As one of the world’s leading gamer brands, Razer doesn’t need to do much to gain the support of its fans, so lopping a fifth off the price of its Blade 15 gaming laptop will certainly do it. It’s only available today, though, so those who are keen should move quickly.
The Blade 15 is described by Razer as the world’s smallest gaming laptop, but what it lacks in size it certainly makes up for in performance. What’s more, the current starting price of $1,300 on Amazon sees a considerable $300 taken off what it usually goes for.
Despite measuring just 0.78 x 9.25 x 13.98 inches, the Blade 15 base model packs in a six-core Intel Core i7 processor, 16 GB of RAM, and GeForce RTX 2070 MQ graphics. A 144Hz 15. 6-inch Full HD (FHD) display promises excellent visuals, as well as support for high-frame-rate gaming. Buyers can choose between 256 GB or 512 GB of storage, although that does up the price a touch.
In fact, users can choose between a variety of higher-specced configurations on which there are also savings to be made. An RTX 2060 graphics version with FHD at up to 144Hz is available also at a fifth off for $1,450 and there are two options with RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics. An FHD / 144Hz configuration for that is reduced by 10 percent to $1,800, while a 4K OLED / 60Hz configuration has a 9-percent reduction to $2,100.
