Razer and the term ‘expensive’ go hand-in-hand, but on Black Friday 2021, things have taken a turn in the opposite direction. The company’s Blade 15 Advanced model is available with a mammoth $1,200 price cut, which brings it down to $1,399.99, and for the hardware running inside, you will agree that this is a terrific deal. From the outside, this gaming laptop flaunts one of the best finishes for a gaming laptop, thanks to its CNC aluminum unibody design.
You also get a 15.6-inch 1080p 300Hz IPS LCD screen that is highly responsive and sports a decent color gamut. The 8-core CPU is an Intel Core i7-10875H, while the GPU is the 90W variant of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q. You also get 16GB of 2933MHz RAM running in dual-channel mode, along with a PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD with 512GB storage. Keep in mind that there is just a single M.2 slot available, so you will have to make do with that, although you can upgrade in the future if you want to.
Fortunately, the RAM can be upgraded to 64GB if you have that requirement down the road. The Razer Blade 15 Advanced ships with a vapor chamber to keep the innards nice and cool. If you ever run into a GPU bottleneck, which we doubt will happen for a couple of years, but in the event that it does, simply connect an eGPU into the available Thunderbolt 3 port for increased framerates.
As for the rest of the ports, the Razer Blade 15 Advanced offers an SD card reader, a couple of USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, and an HDMI cable. The battery is a generous 92Wh capacity that lasts for a considerable long time and that is impressive, especially when you have an Intel CPU, which is notorious for being a battery hog. Overall, this is one of the best gaming notebooks available right now, and for $1,399.99, we doubt you will find a better price for this Razer gaming laptop.
