Razer Blade RZ09-01953E72-R3U1 14-inch

The Razer Blade RZ09-01953E72-R3U1 is a bestselling gaming laptop that has been praised for its multi-touch Full-HD display, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, CNC milled aluminum shell, 512TB M.2 SSD and for its compact size. Its sleek design and Full-HD display makes it popular among both gamers and the multimedia crowd who are looking for a display with a good sRGB score. However, despite the cooling system that Razer has used for this laptop, the thin size still allows for a lot of heat buildup causing the fans to run most of the time.

    The Razer Blade (starting and reviewed at $1,899) just got another power-up. The laptop has made the jump to Kaby Lake, Intel's 7th-generation line of processors, which promise better performance and power efficiency. Pair that with a VR-ready Nvidia Pascal GPU; lovely display; beautiful keyboard and sleek, lightweight chassis; and you've got one of the slimmest gaming powerhouses on the market. Whether it's being used for work or play, the Blade is ready and able to get the job done.

    Just like every other laptop maker, Razer is making the move to Intel’s 7th-gen with a Core i7-7700HQ, 16GB of RAM, and a GTX 1060 with 6GB of GDDR5. All that power doesn’t come cheap, and even our base model review unit with a 256GB PCIe SSD starts at almost $1,900.
