The Razer Blade has always had a high spot among gaming laptop list. However, the company is bringing it to a whole new stage with its current iteration. Trust me, you’ve never seen a Razer Blade like this before, with its well-rounded range of features and internal components. Also, improving the 2018 edition, the Razer Blade 2019 carries some changes here. Of all these changes, the most prominent of these changes is the latest Nvidia Turing graphics. This gives this model the sheer strength that its Pascal predecessors never possessed. Additionally, the battery life as well as the long-awaited facial infrared camera has improved significantly.

- Unicode aluminium shell, the Razer Blade inherits the exact same angular shape as its predecessor. This time around, however, it’s furnished with a more stripped-down RGB light – down to the keyboard and the Razer logo on the lid.
- The keyboard feels just as easy and rewarding to use and continues to provide good enough input for an island-style keyboard.
- We’re pleased to see Razer finally add Windows Hello facial recognition to its Blade webcam collection. Though it’s not the fastest or most elegant implementation of the feature, it’s also flashing a garish red light on our faces while scanning.
- Excellent gaming performance
- Huge battery life improvement
- The downside is that the problem of the Razer Blade keyboard layout has not been resolved by previous generations – with the ‘up’ arrow key set between ‘Shift’ and ‘? ‘The buttons
- Awfully expensive
- Somewhat goofy keyboard layout
The Razer Blade might be priced massively, but Razer has added even more value to its high-powered gaming laptop than ever before. If you end up investing the money you need, you’ll be comforted by taking home the whole set of gaming laptops.
