I'm a bit of a computer junkie, which means I'm constantly buying a "new shiny toy" and this is especially true with computers. Luckily enough I've always found my laptops super-on-sale so after using them a few months I'm able to sell them for profit to purchase a new one. Eventually this meant going from $500 laptops all the way to this bad boy. I've compiled some information regarding this laptop which may assist someone else:

Why did I buy this laptop?
-Incredibly thin and lightweight
-Battery life lasts a VERY long time
-8GB RAM is perfect - Any more seems to be a waste for my needs
-256GB SSD is a great medium between cost and size. Of course a 512GB would be nice, but I have an external for media files anyway.
-HDMI Out - Essential component that many "budget" computers lack (This is definitely not a budget computer)
-Three USB3.0 Ports - I never use more than 2 at a time anyway, but I understand that some people will need more ports. Personally I prefer to use Bluetooth so there are no wires.
-Serves as a good desktop replacement

Below are some questions people often ask me about it:

1)How hot does it get?
-It feels pretty hot when I play certain games like Crysis 3 on max settings; however, I checked the CPU core temperature only to realize it was actually cooler than my previous laptop had been. I believe this may be due to the bezel being made out of metal which can more easily transfer heat than plastic.

2)Can it play games?
-This is always my favorite question because it's a gaming laptop and people love to ask if it can play games. In short the answer is yes. So far I have run into no problems playing games except with radial flora shadows on Battlefield 3 and motion blur in Crysis 3.

The 2013 Razer Blade 14 is a fantastic laptop. It's lightweight, well put together, and packs a TON of power in a small package. They've chosen to provide a premium experience at a premium price. This is truly the laptop I've been waiting for. For the past 10 years I've exclusively purchased Apple MacBooks (or PowerBooks for you old school people) and run Boot Camp to sneak some gaming in. So this is from the perspective of someone who loves a well built aluminum machine.

The battery life easily matches what only ultra low voltage laptops can deliver, except the Razer has an NVIDIA GTX 765m GPU that lets you enable high or max settings in all the current games. I have had run-time vary between 4-7 hours browsing/doing work, or about 2.5-3 hours when gaming. This thing is a beast. I bet you're thinking, "Dang, you really like this thing." And you'd be right, but with some reservations.

Most of the reviews overlook an issue or two. The screen, webcam, and occasionally defective power adapter. Fortunately, their customer service sent me new power adapters until I received one that didn't make loud clicking noises. I'll break everything down below:

Display - This is a tough one. If you see people complaining that this doesn't have a 1080p screen, they are wrong to criticize it. 1600x900 is an excellent choice at 14" and is the appropriate resolution for the GTX 765m graphics card to power. Viewing angles on the other hand are pretty atrocious. It is difficult to find the "right" angle and the screen washes out if you move your head at all.

That said, I understand why Razer chose a TN panel; we can't have slow response times when gaming, but the color gamut and contrast is about a 3 on a scale 1 to 10.

Razer ran a promotion on twitter a month ago, the #RazerB2S (back to school giveaway). I won, so here is my review. . .

Lets start with appearance. The design is very simple, no weird angles or bevels, just a clean smooth design with rounded corners. The finish is a beautiful matte black, so it looks great and doesn't take finger prints. While some have complained about the green Razer logo, I think it looks striking, especially since it glows when the screen is on.

Next up is the physical build quality - which is superb. It feels sturdy, and will not bend/flex (well, the screen will, but anything that thin would). The keys feel solid, and there are two long rubberized feet on the bottom (running most of the length of the front and back). The charging brick and cord are solid (and wonderfully small and light), and the connection feels very good. Many charging ports feel as if they would break under a tiny stress, this one feels like I could dangle the computer from it without damage (note: I'm not going to try it, you probably shouldn't either). Of course that can be a disadvantage if you are apt to trip on the cord, as that could pull the laptop onto the floor. A magnetic solution (similar to a Macbook) may have been an over all more robust solution, but for a standard charging cable, it feels great.

Now, onto the system. Boot time is unbelievable, you can go from cold to fully operational in seconds, which is partially thanks to Razers hardware optimizations, and partially thanks to Windows 8's vastly improved boot times. The OS is pretty much stock Windows 8, the Razer website says that it has no bloatware, which is *true* to some extent. But there are a few programs installed that aren't stock Windows.

- Razer Synapse 2.
