Razer Blade Review


Razer Blade review: With both Intel's Haswell and Nvidia's new 700M-series components shrinking and sipping less power, the super-portable, 14-inch, gaming laptop revolution is about to begin. Leading the charge is Razer with its ultra-sleek new Razer...

Razer Blade Review


The Blade packs a remarkable amount of power into a package as svelte as they come.

Solid quality and design ; Good keyboard and touchpad ; Great gaming performance

Not user upgradeable ; Limited port selection ; Expensive

The Blade packs a remarkable amount of power into a package as svelte as they come. This 0.66″ thin, 4.1 pound notebook can play modern games at higher settings. Other things we like about the Blade include the superb build quality, elegant design,...

Razer Blade Review


When new companies enter the PC business they usually do so on the strength of a large existing consumer electronics empire. Razer, however, never got that memo. The company moved boldly forward over the last two years with the original Blade, an...

Excellent design and quality ; Pleasant keyboard and large touchpad ; Incredibly slim given the hardware ; Good battery life ; Fast, well-rounded performance

Low-quality display saps games of vibrancy ; Expensive

Razer’s Blade offers the performance gamers need with portability they’d never expect.

Razer Blade review: gaming and only gaming


Razer's updated Blade offers a good gaming performance and a cool, programmable set of visual keys for gamers, but its quirky nature makes it less useful for other tasks.

Razer Blade review: Razer Blade


You can't accuse Razer of playing it safe. The first laptop from the longtime PC gaming accessories maker, the $2,800 Blade is an eye-catching, innovative, expensive gaming PC that looks the part thanks to its thin design, gorgeous 17-inch screen, and...

The Razer Blade has a thin, sleek design, an excellent 17-inch display, fast bootup times, and unique touch-pad UI with a lot of potential for gamers.

The innovative Switchblade UI LED buttons are hard to customize, and the Blade has underpowered graphics for its price.

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...

Razer Blade


Typically, when a company wants to meet, you expect more of the same -- not a change in strategy, nor a decision to enter an entirely new product category. So when Razer wanted to meet us one bright, oddly cold San Franciscan morning last August, we...

Outstanding fit and finish ; Customizable LCD keys ; Absolutely gorgeous

Subpar audio ; Finicky hinge ; Portability infringes on performance

Razer's first gaming laptop is impressive, though marred by minor, yet head-scratching flaws. Barring those (and its sky-high price), Razer has a winner on its hands.

Razer Blade review (14-inch)


Razer was a company that simply built gaming peripherals — mice, keyboards, headphones, and mousepads. That changed last year. In March 2012, it released the Razer Blade, proclaiming it had built the “world's first true gaming laptop.” The original...

Thin, light, and strong ; Games like a champ ; 6+ hour battery life

Sub-par screen ; Burning hot while gaming ; Touchpad can be finnicky

Razer Blade


The Razer comes with a one-year warranty, with a two-year option available at an additional cost. Value Not cheap, but it's worth it. The world's first gaming Ultrabook, the Razer Blade makes a lot of financial sense. It can realistically do...

Ultrabook-thin and light, Powerful gaming performance, Strong battery life

Corner-cutting display, Runs hot, No wired Ethernet port

Razer Blade


Size and mobility make the Razer Blade the epitome of what a gaming laptop should be. The graphics card and high-definition display pair well to give you real and intense-looking gaming environments. Unfortunately, the lack of an optical drive and the...

This laptop takes gaming to the next level by offering a gaming mode that turns off your Windows key by default. This way you won't leave any heated battles by accident

The Razer Blade doesn't include an optical drive

Razer still has some work to do before this could be a top-tier gaming laptop, such as adding an optical drive and increasing the hard drive space.

Razer Blade review


Replacing the traditional trackpad with a touchscreen and 10 customizable OLED keys, the Razer Blade is a beautiful laptop that caters to your every gaming need

Gaming power and portability ; Generally understated design ; Great battery life

Viewing angle and contrast ; Lack of connectivity ; Uncomfortably hot for gaming

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.
