If you want the best all-round Razer laptop, then the Razer Blade 15 should be your first choice. It’s sleek and sophisticated looking, but underneath contains both budget-friendly specs or an insane amount of horsepower.

Based on the hardware you want — up to an NVIDIA RTX 2080 Super Max-Q GPU, 10th Gen Intel Core i7-10875 eight-core CPU, and 16GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM — you’ll get access to different display options, including up to 4K OLED with 100% DCI-P3 color reproduction, 60Hz refresh rate, and HDR400 certification. If you want to stick with FHD, you go with up to a 300Hz refresh rate 100% sRGB color reproduction.

The Precision touchpad is huge for times when you’re not using an external gaming mouse, while other connectivity includes Thunderbolt 3, HDMI 2.0, and Ethernet.

If you’re a creator or a professional, there is also the Blade 15 Studio Edition, which is very expensive, but also very powerful. With NVIDIA’s monstrous workstation GPU, the Quadro RTX 5000 inside, and NVIDIA-backed optimizations to a raft of software, this is a laptop that can chew through even the most demanding tasks.

Pros:

  • 4K OLED display is stunning
  • Outstanding audio
  • Excellent gaming performance
  • Plenty of ports
  • Premium build quality

Cons:

  • Keyboard has short travel
  • Can get pricey

Razer has been putting out large, hugely powerful laptops for several years and continues to make its range-topping Razer Blade Pro better and better. There are several options to choose from, but the latest and greatest is really where it’s at. Whether you’re a professional, a creator, a gamer, or all three, the Blade Pro is a beastly 17-inch laptop.

You’re now getting a 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor paired with an NVIDIA RTX 2070 or 2080 Super Max-Q GPU and either a 1080p 300Hz display or a stunning 4K 120Hz panel with touch.

Everything else is trademark Blade Pro. Sleek, stylish exterior, fast storage, plenty of RAM, an excellent keyboard, and the latest ports, including USB 3.2 and Thunderbolt 3. There are less expensive options that include 9th Gen Intel processors and less powerful GPUs, but the latest top-spec is truly the ultimate laptop.

Big, expensive, but an ultimate laptop

Razer’s 17-inch Blade packs an insane amount of hardware in its body, including a 4K 120Hz display and an RTX 2080 Super Max-Q GPU.

The Razer Blade Stealth is more ultrabook than gaming laptop in its form factor. Still, inside, it’s now got enough horsepower to also do some proper PC gaming while retaining the ability to hook up an even more powerful GPU over Thunderbolt 3.

The Blade Stealth is a sleek 13-inch notebook, but inside Razer has somehow managed to cram both a 25W 10th Gen Intel Core i7 processor and an NVIDIA GTX 1650 Ti dedicated GPU with 4GB of VRAM. Not only this but 16GB of RAM and a gamer-friendly 120Hz display.

You won’t be pushing maximum frames in every game, sure, but what Razer has put together here is frankly staggering. It’s a watershed moment for 13-inch laptops, in much the same way the first Razer Blade changed the landscape of gaming laptops all those years ago.

Reasons to buy

  • Compact Ultrabook
  • Thin and light
  • Dedicated graphics
  • 120Hz display
  • 10th Gen Intel processors

Reasons not to buy

  • Expensive compared to base model Blade 15
  • Not the largest battery

Best Ultrabook

Razer Blade Stealth 13 (2020)

The new Razer Blade Stealth 13 (2020) brings much more power to the table with Intel’s 10th Gen CPUs and GeForce GTX 1650 Ti graphics and, for the first time, a 120Hz display.

The bottom line

The best Razer laptop for most people will undoubtedly be the Blade 15. It’s in the middle of the range size wize, but also has the broadest appeal.

If you’re looking to get as much value from your purchase as possible, then the base model is a great buy, with an attractive price, and still powerful enough to handle today’s gaming. But equally, if you’re looking for something super-powerful, there’s an option for you, too.

The ultra-impressive Blade 15 Studio Edition deserves a shout out, too, which thanks to a partnership with NVIDIA, and several software makers such as Adobe, can crunch through the most demanding processes without breaking a sweat.
