2016 Razer Blade Review

Lisa Gade reviews the 2016 Razer Blade, a 14” gaming laptop with the power of a much larger machine. It’s clad in a stealthy aluminum matte black that you could take into a meeting, and weighs just 4.3 lbs. (1.95 kg). For 2016 Razer lowers the price, updates the CPU to 6th gen Intel Skylake, improves cooling, tweaks the Chroma keyboard, uses a more legible keyboard font.

** Read our full written review here: http://www.mobiletechreview.com/notebooks/2016-Razer-Blade.htm

The 0.7” thick laptop is great for pro apps and gaming. It runs Windows 10 on the Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad core, 45 watt CPU with Intel HD 530 graphics switchable with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M 6GB DDR5 graphics via NVIDIA Optimus. It has 16 gigs of DDR4 RAM and your choice of a 256 or 512 gig PCIe NVMe SSD. It has what might be described as the world’s most entertaining notebook keyboard thanks to Chroma backlighting and many available effects with infinite color choice. Excellent Killer Wireless AC WiFi with Bluetooth, a 2MP webcam and a very compact charger are standard. It starts at $1,999.

duby149 says:

I’m at a toss-up between this and The HP Omen I never hold a laptop that cost more then 300 dollars and the last computer desktop I bought was 10 years ago so I was thinking of dropping around 1500 for a gaming laptop but I’m. Otherwise going to play anything on a super high end setting I’m a console gaming erro and want to take advantage of the new Microsoft play anywhere thing so what should I do I was going to go with an i7 and 16ram but I don’t know witch one would be better when it comes to graphic cards

Part of me think’s I remember reading on this Model that the Fans on the bottom Blow out instead of sucking in air making a laptop cooler useless.

Yayap7 says:

I would love to see a review of the 1060 FHD(1080p) model!

ripperx444 says:

Worst customer service on earth. My credit card has a pending charge that they won’t release and the credentials to see your order status that they emailed do not work. Customer service takes 48 hours to reply with some canned bullshit and don’t answer the simple question of …”what is the status of my order”. They told me you can’t access the site because of “heavy web traffic”. Are you fucking kidding me? After 1 full week they replied and said .. oh it’s back ordered. Card is still pending and no lap top in site. I tried cancelling the order and they said “we can try but can’t promose it will go through and returns shipping will be on you”

Spazz says:

most mlg gameplay

ItsMo says:

Hey, what screen recorder did u use the one with frame rates?

RadespotosR says:

Daniel Rodriguez-Delgado says:

just got mine, and the screen looks a bit washed out. anyone could share its ICC profile file product of a formal calibration? I don’t have the device to calibrate the screen. thanks.

Marius Kugland says:

There is a new version of the razer blade with gtx 1060 inside

Huy Vo says:
