Razer today launched an updated model of its Blade notebook which promises increased power and performance. The notebook weighs 4.3 pound and measures in at 0.7 inch and yet it features Intel Kaby Lake processors and a 4K display. This is the first Razer Blade notebook with an optional 14 inch 4K display and an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor under the hood.
The notebook is capable of retaining its thickness despite the upgraded components due to its unibody aluminum construction. It also features the NVIDIA GTX 1060 graphics processor with 6GB of DDR5 VRAM and 16GB of RAM. The notebook can be configured with SSD storage of up to 1TB. It features Thunderbolt 3 and the Razer Chroma keyboard.
The 4K display is a nice option and even though it drives up the notebook’s price, it’s going to be worth the expense for customers who need a UHD display and don’t really care much about the battery life. For some, that’s a tradeoff worth making.
Razer’s updated Blade notebook with a 14 inch Full HD display is now available for purchase via the company’s website in the United States, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, and France for $1,899. The 4K model is going to cost more and will arrive later this year.
