Hardware and Design
The Razer Blade gaming laptop can already be distinguished as a premium one even from a slight first look. The beautiful midnight black aluminium matte finish makes it looks stunning. Judging by its looks, it somehow reminds me of a MacBook Pro. Well, that’s what I first notice. Apparently, I don’t want to be hunted by the Apple kiddos as well by not crediting their lovely MacBook in this comparison.
As a gaming laptop, the Razor Blade is surprisingly lightweight at only 6.4 lbs. It can be carried around all day wherever you go without much burden of that heavy thing.
The screen display of the Razer Blade is not the best I have seen. I can see some glitters at times and it didn’t have many viewing angle options when exposed to direct sunlight. Although dubbed as full HD display, this is by far one of the high quality screens currently available.
The Blade’s anti-ghosting keyboard takes time to get accustomed to. I mean, this is really a brilliant idea to give the user an option to remap his keyboard functions but before you can catch up, you have to learn it first. You don’t want to get beaten by your friends in gaming that easy don’t you?
My only problem with the anti-ghosting keyboard is actually the space bar. It is very short as compared to what other laptops have so I had a bad time adjusting to it. If it wasn’t for the space bar, the keyboard should have been great.
Razer Blade Price
Razer products always sits on average price, actually, it depends on the demand and popularity. The Razer Blade price sits on $2,799.99 if you buy it in the Razer Store . For now, they are only shipping within the USA, but there’s plenty of other stores that sells it.
Overall, I’m very satisfied with the Razer Blade gaming laptop. It’s not the greatest of them all but it sure has those little extras that make things interesting. Plus, it has the fire power to run most of my favourite games. As for my final words, all I can say is I’m really lucky to do a Razer Blade review and experience this wonderful gaming laptop.
