    A MBP for gamers, October 9, 2012

    Pros:
    -The build quality and attention to detail on the laptop is exceptional, rivaling the MBP. It’s one of the only windows laptops in existence where you can tell a lot of thought and care went into the design and build.
    -Fan noise level is decent even under load.
    -It’s light and thin enough to put in a bag and transport on a regular basis.
    -It’s got a powerful cpu and gpu capable of driving even graphically demanding games at smooth framerates, and completely demolishing anything system-friendly like Torchlight 2 or League of Legends.
    -SSD caching makes many common tasks extremely fast.

    Cons:
    -Battery life tends to be a bit short even when not gaming.
    -No second audio port for my headset.
    -Up/Down directional arrows are dinky. Games often use the d-arrows, so this is suboptimal. It could be solved by a ‘directional arrow’ setting for the switchblade, but they curiously omitted such a setting. Speaking of which…
    -Switchblade UI is fairly immature and lacks vital customization options as of now. Seems like something that will be fixed eventually, but I would prefer a cheaper laptop without the switchblade. Most gamers are going to attach a gaming mouse, and gamers don’t really need flashy optimus buttons because they memorize their hotkeys.

    Conclusion:
    The Razer Blade fundamentals are strong–specs, build quality, design, portability. There is nothing else like it on the market. The immature and expensive switchblade ui holds it back from greatness.

    Update:
    I’ve found out how to customize the switchblade UI buttons, and the functionality I wanted (the ability to attach custom macros and pictures to buttons on a program-specific basis) is there, I just wasn’t able to figure it out by messing around. This is interesting and negates a couple of my criticisms, but I think I still would have preferred a less expensive Blade without it. Also, apparently the audio jack is combined line-in and audio. Not as convenient as two jacks, but better than what I thought.

    Update2:
    After using the laptop for a few weeks, I’ve definitely come around on the switchblade top buttons. I’ve created a variety of macros for games and normal windows applications, and being able to tag them with custom text and pictures has really upped my productivity. I’ve raised my review to 5 stars from 4, although I think the switchblade software still has a ways to go.

    After searching and reviewing gaming laptops for a few weeks. I finally decided on the Razer blade and here is why: I needed a gaming laptop and wanted something that would run games with no problem. I needed something that was light and thin that I could take with me during my international travels. This was a great choice for me. Bottom line is this is a gaming windows mac book.

    a lot of bang for a lot of buck, October 24, 2012

    I had been wanting a “gaming” laptop for ages. When you look at other products they all share the same flaws: brutally heavy, horrible style, overpriced. When the original Razer was released it offered promise but I held off. I’m glad I did. For a 17″ laptop this thing is light. Don’t misunderstand me, you won’t forget this thing is in your backpack (oh and good luck finding a backpack it will fit in) or on your lap. Speaking of which, yes you can flop on the sofa with this in your lap and fire up battlefield 3. Safety pro tip, buy a decent lap tray or flesh burns will ensue. Now what is amazing is you can surf the web, check email, IM, watch vids on youtube for a couple of hours (on battery) with this thing in your lap. Hardly any fan noise and it stays cool. My old HP netbook runs hotter! The perfectly machined aluminum body works as an awesome heatsink and feels amazing. All the style point of a Macbook. Build quality is perfect. The touchpad is brilliant.

    Now for the minuses: The 17″ screen is huge and awesome but I think a 15″ version might be more sensible. No HDMI out. Deal breaker? Nope, but maybe v3 could have one so i could hook it up to my desktop monitor. Some will complain about the lack of a dvd. I don’t. You might want to think about the hassle of an external drive. Price: she ain’t cheap but when i priced upgrading my desktop machine versus having a more portable machine I think it was worth the extra cost. You might not.

    One unknown item is long term battery life. I hope the internal battery lasts a few years at least but when it does come time to replace i’m not sure of the options. It appears sealed inside, the entire bottom is attached with very small allen head machine screws. A complete teardown would be required to replace and thats mostly likely something you have to ship off and wait awhile on.
