Razer Blade Gaming Ultrabook (14-inch)


Gaming laptops are typically bulky because companies use off-the-shelf parts to cobble them together. Razer Blade gaming notebook breaks that mold for the better with a stealthy MacBook Pro with Retina display-inspired design and powerful computing guts that makes PC gaming on the go actually a sexy idea.

As a purveyor in high-quality PC gear, Razer’s foray into building gaming notebooks with the original 17-inch Blade (now called the Blade Pro) continues with the Blade, a gaming notebook with a 14-inch (1600 x 900) matte display, fourth-gen Intel Core processor, 8GB of DDR3L – 1600MHz RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M with 2GB of GDDR5 RAM paired with Intel HD4600 graphics, 128GB of SSD (customizable in 256GB and 512GB SSD) and Windows 8 64-bit.

The Blade’s specs go on: three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI 1.4a audio and video output, 7.1 Codec support via HDMI, stereo speakers, anti-ghosting keyboard with adjustable backlights, Kensington lock and “Qualcomm Killer NIC” 802.11n Wi-Fi. Battery life is rated at six hours.

Just think about it for a second. All of that is packed inside a computer that weights only 4.135 pounds and is thinner than the diameter of a dime. We’re as baffled as you are on how Razer managed to engineer the Blade.

If a Windows 8 laptop is on your radar, we’d go with this one. The Blade is arguably the best bang-for-buck Ultrabook that isn’t made by Apple.
