Engadget Review

Razer’s 14-inch Blade is its most powerful laptop to date, not to mention its most affordable. Strong internals, an attractive build and long battery life make it a solid option for gamers and non-gamers alike.

Pros
  • Fast and powerful
  • Excellent trackpad
  • Stellar battery life (for a gaming machine)
  • Slim, compact and thoroughly attractive
Cons
  • Middling screen and audio quality
  • More expensive (and less powerful) than other machines
