Razer Blade (2014)


The newest Razer Blade ultraportable gaming laptop has a lot to love, but a higher price and some performance issues leave us recommending last year's model instead.

Slim, ultraportable design. New Nvidia GeForce GTX 870M graphics card. Upgraded graphics. Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide (IGZO) display with 3,200-by-1,800 resolution and touch capability

Runs very hot. High-resolution display may actually hamper performance. Shorter battery life than previous model reduces portability

Change is hard, and continued innovation is even harder. Case in point: the newest iteration of the Razer Blade ($2,399 as tested). Razer has revamped the Blade gaming laptop, keeping the same ultraportable design of the Editors' Choice Razer Blade...

Level Up


The latest version of Razer's perennial hit -- a sleek, super-powered gaming laptop -- has been updated with a better screen, and it's still the best way to get gaming to go.

Still the best way to get gaming to go. Responsive touchscreen and touchpad. Impressive speaker quality. Upped resolution now supports 3200 x 1800 pixels

Dimmer screen is a letdown, as is the price hike. What, no page up/page down keys? One key’s backlight died during testing

Razer Blade 14 RZ09-0116 ( 2014)


Ah, to be thin and beautiful. In the world of laptops, that feels like the mission across the board, except when it comes to gaming laptops. But what if there were a Retina MacBook Pro of gaming? What if it had a super high-res touch display and...

The new Razer Blade boasts the same beautifully thin design, but adds a sharp 3,200x1,800 touch display and advanced Nvidia graphics.

The battery life is worse than last year's model's. Adding more SSD storage can turn this into a pricey laptop.

Razer’s newest gaming laptop trades ultralong battery life for a fantastic screen and even better graphics. It’s a trade worth making: this is the best Razer gaming laptop, and the best thin gaming PC anywhere.

Razer Blade ( 14-inch, 2013)


In what direction should PC gaming evolve? Tablet, laptop, or hybrid? Experimental or traditional? While PCs, especially Windows 8 ones, are growing out into all sorts of strange directions, it seems that gaming PCs have suddenly gone conservative....

The Razer Blade 14 has a slim design with a powerful combination of fourth-gen quad-core Intel processor and Nvidia graphics; battery life is strong, too.

A lackluster low-resolution, nontouch display doesn't fit the high-end design. The baseline 128GB SSD for $1,800 isn’t sufficient for a gaming PC; you'd better pony up for the 256GB or 512GB model.

Ditching gimmicks and delivering on function, Razer's slim 14-inch gaming laptop marries true power and good battery life in an excellent PC. All it lacks a stellar display.

Razer Blade review (late 2012)


Razer has made a habit of catching us off guard -- breaking the mold as an accessory manufacturer by building laptops, prototype game handhelds and

Fast and powerful ; Excellent build quality ; Slim, beautiful design ; Good battery life (for a gaming laptop)

Audio is still lackluster (though it has improved) ; Switchblade UI has potential, but needs work

Razer's second-generation Blade is what we wanted the original to be: fast, powerful, and impossibly thin for a machine in this class. Unfortunately, it's still almost as expensive as ever.

Razer Blade (2014) review: laptop gaming never looked so good


I feel spoiled. Ever since I started playing games on the new Razer Blade gaming laptop, I've had a tough time enjoying them practically anywhere else. My TV and my desktop PC only display games at 1080p, but the Blade's 14-inch, 3200 x 1800 screen is...

Great design ; Sharp, high-resolution display ; Good touchpad performance

Poor battery life ; No SD card slot ; Some games don't work at full resolution

Gamers only need apply
