12 Reasons For

Good Brand

Gaming laptops manufactured by Razer have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all laptops (not just gaming laptops) and found that Razer also has good reviews across its entire range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This laptop supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many laptops that were released more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

Has a Front Camera

Like most of the other portable PCs that are a similar age to the Blade, the Razer Blade has a front camera.

Chart Edit

Intel Core I7 Processor Family

This notebook PC has an Intel Core i7-4xxx processor family, which is the most frequently found processor family on gaming laptops that came out more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed

This notebook PC supports a 1333|1600MHz processor memory clock speed, which is typical of many portable PCs of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The Razer Blade has a better storage medium than most gaming laptops that were launched more than a year ago. This notebook PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most gaming laptops that have been available for a comparable time to it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

This portable PC's storage medium (SSD) is actually the best storage medium across all portable PCs that came out more than a year ago.

Across comparable types of portable PC the worst storage medium is HDD.

We compared all the other laptops that have an SSD storage media to this notebook PC and we think the Razer Blade which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Very Light

Notebook PCs of this spec and age have weights of between 1.2kg and 4.8kg, and the average weight is 3kg. At only 2 kilograms, the Razer Blade is fairly light compared to most of the other gaming laptops that are a comparable age to the Blade.

Alternative portable PCs with a heavier weight that you might want to look at include the Alienware 13 (2kg).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Has a Touch Sensitive Screen

The Razer Blade has a touch sensitive screen, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than a year do not have a touch sensitive screen.

Chart Edit

802.11n WiFi Standard

The Razer Blade has an 802.11n WiFi standard which is better than the 802.11a WiFi standard found on most notebook PCs that were launched more than a year ago. This notebook PC also have 802.11ac and 802.11b and 802.11g WiFi standards.

This notebook PC's Wi-Fi standard (802.11n) is in fact the best Wi-Fi standard amongst all laptops of this age and type.

An 802.11a WiFi standard is the worst Wi-Fi standard across comparable types of notebook PC.

Read more Less Chart Edit

4 Bluetooth Version

This laptop supports a 4 Bluetooth version, which is typical of many gaming laptops that have been around for more than a year.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

Notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than a year have widths of between 320mm and 460mm, and the average width is 400mm. At only 345 millimeters, the Razer Blade is quite narrow compared to most of the other gaming laptops that were launched around the same time as the Blade.

Chart Edit

GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type

This laptop has a GDDR5 discrete graphics memory type, which is the most frequently found discrete graphics memory type on portable PCs of this age and type.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard

Most laptops of this age and type do not have a full-size keyboard. The Razer Blade is no exception to this as it too does not have a full-size keyboard.

We compared this portable PC to all the other portable PCs with a full-size keyboard and we think the G750JH, or the GL771JW both from Asus which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The total storage capacity of portable PCs of this spec and age range from 120GB to 2.1TB, and the average total storage capacity is 990GB. The Razer Blade has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 256 gigabytes) amongst gaming laptops of this age.

The Razer Blade has a fairly small screen size (only 14 inches) compared to most of the other similar spec notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Blade.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

With a maximum internal memory of only 16 gigabytes, the Razer Blade has a quite small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable type and age to the Blade. The maximum internal memory of comparable spec notebook PCs that were released one year ago range from 16GB to 32GB.
