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, good keyboard and touchpad and plenty of battery life.

We found a few items not to like; the display has a good 1600×900 resolution but isn’t all that colorful; the chassis heats up quite a bit while gaming; it’s expensive and limited to 8GB of RAM.

All told our impressions of the Razer Blade are overwhelmingly positive and we’re happy to recommend it.


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


  • Not user upgradeable
  • Limited port selection
  • Expensive
