Razer Blade review (14-inch, 2013): smaller, faster, lighter

 

Razer's 14-inch Blade is its most powerful laptop to date, not to mention its most affordable. Strong internals, an attractive build and long battery life make it a solid option for gamers and non-gamers alike.

Fast and powerful ; Excellent trackpad ; Stellar battery life (for a gaming machine) ; Slim, compact and thoroughly attractive

Middling screen and audio quality ; More expensive (and less powerful) than other machines

Razer's 14-inch Blade is almost everything we wanted out of the company's first gaming laptop: a smaller, less-expensive machine with longer battery life, more power and a shockingly attractive chassis. These elements lift the machine's stature,...

Razer Blade 14 review: Superthin gaming powerhouse

 

The 14-inch Razer Blade is a more conservative laptop than the previous model, but it packs a great combination of performance and battery life.

The ; 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.

Review: Razer Blade 14-Inch

 

Razer gives us this pint-sized powerhouse -- a near-ultrabook gaming PC in a case that measures just 20mm thick.

Record-setting performance on all fronts — including battery life. Impressive portability, particularly for a gaming rig. Looks good, especially if you like snake symbology

A bit slow to boot. Pricey. No touchscreen. Still no SD card reader

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...

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

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

Third time's the charm

Razer Blade (2013)

 

The oh-so-portable 14-inch Razer Blade (2013) ultraportable laptop has got you covered when you want to take your gaming on the road.

Gaming on the go. Top performance thanks to 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX graphics. More than 6 hours of battery life.

No Ethernet or optical drive.

Conclusion From its lightweight, portable design to its significantly improved performance, better graphics, and much longer battery life, it's clear that the Razer Blade (2013) is the laptop to buy if you want PC gaming on the go. Compared to the bulk...

Razer Blade 14 review

 

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....

Razer Blade ( 14-inch, 2013)

 

The Razer Blade 14, Razer's newest laptop, is a throwback, too: there's no touch screen. There's no Switchblade second-screen clickpad. There's no convertible tablet mode. This is a laptop. At least it's a very thin, very sleek gaming laptop.

Review Razer Blade 14 Notebook

 

A wolf in sheep's clothing. Gaming notebooks do not necessarily have to be big, bulky and heavy. Razer shows that you can also put a lot of performance into a thin case. ...

Almost perfect combination of performance and mobility; High build quality; Good battery runtimes; Low weight; Thin chassis

Only available in the US and Canada; Very bad display; Expensive

Except for the Gigabyte P34G, there is no real competition in terms of similar size with comparable performance. Both the Alienware 14 and the One K33-3E offer similar performance and the same display size, but they are also much heavier.

Razer Blade Review

 

This 14-inch gaming notebook packs desktop power into an 0.66-inch thin aluminum chassis. Read our full review to see why the Razer Blade is a worthwhile contender.

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,...
