With the new 14-inch Razer Blade, the company has created a gaming machine the likes of which we may not have seen for at least another couple of years otherwise. This sort of fearless innovation is exactly what the PC gaming hardware industry needs to take them beyond the big scary boxes and into the hearts and homes of gamers everywhere.

Razer Blade: Gaming notebook in an ultrabook disguise If you look at the Razer Blade strictly as a high-end notebook and compare it to similarly priced devices from other manufacturers, it is just a common gaming device with average performance. But the...

The 14" Razer Blade is a poorly executed great idea. It's thinner and lighter than the competing gaming laptops and has just as good processing and gaming capabilities as the best of them. Unfortunately, it overheats like crazy and has ridiculously...

And when those machines get upgraded with the latest Intel Haswell processors and discrete graphics, perhaps they’ll perform similarly anyhow. Still, as of today, there’s nothing that can game, then get up and go, quite like the 14-inch Blade.

As it stands, the 14-inch Blade still has a lot going for it and if you want the thinnest, sleekest gaming notebook out there, this is your one stop shop. I just can't understand how a company would get this close to nailing a design, only to blow it to save a few bucks.

This issue is compounded further by the fact that its internals ride the edge of modern gaming's maximum visual requirements, making it not only more expensive than its direct competition, but less future-proof, too. Even so, the Razer's 14-inch Blade is its best gaming laptop yet...

The oh-so-portable 14-inch Razer Blade has got you covered when you want to take your gaming on the road, with an Intel Haswell processor and the latest Nvidia graphics.

Yeah, it’s a $1,999 laptop, but that’s a dollar cheaper than Toshiba’s far less interesting KIRABook, which didn’t even have fancy green keyboard backlights. Come on!

With both Intel’s Haswell and Nvidia’s new 700M-series components shrinking and sipping less power, the super-portable, 14-inch, gaming laptop revolution is about to begin.

Fast forward to 2013 with Razer's third laptop, and it looks like a peripheral manufacturer might actually be setting a new bar for the PC. The new 14-inch Razer Blade (which starts at $1,799) is thinner than many ultrabooks, but manages to run both...

Un loup dans la bergerie. Les ordinateurs portables de jeu n'ont pas nécessairement à être gros, épais, lourd et imposant. Razor démontre qu'il est tout à fait possible de rentrer un concentré de puissance dans...

Le Razer Blade 14 pouces est une bonne idée mal concrétisée. Sa légèreté et sa finesse sont des atouts indéniables face à ses concurrents. Concurrents avec lesquels il rivalise sur le plan de la puissance...

Thanks to ever-improving processor technology, we are witnessing the birth of a new genre of ultra-slim and ultra-portable gaming notebooks. The MSI GE40 2OC Dragon Eyes was the first ultra-portable gaming netbook we have reviewed. Gaming notebooks used...
