Razer Blade (2018) review

 

The Razer Blade (2018) is the world's smallest 15-inch gaming laptop in 2019 so far. But, is it worth the money? Read our Razer Blade review to find out.

Beautiful new design Excellent screen Fantastic performance

Heats up under pressure Poor battery life Surprisingly dense No Windows Hello

The 2018 Razer Blade is an incredibly slick and good-feeling laptop, but it’s held back by some flaws that are tough to ignore. Razer is clearly at the top of its game with the latest Blade, but the rest of the gaming laptop world is clearly catching up.

Razer Blade Stealth review

 

A higher class of Ultrabook

Larger, brighter display ; Subtler aesthetics on the gunmetal version ; Excellent Kaby Lake Refresh performance

Shorter and shorter battery life ; No 4K display option in sight

The Razer Blade Stealth isn’t just THE Ultrabook for gamers, it’s one of the best Ultrabooks for everyone. Though it doesn’t offer the best battery life, its vibrant display, great performance and excellent value make it one of our favorite laptops of...

Razer Blade Stealth 13 (late 2018) review: Raw power but unfulfilled potential

 

A good fit for the boardroom, but disappointing battery life and tawdry ports leave it lacking

Killer performance; Vibrant display; Impressive design

Terrible battery life; Awkwardly-placed keys; Wobbly ports

Gorgeously designed and packed full of power, the Razer Blade Stealth has the makings of an elite device that can compete with the likes of the MacBook Pro. This 13.3in ultraportable is, however, let down by a handful of problems that blacken its...

Razer Blade 15 (2018) review

 

The Razer Blade is the best of both worlds.

Beautiful, thin design ; Excellent gaming performance ; Impressive battery life ; Robust build quality ; High refresh rate display

Questionable keyboard layout ; Runs hot

The Razer Blade is a work-hard, game-hard laptop. In a work setting, it blends in with sleek laptops like MacBook Pro or Surface Book 2. In a gaming setting, it’s every bit as capable as a traditional gaming laptop. You’ll see better battery life out...

Razer Blade Stealth (2018) review

 

The Blade Stealth is a fine laptop on its own, but a powerhouse with Razer's Core external GPU.

Thin, robust design ; Solid performance ; Responsive keyboard and touchpad ; Razer Core compatibility

Large screen bezels ; Modest specifications without Razer Core

The Razer Blade Stealth does a lot of things right, but without the Razer Core, it feels a bit lost. It’s slightly behind other systems in its price range, and the average laptop buyer won’t be attracted to the Razer brand. It feels designed...

Razer Blade Stealth (2018) review: Near-perfection has its price

 

The Razer Blade Stealth is a great laptop made even greater in this generation with a quad-core CPU. But compared to similar laptop competitors, there's one thing it still needs.

Lightweight, durable, and attractive ; More than powerful enough for everyday tasks ; Battery life slightly better than last time

Price-to-performance ratio isn't as good as the competition, or even the previous Blade Stealth ; USB-C charging cable feels like it could snap in half ; Battery life still mediocre compared to other ultrabooks

It’s a great machine, though. Peerless, when it comes to the actual design itself. It’s a real pleasure to use the Blade Stealth, be it on a plane or just at home lounging on the couch. Durable enough to feel rugged and portable, but lightweight enough...

Razer Blade (2018)

 

The 2018 Razer Blade redefines the category it inspired: the super-slim, powerful gaming laptop. The best thin design in the business now packs a roomier 15.6-inch display and cutting-edge components.

Best-in-class overall performance. Slick, thin design, now with a larger (15.6-inch) screen. Superior high-refresh display. Per-key RGB backlighting. Solid battery life.

A bit pricey for the parts. Design of speaker grilles mars sleek build.

Bottom Line: The 2018 Razer Blade redefines the category it inspired: the super-slim, powerful gaming laptop. The best thin design in the business now packs a roomier 15.6-inch display and cutting-edge components.

Razer Blade review: Riding the knife edge between gaming and work

 

The newly upgraded Razer Blade is the perfect laptop for undercover gaming.

Great overall redesign, with a larger screen, smaller bezels and bigger touchpad. Includes either an Nvidia 1060 or 1070 GPU, which is enough for almost any laptop gamer. 144Hz display option. Cool keyboard lights, if that's your bag.

Painfully expensive considering Nvidia 1060 laptops can be found for under $1,000. The 4K touchscreen option isn't available yet.

The redesigned Razer Blade moves the bar on slim gaming laptops, with better hardware and a bigger screen, but you'll need a bigger budget for it, too.

Razer Blade Stealth (13.3

 

The refreshed Razer Blade Stealth is mostly the same as the previous model of this ultraportable laptop that we love, but now delivers a fresher, faster processor for $100 more.

Gorgeous 13.3-inch QHD+ touch display. Speedy new Core i7 processor. Slick design and solid construction. USB-C with Thunderbolt 3. Customizable LED keyboard. Runs quietly.

Battery life not as long as some competitors'. Can't charge and use USB-C port at the same time.

Bottom Line: The refreshed Razer Blade Stealth is mostly the same as the previous model of this ultraportable laptop that we love, but now delivers a fresher, faster processor for $100 more.

Razer Blade Stealth (Late 2017)

 

The gorgeous, well-built, all-metal Razer Blade Stealth, now with a slightly larger and still-brilliant screen, is one of the best premium ultraportable laptops, especially for less than $1,500.
