Razer’s Blade laptops changed the game for gaming PCs a few years ago, packing lots of power into relatively svelte machines. This year, Razer did it again. The Razer Blade has an aluminum enclosure, a full 15.6-inch display with minimal bezels, a precise keyboard, a lovely glass trackpad, and a revamped vapor chamber cooling system.
More noteworthy are its internals: Its base model runs on a hexacore Intel i7 chip, 16 GB of RAM, Nvidia 1060 Max-Q graphics, and a hybrid SSD/HDD storage solution. That configuration, which starts at $1,600, also comes with a 1080p HD display; but if you want to live a little, you can splurge on upgraded internals and a UHD touchscreen display.
If you want a smaller screen (and are OK with weaker performance), the 13-inch Razer Blade Stealth is a good option.
