Every gaming laptop manufacturer is introducing refreshed models outfitted with a new-and-improved Intel Core i7-8750H processor, but Razer is hoping to go one better with a completely revamped Blade.

Introduced as a successor to the popular 14in model, the new laptop touts a 15.6in display with hardly any detriment to overall size or weight, making it the smallest gaming laptop in its class. The chassis has also been updated with a more modern look, there’s a GTX 1070 Max-Q GPU in the offing, and a 144Hz display promises to maximise gaming potential. The specification sheet is an enthusiast’s dream, so without further ado, let’s take a closer look at the all-new Razer Blade 15.  Read the full review here.

Razer has given its mid-sized Blade gaming laptop a major facelift for 2018. Out goes the curvy chassis and thick display bezels, and in comes a sleek, angular chassis with a 15.6in edge-to-edge panel touting a 144Hz refresh rate.

The end result is one of the most stylish gaming laptops around, and there’s plenty of high-end hardware crammed inside the tough 16.8mm aluminium chassis. The highlights include a hexa-core Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB of memory, fast SSD storage and up to GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q graphics.

Yet while Blade 15 is an improvement in many areas, some of the old issues linger. Despite the implementation of vapour chamber cooling technology, the laptop struggles to deal with heat build-up, resulting in an uncomfortably hot chassis, noticeable CPU throttling, and bothersome fan noise.

Bottom line: performance purists who wish to extract every last ounce should look elsewhere, but if you’re looking for a potent PC that’s as pretty as it is powerful, Blade 15 is the smallest and sleekest gaming laptop in its class.
