-The build quality and attention to detail on the laptop is exceptional, rivaling the MBP. It's one of the only windows laptops in existence where you can tell a lot of thought and care went into the design and build.
-Fan noise level is decent even under load.
-It's light and thin enough to put in a bag and transport on a regular basis.
-It's got a powerful cpu and gpu capable of driving even graphically demanding games at smooth framerates, and completely demolishing anything system-friendly like Torchlight 2 or League of Legends.
-SSD caching makes many common tasks extremely fast.
-Battery life tends to be a bit short even when not gaming.
-No second audio port for my headset.
-Up/Down directional arrows are dinky. Games often use the d-arrows, so this is suboptimal. It could be solved by a 'directional arrow' setting for the switchblade, but they curiously omitted such a setting. Speaking of which...
-Switchblade UI is fairly immature and lacks vital customization options as of now. Seems like something that will be fixed eventually, but I would prefer a cheaper laptop without the switchblade. Most gamers are going to attach a gaming mouse, and gamers don't really need flashy optimus buttons because they memorize their hotkeys.
The Razer Blade fundamentals are strong--specs, build quality, design, portability. There is nothing else like it on the market. The immature and expensive switchblade ui holds it back from greatness.
I've found out how to customize the switchblade UI buttons, and the functionality I wanted (the ability to attach custom macros and pictures to buttons on a program-specific basis) is there, I just wasn't able to figure it out by messing around.Read more ›
This laptop hits the nail on the head in so many ways:
First off let's look at the competition and their view of a gaming laptop: Huge, plastic, loud, heat blasting, flashing colors, powerful gaming desktop replacements. They get job done but the appeal is more geared towards teens that show it off to friends. It's not something you want in public and not something you really want to lug around with a power brick half the size of the laptop. It doesn't really have a place outside of the gaming world. It is in all senses of the word a toy, and an expensive one at that. In general todays gaming laptops have the bells and whistles but aren't refined products. Enter the Razer Blade a sleek thin .88 profile weighing in at roughly 6 pounds sporting a clean black matte coat over a full aluminum frame with green lighting accents and logo. You wouldn't even know it was a powerful gaming notebook until you launched Battlefield 3 and marveled at how well it played. The Razer Blade is a classy product pulling design cues from the Mac Book Pro, the Optimus Maximus keyboard, and gamer preferences for matte screens and a clean finish.Read more ›
It is able to run all the games I have in Steam smoothly.
It is lighter than most of the laptops that I used.
Fast boot up. I have never used SSD before so I am not sure if this is the fastest SSD. But its definitely much faster than my 3.5" hdd in the desktop.
Gaming-wise, I cannot feel much difference except on max setting. The framerate its lower than my desktop but I expected it.
Heat. It can get quite warm. There's once when I rocked my chair and my thigh hit the bottom of the table top. I could feel the heat from the bottom side!
LED display. The button functions are good to have but can live without. But there's no way you can play FPS with the LED. Simply too slow.
However after this big disappointment, and the reaction of Razer, this will be my last Razer product and i will not recommend getting any of the Razerblade line.
I bought mine in March and we are in July and i already have all these problems :
-Overheating : The laptop is unusable on the laps after 15 minutes of gaming. In the beginning it was okay but after 5 month it's just too hot. I asked the support who told me that i should not use it on my laps (LAPtop ...). They also told me to clean the vents which i did, but the problem is still there. I bought a Cooler Master U3 to cool it, and even with it the keyboard is just really really hot.
-Razer Synapse unstable : I get random crashes of the app, which stops the Touch-pad AND the keyboard for a couple seconds. I can let you imagine when you are playing a multiplayer game and this happens and the best moment ...
-Buzzing power adapter : The power adapter started making a huge buzzing sound (i could hear it with the headphones on). I asked the support to have a replacement which would be ok BUT i am currently traveling for a long time (hence the laptop again) and the support does not replace any part except in the US and I have to first send the power supply in before getting the replacement. Which means i will not be able to use the laptop for some time. The told me to buy a universal replacement. I'm still searching for a 150W laptop power supply that is not either really heavy, or really expensive.
-Dead pixel : 10 minutes ago i just saw a dead pixel appear on the screen. I didn't check with Razer yet, but i can already imagine the answer ...
Other elements are really good, thin and light real gaming laptop.Read more ›
