​​Razer Blade review (2014): a 'no-compromise' premium gaming laptop

 

The newest Razer Blade is the company's best laptop yet, but it trades epic battery life for an exceptional display.

Fast and powerful ; Great 3,200 x 1,800 display ; Slim, compact and attractive

Expensive ; Screen resolution can undercut performance ; Shorter battery life than the 2013 model

Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan describes the 2014 Razer Blade as a "no-compromise" gaming laptop, and that's almost accurate. Between the machine's screaming graphics performance, its thin chassis and that new QHD+ touchscreen, I was hard-pressed to find a...

Razer’s Blade 15 Advanced review: runs fast, runs hot

 

Razer's 2020 Blade 15 Advanced has better battery life and an improved keyboard, but it can get toasty

Refined keyboard layout ; Improved battery life ; Customizable RAM and SSD ; Synapse software is easy to use

It gets noticeably hot ; Poor webcam quality

But at least for now, Razer still makes the best thin-profile gaming laptop.

Razer Blade (2014)

 

The newest Razer Blade ultraportable gaming laptop has a lot to love, but we had very high hopes and came away a bit disappointed.

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.

Conclusion 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...

Review: Razer Blade (2014)

 

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...

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 (2014) review

 

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.

The 2014 Razer Blade Review

 

Razer moved from being a peripheral maker to a system builder in 2012, with the original Razer Blade . Since then, they have evolved and tweaked their gaming laptop systems several times. While the original Blade was a 17 inch gaming laptop, later on a...

The price has crept up a bit over last year though, with the base cost now at $2200 USD. But that is only with 128GB of storage, which really isn't sufficient , so most users will have to jump up to the
