Razer Blade

Sharp design at a dull price GAMING LAPTOPS tend to push garish, over - the-top designs these days; the second - generation Razer Blade throws these cliched conventions out the window. The result is a 16.8x10.9x.88-inch minimalist laptop that resembles a large matte-black MacBook Pro. This doesn't mean the Blade looks plain, however. Its alluring green LEDs coupled with its slick LCD trackpad give this Blade a killer edge. Featuring a 17.3-inch screen, the laptop is massive. But, while the Blade certainly sports a large footprint, it's sexy-slim at .88 inches. While the laptop doesn't feel light, with a carry weight of seven pounds, seven ounces, it's much lighter than most competitors in its class. Heck, our 15-inch MSI GT60 zero-point (reviewed last month) was noticeably heavier at 10 pounds. The brain behind the beauty is Intel's 2.2GHz Core i7-3632QM quad-core CPU, which clocks up to 3.2GHz with Turbo Boost. Discrete graphics come courtesy of Nvidia's GeForce GTX 660M GPU with 2GB of GDDR5 video memory. Unlike the MSI's GTX 670, which uses the older 40nm Fermi architecture, the Blade's GeForce is based on the 28nm Kepler chipset. Regardless of the new architecture, the Blade's 660 couldn't match MSI's ¿70 GPU, losing to the latter by double-digit percentages in both our STALKER: Call of Pripyat and 3DMark 11 benchmarks.
