Save $400 on one of the best premium gaming laptops. Recommended in our latest gaming laptop guide, Razer’s Blade 15 configuration combines cutting-edge performance with fast graphics, all housed in a sleek, sturdy aluminum chassis. Normally $3,000, both Amazon and Razer offer recommended units for $2,600, or 13% off list price. That’s the cheapest price we’ve seen so far in this configuration and it’s still not a cheap laptop but it’s a laptop that can play the best games and I think you get what you pay for .
The Quad HD display is responsive with a 240Hz refresh rate, and NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3070 Ti graphics card is plenty fast. Powered by the 12th Gen Intel i7-12800H processor, a powerful performance-focused chip that offers 16 GB of dual-channel slotted (upgradeable) memory. Storage is handled by a 1TB SSD, with an open M.2 slot if you want to add more. It comes with Windows 11 Home on the unit and has one of the best glass touchpads we’ve tried on a Windows laptop. Larger keys make the Blade 15 easier to use for both gaming and general productivity. Overall, this model of the Blade 15 is not only great for gaming, but it’s also a worthy desktop replacement.
Other configurations of Intel 12th Generation Blade 15 are available now. Razer announced the option to pair the Blade with his first 240Hz OLED laptop screen earlier last year. If you want that display (which has the same RTX 3070 Ti graphics and a slightly faster Intel i9 processor) it’s on sale for $400 off both Amazon and Razer, bringing the price to his $2,900 .
The full-featured unit we tried in our hands-on review was also $400 off on Razer’s site, dropping the $3,700 monster down to $3,300. It has a Quad HD 240Hz display.
None of these are budget options, but if you’re looking for a big, luxurious laptop that can hold its own while playing the latest game titles, now might be a good time to pick up a Blade 15. Hmm. $400 in your pocket.
