During yesterday’s flagship presentation, Razer announced two new iterations on their critically-acclaimed Razer Blade 15 laptop. The new base model offers a second performance tier at a cheaper entry point.
The Razer Blade 15 base model includes a dual storage configuration with a m.2 SSD + 2.5-inch HDD, providing both blazing speed and generous storage capacity. Users looking for even more storage will be able to upgrade both storage components.
This model of the Razer Blade 15 offers a new single-zone RGB keyboard that supports full key backlighting Powered by Razer Chroma™. The 0.78-inch thin chassis accommodates a Gigabit Ethernet port for enhanced connectivity, while allowing for a bespoke heat pipe thermal management system.
Gamers can enjoy the signature Razer CNC aluminum chassis, an NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 Max-Q design graphics card, an 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-8750H 6 core processor, 16 GB of upgradable system memory, and a 15.6-inch thin bezel Full HD (1920 x 1080) 60 Hz refresh rate display, starting at US$1,599.
In addition to the base model, Razer also unveiled the Mercury White limited edition Razer Blade 15. This laptop boasts a new, matte white finish and the same specs that are found in the advanced Razer Blade 15 model. You can check out its sleek look right here.
For those interested in purchasing either iteration on the Razer Blade 15, the base model is available now, and the Mercury White model will be available in limited quantities during Q4 later this year.
