204 chip from the GeForce GTX 900M series.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Laptop): The mobile GTX 1060 is based on the GP106 chip and offer 1280 shaders. Compared to the identically named desktop version it features a slightly lower clock rate. Games in Full HD and maximum details should run fluently on the card.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q: Efficient high end graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the same GP104 chip as the normal GTX 1070 for laptops but at slower clock speeds. Offers a approx. 15% lower performance but much lower power consumption. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

2640M: Very fast dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 3632QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.2 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller. The speciality of the i7-3632QM is the low TDP of 35 Watt compared to 45 Watt of the other Ivy Bridge quad core CPUs (e.g. 3610QM).4702HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.2 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.4720HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.7700HQ: Quad-core notebook processor based on the Kaby Lake architecture. Besides four CPU cores (including Hyper Threading), the chips also integrates the HD Graphics 630 GPU and is manufactured in an improved 14 nm process.8750H: On Coffee Lake architecture based processor for big and heavy laptops. Integrates six processor cores clocked at 2.2 - 4.1 GHz (4 GHz with 4 cores, 3.9 GHz with 6 cores) that support HyperThreading. Manufactured in an improved 14nm process (14nm++).
» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

1.84 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

3.2 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


82.06%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.» Further information can be found in our Notebook Purchase Guide.
