Razer is a household name in the PC gaming world. This iconic brand, with which few others compete, has been bringing some of the best high-end gaming laptops to the market for years. These beefy machines can be expensive, but computers usually get you what you pay for. Offers for Razer laptops can also be quite rare. So if you're in the market for a new gaming PC, this action could seduce you: for a limited time, if you buy a Razer Blade 15 or Razer Blade Pro 17 gaming laptop, you'll get a Razer Basic Messenger Bag ( a value of $ 49). Read on to learn more about these great laptops.
Razor blade 15
Although there are many 13- and 14-inch ultrabooks today, the screen size sweet spot still seems to be 15.6 inches for most gaming laptops. The Razer Blade 15 is an example of that, and that's a good thing: The newer models for 2019 include more recent Intel Core CPUs and the latest graphics cards from the Nvidia GeForce RTX 20 series (exactly what you want, if you want to pay so much for a gaming laptop) and deliver a lot of power to run the latest titles with high settings.
The Blade 15 also offers a very robust build quality and a slim, streamlined design that does not distinguish everyone in the room with a "gaming laptop". The keyboard and touchpad are also good, although of course you want to connect a good gaming mouse to play.
Razer Blade Pro 17
Large laptops may seem like dinosaurs in the age of feather-light 2-in-1 and 13-inch ultrabooks, but these dinosaurs are far from extinct. A 17-inch laptop like the Razer Blade Pro 17 was designed specifically for gaming thanks to its vibrant 17.3-inch 1080p or 4K displays and Nvidia GeForce RTX 20 series GPUs (although the larger displays give you extra space, of course on the screen for work and work also offer multitasking). Excellent thermals and good built-in speakers also improve your gaming experience and you have numerous connections for peripheral devices and for connecting the laptop to an external display.
You'll sacrifice some lightness and portability for this enlarged display, of course, but that's the compromise you get for the extra screen area. Even so, the Razer Blade Pro 17 still has a very nice, understated aesthetic that resembles that of its smaller siblings, without the glaring angles and boxy designs you'll find on most gaming laptops. It still fits in most regular sized backpacks and of course the Razer Messenger Bag you get when you buy it.
