  • Conclusion: But if you seek genuine gaming power in a genuinely lap-compatible package with MacBook-like styling, fit, and finish, the Razer is a premium choice that's hard to pass up.
  • Pros: Snappy gaming performance in a remarkably thin and light package, Long battery life, Nice sound, screen, and keyboard
  • Cons: No optical drive, Ethernet, or SD card slot, 1,600x900 instead of 1,920x1,080 resolution

Razer Blade Review

maximum pc
2 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Razer Blade review: With both Intel ’s Haswell and Nvidia ’s new 700M-series components shrinking and sipping less power, the super-portable, 14-inch, gaming laptop revolution is about to begin. Leading the charge is Razer with its ultra-sleek new Razer Blade gaming notebook, which is a smaller take on the 17-inch version (since rebranded as Razer Blade Pro ) we reviewed last year.
  • Pros: Sexy, super thin and portable, fantastic performance for the size
  • Cons: TN monitor, chintzy-feeling keyboard/trackpad buttons, no HDD

Razer Blade 14 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
2 July 2013
  • Summary: Razer has churned out a sexy and powerful gaming laptop with an amazingly slim profile. The Blade 14's high-end specs allow it to trade shots with heavyweights without breaking a sweat. We also love the customizable, backlit keyboard and more than 8 hours of battery life (when you're not gaming). We just wish this rig kept its cool better during gaming and that it came with a 1080p display.

Razer Blade 14-Inch Gaming Notebook Review

AnandTech
2 July 2013
  • Conclusion: I went into reviewing the Razer Blade 14-inch skeptical, and I came out of it largely a believer. Razer has done a million things right with this notebook design, and I actually have a very hard time understanding why a user would spend up for the 17-inch Razer Blade Pro. This 14-inch unit has almost everything you want and very little you don't, and it is the definitive gaming ultrabook.

Razer Blade

CNET
19 February 2013
  • Summary: Razer's first laptop, the Razer Blade, is a thin gaming computer with some futuristic design touches, but a high price means you're paying for design -- and for the second-screen signature Switchblade UI interface that doesn't do as much as we hoped it would...yet.
  • Pros: The Razer Blade has a thin, sleek design, an excellent 17-inch display, fast bootup times, and unique touch-pad UI with a lot of potential for gamers.
  • Cons: The innovative Switchblade UI LED buttons are hard to customize, and the Blade has underpowered graphics for its price.

  • Summary: Size and mobility make the Razer Blade and the Razer Blade Pro the epitome of what affordable gaming laptops should be. The graphics card and high-definition display pair well to give you real and intense-looking gaming environments. Unfortunately, the lack of an optical drive and the limited amount of hard disk space make it difficult for us to consider these the best gaming laptops.
  • Pros: The unique multifunctional track pad screen opens you up to a new world of navigation and gaming control.
  • Cons: Customization is not an option for the Blade and Blade Pro, which heavily limits features and personalization.
