Razer’s Latest Blade Laptop Delivers Bigger Screen, Smaller Bezel

Razer’s latest Blade gaming laptop manages to pack a 4K 15.6-inch screen powered by Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics into a svelte, sexy, pricey package.

The new Blade also comes with up to 32 GB of memory and 2 TB of SSD storage all being run by an i7-8750H Processor (6 Cores/12 Threads, 2.2 GHz/4.1 GHz).

But that nearly top-of-the-line tech — they still don’t support GTX 1080 or above for graphics – isn’t the real differentiator here. Most of Razer’s high-end, compact gaming laptops are packed with wallet-busting stats. This time around though, Razer made some significant changes to the core design of the laptop to make it sleeker.

Most noticeable to owners of previous Blade laptops is the nearly bezel-less display which now runs essentially edge to edge. That bezel-less display coupled with the laptop’s 0.66-inch thickness and sub five-pound means you get a powerfully small gaming rig. Of course, the keyboard is powered by Razer’s rainbow-hued Chroma lighting system and features a variety of outputs, including three DisplayPorts and an HDMI. Thanks to the more powerful graphics card, the system is also a nice match for a VR rig like the Oculus Rift.

Razer says it also upgraded its touchpad, one of the features I found sub-par in last year’s 17-inch model (along with that surprisingly large bezel.)

Razer also released a couple of add-ons for the new Blade. That includes a new Chroma Laptop Stand, which includes a Chroma light strip up front and 3-port USB hub in back, and a $300 Razer X Core external graphics enclosure.

But you may not have the cash after spending the $1,900 to $2,900 Razer is asking for their latest system.
